Fairytale wedding at Castle Leslie in Ireland
Today we're travelling to the ancient woodland and glittering lakes of County Monaghan for a dose of Irish fairytale wedding inspiration. The enchanting Castle Leslie played host to this romantic wedding editorial full of stylish, thoughtful details and an unexpected guest in the form of a handsome white horse named Bumble.
Over to destination wedding photographer and Fine Art Curation member Lauren Baker to tell us more about it: "The intricate details, from the elegant invitation suite to the lush florals, were carefully curated by AMV Weddings to embrace a romantic and elegant aesthetic, capturing the essence of this real-life couple’s fairytale love story.
"Bride Sara looked breathtaking in her ethereal Mara Marie Bridal ceremony dress from London, adorned with intricate lace and delicate details. Thomas, her dashing partner, was the epitome of sophistication in his tailored tux.
"The ceremony scene was a blend of tradition and Irish countryside charm, with moody floral adorning the aisle and castle arch. Bumble, draped in a classy wreath, was a delightful surprise for everyone involved.
"As the sun started to dip over Castle Leslie, the celebratory reception scene began. Sara’s reception dress, a creation by the talented Alon Livne from Tel Aviv, brought a contemporary flair to the scene, reflecting Sara and Thomas’s modern yet timeless style.
"The reception scene was a feast for the senses, with details that spoke to the location’s season and the couple’s unique story. I particularly loved the raspberry and blackberry design elements that were included in both the tablescape and cake, provided by Fine Art Curation member, Erzulie Cakes."
