A delightful day celebrating Danielle & Derek at Tinakilly Country House & Hotel.

For this month’s blog we are taking a look back on the beautiful wedding of Danielle and Derek which took place at Tinakilly Country House. This is such a popular choice for many Irish weddings as it manages to exude elegance but also intimacy simultaneously; I mean what a stunning back drop!Danielle with her gorgeous bridesmaids Carol, Joanne & Lisa starting the celebrations after a morning of make-up pampering by Ailbhe Lynch & hair styling by Sarah Boyle. The deep green of the Folkster Bridesmaids dresses compliment the hues of the bouquets perfectly; an aesthetically pleasing choice for a Winter wedding.Bridal BouquetFor Danielle’s bouquet, we didn’t hold back, we packed in an array of textures and colours to really make the boldest statement. We picked Calla Lilies, Roses, Santini Chrysanthemum, Ranunculus, Lisianthus, Astilbe and Leucadendron.Bridal CarSome lovely moments of Danielle & her father outside the church just prior to the ceremony captured by Derek O’Rourke of Memento Photography. 

Moments of the ceremony highlighting some of the floral details; we used a combination of eucalyptus, acacia and some ferns mixed with smaller elements from Danielle’s bouquet to help keep the decor cohesive throughout.

Such beautiful shots of the wedding parties; Derek is so committed to capturing all aspects of your wedding. He focuses on making sure you enjoy your special day not having to compromise or miss out on any of the fun whilst still producing the most gorgeous pictures; definitely one to consider when planning your own wedding.A signature of Tinakilly House is creating personal, tailor-made, bespoke celebrations in a unique atmosphere so it feels like no two weddings are the same. I always love working at this venue and adding to the already beautiful interiors, we provided some additional winter foliage to the reception room to compliment the green colour palette.These florals are definitely a favourite of mine; I just love the colours, the richness and the vibrancy and in this case less is not always more….the more we could pack in the better!!

A gorgeous wedding for a beautiful couple; beyond grateful to have played a small part in their day. Cheers to Danielle & Derek xx
