Louise tells Donegal Woman she went for a simple look which was completed by a stunning fascinator and a piece from her latest Laveesha collection:

“I went very simple with and off shoulder Reiss dress, Coast bolero and River Island shoes. My bag was Nine West which has a V in it which mimicked the V of the arrow feathers in fascinator.

“The fascinator was a bespoke piece by Falcarragh Milliner Levy Corcoran. She made it exactly as I had envisioned it. The hat was made with rabbit felt. The flowers on it were handmade from silk velvet encrusted with Swarovski crystals. The leaves were handcut leather. Finally necklace was Laveesha (current season),” she said.

“It was a lovely day and great fun,” Louise said.
