This afternoon Paul and I are heading to Scotland, we are shooting a wedding there tomorrow and are staying for a week with our family. Even though we will be working all week I am really looking forward to visiting Scotland as it is such a beautiful place.

Today we are back on the blog with our regular Boho Bride feature.  Today it is the turn for Jo and Paddy.  How time flies.  They are now into their 6 week count down to the big day!  Last time they were on the blog they shared with us their experience of choosing a photographer.  This week they are back talking about The Dress.

After visiting a few shops for my sister whilst she was hunting and not finding the one out of sooooo many beautiful dresses I thought it really can’t be that hard. She’s just being too picky! My sister knows exactly what she wants and started piecing together a bit from around 10 different dresses. I thought it was just her and I was planning a much simpler task. (more…)

Julia and Craig’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream Themed Wedding By Andy Hudson Photography


Happy Friday everyone and how are you all? I am looking forward to a nice quiet weekend. It’s all been a bit manic over the last few weeks so this weekend Nik, Dexter and I plan to do something just the 3 of us, have Sunday as a family and get a few jobs done. What about you?
I am finishing off the week with this lovely wedding from Andy Hudson Photography. It’s a relaxed, rustic day with a Midsummer Night’s Dream theme, lots of wildflowers, great food and a real family feel.

‘It was a perfect day. We celebrated finding each other with all our family and friends’

Julia and Craig were married on 30th May 2015 at Cuddystone Hall, College Valley, near Wooler, Northumberland. The reception was held in a marquee next door. ‘Our third son Alex, twelve at the time, found it while browsing online. The online pictures were great, and when we went out to have a look around the scenery was stunning, and we could easily picture ourselves getting married there. We invited approximately 110 guests in total. It took about 6 months to plan the wedding.’

I will pass the blog to Joni Lynn who will share the inspiration behind this shoot

Some couples love the simplicity of an organic setting as much as they adore each other. For those couples, a natural lush setting serves as the perfect marital sanctuary to begin their newly invested lives with each other. The whimsical quality of nature was not lost in this shoot as we wanted to embody the power of comfort by using personal mix and match ceremony seating, table settings and other rare decor. Brining treasured belongings from the brides Native american background . The goal of this shoot was to create a feeling of home for this wild and free couple to feel at peace within each other and nature. We mixed unexpected elements together such as dreamcatchers, feathers and vintage keys that matched the bride and grooms personal style and tattoos. By layering luscious vintage rugs, lace and family adornments in a variety of ways we were able to capture a cozy bohemian vibe. The beautiful florals constructed by Ella and Louie were a combination of berries and other exotic flowers that were naturally placed in every nook and cranny… even in a vintage tea pot! (more…)

Emily and Beau’s Romantic Vintage Evening Wedding By Pepper Nix Photography


Today I am taking you to Utah for the beautiful wedding of Emily and Beau. They chose a summer evening Wedding to take full advantage of their venues beautiful light and so Emily could carry out her wish of having lots of lit candles come evening time. This she did and their greenhouse reception venue looked absolutely stunning. They chose bright purples, red and pink for their flowers which popped perfectly against the white linen in the greenhouse. Emily looked stunning in a vintage inspired dress, which reflected her love of vintage clothing perfectly. All together a beautiful day, perfectly captured by Pepper Nix Photography.

It exceeded all our expectations. Everything was unbelievably beautiful.

Emily and Beau were married in October in Utah.  ‘We are going to be celebrating our marriage at La Caille in Sandy, UT. It is a beautiful restaurant and vineyard nestled between mountains southeast of Salt Lake City. We looked at a variety of venues and a lot had their charms but most of them just didn’t seem like “us.” As much as we love the mountains, we are not exactly outdoorsy people and we don’t ski so ranches and ski lodges just didn’t seem quite right. We visited La Caille at night so it was hard to get a very good impression of how it would look in the summer, but as soon as we walked into the Grand Pavilion we knew it was the place. We both were captivated. It was quaint yet sophisticated and surrounded by so much natural beauty’

Flower School: Beautiful British Blooms and the Importance of Keeping it Local


 

British Flowers

This afternoon we are talking flowers with our resident flower expert, Tracey Campbell from Campbells Flowers. When I met Tracey a few years ago the first thing that became clear is that she loved her job, secondly the importance of using British flowers within her gorgeous arrangements. Tracey has stuck by this ethos over the past few years and today she is here to tell us why. Using British only flowers is ethically the best thing to do, no using flowers out of season, no flying flowers around the world, keep it fresh, keep it local and keep it in season!

British Flowers

I’ll pass you over to Tracey……….

Hello again all you lovely Boho fans, it’s so lovely to be back and our heartfelt thanks to Kelly for giving us the opportunity to talk flowers. As you can imagine, it’s pretty exciting here at Campbell’s HQ at the moment as we’re in the midst of our busiest wedding season yet, but are totally loving working with more wonderful couples than ever, designing abundant, ‘just-picked’ prettiness, using as many locally grown blooms as we possibly can.  Which brings me neatly onto today’s post and an absolute passion of mine, British grown flowers. When I set up Campbell’s back in 2012, working with British and locally grown blooms, along with working as ethically as possible, was something I felt incredibly strongly about. It’s just beyond thrilling to see how the industry has grown over such a short space of time and how so many more florists are offering their couples the option to buy British.

British Flowers British Flowers

But why? I hear you ask! Well, apart from the fact that you get gorgeous seasonal blooms which are at their very best in terms of size, scent and longevity; you’re also contributing to a lower carbon footprint and supporting a really worthy industry full of fantastically enthusiastic and truly caring small business owners. Why wouldn’t anyone want this ethos as part of their special day?
