When this gorgeous Ireland wedding inspiration shoot hit our inbox, we fell absolutely head over heels! A secluded countryside castle, hidden gardens, and ancient stone walls make for the most perfect setting for this Irish elopement inspiration. The details make it all even more gorgeous- a letterpress invitation suite dusted with gold, a marble wedding cake adorned by ripe fruit, and gorgeous, flowing florals. And to top of all off, everything was captured on film by Julie Paisley Photography. We can’t wait for you fall in love with this inspiration, just as we have!
At the height of summer with constant drizzling rain and over 17 hours of dappled sunlight Ireland is a gardener’s dream. The whole country is alive and green and blooming. Since our little Irish elopement was taking place in a perfectly secluded country side castle we had to take advantage of the property’s lovely hidden gardens for our ceremony and celebration. Even the outdoors in Ireland have a certain regal flair – ancient stone walls, manicured boxwood labyrinths and carefully planted color patterns that had to be matched with wedding details that felt a touch more grand than you typically garden affair.
To add a little royal drama to the day we chose a full hand beaded gown in gold with deep lips and a vivid dahlia bouquet. Even the letterpress invitation suite was color washed and dusted with gold & the marbled cake made even more magnificent piled with ripe fruit. When eloping to Europe it’s the perfect time go a little over the top with touches to make the day feel special and just a little foreign. Paired with the sweet natural surroundings and the madly in love couple our Irish elopement was both beautifully old world & completely intimate.
