Childhood sweethearts Lisa & Keith celebrated their wedding day in the enchanting surrounds of Darver castle in Co Louth in November 2016. The couples fun loving, laid back style shone through on the day and made this a dream wedding for me to style.
I combined wooden rounds with Ivy & moss as the foundation for the table centrepieces and then stacked beautiful birdcages, old books & mason jars to build a unique feature on each table. Old Hendricks bottles featured as an ode to the couples favourite drink, and let’s face it, made for super pretty pictures!
For the top table I combined bell jars & mini picture frames, old books and candelabras. Darver castle dressed the tables with gorgeous lace tablecloths and vintage cutlery, the perfect canvas for my centrepieces.
I created a personalised feature wall in the banquet room as a backdrop for photos, and also just because! I stacked wooden crates & logs, pillar candles,bell jars and more Hendricks bottles & teacups. A rustic directional sign and old singer sewing machine were the main feature along with a personalised ladder of photos of the couple and their favourite quotes.This was a lovely touch and a total surprise to the bride & groom on the day.
Little quotes, love notes and photographers of the couple were dotted around the venue accompanied by mason jars & milk bottles filled with flowers.
I chose the trunk tableplan for Lisa & Keith as it fit in perfectly with the charming medieval style decor of Darver castle. I put it sitting next to a full suit of armour! Nothing screams castle wedding like a knight in shining armour!!
Their drinks reception was held in the fab conservatory area where we cleverly featured a candy station, prosecco bar and tea & coffee station!
How cool is their cake?!!
Overall this wedding was a total dream to style, the castle was intimate and charming with lots of little areas to fill with props and the banquet room dressed with fairy lights was just magical! If you’ve always dreamed of a castle wedding but love the charm & warmth of an intimate reception I would highly recommend Darver Castle, it’s really something else
