pretty pretty china from Pearl & Godiva at Dominique's wedding at Ballintubbert House
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to see another part of the wedding day: the preparation that goes behind making an event look really special. I helped to set up china from Pearl's antique collection for her company Pearl & Godiva at historic Ballintubbert House in Co Laois. This was the home of poet Cecil Day Lewis (father of Daniel Day), and it contains beautiful gardens and a sculpture park which is open to the public. They also hold events in the big top tent on the property, and this is where Dominique's wedding and day-after bbq were held.
I think the Royal Albert china teacup at the top with the little bow is my favourite. How sweet!
Doesn't the tent look lovely? Mad Flowers of Dublin did the gorgeous wildflower arrangements. Pearl's china really made the event look extra special and whimsical. I'm sure Dominque was very happy with it and I wonder which setting she chose to sit at? Doesn't she look stunning the day after her wedding and after only having a couple hours of sleep? Congratulations and wishing you and your hubby many years of happiness!
Pearl's china can also be seen in the photos I took at The Alternative Wedding Event at the Guinness Storehouse Dublin, and in the Etsy Ireland shoot at Burtown House which Pearl styled.
