Today I’d like to introduce you to one of our current sponsors 4 Love Polka Dots, who are designers and creators of beautiful handmade wedding stationery. Wedding stationery seems to be something that brides and grooms are making themselves these days, which is great if you have the time and if you have a bit of artistic flare. However for those time poor of us it is often a better idea to enlist the experts to create something beautiful that your guests will remember and treasure for years to come. 4 Love Poka Dots create beautiful rustic styled stationery that will really add that wow factor to you day.

Today it’s the turn of our very own Kelly with husband Paul to grace the pages of the blog. As you know when Kelly isn’t working here at Boho Weddings she works as a wedding photographer with her husband Paul at Paul Joseph Photography. It’s always a treat to feature their work on the blog as I truly believe they are one of the best photography duos in the business. Todays wedding is a beautiful barn wedding, full of hessian details and DIY projects. A gorgeous wedding that Paul and Kelly have photographed perfectly.
‘A whirlwind of a day. A really special time in our lives with friends and family’
Katie and Alan were married on 7th February 2015 at Crabbs Barn in Essex. ‘We loved the venue and the staff were really welcoming and accommodating. We had 85 guests in the day and around 130 in the evening. The wedding took about a year to plan.’
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you are all ding well? As I mentioned on Sunday the blog is undergoing a bit of a facelift behind the scenes, and with this I will be changing around the afternoon features. One thing I will be brining you more of is bridal style, so today starting as I mean to go on, I am delighted to be able to share with you the gorgeous 2016 Collection from Jesus Peiro. This collection is just stunning, it includes a variety of deigns, from full skits to full on sequins to the more floaty numbers, which means there will be something to suit every brides tastes. Embellishments, layers, cut our features as well as some pretty breathtaking ideas, this collection is elegant, flattering and high fashion.
Here’s a bit more about this 2016 collection………….
About the designer

Each season Merché creates a collection which is original, breath-taking and artistic, reflective of Merché’s own background in fine art.
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all today? I hope you all had a fab weekend. Mine was lovely, a good mix of time spent with my wonderful little family, aswell as with good friends, eating good food and having a lovely time. I have another jam packed week on the blog this week, starting off with this wonderful woodland wedding which has been sent into me by Ashley Hamilton Photography. It comes all the way from Oregon and is set in the most beautiful location. A weekend long wedding within a Tipi retreat, a wonderful back drop for the ceremony as well as the reception. With homemade outdoor games, great food, simple yet beautiful decoration and the cutest couple, this wedding is chilled relaxed and full of outdoor goodness. I just know you are going to love it!
‘It was the most memorable and special weekend of my life. Worth the wait.’
Karl and Nicole were married on August 3rd at Tipi Village Retreat, Marcola Oregon. ‘I was looking for a venue that didn’t feel like your typical “wedding factory”, rushing multiple weddings in and out per weekend. The fact that we could rent the entire retreat and have thirty of our closest friends and family stay for the weekend was a huge plus. Add on top of that the gorgeous surroundings and it was a done deal. We had 75 guests and it took a year and a half to plan the wedding’
Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all this lovely summers day? Have you been enjoying the heat wave this week? It’s been lovely being able to get out and about and enjoy some time in the sun with friends and family. My week has been a mixture of work, looking after Dexter and spending time with friends and family. Friday was a lovely afternoon in a pub garden, Yesterday was an afternoon spent at a BBQ with good food, lots to drink and great company and today is a mixture of work and time with my 2 boys. It’s been lovely chilling out and just taking time to appreciate life.
It’s been a busy week on the blog, I will be making some changes to the blogs schedule and features over the next few weeks to get it ready for the new launch in September, so you may notice some changes here and there, but all good and all very exciting!
Now though it’s time to catch up with my Best Bits. My weekly round-up of the best the wedding world has to offer.

Well what a great week we have had on the blog. We have shared some lovely weddings and some great wedding inspiration. The wedding goodness continues as today I am heading into Leeds to shoot a wedding which I am very much looking forward to. I love a good city wedding, I am just hoping the crazy Yorkshire weather stays OK and not like the past few evenings where we have had hailstones like the size of golf balls here in West Yorkshire. I hope you are all great and have some super plans for the weekend!
Here is a selection of our top 10 pins of the week……………..
