    The French Touch

    By Karen Birney

    So it's nearly two weeks until one of the biggest weddings of the decade (beside your own, obvs) and we in WeddingsOnline HQ are speculating about every inch of Kate and William's big day. Today it's been all about the bouquet.

    A Royal Wedding always has tradition at the heart of it, so with that in mind we see Kate opting for a pale bouquet, comprised of home-grown flowers. However we also think Kate will keep up with modern bridal trends for her day, so she might go with a very simple but romantic bloom, elegantly tied and with little or no extra detail. The most perfect flowers for this look are peonies and hydrangeas, which look infinately feminine and are a great look if you want something softer than a rose. We also think Kate will stay away from cascading flowers, so that she compliments, but doesn't take away from her dress (which we think will be a lot more demure than Diana's)

    Lily-of-the-valley may also make an appearance in the wedding flowers, Camilla Parker Bowles used this along with primrose in her dainty bouquet, and the flower was also famously held by one Grace Kelly, queen of bridal style, on her wedding day in 1956.

    There’s speculation that Fairtrade white roses from Kenya will be included, as that was where William popped the question while they were on holiday together!

    Princess Diana's bouquet was made up of stephanotis and gardinias, among other flowers, and also included a sprig of Myrtle, which is a royal wedding tradition dating back to the time of Queen Victoria.

    This is possibly where Kate can use some colour in her bridal wear without ruffling too many feathers! We've speculated that she may go for blue for her bridesmaids, to match the engagement ring that's made such a splash in the wedding world.

  • Il Divo Wedding! Belathee Photography

    Monday 26 April 2022 - Flowers, Real Weddings - Tags: bouquet, cake, stationery

    I came across Belathee Photography on my daily trawl through wedding blogs. I knew instantly that the unique boutique photography style would be perfect for our summer cover, so I emailed owners Dorothee and Anabel who responded within hours  and immediately started compiling options for me. The two were an absolute pleasure to work with and I am so thankful that we were able to use their work on our cover (see previous post). So to say thanks I thought I would show one of their stunning weddings that was featured on Style Me Pretty (and also happens to be the wedding of Il Divo's David Miller!). This wedding is so adorable...and chic...and cool and all the other adjective for absolutely amazing! Oh and guess what? The two are available to shoot weddings in Ireland!

  • The Perfect Bouquet?

    Friday 29 January 2022 - Flowers - Tags: bouquet, grey

    The dress fits like a gorgeous glove, the colour of the bridesmaids dresses is stunning and the way everything is coordinated is flawless. But for some reason...I think the flowers steal the show. This might be one of my favourite bouquets...ever (which is hard for me to admit as a die-hard hydrangea supporter). I don't usually like mixed bouquets, but something about this is really sweet. The colours are so complimentary, the arrangement is so natural, everything just works in a really organic way. As flowers should.

  • Vintage Glamour

    Wednesday 9 December 2021 - Real Weddings - Tags: vintage, blue, red, peacock, bouquet

    This wedding flawlessly marries each detail to their vintage theme. The bride is the best part (the shoes and lips are to die for!), but I have to say that the table numbers is a close second.

  • Shabby Chic Wedding

    Friday 20 November 2021 - Real Weddings, Decor Inspiration - Tags: bouquet, cake

    I thought I would end this long, rainy week with something sunny and beautiful...the dress is beautiful, the bride is beautiful (the groom....) the wedding is just plain beautiful. Found this on Style Me Pretty, but the bride is actually an amazing wedding photographer in her own right (Stephanie Fay).

    I learned from this exercise that I love peonies and hydrangeas...and any flower that looks like them.
