Good Afternoon to you all. I hope you had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the last week of January. Today I am happy to bring you this lovely DIY post from Francesca Stone from Handmake Me. It’s a lovely tutorial showing you how to make a super cute ring dish and it looks really easy to follow. You don’t have to use these just for wedidngs, as I’m sure they would look lovely in any house!
It’s the added extras that make your wedding so special. It’s a day to put together the finishing touches that you will only do once in your lifetime.
Hello Monday and welcome to another exciting week on the blog. How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one? I have another fab week of wonderful weddings lined up for you, starting off with this modern London wedding from Amy B Photography. Obviously I love a boho wedding, full of flower crowns, hay bales and DIY details, but equally I love a modern wedding and that’s what we have today. Hannah and Matthew chose the Hawksmoor because they wanted a cool modern restaurant that serves great food and reflected them as a couple. With giant light up letters to add that extra wow factor this wedding just oozes style and sophistication.
Fun, special the most amazing day of our lives’
Hannah and Matthew were married on 1st November 2014 at St Lawrence Jewery and Hawksmoor, Guildhall. ‘We both live in London and wanted something that reflected us as a couple – a cool restaurant in the heart of the city ticked that box and the value for money at this particular venue was incredible. We had 120 guests in total and the wedding took 9 months to plan.’
Happy Sunday everyone and how have you all been? What have you got planned for this lovely Sunday? It’s been another busy week here at Boho HQ, the snow this week got in the way of a few of my plans but Dexter an I managed to soldier on and make the most of it all. I am currently researching ideas for the new blog design, I have lots of ideas of how I want the new blog to look and Kelly and I are busy planning for its future, so exciting times ahead! Friday evening we went out with our friends and their little boy for an early dinner and yesterday I worked while Nik looked after Dexter. Today is family day and we have a fun day planned. I have a few household jobs to do first and then we are off for an afternoon of baby sensory fun. Dexter loves lights at the moment, any kind, from the actual lights themselves to the light fittings to the lampshades, he goes mad for them so we thought it would be a good idea to take him to a specialist baby sensory room, so he can well and truly get involved with loads of different lights! We are then off for a bit of a walk and some food. What about you? What are you up to?
What ever your plans are make sure you take a few minutes out of your day to catch up with this weeks best bits. My weekly round-up of the best the wedding world has to offer.

Today we are happy to bring back our Boho bride Emily to the blog. We last heard from her before Christmas when she talked about the readings and the ceremony and today she is talking all about honeymoons! What a perfect subject. I love to talk to brides all about their honeymoons and it really interests me where they all choose. I love Emily and Jonny’s plans. It sounds like true heaven!
I’ll pass you over to Emily………
I’m one of those brides that gets giddy when I say ‘We’re getting married THIS year!’
It all of a sudden seems to be really close, but we still have to wait until September. Insert impatient face emoji here.
We had a busy Christmas break as predicted, but it was lovely. We caught up with friends and family, ordered Jonny’s wedding ring, tried on numerous suits (Jonny, not me), ordered the bridesmaid dresses, organised and booked our music and even found time to book flights for our honeymoon. Tick, tick and tick! All in all a very productive Christmas; Father Christmas would be very proud indeed.
So because people might be suffering the January Blues, I’ve decided this month to write a bit about our honeymoon planning. Some warm weather to look forward to. Goodbye coat and woolly hat and hello sunshine and bikini – bikini body still required but aiming to get there in time!
Bringing you the sunshine…
We love the beach so that was a high priority when looking at places. We also wanted to do something memorable and special with it being a once in a life time trip. Oh and most importantly it needed to be within budget (or close at least!). I thought we’d know instantly where we wanted to go but there was pressure – it’s more than just a holiday!
Our first decision was when to go. We decided to go a few days after the wedding to make the most of our wedding bubble. However this meant we ruled out most places across the globe due to weather. There is a link which shows show popular honeymoon destinations and the best time to go.
