Luxury Irish Castle Wedding Inspiration
In the off-peak season it is always a delight to take part in some inspirational wedding editorial shoots, when teams of vendors can get together to be creative, network and generally also have some fun. When destination wedding videographer Emma K Films got in touch over the summer to ask if I would like to create a cake for a Luxury Irish Castle Wedding shoot at Luttrelstown Castle Resort in October, it was a definite yes from me.
Luxury Irish Castle Wedding Moodboard
Emma send a moodboard for the shoot, which spoke of neutral tones, modern elegant fashion and an overall romantic luxurious feel. A fabulous source of inspiration from which to create a wedding cake.
The Wedding Cake Design
One of the features of the mood board that captured my imagination was the oversized sleeves on some of the inspirational bridal gowns. The dress chosen for the shoot from Love Ellie Bridal, had similarly modern voluminous sleeves, a current bridal trend which I adore, on a sleek columnar gown.
I chose to recreate this bridal style (somewhat in reverse!) in the cake, with a ‘puffy’ pearl-covered base tier and smooth top tiers. Simple white sugar roses, similar to those in the bridal bouquet, were the only other decoration.
The cake was beautifully captured by photographer Ivana Patarcic, not least in this stunning image of the bride holding the cake, one of my favourites from the shoot!
The Wedding Shoot
The overall style of the shoot was exquisite. Simply elegant stationery was by Ivory Feather Designs while modern flowers in shades of white were by Total Flower Designs. Table settings were coordinated by Infusion Weddings.
Wedding Editorial Feature
With such modern romantic beauty, it was no surprise that this editorial shoot was snapped up to be featured on prestigious blog, Wedding Chicks.
