It’s that beautiful time of year when the lilac trees are beginning to bloom. Where they flower their lush scent floats on the May air, carrying with it dreamy thoughts of a summer about to begin. The blossoms make bright bouquets that will fill a room with their fragrance and bring a hint of luxury into your home.
Hi there, welcome To The Wildwood!
This site originally started as a wedding blog called Sparkle & Swish, but over time I lost my desire to blog solely about weddings and wanted to expand this space into a broader topic, something closer to my heart. So I’ve spent the last couple of weeks reshaping the design and giving the blog a new identity.
You’ll still find wedding inspiration here at times, but this blog will now be dedicated to showcasing a life inspired by nature. With posts on all kinds of topics from artists, craftspeople, writers and others who are influenced by nature, to design, products, events and homes with a love or element of the countryside at their core.
I’m excited to start this journey and hope you’ll enjoy the new topic. If you’d like to get in touch you’ll find social media information in the sidebar, or simply shoot an email to email@example.com
Hi everyone, I haven’t been blogging here much over the last few months, to be honest I’ve kind of lost my wedding blog mojo! I still adore weddings, and all the creative people involved in them, but just don’t think that I would like to continue blogging about them.
There are so many wedding blogs out there these days, and I’ve found it hard to find a way to make this blog unique compared to the others. I don’t want to churn out the same kind of inspiration that’s already available to brides in other amazing blogs!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about making some changes and turning this space into more of a lifestyle inspiration blog with a niche I’m particularly fond of. So over the next few weeks you’ll probably see some changes, possibly a name change as well as new posts dedicated to a new theme.
The wedding content will still remain on the blog, as many of you visiting are still finding inspiration in it, but very soon this will no longer be exclusively a wedding blog. I’m sorry to those of you who enjoyed reading Sparkle & Swish, but I hope that you’ll enjoy the changes and have fun with me on this new adventure!

Hello there, it’s a wet and windy day here in Ireland and everyone is feeling a bit bleak, but I have just the remedy for you: a beautiful wedding from Dallas, Texas, that is guaranteed to lift the gloom. Shot by the talented Sarah Kate Photo, Sarah & Kyle’s wedding features a stunning vintage car, a luxurious white and blush bouquet, and an incredible five tiered cake! It’s quite a treat for the eyes and full of inspiration. I adore the cutlery favours with the message ‘I do, me too!’, what a sweet gift for your guests. Enjoy, hope it makes your day a bit brighter!
