Confetti Magazine’s Summer 2017 issue has just hit the stands and we are buzzing to show you all some of the photos we took from the romantic styled shoot featured in this issue! So here we go 😉

The location for this shoot was Lough Rynn Castle, one of Ireland’s premier castle hotels situated in Co. Leitrim. Dating back to more than 200 years, this Victorian manor boasts stunning details of a luxurious time long past that made it a perfect venue for this collaborative display of talent and beauty. Styled by the ever so talented Grace Campbell of Grace & Saviour and the equally creative Christina Brosnan behind the lens, we knew this project was going to be of epic proportions!

The brief that we received was very straightforward: no colours except shades of white, grey or black, and small accents of gold or bronze. With this in mind, we created a wedding cake that exuded a dainty and delicate feel yet very powerful in presence.

The colour palette was very simple and minimal to the point of being almost monochromatic. Almost. As I was excitedly browsing through the magazine spread, it certainly was nowhere near binary. It was like a mosaic, a work of art that was so beautiful and so romantic! Our stunning models Grace and Piaras, both from Morgan The Agency, executed the couple scenes with such intimacy that if I had not known them, I swear I would think they’re a real couple! They look so perfect, so in love. Grace was made even more stunning by the beauty squad: Stacey of Making Faces Makeup Studio and Lynda and Lauren from LS Hair Westport. The wedding dresses featured in the shoot were all very classy, elegant, and supremely chic! Soft shades of ivory, cream, and white were very evident which perfectly suited the look and feel that the team was going for.

With a variety of neutral hues, textures and beautiful ribbons, white florals are definitely far from boring. Here the incredibly talented Judi of Balla Florists created oversized bouquets of white fresh blooms and garden greenery.

Light toned and soft styles, classy tablescapes are an eternal favourite as demonstrated by Grace in this table styling.

When it comes to an all-white setting, less is definitely more. Neutral hues and shades of white, unassuming and unprejudiced, is so incredibly chic that will definitely raise your style ante!

Pics! The Glitter Studio 2017

Kicking off this year’s wedding season is the much awaited wedding fair in the Emerald Isle, OneFabDay‘s The Glitter Studio! An ensemble of some of Ireland’s top creative and talented wedding suppliers has come together for one full weekend in the CHQ Building in Dublin to turn every bride’s dream into a reality. Both team bride and team groom from different counties have witnessed Pinterest come to life and have definitely experienced a wedding fair like no other!

This year’s overall theme was It’s Written in the Stars and stylist extraordinaire Lesielé have definitely set the tone with these pretty origami installations.

The ever popular Bubbly Bar is back with a bang to make everyone feel super relaxed and really enjoy their TGS experience, vendors and visitors alike. Chin chin at 11AM! So with their bubbly on the one hand and camera phones on the other, our lovely guests then went on to their merry way exploring this life size (hashtag) wedding inspo.

Wedding fairs are a great place to meet suppliers face-to-face and see samples of their work under one roof. The Glitter Studio is no exception, however, what’s great about TGS is that because there are only a select few suppliers exhibiting, guests can actually talk to the vendors and ask as many questions as they want without having to worry of not being able to talk to other 400 suppliers and being completely exhausted at the end of the day. The whole venue have also been strategically organised into 3 thematic areas, guiding brides to the style that suits them best.

Top tips and expert advice were also offered through a series of workshops spread across the 2-day event. Workshops covered calligraphy, cake decoration, wedding styling, makeup masterclasses, and even wine tasting. All these to assist every bride and groom prepare for their big day!

Creativity have really exuded in all the stands and exhibitors showcased some serious Instagram-worthy designs and decors in their individual spaces. Greenery is Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year and this was definitely evident throughout the venue. Feast your eyes and see how vendors incorporated 50 shades of green into their exhibits!

Tons of other wedding essentials were also on display, from stationeries to wedding party decors and seriously stunning jewelries. This year, TGS have also introduced visitors to the art of decorative handwriting, an intimate clothing apparel, and gorgeous, gorgeous wedding shoes! I must say, our lovely brides were really spoilt for choice. Really!

Of course, what would a wedding fair be without wedding cakes? Bloggers’ favourites marble, metallic, and geode wedding cakes led this years wedding cake trends. Myself and my other cake designer pals have displayed a wide array of wedding cake styles and designs for our brides to have more than enough inspiration to take away with them. Another great thing about TGS is that visitors get the chance to go on a sumptuous cake tasting adventure and we definitely made sure of that!
