Bridal Photo Shoot Set Deep in the Irish Countryside

The Commission:

In April we were asked by US based photographer Jennifer Carroll of As Ever Photography to design a wedding bouquet for a bridal photo shoot she was planning in Ireland. Over the next month or so we emailed backwards and forwards to get a good fix on the look Jennifer wanted us to create.

The Brief:

Jennifer’s brief was to create a bride’s bouquet that be in harmony with a west of Ireland landscape in summer. She wanted to keep the look very natural using a neutral, pastel palate and have us design a deconstructed, loose style bouquet. We were to avoid vibrant colours or a structured look but after that the design was up to us.


The Bouquet Design:

Taking the brief on board we designed a free flowing hand tied bouquet using a colour palate of creams, greens and coral pinks. As feature flowers we choose Roses, Celosia Bombay and Lisianthus. To ¬†add movement, texture and to match the natural “west of Ireland” look we used Veronica, Gravillia, Astilbe, trailing Ivy and tall seed bearing grasses.


The Results:

At the last minute the shoot location changed from the west coast to an ancient ruined fortress in Co. Laois РThe Rock of Dunamase, but despite this change we think the final result worked out beautifully.

Jennifer’s expert photography skills have perfectly captured a dreamy, romantic and moody feel and we think our bouquet perfectly reflects this mood and it’s surroundings – we hope you like the results too.
