Emerald Green Wedding Dress & Pretty Pink Flowers ~ A Vintage Inspired City Wedding in Ireland…

Hey my loves, I do hope you're all well 🙂 Here is something a little different for a Friday afternoon – a gorgeous emerald green wedding dress!   

Siobhan and Mick tied the knot last year with a civil ceremony held at a popular gourmet food venue in Dublin, Fallon & Byrne.  The couple, who met through an online dating site, celebrated their day with friends and family and filled their space with the prettiest flowers ever, by the clever people over at Appassionata Flowers.

Siobhan wore her auburn hair in 1940s victory roll style, and her dress was made by Irish designer DePaor Designs.   She also wore a vintage fur stole and diamante brooch and net gloves.

I love the vibrancy of these photographs, and think Siobhan looks absolutely fantastic! 🙂

The flowers form this wedding are just so pretty; a mix of sorbet colors and berries.  {I shall be pinning these images to my hearts content a little later!!}.  All the florals were provided by Appassionata Flowers


Siobhan's stunning sapphire/diamond/platinum ring was designed by a UK jewelry maker who based it on a design of a Cartier ring from 1910. Her something blue was a little gift from her sister who gave her Jo Malone's Bluebells perfume…

Siobhan decorated the venue at Fallon & Byrne with candles and frames she had picked up throughout the year, and vintage style bunting from Not On The High Street

The little sequined favor boxes added a splash of Bollywood color to the room and were from a local shop Seabourn Designs…

I always love seeing a bride in a coloured wedding dress, is anyone else wearing something 'not' white {or cream, or ivory!} on their wedding day? What colour is making your heart shine ladies? I'd love to get some colouful chit-chat going 🙂

Have a gorgeous rest of your day folks 🙂

Love as always,
