Emerald Isle Inspired Photo Shoot
Inspired by Ireland and its enchanting combination of lusciously green rolling hills, scenic coastlines, fairytale castles, and a rich history dating back thousands of years, this intimate elopement is a modern fairytale of two souls coming together as one. With Strong Mansion at Sugarloaf Mountain providing the perfect castle-like backdrop, the styled shoot team combined ancient Celtic traditions such as a hand-fasting ceremony representing unity between the couple and how they become bound to each other. Silk ribbon from CLOTH, a shop based in Dublin City centre, symbolises their unity in marriage. For the shoot, the bride wore a sheer emerald-green maxi dress from Lulus, which was paired with elegant makeup by Kelsey Lacy. To accompany her irresistible dress, she was given a luxurious floral bouquet from Ory Florals, which featured a large gold succulent, polo roses, ruscus, and silver dollar seeded eucalyptus. To finish off her look, her hair was styled by JKW Beauty with white wax flowers and a small braid as a symbol of feminine power and luck. To tie everything together, a deep green invitation suite with a sparkling gold colour palette, gold vellum envelope, emerald embellishment and custom laser cut belly band was custom developed by JSD Invitations & Calligraphy along with his and her matching gold jewellery and watch from Colonial Jewelers.
