From Ciara O'Halloran... When KT Merry got in touch to say she would be traveling to Ireland and would like to collaborate on a shoot, I jumped at the chance to get involved! Castle Leslie is a shining example of the stunning locations that Ireland has to offer, so I was so excited to push the styling boundaries, melding the grandeur of the castle with the timelessness of the landscape. We focused on a soft and muted palette, enhancing the lush green surroundings with accents of gold and blush tones. It was a wonderful experience getting to work together with KT and all the talented suppliers to inspire brides to embrace the elegance and sophistication of the look, no matter where they are in the world!
