Ireland Boho Chic Wedding Ideas

It is a great day over here at The Wedding Chicks! We have more sugar-coated eye candy for you to swoon over from Brosnan Photographic.

The entire set up took place at The Fern Cafe restaurant in County Wicklow, Ireland. Designed by the lovely ladies at The Bridal Lounge in Dublin, the scene features mismatched chairs in faded pinks, blues and greens, crystal chandeliers tied with ribbons and the most amazing floor to ceiling french paned windows with views over lush country gardens. Read on to see how they set up this to-die-for wedding shoot.

The initial inspiration came from the venue itself and from the eclectic range of vintage inspired and wildly colorful, chintzy wonders in the Avoca ranges (which we were allowed pilfer at will for the shoot – we were like kids in a candy shop bringing the concept to life!!) We mixed wooden bird houses, with elegant glassware, mismatched china and lots of coloured candle holders to create a ‘grown up’ tea-party feel, with the overall look being a ‘luxe-vintage-chic’. A miniature tree adorned with individual cards in a sparkling french vintage theme with the guests initials on the front, and table number on the back served as the escort table, and guests were welcomed with a vintage wooden notice board draped with jewels and pearls.

The cake table featured a wooden birdhouse to compliment the birds on the china plates, and assorted cake holders in simple white china – and again lots of colored glass candle holders to bring light and color – although nothing could take center stage quite like the amazing (and delicious) french fruit flan and tartlets!

The flowers couldn’t have been anything but wildflowers, and Deirdre from Ruby&Bloom used mixed heathers and dahlias with delicate wildflowers in vintage holders and birdcages that were flea market finds. The bride’s bouquet was a simple avalanche rose bouquet with lisianthus and freesia and bound with raffia and a luxurious smokey velvet bow to give an earthy yet luxe, boho feel.

The Bride wore a selection of dresses from White Orchid in Dublin complemented by beautiful hair and makeup by Aoife Callaghan Makeup Artist and Michelle Grimes. Michelle adorned Kamila’s hair with a beautiful silk flower corsage from which worked so perfectly with the overall look.

Ireland and Chicago Wedding Photographer Brosnan Photographic is a proud sponsor and preferred Wedding Chicks vendor.

  9. Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!
