Recent Work…Coastal Shoot
& Expert View in BASH Magazine

You might remember this coastal shoot from a couple of months back that I styled with a dream team which included A New Leaf, Annette O’Brien and Upstyle Junkie, all beautifully captured by Anne-Marie Bouchard of AMBphoto? Well I’m very excited to share that it has been published in the wonderful new Irish wedding magazine BASH. As a blog obsessive I must admit it can be hard to get me excited about traditional wedding magazines, but the aim of BASH to be “a new kind of wedding magazine” is an understatement! It’s choc full of the kind of inspiration that makes my heart flutter, and is all the more exciting as it’s home grown here in Ireland under the baton of the fab Kate O’Dowd from Image Magazine. BASH-magazine-style-serendipity-feature I was more than a bit chuffed to be interviewed along side the images in an “Expert View” feature where I got to share some of my tips for planning your wedding like a stylist. You can see a peek of the feature below but don’t hesitate to snap up a copy as I simply can’t do it’s loveliness and fresh perspective justice, you’ll just have to see it for yourself! My very favourite wedding creatives in Ireland have also shared their talent throughout the magazine so I was all the more honoured to be among such good company!


One such talented lady is Nathalie Marquez Courtney (wonderful photographer and deputy editor of Image Interiors mag) who asked me to come on board and style some shots for a nifty DIY project in BASH. I’m looking forward to sharing more about the inspiration for this shoot soon but in the mean time I just plan on lapping up the rest of this gorgeous publication and I can’t wait to see what the next issue brings. Hope you get to enjoy it and if you’re really observant you might just spot me and my other half Rian in a bonus shot captured by the sparkling Rincy Koshy. I’m realising more and more how lucky I am to have a husband who’s so tolerant of this styling adventure and lots of talented ladies to cheer me on to keep creating more!

      Thanks Sona, they did such a beautiful job putting the magazine together, there’s so many gorgeous articles, you’re going to love it!

  3. Well done, Ciara! You’re such a star. Wish I could get my hands on a copy over here. Could sure use some wedding inspiration!

      Thanks Holly, I’ll have to pop a copy for you in the post! Hope all the wedding plans are going ok, let me know if I can help with anything at all x

    I really must pick up a copy of Bash! Everything I’ve read about it online makes me think it must be a complete change from the usual kind of wedding magazine we get here in Ireland. It’s great to see such change in the wedding industry, and people like you (and Rian supporting you lol) are leading the way in gorgeous style :)

    • Ciara

      Thanks Eadaoin, I’m very excited about the magazine as it’s definitely going a different direction! it was an honour to be in there with so many talented Irish wedding folk. You’re dead right though, there’s no way I could be doing any of this work if Rian wasn’t so supportive and willing to give help whenever it’s needed (which is a lot at the moment!) I’m sure you find the same with Daniel, having supportive husbands makes everything possible :)

  5. Absolutely thrilled to be featured with you in BASH Ciara. What a wonderful magazine, spread and feature. Congratulations you!

    • Ciara

      And congratulations you! So delighted to have found a gorgeous home for the shoot, looking forward to being featured with you again at some point, hope you’re feeling great. Must try catch up over skype at some stage soon x
