Diary of a Boho Bride: Sarah & Del (Entry 9) – Changes Afoot and Honeymoons

diary of a boho bride

Finally Friday is here. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend. I have a busy few days coming up, as Paul was away last weekend we have promised Fearne we would have a weekend of ‘family time’. Saturday we shall be spending it as a family, Saturday evening we have friends over and their children. We are all going to make some really delicious pizzas, I love home made pizza. I am hoping the weather is going to stay clear so we can manage a walk in the countryside to blow off some cobwebs!

Today I am happy to invite Saran and Del back to the blog.  Previously  they chatted about stressing and all the fun stuff and today they are back with Changes Afoot and Honeymoons! (Good Luck with the move Sarah and Del!)

Sarah & Del Ibiza

I’ll pass you over to Sarah and Del…..

Hello all, happy Friday! Hope the wedding plans are coming along well. With less than three months to go we seem to be leaking money here there and everywhere! I’m happy to say that the spreadsheet we posted about a while back has come in very handy reminding of all of the payments that are now due. But it’s all very exciting. We had our engagement shoot a few weeks back, which was lots of fun, although slightly awkward to start with. We’re looking forward to getting the pictures back any day now & hopefully share them with you in our next post. I also have my hair and make up trial in the morning, and have an accessories appointment tomorrow afternoon – I’m SO excited to try my dress on again. It’s nearly a year since we bought it, and I’m so excited to see it again, fingers crossed my dress may actually be ready and I can try that on instead of the sample. And the invitations are ready for printing – it really is all coming together.

DIY: Creating and Enjoying

I’m also very happy to say I’ve been trying to keep up with the new have fun and be creative ethos I chatted about last time. We’ve had LOTS of wedding planning fun lately. Our food tasting was incredible – so excited for the wedding meal! And we’ve been getting up to lots of DIY and focusing on all of the details. I had one particularly fun Friday night in with my lovely friends Jacinta and Alex doing all things DIY. We did lots of decoupage, made a HUGE paper pom pom and lots of origami, drank champagne (thanks Jacinta!) and generally made one hell of a mess. Del has been doing decoupage too, and some ‘manly’ DIY like tin lanterns which involves lots of hammering of nails, and we’ve even got my Dad involved – he’s made some giant light up initials. So it’s all starting to come together, which is good because we’ve had some very big news very recently. We’re moving from Manchester to Scotland…next month! This is very new news, I got a new job this week and so we’re going to be heading back up to Glasgow – whoop! So just to add to the stress and excitement of the wedding, we also need to move countries! wah!

Tshana and Leswill were married on 15 February 2014 at Knorhoek Wine Estate – Stellenbosch in South Africa. ‘We were browsing wedding venues on the web and came across a magical image of the reception area of the restaurant. A white, tent-like structure covered a beautiful rock pool with trees wrapped in fairy lights, it was stunning! Further along, we visited the venue and fell in love with the unique, intimate; we instantly made up our minds and did not have to go venue hunting! We had 48 guests and it took about a year to plan.’

‘I started with handmade about two years ago during university studies. I started with felted earrings, later doing hand sewn lace earrings. After finishing university we moved to a little village in Austria. I don’t know the language and don’t have a driving license so I was quite “isolated” here. I had problems finding a job and had a few silk flowers and hair combs at home, so I made a few floral hair combs and added to my Facebook. They had big success and were sold to my friends instantly. So I started to make also headbands, wreaths and lot of other fashion accessories and sell on handmade portals. In a year and a half, it grew from a hobby to my full time job, now with my boyfriend also working with me.’

Sarah and Mark’s Boho Country Wedding With Gorgeous Outdoor Ceremony. By Shutter Go Click

What a lovely wedding I have for you today, set in the Yorkshire Countryside this gorgeous day has Boho charm and a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Sarah and Mark decided on a country-style wedding and set a budget to stick to, they did very well to stay on track and worked as a team to make this happen. As they are both keen cyclists they decided on a tandem bicycle theme, to go alongside the boho style of the day. With wildflowers, homemade cakes and lots of DIY projects this wedding is super cute and full of personality. A child friendly day that is pretty as well as fun. Thanks to Ryan from Shutter Go Click for the images.

‘Only second to the day my daughter was born our wedding day was the biggest emotional roller coaster ride, from being completely petrified to being on the biggest high ever. It was incredible.’

Sarah and Mark were married on 27th July 2014 the ceremony was held at the Priest House in Barden and the reception was at the Devonshire Fell in Burnsall. ‘I drove past the Priest House on a regular basis and when we started planning the wedding and I heard you could get married there we had a look around and just fell in love with the imposing building and surrounding area and knew it would be perfect for the outdoor ceremony that we were looking for. They also had a licence for weddings so we could do the legal part with a registrar on the same day indoors. We chose the Devonshire Fell for the reception as it had excellent reviews, stunning views and ticked the practical checklist we had, which was a big priority when it came to our daughter. Cara at the Devonshire Fell is a fantastic wedding organiser. We had 75 day guests and 90 evening. About 6 months it took to plan but it felt like most of it was done in the last week before the wedding. Our wedding vows were written just the day before the wedding. It was very stressful and I promised myself I wouldn’t leave it all until the last minute but it’s easier said then done when your fitting planning into your daughters nap times.’

2015 Spring and Summer Make Up Trends – From Julia Jeckell

boho loves

The new year is in full flow now we are in March, the Spring/Summer months will be upon us before we know it. We thought that today it would be a good time to share with you some 2015 Spring/Summer Make Up trends. I personally feel it is great to keep refreshing your make up by styles, the colours and what type of product you use, it keeps you looking fresh and on trend! Today I am pleased to bring Julia Jeckell to the blog to tell you more about the 2015 trends.

Make up trends for Boho inspired Weddings Spring & Summer 2015…How to create the perfect bridal make-up look to compliment pastel colours…

Spring and Summer Make Up Trends

I’ll pass the blog over to Julia……….

Spring will soon be upon us, with many boho inspired Weddings picking up on a popular trend: pastels. With the Brides dress in pale delicate lace and bridesmaids in light and airy pastels, how do you create a natural long-lasting glowing make-up look to suit all skin tones without looking pale and washed out?

Spring and Summer Make Up Trends

Creating the perfect base

Bridal make-up needs to have enough colour to compensate for the paleness of the dress. There’s a big difference between everyday clothes and a Wedding dress, so there should be a difference in the make-up too.
I like to sit the Bride in natural light and start by making sure the skin looks smooth and even. The first step is using a great moisturiser that matches the skin type. For example if a Bride has oily skin, go for a moisturiser such as ‘Active Moist’ by Dermalogica‘ which is oil free and acts as oil control primer. (more…)
