“I want to do with you what spring does with cherry trees”.
In March I was given an amazing opportunity to create the wedding stationery for a photography workshop which took place in the beautiful De Burgh Manor in County Kildare. Having seen previous work of Grace Campbell, the stylist and event planner from Grace and Saviour and photographer Paula O’Hara, I was so excited to be part of this wonderful project. The 3-day event included workshops by some of the most renowned photographers in Ireland and the UK including Tomasz Kornas, Tom Robak, Wojtek Chrapek, Rob Dight and Paula O’Hara.
The brief I received from Grace was perfect for a spring-inspired shoot. Shades of clay, transparency, lightness and spring blossom. I managed to get some stunning handmade paper from Torn Edge Paper that helped me to complete the brief. As I wanted the paper to speak for itself I went for a simple and flowing calligraphy style. A white ink drawing of magnolia branch on velum paper, blush silk ribbons and white wax seals completed the whole look and emphasized the theme. As the very last piece of the suite I wrote a quote by Pablo Neruda which tied the whole set together.
Please take a look at these stunning photographs by Paula. There were so many that it was really difficult to choose which ones to include here. The whole team who put this shoot together did an amazing job and I can’t wait to work with them all again!
