This was one of the most memorable weddings for me in 2013. It was a magnificent summers day in July and was the same day that the ring of Kerry charity Cycle race was on. Which meant that we were caught in the middle of it, as Kathryn and Jonny had chosen the beautiful town of Kenmare for their ceremony with the reception afterwards held at Dromquinna Manor.
Kathryn had 7 bridesmaids! Each wore a different dress with mad floral designs and colours. Really different and fun! The flowers were a combination selection of summer blooms in all colours from yellow sunflowers, ivory and coral peonies, pink hydrangea, blue Delphiniums, red roses, white daisies and wild foliage’s such as honeysuckle . Kathryn was great to work with as she was very trusting gave me free rein.
The boutonnieres were made up of Lavender and rosemary sprigs tied together with Raffia. Very casual and tied in well with the relaxed style of bouquets and arrangements.
The ceremony was held in Kenmare Church. We had galvanised buckets filled with wild flowers and colourful garden blooms. Little buckets on the pew ends and larger ones at the back of the Altar. The Altar arrangement was done in a wooden box instead of the traditional Altar piece.
I loved the working on these centrepieces. Kathryn’s family had been collecting little bottles and jam jars. They had stuck on little bits of hessian cloth and little lace bows and details on the jars before giving them to me to fill with flowers.
‘Pearl and Godiva’ had done the décor styling at the Manor house and supplied all the vintage tea pots, crockery and napkins.
The last bit of flower detail were little sprigs of fresh lavender and Rosemary on each Napkin.
This truly was a wedding to remember and I know that Kathryn and Jonny had an amazing day with all their Family and Friends. I enjoyed being part of this magical day:)
I have to mention the Photographer who took all these amazing pictures. David McClelland Photography. He did a fantastic job!
