Stay and Couple's Session at Bellinter House - Ireland

This weekend I had the pleasure to stay at Bellinter House, which is a very well know wedding venue near Meath, Ireland.

Usually, as a wedding photographer I get to go to amazing wedding venues but the day goes by so fast and I never get the chance to enjoy the venue with time, so for Easter me and my partner had the chance (gifted to us from our lovely friends) to stay there and I have to say: such a lovely staff, comfortable beds and overall great experience! 

Even though I was taking the time to relax I made sure to snap a few shots and take a few pics with my partner, I said here before how important it's to have nice pictures of you as a couple and how I making a effort to document our story too and I hope you enjoy it. 

DIY- Sunday : Sweetheart Vase

Sunday is usually my day off where I try to relax and spend some quality time with my other half, although realistically we do the groceries, do the wash and watch Netflix, pretty basic couple stuff! Haha 

As you probably can tell from my pictures, I just love flowers!  

My grandma and my mom ALWAYS had at least one small vase at home and even though I live in a tiny space I try my best to have a little vase at mine as well and it's usually re-used glasses from tomato sauces (hey, I'm not cheap I'm just a hipster/green team ;) ).

During the Valentines season I got in Penneys some Valentine's banding and some of the hearts I kept to re-use at some shoot, but after getting my hot glue gun in Tiger (OHMYGOD that place is DIY heaven!) , this Sunday I decided to go for it and I pimp this jar and transform in a sweetheart vase!! 

It's a cute way to make your house a little more romantic or even to create some fun and cute wedding decor!  

You will need: 

 

Hot glue gun (this is from Tiger as you can see from the box! )

Hot glue guns take patience and some heat resistant fingers! But my advice it's to take your time and add the glue in strategic places and hold the heart in place until it feels cold and secure enough. 

You can add other things like ribbons and all other kinds of cute things but I like how just the hearts look too. 

So here's the final result :)

Spring Fun Editorial - Flower Crown DIY

There's no one in the world that loves flower crowns more than me. Ok, that might be an exaggeration but after Pinterest came to my life I go even more obsessed. 

So I decided to make my own and the lovely Betsy decided to pose for me!

With the all DIY vibe I decide to go to some charity shops and collect some cute top (this one is from Zara, I think) and I even adventured at doing Betsy's make up (Thank you Youtube beauty gurus, you rock!).

Hope you all enjoy this and make give inspiration to do your own and if you do, please share it with me :)
