Irish Designers Racing Shoot at Cloughan Castle!!I was delighted to be part of this unique photoshoot on my own doorstep!!
Cloughan Castle was the perfect setting on a beautiful sunny day for our Race Style Shoot featuring Suzie Mahony Designs designer millinery with fashion from the spring summer 17 collection at Aideen Bodkin Fashion.
Cloughan Castle is the venue you need to create an event that will be long remembered whether you're celebrating a private party, a romantic wedding or a business gathering.
Photographer: Joe Crean Photography Styled by Suzie Mahony and Deirdre Kelly.
I used this opportunity to highlight the varying designs I create through my Millinery and showing some of the shapes and looks that can be achieved for your racing looks. Especially if you are supporting Irish Designers.
Statement Black Hat trimmed with nude pink loops on both sides.
Lace detail dress from Aideen Bodkin teamed with pearls to finish the look.
We couldn't resist this beautiful shot, the main entrance to the Castle, surrounded by woodland with panoramic views of the Slieve Aughty Mountains.
I used this very large extra wide brimmed hat in cerise with silk trim to highlight the detail in this lovely dress and the overall profile is very striking.
Orange and Cerise. Striking two tone hat with floral and quill trim. This hat can be worn a few different ways. This is how I added more height to the look by having the hat to the side.
Classic bespoke black hat teamed with one of my favourite Aideen Bodkin Dresses, Black background with floral detail in blues and pinks. This dress would also work great with a block colour pink hat in the perfect tone of the flower.
Perfect racing attire.
Yellow is huge this season and here we mixed it with soft greys and blue tones.
Vintage Styling with this beautiful leopard print bicycle. Perfect for the sunshine with just the right twist of colour in her hat and not forgetting the daffodils!!.
Its official big hats are back for the Racing Season this year. I have used the hats here to bring out the colour and the detail of the dresses from the collection. We kept jewellery simple and elegant with neutral tones for shoes also so the full emphasis was on the outfits and hats.
No day out is complete without the Suzie Selfie!!
Thank you for checking out my blog. Looking forward to future shoots at this beautiful venue.
