If I had a pound for every time I said this I’d be, well, rich but do you know how lucky we are to have such amazingly talented wedding suppliers in Northern Ireland? They really do go above and beyond brides expectations and their creativity knows no bounds. Today I’m delighted to share an inspirational styled shoot by Simon at Shoot For The Moon and his fabulous team which includes his lovely wife, Kathryn from Candytuft Cakes.
Based on the quote, ‘What does your heart tell you’ by JRR Tolkien, Simon chose the mystical setting of Orange Tree House, and together with his team proved brides really should follow their heart when it comes to planning their wedding day. There are no rules when it comes to planning your day, but one thing Simon and I both believe is that you (and your other half, obviously!) should have a day that is true to you, the day that you want and you should never feel pressurised by family or friends to keep everyone happy – it’s your special day.
Kathryn’s Instagram feed is one of my favourites, and these cakes give you a sneak peek of why! She chose an alternative bunch of beauties including bundt cakes and madeleines – I adore the European feel from the selection.
In keeping with the current trend for large, oversized bouquets Marie at Marie Cafolla Flowers created a lush and abundant bouquet and floral crown- we love our floral crowns around here! Marie used a selection of ranunculus, Menta roses, Jana spray roses, Astrantia, Ammi combined with lots of foliage of eucalyptus, olive leaf and Rosemary.
