The beautiful and romantic gown features lace bodice with open back and a flowing chiffon skirt – with a veil flowing in the wind! The perfect match to the Celtic love theme.
The florist focused on creating works that were wild, natural, and whimsical with a touch of mystery. The materials used were gathered from the wild and from the florists’ garden. One flower crown is on dainty covered wire and the other on a coarser stronger wire for more of an upright crown effect. The bouquet is done in a natural, delicate style to compliment the bridal gown. It was made with the use of a Holly Chapple egg. The florals in the hand tied bouquet feature blowsy delicate garden roses, all grown by the florist. The bouquet also included spirea, fern bracken, amaranths, millet, clematis, nicandra, physocarpus, scabiosa, scented geranium, and rose hips.
The makeup look is a classic, warm toned bridal look with a pop of unexpected colour. An emerald green eyeliner with golden flecks was added to the lower eye creating a unique and classic combination. Keeping the rest of the colours across the face warm complimented the model’s stunning red hair
The hairstylist created a loose, voluminous braid-like style to fit with the theme. She wanted a wild, natural look and did this by looping and pinning many small strands of hair to almost create the illusion of vines in the hair. Small flowers were placed throughout the braid.
Last, but certainly not least, are the utterly adorable little people in the weddign party! The small wreath on our flower girl is perfect and we can’t say enough about the blue tweed coat on our ring bearer.
