Your wedding at Powerscourt House

(By Maria, The Event Design Company)

Inspired by a real Princess

If you’re looking for an elegant, timeless theme for your own upcoming wedding, surely a real royal couple’s visit to Ireland can serve as your inspiration.

This photoshoot was heavily influenced by Princess Grace and Prince Rainier’s visit to attend “Le Bal de Petits Lits Blancs” held in very same Powerscourt House in 1965.

In keeping with that historic event’s style and glamour, we opted for a classic and romantic theme that hinted at a royal occasion yet avoided any fussiness or obvious royal wedding cues. 

Making her as eye-catching as Princess Grace was that day, our bride’s stunning wedding dress from Marian Gale was augmented with an elegant Kinnor headband made from dozens of flowers individually hand-wired onto a silver double band, wrapped with satin ribbon. Graciously allowing his bride to be the belle of the ball, the groom looked elegant and understated in a stunning royal blue velvet dinner jacket from Louis Copeland. 

The luxurious, royal blue theme was also carried over into the table’s rich and vibrant blue and gold colour scheme. It features tapered Ester & Erik candles as well as exquisite stationery from Calligraphy by Laura.

The couple, table and event were styled by Maria from The Event Design Company. 

If you are hoping to get married in a luxury wedding venue, remember Powerscourt House is not only one of Ireland’s most unique and gorgeous venues, it’s one fit for a Prince and Princess / with a little royal history

My visit to Ballyfin Demesne

As a wedding photographer, it is difficult to put into words how beautiful Ballyfin Demesne is. This Irish manor house has been the dream wedding venue in Ireland for special brides and grooms. Since I first worked at this magic venue, I always want to go back. This hotel is a constant inspiration for my wedding photography.  My last visit to ballyfin demesne was in every way, special. Covid hit Ireland and a few days after my visit Ballyfin Demesne closed. No photo will show the real atmosphere of this iconic Manor hotel in Ireland. As a wedding photographer, I find it a privilege to show my view of Ballyfin Demesne.

Photos by wedding photographer Ballyfin, In Love Photography

I first heard about Ballyfin Demesne when it opened nearly 10 years ago. The next year I had a meeting with one of my couples in the gold room to discuss their wedding plans.  With all the little details and the exceptional, personal service, this place just blew me away.  Since then, I have worked a few times as a photographer at Ballyfin and for me this is the top wedding venue in Ireland.  This intimate country house hotel has everything for a smaller wedding in Ireland– A top experience for couples looking for the best of the best wedding venues in Ireland or even in the world.

From the moment you arrive at the gated entrance, you know this is a special place with 100 % privacy. After the gates open you drive for a while on a small road through the Irish Countryside, passing an ancient church, woodlands, and ponds.

Finally, you turn a bend and you see the hotel in the distance at the lake. It’s like a movie scene, which becomes even more special with the hotel staff waiting for you at the stairs greeting you with a warm Irish Welcome. It feels like a meeting with friends that will welcome your arrival with a glass of champagne.

During my visit to Ballyfin demesne I Imagined spending my morning relaxing in the gold room, decorated in an elegant French style, or reading a book on history in the warm library. Allowing myself to slow down, drinking a cup of coffee, and let all the details of the stunning hotel sink in.

The staff at Ballyfin will treat you with incredible kindness and hospitality. They are extremely professional and passionate about what they are doing, without pretentious. You are treated like friends and no request is too much to ask. Ballyfin is a showcase of the best hotel Ireland has to offer.

Lorraine Browne, Wedding Hairstylist, Ireland

Introduction | Lorraine Browne, wedding hair stylist in Ireland

I’ve been looking after Brides for years and years…. too many to mention.

I’ve always kept up my bridal work.

I think it is important for a bridal party to have an experienced hairdresser on their special day.

For me to be part of someone’s wedding day is a real honour and I know how lucky I am to be surrounded by joy and happiness every day.

For a bride sourcing a wedding hairstylist in Ireland, it’s important to find a hairdresser with the best skills, confidence, and calmness.

Brides don’t have to travel to a salon on their wedding morning, the morning is relaxed and flows – hair and makeup will come to you!

I usually speak or email with my brides at the point of booking and discuss the trial process in my studio in Enfield Meath. My trial takes 2 hours where we discuss a timetable for the wedding morning. Trial a few different looks and discuss hair care colour and style.



