So while you were all gallivanting around the country this weekend, enjoying the weather and generally getting up to no good, I was working my butt off in Carton House, along with photographer Ailbhe O’Donnell, make-up artist Emma Farrell, hairstylist Michelle O’Halloran, model Aisling Finnegan and my lovely assistant Róisín Finnegan.

I’m not going to give the whole game away just yet – suffice it to say it’s going to be a very glam shoot with a twist – but for now I’ll give you a gander at what I snapped on Instagram this afternoon before I got carried away with all the pinning, folding, fixing lark!

This is a selection of shoes we used in the shoot. I just love the wallpaper in the room we were using – the Duke’s Study – amazing!

Just one of the corsages supplied by Flowers Made Easy. Each of the girls went home with one – they were just so beautiful. I don’t remember having corsages like these when I was a young ‘un!

Just a selection of the amazing clothes I’m going to spend the week returning . . .

The gorgeous Aisling halfway through her transformation – this girl has the most incredible eyes.

And our first look, snapped quickly on my iPhone before we moved to more picturesque surroundings!

I’ll keep you posted as to when you can look out for it – it was such an enjoyable day, and will hopefully turn out as well as it seemed to go!
