I don’t know about you but the weather is absolutely terrible here, winter really has...
Welcome to the weekend everybody! I hope you have something fun planned? I am currently on official Boho business checking out the St James Hotel in Nottingham for all you Midlands brides-to-be. I’ll be writing up my experience soon but if you can’t wait do hop on over to my instagram stories and see what I’ve been up to! I’m excited to check out the lovely restaurant and famed cocktail selection… It’s no secret that Kelly and I are massive foodies, and the trend of wedding buffets and dessert bars is taking off, so this week our Pinterest top-ten is on those alternative to the norm. No multi-coloured jelly-beans here!

Happy Friday everyone, and how are you all? Has the week treated you well? I can’t believe it is Friday already, I know January is meant to be the longest month of the year, but I have to say it really is flying by! Today we have a beautiful wedding from very sunny Tuscany, which was sent into me by the couple’s wedding planner’s The Tuscan Wedding. Oriana and Gillaume decided on Tuscany as they just loved the scenery and wanted to treat their guest to a really memorable wedding. They chose a gorgeous colour scheme of yellow and blue that really works well with the green backdrop of the Tuscan hills. Big thanks to Patrizia Galliano for the images.
Oriana and Gillaume were married on the 21st May 2016 in a beautiful little church, Chiesa di San Lorenzo in a Galluzzo, near Florence in Tuscany. ‘It really is a special church, so ornate inside and simply stunning. We wanted a church wedding and the churches in Italy are out of this world. The reception took place at Villa Corsini, a beautiful villa in Tuscany with a very rural and romantic feel to it. I wanted to get married on a warm sunny day, surrounded by the beautiful countryside as I am a country girl at heart. In the end I decided on Tuscany because I think it has some of the most fantastic scenery in the world, I love Italian food and culture and thought it would be a memorable experience for everyone involved to get married there. Because it was in Italy we did have to scale back the guest list a bit. In the end we had sixty guests which I thought was a nice manageable number and our closest family and friends were all there which made it feel more special. It took about a year and a half to plan. As soon as we chose Tuscany and found our wedding planner the year leading up to our wedding flew by!’
We feature a wide range of Bridal Style gowns, separates and outfits on the blog and this afternoon it’s time for a bit of glamour on Boho! Harking back to the days of disco, the new collection from Halfpenny London is just ready to party! With beautifully romantic detailing and embellishments these gowns will transition perfectly from aisle to dancefloor and we can’t wait to start featuring real brides rocking them!
Samantha and Adam were married on the 28th October 2016 in a rustic backyard ceremony at their home in Tennessee, USA. With a pared down look, the bride and groom’s smiles shine through as they said their vows surrounded by closest friends and family. Standing on a thick bed of fallen leaves, the wonderful rustic styling compliments their Autumn outdoor setting and the tones are captured beautifully by Swak Photography. The family shots are my favourite, Samantha’s son is as cute as a button as a ring bearer, and the maternity shoots, with Samantha’s baby bump are just precious!
Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful week so far?! Today we are taking you off to Kent for this fantastic festival themed wedding day. Bex and Mike met at a festival, so it seemed fitting that they brought in as many festival elements into their day as they could. From the marquee to the hay bales, the flowered bridesmaids dresses, to the wild flowers and DIY projects. This wedding is brimming with wonderful and fun details. Big thanks to Schryver Photo for the wonderful images.
Bex and Mike were married on the 2nd September 2016 at St Augustine’s Priory, Bilsington, Ashford inKent ‘As soon as we saw the venue, we knew it was right for us. Mike had been contemplating a church wedding for a while but I wasn’t keen so when we visited this venue, it instantly ticked all the right boxes for us both. Not to mention the team at Bilsington Priory made it an even easier decision to make- they were so friendly, welcoming and professional from the moment we arrived. Libby’s family own the Priory so not only is it a beautiful wedding venue but it is a beautiful family home with centuries of history. The day wouldn’t have been so special if they hadn’t been there in the involvement of it. The same goes for Rob & Jonathan, our caterers, who went above and beyond in ensuring all the guest dietary requirements were fulfilled and everyone’s plates and glasses were kept full from start to finish. We had 103 day guests and an additional 15 in the evening. We got engaged in March 2014 and set the wedding date in May 2015 for September 2016 so we started planning officially after we set the date – so it took approx 15 months, with the final 6 months being the most full on.’
