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.

Ireland Inspiration Shoot

When St. Patrick’s day rolls around at SMP, we find ourselves scouring to find beautiful ways to inspire our readers. So when Amanda Wilcher  sent over this gorgeous Ireland shoot styled to perfection by Pearl & Godiva, we knew we had found our pot of gold in feature form. Stylish, sophisticated and overflowing with inspiration, this gallery is pinch-yourself-pretty. See it all here.


From  Amanda Wilcher Photography …Sometimes, the most perfect vision is the most simple. For this shoot, which took place on a day in early March, our vision was to come together to create images that were without complexity. Our story was told with a beautiful woman, natural flowing florals and the hint of a great love.

Creamy, pale and quietly sculptural in shape the girl danced in places of light, in the morning garden. The sun had bleached to the palest shades of nougat and apricot in the orangerie. We placed miniature still lives in a pride of place where they just caught the light and created arrangements of treasured finds, added twigs and flower stems and the whole thing just came to life. Claire Pettibone’s, covetable gowns flourished the garden scenes. Fragile, petal splashed gowns, of course.

Pale melancholic florals, and pure velvets was a beautiful morning glory. Organic elegance, and a understated vision gave this shoot an opulent innocence. A bejewelled and oxidised crown languished in the daylight to shine anew. This girl wasn’t nocturnal at all, she just came down to earth.

Romantic Grey & Gold Wedding Inspiration

Most girls consider Paris the ultimate locale, but for me, it’s the countryside of Ireland. And while it may not have a twinkling tower or cafes on every corner, there’s a rugged, wildly romantic beauty that can’t be explained…unless of course you’re looking at the work of Pearl & Godiva + D’Arcy Benincosa. They captured the very essence of my Emerald Isle love affair, and it all continues right over here.

‘In you the rivers sing and my soul flees in them
as you desire, and you send it where you will
aim my road on your bow of hope
and in frenzy I will free my flock of arrows’ Pablo Neruda

When we first sketched the shoot’s inspirational material into existence, from fragments of history and a silhouette of a magnificent, awe inspiring and astounding powerful girl. I can’t help to think that we were heavily inspired by Jeanne D’Arc with her powerful visions, four centuries later still a legendary figure.

This what became of our vision – A renaissance of a divine inspiring beauty in the embodiment of a woman standing with interwoven arms – in her acquired sancity. Her style and soul was an antidote, it lifted, it inspired, it educated – she opened her heart to the lights of heaven. Her pilgrimage was her exquisite purity, and her clothing made from humble and raw materials, layers of slub muslin, with layers of tulle, nourished by the softest lace, dignified by jewels that surrounded her unpretentious soul. We wanted to tell you of blossoming and buds.

The honest simplicity of these ruins are redolent of prayer and clairvoyant intensity, she a poetic serenity – as she perches in amongst the ruins. If she leaves in her place remains another kind of beauty.

An old manuscript we found detailing the life of Jeanne D’Arc was a real treasure of a find and gave us a clear insight into an astounding courageous woman. Beauty is essential to her well being, and a fundamental component of our life. Our focus in this shoot was to create a quietly, confident beauty. We live in a world of opposites pulling at us at all times, but we wanted to show that beauty alone has no opposites. I don’t think one can tire of beauty, there truly can never be enough of it. There is nothing capricious about this girl and we love this shoot for the sensual quality and the emotions it elicits.

It is enough to breathe the perfection of our being and stand in awe before the miracle of life. To marvel at it, is simply enough.
