Boho’s Best Bits: W/C 23rd February

Boho's Best Bits

Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all? Is it me or does it feel every so slightly like spring? It seems to have got a bit warmer over the last few days, I even went out for a walk on Friday with a cardi on and no coat! The air seems to be lighter, the nights are slowly getting brighter and I have seen lots of lovely daffodils on sale in the flower shops, which is alway a good sign that spring is on its way. I personally can’t wait! I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of winter, especially now I have a baby. Winter just makes things much more difficult in terms of doing stuff and getting around. I can not wait for warmer weather so we can do much more outside and enjoy lots more fresh air! Today is family day and Nik, Dexter and I are off to The Deep in Hull to go and check out the fish and all the cute penguins. I’m not to sure if Dexter is  a bit young for it but I’m pretty sure he will enjoy it. What about you? What are you up to?

What ever is on the menu for you today why not take a 5 minute break to enjoy this weeks jam packed Best Bits, my weekly round-up of the best the wedding world has to offer.


Best Wedding

I absolutely LOVE Ibiza, I got married there and since then I have planned numerous weddings on the island for other brides and grooms. One of my favourite wedding venus is Amante beach bar which is the location for this weeks Best Wedding. A gorgeous beach bar with the most stunning views and this wedding shot by the incredibly lovely and talented Gypsy Westwood is just stunning……and oh my what a dress! (Found via Love my Dress)

Diary of a Boho Bride – Emily & Jonny, Entry 7: Bridesmaids

diary of a boho bride

It’s Friday afternoon finally and I for sure have that Friday feeling. This week has been so very busy in my household. With Paul away in Mexico I have been left in charge of an unruly 5 year old for a full week. As much as I love being a mummy it is so much easier when Paul and I share the responsibility. I have some great plans for her this weekend that include visiting the cinema, watching the Corpse Bride again as she is wedding crazy like me, going out for a light lunch and to the play centre as well as visiting family. She certainly won’t have time to get bored without her daddy who is much more fun than me!

Without delay I will introduce you to our regular Friday feature Real Boho Brides. Today we have the lovely Emily back on the blog. Last time she spoke about Honeymoons and made us all very jealous here at Boho HQ. Today Emily is back and talking to us about the subject of bridesmaids.

  • Remember you only have 1 week left to apply if you want to become the next Boho Bride or groom. All info can be found HERE
Emily and Jonny

I’ll pass you over to Emily………

Hello. So last time I hopefully brought you a bit of sunshine by talking about honeymoons. This month, the bridesmaids’ dresses have arrived, so I decided to talk about the importance of bridesmaids and the search for dresses.
First of all, how amazing are Bridesmaids? The answer, is ‘pretty awesome actually’! It is great to have your closest girls with you for support and laughs before and on your big day. Who else is going to hold your dress while you wee! I love having them there to share things with and I am so grateful for all their enthusiasm for the wedding.



I am blessed to have my big sister and best friend as my bridesmaids as well as our two gorgeous nieces as flower girls – aged 2 and 5. I’m sure every Auntie says the same about their nieces, but they really are the cutest things ever!
I think my unofficial bridesmaids are the mums but obviously they have their own wedding party position to fulfil. They are just as busy organising and making things. (more…)



2 People 1 Life: Wedding 60 – Wedding in Croatia

Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a while but today we are back with Lisa and Alex from 2 people 1 life The couple took a few months rest away from all of their wedding planning, and seeing that today we are on wedding 60 I’m sure you can understand why. Imagine planning 60 weddings (and still counting) it’s hard enough for most couples to plan one wedding! Last time we saw them in Switzerland for wedding 57, they then went over to Italy for wedding 58 and 59 but unfortunately they are still waiting for the photos for these two celebrations, instead of waiting I thought we would head straight over to wedding number 60 and it’s an absolute beauty! Croatia is somewhere on my wish list to visit and after hearing Lisa talk so fondly of it it makes me want to go even more!  I think it’s fair to say that both Lisa and Alex loved it in this beautiful country and from the photos you can see why.

(In case you have missed the whole story, Lisa and Alex have spent the last two years travelling round the world getting married in every country they visit, you can read more about their adventures HERE.)

_01a _02 _03

I’ll pass yo over to Lisa to tell you more about the day………

Croatia is a stunning coastal country that has so much to offer. Perfectly blue water and skies like no other place in the world. It mesmerizes me and makes me feel like I belong where I can hear it. Constantly, gently, beautifully lapping the pristine pebbled shore. The small towns along the waters edge nestle close into the steep cliffs and offer winding narrow lanes that drag you to the sea. Stalls line the road that sails along the water offering freshly picked pomegranates, grapes and home grown honey. It is such a beautiful place, you just have to see it to believe it.

We took our morning coffee down to the shore, dangling our feet off the edge of a collapsed sunny concrete pier we dreamed of living somewhere so stunning, asking ourselves, would we ever get anything done? could we handle having our breath taken away every morning? (more…)



Warehouse Wedding Inspiration By Paul Joseph Photography

This afternoon I have a fantastic shoot for you with an amazing list of suppliers.  I am  just a teeny little bit biased because it was my husband at Paul Joseph Photography who took these images.  It’s a little different to the normal vision I suppose you would have for a wedding.  Paul has taken out all the pretty and added edge and grit.  The shoot is based on the story of the film Drive which features the lovely Ryan Gosling.  Paul managed to source some amazing suppliers who all did a fantastic job.  I hope you love these Warehouse Wedding Inspired images as much as I do.

Paul tells us a bit more about the shoot…………

Date and Location of Shoot
21st Oct 2013 at Superiormotorcars Garage near York

What made you decide to do the shoot
We have seen so many styled wedding shoots arranged around pretty flowers, a big grand venue or dress so we thought we would give something else a bash. We wanted to create something unusual. Something not the wedding norm and something that we could put our stamp on. We called in crack team of wedding supplier epicness and asked them all to create something ace. (more…)
