romantic wedding at ballyfin

One of my best wedding photos. My bride having a quiet moment.

I love this photo because of the light from the large bay window in the most spectacular setting of the gold room at Ballyfin House.

On of my best wedding photos is this one taken at Powerscourt House and Gardens on a warm sunny evening in July. Everything is just perfect, the beautiful lightand with the most amazing backdrop of these two horses and sugar loaf mountain in Wicklow.

I always say that you should be yourself and nothing posed.

This photo shows that this is the best approach to capture, natural, romantic wedding memories.

My best wedding photos

It is one of my best wedding photos. This one is probably a surprise to a few of you because it doesn’t fit in with most of my images’ romantic and soft feel. I feel so strongly about this photo because it represents my photography past, of days spent in a dark room. It is such a magical photo that it is impossible to plan. For me, the closest to what they call “the decisive moment,” a term first used by one of my photography gods Henri Cartier Bresson.

My best wedding photos

In the previous photo, I told you about my days spent in a dark room, and the art of black ad white photography that has always been in my heart.

I believe there is a strong revival on its way that will show that black and white images are even more “timeless” than colour photography.

I adore this photo because it is created only with soft light and no gimmicks, and I believe it will easily stand the age of time.

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

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!

5 Castle Wedding Venues in Ireland with something special

There is something undoubtedly transformative about stepping into a castle. Perhaps it’s the thick high battlements protecting you from the outside world, the history, or the secret passageways and hidden tunnels? Or even more so…sleeping in one and getting a feel for the romance of times gone by, experiencing the privilege that past occupants living their pampered lives with servants all around? Here are some of my top choices of Castle Wedding Venues in Ireland you might want to spend your wedding night in!

5 Castle Wedding Venues in Ireland 

Ashford Castle

No expense spared for the big day!

A celebrity favourite, this is the ultimate wedding destination in Ireland…just ask James Bond, Pierce Brosnan! Take the castle on an exclusive hire basis and really go for the full princess option! The castle offers 83 bedrooms, many facing Lough Corrib, plus a very romantic Lakeside Hideaway Cottage.

If you want privacy, Ashford allows you and your wedding party the full castle experience without interruption. Don’t miss out on the estate’s unforgettable activities, including falconry, equestrianism, golf, river cruising, fishing and spa treatments; you will not be bored and, in fact, you may want to stay for more than just the weekend!

Glin Castle

Traditional small family wedding

Overlooking the River Shannon and hills of County Clare, this unique historic property, home of the Knights of Glin for over 700 years, is Irish charm at its best. Compact, with 15+ en-suite bedrooms, perfect for a small family wedding; don’t just stay for one night, make it a proper celebration and stay for the week…you will not regret it!

Family portraits and Irish pictures line the walls, and the library bookcase has a secret door leading to the hall and the very rare flying staircase. Best of all, the village is just 5 minutes’ walk away; the locals will have a few stories to share with you!  Glin is so good, you will want to bring all the family back for your anniversary!

Turin Castle

Just the two of you

If you want the full fairytale wedding, then this is the real deal, with a grand hall complete with authentic armour and weapons. You can squeeze a few more into this castle, up to twelve, but why? Elope and just have the castle for an intimate wedding for two. If you want to go Medieval in County Mayo, the owners Marnie and Brendan know how to look after their wedding guests and there is a wonderful stone building at the back of the castle, perfect for the ceremony.

The Black Castle

Rustic wedding for two

If you just want to turn up to your private, historic 16th-century tower, with your own personal wedding planner, The Black Castle will allow you to experience a castle wedding as it was several centuries ago!  YES, this is “The Real McCoy“! The Great Hall takes you back into the 16th century, with no electricity, plumbing or wi-fi. You will have to save your Insta pics for later! 

Your ceremony takes place in the candlelit Great Hall, warmed by a huge cavernous fireplace with a roaring fire under a stone-vaulted ceiling. Overnight, you will be provided with candles and a supply of fuel for the fire. The bespoke oak, half-tester, king-size bed is supplied with Egyptian cotton sheets and luxurious bedding. Yes, you sleep in the Great Hall!

Belle Isle

Location on the shores of Lough Erne

Originally built in the 12th century as a Norman keep, Belle Isle, this now, 17th-century castle on an idyllic island in Northern Ireland’s Fermanagh Lakelands, is an enchanted hideaway offering a romantic, old-world charm, while the estate’s 400+ acres of rolling hills, flowering meadows, tranquil gardens, and views of Lough Erne take you to a different world. Twenty-seven overnight guests in thirteen individually, beautifully-decorated bedrooms, allow for a lovely, intimate family wedding. You can split the castle up into two parts if your group is smaller.

I think everyone would secretly love to feel like King and Queen on their wedding day! Well, now you can…all at these Castle Wedding Venues in Ireland!
