Motasem ‘En Pointe’ Collection
Good Afternoon to all our Boho readers out there. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying your Monday so far. As you will know the blog is currently going through a re design, Kelly H is working hard behind the scenes on the design and fresh new content for you all. The blog will be featuring more Bridal style so today, we are happy to share with you this amazing collection from Motasem. The En Pointe Collection, dresses with the elegance and poise of ballet and dance.
Here’s a bit more about this collection………….
The new ‘En Pointe’ collection are dresses with the elegance and poise of ballet and dance. We have created dresses which can be effortlessly transformed during the big day, there are separates, different shapes, colours and options to choose from for each dress. She can be demure during the day and uber sexy for the evening. There’s a style to suit any bride! We also have a new Luxe collection of highly covetable pieces and intricate embellishments coming later this year too.
I love taking inspiration from the Edwardian, Art Deco, Belle Epoque and Art Nouveau eras, the glamour of old and new Hollywood in sumptuous yet simple, refined shapes.
The dresses have always been named after iconic, inspirational women, such as ballerinas and performers like Anna Pavlova, Geneviève Gosselin, Josephine Baker, Colette, Mistinguett and Loie Fuller. Each dress has a story behind it, which the brides love.
The new ‘En Pointe’ collection, was inspired by the world of ballet. I think a ballerina, just like a bride, encapsulates the same elegance, grace and beauty with movement and flow, she has on her big day, as if she’s floating weightlessly on air with the special man in her life. Very romantic
Happy Monday people and how are you all this fine Monday morning? Did you have a good weekend? Mine was lovely and I’m now ready for another busy week ahead. I’m starting off the week with this wonderful woodland wedding from Ireland. It’s a gorgeous day and the setting is totally magical, a wonderful woodland outdoor ceremony venue which allowed for some beautiful couple shots, all stunningly decorated like something out of a fairy story. Big thanks to Tomasz Kornas for the fabulous images.
‘Our wedding day was very relaxed & intimate, without too many formalities. Most importantly we had a lot of fun with close friends and family’
Pamela and Kenneth were married on 9th August 2014 at Station House Hotel, Kilmessan, Co. Meath. ‘We were lucky to get such a beautiful venue with award winning restaurant and stunning gardens at such short notice due to a cancellation. I wanted an intimate outdoor ceremony and the grounds were idyllic for that. I knew the Station House Hotel was “the one” from the first moment I saw it.’
Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all today? I hope you have had a good weekend so far. Mine has been lovely as I got to go to a wedding yesterday and it was a really good one. Nik’s brother Paul got married and Nik was the usher, the sun shone and everyone looked amazing. It was held in the heart of Sheffield so not far to travel to. It was lovely to have all the family together and have a good catch up and help Paul and Alison celebrate their big day.
In blog news; the design is nearly finished and it is looking awesome, you really are going to love it! It should all be finished in the next week or two and then Mark can get cracking on the build, exciting times indeed.
Now though why not put your feet up and enjoy this weeks best bits, my weekly round up of the best the wedding world has to offer.

Good Morning. I love Saturday’s, mostly because I get the day to shoot some amazing weddings. Today Paul is shooting a wedding alone in Norfolk which leaves me with Fearne and Daisy for the day to explore Norfolk, I am guessing it will include cake and treats at some point, it would be rude not to.
Today we are back with our regular feature of Boho Pins, our favourite pinterest picks. I hope you like our selection this week.
Here is a selection of our top 10 pins of the week……………..

This afternoon I have an extra little treat for you, as I have a brand new Boho Bride to introduce you to. As of September there will only be four of our lovely brides left to chat to you about their wedding plans. When Carmel’s email landed in my in box and she told me all about he fabulous wedding plans for next year, I couldn’t resist adding her with the other four Boho brides. Her ‘Wedfest ‘ plans sound brilliant, coupled with the fact she has picked one of the best photographers in the wedding world, Jon from S6 Photograph, I just knew I had to share her wedding story with you.
So today please welcome Carmel and Dan to the blog, It’s also Carmel’s birthday today so I’d like to wish her a very Happy Birthday!
Carmel and Dan
Wedding date: 18th June 2016
Location: The Mustard pot in Leeds
Colour scheme/theme: Pastel/Festival
How they met
I met Dan on a night out in Leeds, I had only moved to the city in February. After a slightly drunken chat at the bar we exchanged numbers and arranged our first date for Friday 13th May. The rest is history!
Dan’s proposal really caught me off guard which I thought was impossible! His mum and sisters invited me out for tea at my favourite cupcake shop in Leeds. They also do a supper club. It was Friday 13th February. Dan dropped me off and I sat and waited. Totally oblivious I noticed mine and Dan’s song came on. I sat smiling whilst drinking glass of fizz. Next thing I knew, Dan’s walked through the door, suited and booted and down on one knee!!!!!!! I cried…… A lot!
The Wedding – O’Barton Wedfest!
For our big day we picture a laid back atmosphere filled with our favourite things! Food, friends, live music and lots of laughter! We get married at 12.30 at St. John’s the Baptist church in Adel, Leeds. I have 4 bridesmaids, and 4 mini maids! (12-3 years old. Couldn’t leave any of the nieces out!) Our colour scheme is pastel blue and pink. We have 4 ushers. We go to The Mustard pot in Chapel Allerton for our reception. We envisage a festival feel garden party. It’s a gorgeous pub with a great outdoor space. Covered in bunting and fairy lights. More of my favourite things! We have 120 guests for our wedding breakfast. I am a keen baker and Dan proposed to me in my favourite bakery. Cupcakes will definitely feature somewhere! We want live music for most of the day and street food to accompany our evening party. We want the day to represent everything we enjoy as a couple so all our guests can enjoy it with us!

You all made it to Friday! How are you all? I have had a pretty busy week so far. Fearne finished school for the 6 weeks holidays on Tuesday so my mum, nephew and I headed to Blackpool on Wednesday and we heading home this morning. I had a quick suitcase swap at home and now I am on route to Norfolk! Paul has a wedding tomorrow in Norfolk so Fearne and I are going exploring. I hope you all have some great plans for the weekend and any of you heading to a wedding it looks like the weather is going to be on your side.
Today we are back with our weekly Boho Bride feature and I am pleased to bring back Ruth and Mike to the blog. Last time they chatted about it just being 8 weeks to the wedding and this week she is back with just a month to go and looks like she has been a busy lady!
I’ll pass you over to Ruth and Mike
So we’re counting down the days till we say ‘I do’. People say that your wedding day comes around in no time…and I’ll tell you something, they’re spot on!
Our youngest bridesmaid’s dress isn’t the same as the older bridesmaids; I spotted a beautiful girl’s dress on Etsy ages ago, last year in fact, and just knew it’d be perfect. Our younger bridesmaid is 10 years old and she’ll be wearing this oh so gorgeous tulle dress purchased from Oliva Kate Couture on Etsy.
I’ve been saving glass jars for a few years now so I had quite a fair amount but very little time to go through them all & clean them. I’ve also been gathering crystal decanters that I’ve purchased from charity shops and vintage stores. My lovely Mum came to the rescue and offered to help out with the cleaning of the glassware. She spent an afternoon going through every single glass jar and decanter, removing bits of glue from them and soaking them for a couple of hours in white vinegar and hot water to clean them…the results are fantastic! I just need to get some candles for them & we’re sorted.
