Big Boho Love
A few weeks ago we introduced you to all our new Boho brides and over the coming weeks/months you are going to get to know about them and their wedding plans much more.
Today I am happy to bring Jo and Paddy to the blog. They are getting married at the Kingshall Barn at Elmley Nature Reserve this September. Jo and Paddy have chosen the subject of invites today and Jo has kindly shared with us a supe cute DIY post.
I’ll pass you over to Jo and Paddy………
Wow less than 5 months to go now and things are starting to feel real, we have decided to give a general update on the details so far and a peek into our invites and how I made them…….
So we have finally booked our notice of marriage, not sure if it’s just me but seems a little scary. Despite 11 ½ years I’m not sure Paddy will be able to answer the questions!!
Planning all in 12 months seems pretty doable, been quite relaxed and plodding through I suddenly realised I needed to get moving and book hair & make up, so with trials coming up I’ll let you know how I get on.
I wanted to go for something different with accessories so with the help of a close friend got in touch with Rachel and after our second meeting cannot wait for the piece to be finished. It’s a completely bespoke piece designed for me after our initial consultation. I’m leaving this one a surprise (Paddy has no clue)
With Paddy being a Tree Surgeon we are incorporating this into our day. After seeing lots of pictures we decided on our favourite log guest book, stump cake stand and wooden card barrel. Since then we have struggled to locate somewhere to buy these from. Paddy has enlisted a friend who is also a Tree Surgeon and making her own guest book and cake stand for her wedding in July and has agreed to make ours too! So excited to see the end result. It’s also taken time to hunt down and research into finding the barrel and at reasonable price too! We have now ordered it from Etsy, fingers crossed it’s as good as it looks!
(Photo source: cake stand / barrel letter box)
So the biggy, our invitations which took me forever to make!! These have now all been posted so we can sit back and wait for the RSVPs to come through.
Inspiration for the invitations came from a picture on Pinterest, I loved them. Not having a massive budget for stationary nor really knowing what to do, I made a trip to hobbycraft………Bank holiday project

Todays wedding is a lovely way to finish off the week. It took place on the 11th April this year and comes all the way from Maryland in the US and features one of my favourite colour schemes, grey and yellow. Grey and yellow make such a fab colour combo, it is fresh, modern and goes well with a rustic wedding like this or more of a modern, industrial feel that is so popular at the moment. With some beautiful finishing touches in the detail and the decorations this wedding is just gorgeous. Big thanks to Joy Michelle Photography for the lovely submission.
Joy from Joy Michelle photography tells us more about the day……..
Katy and Geoff are the nicest and most laid back people you will ever meet. They wanted their day to be about family and love. Their ceremony took place inside the leftover foundations/stone of the old barn that was once on the grounds, surrounded by 70 of their closest friends and family. Their reception was set up in long, family style dinner table set ups with champaign and beautiful handmade signs on each setting. I loved the colors and tones of the day. The bridal party wore j crew suits in a soft gray and the bridesmaids wore soft dove-gray as well. There were pops of yellow in the flowers, decor, and paper goods throughout the day.
Good Afternoon to you all. I am currently in the air somewhere between London and St.Lucia ready to start the Bridal Blogathon. It’s been a hectic few days but I managed to make the flight and I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all in the next coming months.
Today I am happy to bring you this amazing South Western styled shoot from Andie Freeman Photography. It’s full of amazing details and I know I am going to be pinning all of these to Pinterest once I get back to the UK.
‘A Southwestern flavour meets southern charm. We added feathers and an aztec cake to a classic southern barn venue’
I’ll pass you over to Andie to tell us more about the shoot……….
The shoot took place in January this year at the Barn on Belmont – Athens, Ga. It was the dress that is featured in this shoot that was the main inspiration, the dress store, High Maintenance Formalwear, had this fab Sherri Hill gown with a turquoise belt. I thought it would be perfect for a southwestern styled shoot and throw some cowboy boots on the bride.
We really just wanted to showcase how you could marry different themes together seamlessy. As well as show that there are other things you can do with a barn venue versus the classic rustic theme. (more…)
