Ireland is the land of dreams to me. So when I came across this stunning Irish shoot captured by D’Arcy Benincosa and styled by Ciara O’Halloran of Style Serendipity I felt I needed to pinch myself. Because this, my lovelies, is so pretty you’ll think you are actually dreaming. Get lost in all the lovely right here.

From D’Arcy BenincosaNothing says Ireland like ancient castles and blushing brides. With the warmest summer here in eighteen years, our stylist found inspiration away from her usual leanings towards muted shades of green and grey and instead, transformed the garden grounds to showcase an affection for sun soaked forest green, offset with aubergine, pale citrus and coral. Malahide Castle has a kaleidoscope influences, owned by the same family for 800 years who filled the ornamental gardens with exotic plants and trees from the world over. With the dazzling sunshine, charming accessories from Avoca and a delicate mantilla lace veil, this classic Irish shoot has all of the Irish history, elegance and heritage you’d expect, but with a twist of Mediterranean magic!
