“A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.” John Keats
So the big countdown has started in the DWS office. We are just weeks away from our very first show and we are so excited! We are working with so many amazing wedding suppliers and can not wait to welcome all our brides and grooms over the bank holiday weekend.
Last week we had the honour to work with some amazing talents in the wedding industry on a photo and video shoot in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, the fab venue where we will host our show. It was the perfect backdrop for the day and as luck was on our side it didn’t rain once!
The gorgeous Pearl & Godiva styled the shoot and brought their unique and creative touch to the day while the very talented Shane O’Neill from Aspect Photography was behind the camera capturing the magic of the day. We then had the absolute pleasure of Tomek and Linda, the passionate talents behind Cinematic Weddings who at this moment are editing hours and hours of filming to create a cinematic storyboard that will be both poetic and filmic. We also can’t forget our fabulous beauty talents, the lovely Derval O’Brien from Ken Boylan Make-Up who created a stunning and understated look for our model and Niamh O’Rourke who not only styled the hair for the day but is also an up and coming millinery talent who created the headpieces for the shoot. We will be doing a feature on Niamh’s millinery over the next few weeks – she is without a doubt one to watch in the world of millinery design! A special mention must also go out to the wonderful Janet from Little White Dress and Suzanne from Myrtle Ivory who kindly supplied us with some stunning Temperley and Claire Pettibone dresses for this shoot. We also had the pleasure of working with two of the most innovative cake designers in Ireland – the talented Iseult from The Cake Stand created a beautiful cake and macaroon pops (very on trend!) and edgy cake and cookie designer, Kay from Kaleidoscope Bakery created more stunning cakes to add to the perfect backdrop. Be sure to keep an eye on the blog for features on The Cake Stand and Kaleidoscope Bakery coming soon.
It was such a fun day working with so many people who are just so brilliant at what they do. Be sure to come along and meet them in person at the show so they can bring their magic to your wedding.
In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of some of our photos..
