Growing up in a home where playing classical music was as natural as brushing your teeth, I realised early on that beauty and the arts were to be valued. After considering a career in interior design and then journalism, I finally settled on training as a classical violinist which has brought me immense pleasure as a teacher, and performer with Sound of Serendipity.

It was only when I set about planning my wedding with my wonderful husband Rian, that I realised my passion for creativity, aesthetics and design could all be combined through the world of styling.  And so Style Serendipity was born in October 2011, originally as a resource for the modern Irish couple looking for inspiration in creating a wedding experience that is as unique as they are (though I’m so grateful to now have readers from the world over!) Following on from the success of Style Serendipity’s first year, it has evolved into a sonnet about styling for weddings, interiors, prop and food shoots which has helped to shape my journey as a prop stylist in all those worlds.

I’m inspired by landscapes, texture, simplicity and elegance and get a thrill from creating and styling a photograph so that it tells a story. If you would like help in telling your story, whatever it may be, get in touch.
