I first heard of Margaret O Connor when looking through the list of milliners who were included in Create in Bts .

However I was lucky enough to see some of her work first hand at the Rds on Thursday last .Both Liza Brennan of Phoenix V and Elaine from Style Goes Racing were wearing her pieces and though both very different, I liked both equally.From what I could see, both were made with great attention to detail and were fantastically finished .See my pics below.

However, whole having a browse through her fb this morning....these STUNNING pics caught my eye....Wow!!

Firstly..what a stunning bride and dress 👌

But...check out that exquisite headpiece....Its just divine...the detailing, the draping, the pearls.....I just love how when looking at it, there seems to be a new detail from every angle.

I've already sent this to about ten mates who are getting married....if you know of any brides to be, do them a favour and tag them here too.
