Earlier this summer Lamber together with a selection of amazing wedding service providers set out on a photo shoot in one of Ireland's most stunning and romantic gardens; KILFANE GLEN & WATERFALL in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.

Let opulent flowers tell the story of Love… is the opening line of the seven page spread given to Lamber’s work in this current edition of The

The pictures by Tanya from Eden Photography seem to be overflowing with the most beautiful flowers; from exotic large pink Protea blooms with a almost sensual soft velvet like feel to the lightest of green trailing Amarathus flowers moving with every breath of air or movement of the stunning models holding the bouquets.

The bouquets were filled with so many amazing blooms, it clearly took a master such as Lamber to weave these into such a stunning symphony of summer. Roses, Peony roses, clematis, Astrantia, Lisyanthus, Eucalypthus, Dendrobium Orchids, Astilbe and so many more.

Embrace armfuls of flowers, carefully woven crowns and vases of fragrant blooms while allowing nature’s magic fill your day with romance.

I loved the idea of this wedding shoot from the very beginning. Lord of the Rings, retro chic, whimsy, fairy-tale and vintage fantasy; all themes that really excite me that I don’t often get to work with. Many brides start with the idea of wanting something “different” but some will gravitate towards a more traditional wedding eventually – which is beautiful and magical in itself.

What I am seeing more of now are younger brides who really do want something different, they may have been to more than a dozen of their friends weddings and they want theirs to look and feel completely different, instagrammable magic.

I really admire these young couples who aren’t afraid to be different, it takes a lot of confidence to strike out and break all the traditions that are associated with weddings. It may help that they are paying for their own wedding and feel less beholden to what their parents might favour. Or maybe they feel that the traditional wedding look does not represent them, is not personal enough.

Their realm of influence is film, Game of Thrones and literature rather than their friends weddings – they are the outliers and ultimately the influencers of society.

Protea, the bold and structured flower from South Africa, is the flower these alternative young brides choose. It represents transformation, diversity and courage, named after the Greek God Proteus who could change form at will.

Tanya (from Eden photography) suggested this great theme and Yvonne Maher (makeupbyyvonne) was on hand to create the fantasy look for the brides hair and make up. Her Lord of the Rings headband and make up were perfectly sublime, nothing too theatrical but romantic and fantasy blended together to make the bride look confident and dreamy at the same time. Unstructured flowers and hair give a great feeling of freedom and hope and represent a lack of constraint, instead representing optimism. I chose a free flowing bouquet that is reminiscent of the forest, weaving eucalyptus and wild roses in amongst the Protea.

Kilfane Waterfall and Glen really were very influential in my choice of flowers for the bouquets and head pieces. Everything had to look natural, unstructered, mystical and had to take on board the cascading element of the waterfall. Interestingly, the end result was very rich, decorative and, even though inspired by a natural woodland setting, was certainly full of character and representative of the individual bride.
