Wedding Hats

Last weekend I went to my best friend Anna’s wedding at The G Hotel in Galway. The bride was breath taking in her floor length Italian silk ivory dress with simple cathedral length veil and striking Alexis Bittar earrings. She was surrounded by a sea of stylish men, including her bow tie clad husband David and of course plenty of beautiful ladies, some of whom adorned their heads in Edel Ramberg designs hats.

I wore a Self Portrait dress which had a triangle detail trim so I embellished my large black parisisal hat with a ribbon trimmed in petersham triangles, I decided on a big hat to balance the skirt part of the dress which was really full and fun to wear. I wasn’t the only one in a large hat, Lisa, wore a striking fitted royal blue dress which I made an extra large royal blue disc to match. I added a navy trim and a mixture of navy and blue feathers in the middle of some soft ivory flowers to give her a more springtime look, the colour made her eyes pop and really stood out in the quirky surrounds of the G Hotel.

Our friend Sinead wore a vibrant dress in bright yellow with a navy box jacket and metallic silk lycra mini beret with a floating silver feather. The single feather was a great way to spot her in the church!

My gorgeous mum wore an elegant teal dress with a scooped collar jacket. She accessorised it with an Edel Ramberg Designs teal pillbox with wool applique and a mixture of teal and blue feathers while my friend Nicola wore a mini black velour wool smartie headpiece with a single curled quill which made a statement with her floor length orange, black and ivory dress.

The wedding was absolutely fantastic and I was thrilled to have so many hats at it, I will have more pictures next week including some of the stunning mother of the bride and beautiful little flower girls who all wore Edel Ramberg Designs on the day.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Hosty, thank you both for such a memorable day!

Xx

Colour pops at Cheltenham 2015

The sun came out today at Cheltenham for Ladies day and the yellow in the sky wasn’t the only colour on show.

The requirement of the day was  to tweet #colourmemarch, in a nod to the colours of Spring, and ladies were asked to post pictures of themselves in colourful outfits to social networking site twitter in order to garner up plenty of attention for the ladies day style.

A lady in one of my hats who got plenty of notice on twitter, instagram and facebook was Camilla Henderson, daughter of well known horse trainer Nicky Henderson. Camilla wore a magenta pink velvet deep beret with spiked mowhawk of orange red feathers with a beautiful pink coat, YSL handbag and orange Mulberry dress.

Camillas Edel Ramberg hat was a ideal piece to wear for springs unpredictable elements as the curved shape of the beret sat easily against the head and the sharp arrow feathers created an element of drama while the colours kept it young and fun! Camilla definitely stood out from the crowd with her strong colours and looked absolutely stunning at the race meeting.
