It was actually pretty perfect, considering the bride’s fave color is green, and their style is super classic. The result was an elegant castle wedding in the bride’s hometown, designed with lots of traditional Scottish details (hence the tartan and kilts) in mind. ‘Suki’ is a fitted crepe dress with a draped cowl back and embroidered tulle train, purchased at The Mews Bridal Notting Hill.
They designed their pastel + tartan wedding palette around the castle’s opulent gold details. Laura tells it, Markree is such a stunning Irish castle not too far from my home town. My bouquet was pastel based to complement the pale green wedding tones, with mixes of pink, peach and white using roses (spray, David Austin, and avalanche) as well as scabiosa, lisianthus and astilbe, some soft ruscus greenery and lastly pops of blue with forget-me-nots.
