Many Irish brides wore a wreath of wildflowers in their hair rather than an elaborate veil and carried bouquets of herbs and wildflowers to match. Irish brides often wore their hair in braids with ribbon and lace woven through the braids. Braided hair is an ancient Irish symbol of feminine power and luck.

Magic Hanky  This charming custom symbolizes fertility. Traditionally the bride incorporates it into her dress, carries it with the bouquet or carries it in her sleeve. Once the wedding is over, the bride uses the handkerchief to make a christening bonnet for her first-born child. For this shoot, they tied/wrapped the brides wildflower bouquet with an embroidered ‘magic’ hanky.
