If ever a Bride’s personality was reflected in her flowers then this Her for sure!! Laurie’s a great girl.. full of hugs, laughter, and love.. everything about her says “happy”.. no pushover- don’t get me wrong..she’s a lecturer with a science degree and a firm idea of what she likes and doesn’t like.. she confidently chose the tantalizing colours of sherbert with the meringue style textures of roses and ranunculus to carry on her Big Day and we delivered amidst the biggest of smiles and squeals of delight!!
Laurie & Barry wed in the sunshine (!!!) at The Honan Chapel late Spring 2012… and that was merely an affirmation of what was already a very strong and funfilled relationship..
Barry was the epitome of cool.. looking very smart indeed ..and grinning from ear to ear…
Family & Friends went on to party at Fota Island afterwards..
Greetings one and all from a very rainy Cork!!!
But who cares??
It’s been a fantastic week for Wild Floral Couture :o) at last our love of all things Vintage has found its niche … Last weekend we took part in The Spectacular Vintage Wedding Fair at the Imperial Hotel in Cork and Boy! – did we have to do some talking!! We met a horde of fabulous people , some getting married, and some not, but plenty who loved our vintage themed floral designs and accessories.. there was much ‘ooh-ing’ and ‘aaah-ing’ about everything, from our Steampunk props to the ‘fleet’ of vintage cars, our birdcage designs to our beautifully scented ‘tussie mussies’ of hyacinth and lavender.. We were ‘on fire'( those of you who know me will get the irony of that!!)
So firstly let me say ‘Thank You’ to everyone who came to visit us at our stand.. and to Kate from Bella Bleu Bridal who organised the event.. We loved it!!! looks like a big demand for the wildflower look this year- which of course is very vintage.. lots of you loving the scented flowers , the lilac ‘Armando’ Roses, the Tiffany Tree dripping with diamonds and pearls… and our quirky table names- and we had such fun meeting you all !! So with this in mind.. I’ve uploaded a whole load of photos of bouquets and decor we’ve designed and created over the last year or so in various venues around Ireland so you can get an idea of the wealth of creativity on the team…. We hope you enjoy it.. do feel free to contact us if you want to come and visit our little haven of history… we’re in the Old Ford Factory in Cork City- unfortunately by appointment only so just give us a call on 0860667298 or email Jill on firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re SO excited about 2013/2014 -it’s already Rockin’ and its still only January!
We’ll also be attending the Wedding Fair at Fota Island Hotel on Feb 24th , so come and have a chat and a look at more ideas, both at our stand and in the Golf club – perfect for smaller weddings/civil ceremonies.. we look forward to meeting you all- again or for the first time!!
Oodles of vintage loooove, from the Wild Crew xx

At Last!! The long awaited pictures from the Steampunk Bridal Shoot at Bantry House … Una and Jill gathered every bit of remotely Steampunk Style props with some divine antiquified flowers, squashed it all in the super Skoda and hit the High road to Bantry! And what a day we had…the sun actually shone for most of the day and in between shooting the view of bantry bay was inspirational.. not just that… our surroundings within the beautiful Bantry house lent themselves fantastically to the theme of the shoot..
We’d been exploring the Aesthetic style that is known as Steampunk in the studio in the weeks preceding the shoot and when we got the call from Kait Husman of http://www.chemistryphotography.com/ we were hopping around like 2 clockwork bunnies.. What is Steampunk ???…The term originated in the late 1900s as an imaginative combination of Victorian style & science with modern day technological knowledge.. think HG Wells or Jules Verne, or even more recently Sherlock Holmes or The City of Lost Children.. Its got a little bit of sci fi, a hint of fantasy and a lot of creativity.. its a little dark, with a lot of lace, gears and Steam! You’ll love it!
So meander on down through the pictures they appear on www.rocknrollbride.com and revel in the collaborative creativity of some of Irelands most inspired artistic minds- representing both themselves and the wedding industry … Enjoy!! and there’s even a video!