I have a selection of bridal hair accessories and jewellery in my studio and online shop

Shop – Lorraine Browne

Hair and a range of veils to try from @wildebydesign and clip-in extensions from @silverlininghair_extensions

I get to travel all over Ireland to wonderful venues.

As a freelance hairstylist, I have a great job that feeds my addiction to beautiful gowns, venues, food, and the soppy romance I can’t get enough of.

I couldn’t be better suited to what I do …. I’m obsessed with Weddings!

Weddings in France

Ohlala ! (Sigh) La France, la belle France!

What country in the world is more romantic, elegant, refined and picture-perfect than France? Hosting a destination wedding in France is a dream come true…Historical venues, World-class cuisine, Extraordinary wine, backdrops and scenery that magazine shoots are made of….

If you are considering France as your wedding destination then read below to get more ideas and inspiration…and if you haven’t considered France…well keep reading and maybe you will end up saying I DO in one of the most beautiful countries in the world after all! 

Our friends at Haute Wedding have compiled a short-list of venue styles that may pull at your heart-strings…Enjoy! 

Weddings in France by Haute Wedding

A guide to venue Styles in the most beautiful country in the world


France is home to thousands, literally thousands of chateau…ranging from fairy tale style castles, to medieval fortresses, Renaissance palaces, or residences that were owned or hosted royalty and nobility…

Chateaux can be either open to the public during the day for cultural visits, or private residences. They are usually filled with stories of centuries past, incredible architecture, intricate details, and a sense of grandeur.
Couples who consider a chateau wedding usually are drawn to an ambiance of opulence, elegance and history.

Chic Farmhouses

The French countryside in Provence  is dotted with countless renovated farmhouses radiating warmth, rustic charm, and serenity. Often nestled amongst vineyards, lavender fields, seas of sunflowers, or shimmering olive groves they are off the beaten path and a haven to celebrate a wedding over several days amongst close family & friends. 

Imagine a ceremony with striking natural beauty all around, followed by cocktails by the pool as a jazz band strums in the background, and dinner in a  stone courtyard or open-aired barn as the sun begins to set and the countryside turns from a golden glow to a soft orange hue before the sun sets making room for the glittering stars to appear magically… Provence is immersed in an atmosphere of tranquillity and romantic magic…timeless, forever. 

Hilltop villages, local bustling markets, azure blue skies, and terraces shaded by imposing plane trees make nice day trips for guests to explore the cafés, art galleries, wineries, and restaurants. 

Couples who consider a Chic Farmhouse wedding are usually drawn to a slower pace, and prioritize spending time with friends & family while appreciating refined luxury without being ‘too over the top’.

Mountain Chalets in France 

‘The Mountains are Calling and I Must Go’ – John Muir
The power, immensity, sense of adventure, and proximity to nature is like a magnetic pull in the French Alps. Peaks towering above 4000m, cascading glaciers, snow-capped peaks, colorful wildflowers, lulling sound of cowbells in the distance, dark green forests, altitude meadows….

Celebrating a wedding in the Alps is rarely even a question for couples who choose to marry there…it is a burning desire in the spirit that draws people to a place where they feel alive, at peace, and overflowing with energy and bliss that cannot be contained….

Venues of choice are often chalets or altitude restaurants with postcard perfect backdrops. High wooden beams, textured fabrics, crackling fireplaces, a cozy ambiance whether it be summer or winter….

Couples who choose to marry in the Alps  often look to share an experience with their loved ones. They are adventurous and appreciate the sheer beauty and pristine surroundings that nature has bestowed upon planet earth. Couples often choose to sprinkle in activities such as skiing, hiking, paragliding, rafting, rock-climbing, mountain biking or golfing into their wedding weekend adventure!

Seaside Luxury Hotels

The French Riviera  has crystalline blue-green waters, sailboats dotted in the bays and sumptuous villas secluded amongst the pines, citrus trees and palm trees…The Riviera as a whole is bustling, busy, glamorous, a place to be seen and rub elbows with jet-setters. 

The seaside luxury hotels on the Riviera are architectural masterpieces adorned with swimming pools plunging into the Mediterranean Sea, perfectly manicured gardens, rare sports cars pulling through the driveways, and terraces overlooking the shimmering diamond-like sparkling waters where celebrities, artists, and royalty have chosen to appreciate the finer things in life since the turn of the century.

Weddings on the Riviera do not go unnoticed…they are THE event to treat your guests to sparkle, fine wines, Michelin starred cuisine and opulence.
