Connemara Bridal shoot – Part 1

August 16, 2015

This three part shoot was inspired by the rugged and enchanting landscapes of Connemara. Connemara is a place that excites and inspires me, and I really wanted to showcase what the region has to offer for weddings! For part one of the shoot, I partnered up with top class local vendors Vintage Pearl Bridal, Louise Farrelly Millinery, and the stunning Rosleague Manor Hotel. The bouquet was gathered by the hand the morning of the shoot and is created using a variety of wild flowers. We battled against the wind and rain to capture the images on the day, but in a place like Connemara, stormy weather only adds to it’s drama and charm.

Vintage Pearl Bridal is located in Galway  city, and is the most unique and intimate bridal shop around. The owner Michelle has such passion and love for what she does and it comes across in her exquisite selection of dresses and bridal accessories.  Michelle stocks both vintage and vintage style dresses and in the shoot below we showcased one of the authentic vintage dresses from the store. We also paired the dress with a beautiful head piece from Louise Farrelly Millinery who hand makes every had piece to order!

Now what can I say about Rosleague Manor except wow!? If you are looking for a unique, homely, immaculate and characterful place to hold your wedding in Connemara, then Rosleague is the place for you. The attention to detail in the whole house is second to none, and the gardens are simply breath taking! But, enough now of my words….time to let the images do the talking!
