From those in know apparently strapless is out and open back is in. We love this look sexy and elegant yet comfortable to wear. Well lets face it we all know how difficult it is to keep a strapless dress in place.A good style suited to most figures.

Style Shoot may 2014

We recently had the honour of taking part in a fabulous wedding photo shoot at the lovely Tankarstown House in Slane Co Meath. The style shoot was organised by Michelle Johnstone of Waterlily Weddings.

Michelle is a wedding planner who specializes in destination weddings from America to Ireland.  She collected a wonderful group of professionals around her for this shoot. The photographers for the day were Steph and Dado at from the USA. Everything else for the shoot was supplied by Irish companies.



We contributed vintage props from our beautiful china to our amazing High Nelly bikes and everything in between. Lucky the weather was fantastic someone’s nanny must have had the child of Prague out the night before. Everything came together fab on the day for the shoot and we cannot wait to see the completed work.

Hopefully it will encourage lots of American brides to select Ireland for their destination wedding. No where throws a party quite like the Irish and a wedding is one hell of a do.

Vintage China Teacup Flower Centrepieces


Vintage china tea cups make beautiful centre pieces for your wedding tables. You can have them as simple or as elaborate as you like. They can be colour themed to match your wedding colours and your bridesmaids, or you can simply have flowers matching the teacup itself.

They cost very little to make and can really add to a vintage or rustic theme. You can put them together yourself easily just a few bunches of flowers from your local florist or supermarket, a nice bottle of wine, a few good friends, and enjoy.

Check out this YouTube clip to show you how to make them.
