When it comes to the wedding dress, we like to do things differently. You’d be hard pressed to find a run-of-the-mill design on our pages, and that’s just the way we like it! From original vintage frocks to contemporary handmade cuts, this beautiful selection of gowns Styled by West cork Designer Alice Halliday will leave you with plenty of inspiration for your special day.

Local, seasonal blooms were the order of the day, with foraged wildflowers and rambling foliage, we are in love with the magical creations by Ruth Fortune Flowers.

Plus the most delicious Vegan cake by the one and only Miam

This photo shoot was derived from a sense of the Victorian era, with focus on elegance and a touch of lace, lush flowers and fine accessories, set in the Historical Bantry House situated on the Wild Atlantic Way.
