Romantic Irish Wedding Inspiration

A few months back I had the chance to visit Dublin and experience the charm of Ireland for myself. And now thanks to Katie Stoops Photography and Jemma Cassidy my itch to hop a flight and head back is more fierce than ever. They put together this wildly romantic Dublin-based shoot, and the full gallery is the perfect place to kick off your St. Paddy’s celebration.


From Katie Stoops… Set within a crumbling massive 19th century abandoned home, Jemma Cassidy of HipHip events in Dublin designed a shoot that was filled with character and a mysterious elegance. We were enchanted with the visual of a stunning model who had a lightness about her against the heavy features that this building so desperately wanted to hold onto. The tarnished brass and gold complemented the rich jewel tones in the table setting & florals.

We had the duo from Mad Uncle Harry play in the house and the music simply echoed through the massive rooms creating a hauntingly beautiful experience where everyone wished they were actually getting married at that moment.

Dublin Elegance from Pretty As A Picture + The Bridal Lounge + Christina Brosnan

If I could, I would step into this gorgeous shoot, and live in it forever. It’s the perfect mix of elegance and sophistication mixing and mingling with a color palette that will stand the test of time – all crafted beautifully by the team behind the gorgeousness - The Bridal LoungePretty as a PictureThe Garden, Powerscourt and Christina Brosnan (to name a few). It’s inspiration overload in the best possible way, and really, what more could you ask for? See it all here.

The inspiration continues with this gorgeous film from Best Day Productions

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!

Amalfi Coast Wedding at Villa dei D’Armieto from Jillian Modern Photography

I was lucky enough to spend a few days of my honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, and I can honestly say I left a little piece of my heart there. It’s pure heaven. Every little bit of the beautiful coastline wrapped me up and made me want to stay forever, so when I laid eyes on this wedding from Jillian Modern Photography? I was a goner. I got completely lost in all the Italian goodness, and I don’t regret one bit. Because this pretty fête captures so much of what I loved about that gorgeous place topped off with a Bride in a Vera Wang gown – officially checking off all my weaknesses. See so much more here.

From Jillian Modern PhotographyThis wedding is 100% DIY, all details were tended to by the bridal party on the morning of the wedding. It was a fun team effort! Lemons… lemons… and more lemons! And if you have ever been to Sorrento you will know why. The entire peninsula is covered by lemon trees. They incorporate the lemon into everything that you eat or drink. I had also fallin in love with the color green, and when we went to see the Villa dei D’Armieto, the interior used this color everywhere in its details.
