Mother of the bride
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!
Mother of the Bride Hat
My beautiful cousin Ailbhe got married in December and I had the honour of making her mum, Marians, hat for the wedding. Marian had an amazing pink wool dress made and a little cape style detachable collar, her gloves and bag, from my favourite designer Paula Rowan, allowed us to introduce some nice autumnal tones with feather detail.
The hat was an elegant side sitting disc with the same pink wool underlay as dress and a rich velvet mix outer layer. The feathers were a stunning collection of Argus Pheasant along with others mixed in for depth.
We were both really happy with the finished headpiece and I thought she looked absolutely stunning on their special day.
