A Classic and Timeless Wedding in Ireland – Chloé and Barry
Good Afternoon my lovelies,
This is the first inspirational wedding that we have ever featured on Bespoke Bride so we wanted to make sure it was a good one and i don’t think we will disappoint. We were absolutely astounded when we first viewed the photography for Chloé and Barry’s stunning wedding, which took place in Cavan, Ireland in October 2011. The couple opted for a day that would be classic and timeless “We didn’t want to look back in five or six years and feel sad with how dated they had become.”
Chloé wore a beautiful vintage style Jenny Packham dress, “Once I had bought my dress, everything else worked around that as I thought the dress was so incredible.”
“I had always had a Plum colour in mind for the bridesmaids, as I think it’s such a great choice for autumn and I loved the way it looked against the soft grey of their pashminas – which in turn tied into the silver hues of mine and Barry’s outfits.”
“I took a mood board to my Florist (who was brilliant!) as I had quite strong ideas about the bouquets. I love berries for autumn and I adore Calla Lilies, so both were incorporated along with some grey winter foliage and cream roses. I adored my Bouquet, it was so beautiful.”
“Other than the way the Wedding looked, we wanted the day to be a great experience for our guests, particularly as many of them had travelled so far, at great expense, to be with us. So we stuffed them full of food and drink and entertained them from start to finish. I hated the idea of anyone being bored or hungry as they are two of the things that I hate being most!”
“Finally it was really important to us to capture all of this perfectly, so we hired an incredible photographer called Eric Savoie from Savo Photography. He was excellent on the day and when we saw the end result, we were blown away by the stunning photographs that he had produced. They were more beautiful than we could have ever imagined and captured the story of our day perfectly.”
An absolutely beautiful day and we are honoured to have been given the opportunity to share it with our readers, huge congratulations to Chloé and Barry, and a special thank you to Chloé for taking the time to send all the information.
A special thanks to Eric Savoie for selecting the photography….
