Joanna and Ryan chose the Cloughjordan House to make their wedding dreams were about to come true. And with fun accommodations like converted cow sheds and stylish teepees, you wouldn’t say no to a venue like this either. Top to bottom, this venue was stunning with extras ranging from freshly picked flowers to garden-grown vegetables used in dinner. With the help of the venue’s staff and floral designer House of Flowers, this couple turned their wedding venue into a floral wonderland.
The bridesmaids wore ochre dresses in different styles that they chose themselves, paired with chunky heeled gold sandals. They wore bright red lipstick to contrast the ochre and compliment the color pop bouquets. The groom and groomsmen wore navy blue suits with floral skinny ties and brown shoes. The bride designed her wedding dress herself and had it handmade in Shanghai—the inspiration for the embroidered flowers came from Beba’s of Madrid. She chose to keep the shape and style of the dress minimalist so the focus would be on the color and detail of the floral elements. The veil was covered in white polka dots and sat amidst a beautiful bright floral crown.
The wedding was a DIY extravaganza! The bride personally designed the save the dates and wedding invitations. All of the signage was handmade using sheets of Perspex from the local builder’s supplies store. Her daughter and she hand-painted the typography and brightly colored backgrounds to match the color scheme. Her mother and aunties created guest name cards for the table using fresh lavender from her mother’s garden, twine, and luggage tags.
