It’s always a pleasure to feature the work of talented Irish creatives, and today’s styled inspiration shoot is no different. Conceived and created by Pretty as a Picture along with The Bridal Lounge and Brosnan Photographic, this chic Dublin celebration shows how much potential there is in our fair cities for creating a sophisticated and contemporary wedding. I was also honoured to be asked to play a role in the shoot and was delighted to put my musical skills to good use in the ceremony and first dance scenes. Rodolphe from Best Day Productions was on hand to bring the whole story to life, and eagle eyed viewers might just be able to spot me making my film debut! From the towering elegance of city hall to the fresh and classic colour palette, all captured in dreamy tones by Christina Brosnan, Irish wedding inspiration doesn’t get much better than this. Jane from Pretty as a Picture shares the lowdown on all the goodies and you can see more over on Style me Pretty!
From Pretty as a Picture…This is a sophisticated, elegant Dublin City wedding inspiration photo shoot. Our theme was classic elegance with green and black being the key colors used. The ceremony was held in Dublin City Hall, right in the middle of Dublin City centre. Renowned for it’s Georgian architecture, City Hall provided the perfect backdrop for the photographs, bringing some rich history into this modern wedding.
The bride and groom then moved to a stylish Michelin Star restaurant alongside Dublin’s canal for an intimate reception. For their first dance together a beautiful park was chosen. The bride changed her dress for her first dance and wears a beautiful black shrug to finish her outfit.
Custom illustrated stationery was created for the shoot. The couple’s story was illustrated and includes imagery of Dublin City, the canal and the couple themselves on a bellyband which wraps around the sophisticated invitation. An illustrated map was included outlining details of their special day.
A wedding dress portrait was also illustrated as a gift from the groom to the bride on the morning of their wedding depicting the brides dress, creating a beautiful keepsake for the couple of their wedding day.
A big thank you to all the high quality suppliers who participated in this shoot who helped make this happen!
