Romance at Killeavy Castle
You wouldn’t think this hidden gem was nestled away in the woodlands when turning off from the motorway. The idyllic and oh so charming castle that is Killeavy is where we spent our Sunday last week. Killeavy Castle has become a venue I have heard so much about since re-opening, and I can see why couples instantly fall in love upon arriving here. The castle has recently been restored and has the best of both with being historical yet modern. A stylish and uber picturesque castle using whitewash stone, a marquee surrounded by rustic countryside that offers space to both larger and intimate weddings. I can see alotta ticks on the page with this venue…
Sunday was spent with Amina & Ahmed – the cutest duo who are set to elope this October. It was SO NICE to be back doing styled shoots again and seeing some of our new arrivals on Amina. Honestly that girl can wear anything! One regret – Should of packed more dresses!
BUT we brought the gorgeous Valentina by Prea James + Andy by Made with Love teaming the look with our WIFEY jacket by Chosen. I love the Valentina by Prea James and so glad to offer this style to our brides. Our collection pieces by Prea James intuitively mirror our girl and the lifestyle she leads – making her own decision on how she wants to be styled on her wedding day. This modern approach to bridal can still work at home and in our venues.
The hand beaded Valentina is adorn with embellishments, tulle and sheer sleeves. A cut out of the waist flatters the body and highlights the natural shape.
Look 2 is another new arrival making a lot of noise in our studio. Brides LOVE the square neck, it’s a style I can’t see leaving us any time soon. A square neckline flatters a larger bust, while giving shape to a smaller bust. It’s a win all round. Andy by Made with Love has gone a bit extra with their shimmer lace fabric, exposed boning and square back cut out. Team Andy with a veil for a bridal day look, and well this dress was born for the night – the perfect dress to steal the limelight in on the dance floor.
