Summer is just about over, but we are still finding ourselves clinging on to every last piece of sunshine we can find (outside or online). Especially since outdoor weddings were just made official in this summer, we expect that a lot more weddings will be heading outside in 2015. So, we figured that we should probably prepare ourselves with some inspiration now (and to warm us for the chilly months ahead of course!). The fantastic Caitriona from True Romance Weddings has provided us with this very inspiration with these gorgeous images and tips for an outdoor wedding…

“There has been a big emphasis on the ‘rustic’ and ‘outdoorsy’ look in the past year, but with the typical Irish grey and wet weather hanging over us all summer I wanted to inspire people with real bursts of colour and romantic florals. I scouted a few locations around County Galway and came across the hidden gem that is Woodville Walled Gardens in Kilchreest, which has also recently become a venue for wedding ceremonies. We picked the perfect date as the gardens were in full bloom and when the sun shone between thunder showers, we were able to capture the most vivid and spectacular colours.”

“I created a ‘garden party’ theme for this shoot, with a soft, romantic bridal look brought to life by Siobhan Murphy Hair, Makeup by Flora and Olina Bridal; and a romantic floral design for the gorgeous cake and cupcakes by Grace Daniels Cakes and stationery and decor by True Romance Weddings. It’s a lovely way to move on from the popular vintage trend and with the recent legislation allowing for outdoor weddings in Ireland, it’s the perfect inspiration.”

“I would predict a comeback of vivid, vibrant colours, and with a revival of disco music in the charts I think there will be a lot of sparkle too!”

Stunning! Thanks again to True Romance Weddings for the inspiration!
