Hello, I'm Brenda the creator of
Poppy Lane. I am so excited that
you are here and interested
in our story.
It all began about four years ago, when myself and my partner Darragh started up a small business
called The Vintage Parlour, where we cater for weddings and some corporate events all over
Ireland. We serve freshly ground coffee, many different flavours
of yummy ice cream and delicious cocktails, all from our uniquely transformed horsebox. We feel so
lucky and honoured to be able to travel the beautiful country of Ireland, meeting amazing people
with fascinating love stories, chatting with guests, loved ones and friends, all the while being a part of
each and every one of our couples very special day. The Vintage Parlour is our true love and we are
so proud of it; Make sure to keep an eye out for our new addition to the Vintage Parlour, which will
be hitting the road soon, we hope you love it as much as we do!
We also can’t wait to introduce you to Rocky, our little Jack Russell. He is a little divil, but we wouldn’t be without him or change him for the world. Check out our Instagram stories, where you will see how much of a good boy he really is, helping myself and Darragh out 24/7 in his own special way.
Where did the idea for Poppy Lane come from?
Over the last few years, interacting with our wonderful couples and being involved in the wedding industry, I noticed the lack of services for personalised proposal and thank you gifts for bridal parties, across Ireland. As I started to explore and play with the idea, this new adventure grew into a gifting place for all or any occasion. I quickly learned that the great thing about giving gifts is, there doesn’t have to be an occasion to show someone in your life that you care about them, or that you are thinking of them. Even in the last few months, in such uncertain and unprecedented times, where we all stayed apart from our loved ones, a little gift can go a long way. I love finding, wrapping and giving gifts, that warm and fuzzy feeling I get throughout the whole process, the excitement of giving a gift that I have put so much love and thought in to, really makes my heart grow a little bigger. I want to be able to share this precious feeling with you all, so I proudly present to you, Poppy Lane. I truly hope that all our gift boxes and products will become treasured gifts to you and yours, for all the occasions and milestones throughout this wild quest, we call life. When you can’t find the words, Poppy Lane is here to show your favourite people, just how much you care. Darragh and I simply cannot thank you enough, for all the support you have shown us over the past few years, you will never know what it truly means to us. We hope our little businesses can bring you as much joy, hope and happiness as it has for us.
Lots of hugs (and licks),
Brenda, Darragh & Rocky xoxo
