Sarah and Joe’s French Wedding with a Green Wedding Dress, by Gavin Forster Photography


Happy Monday everyone and welcome along to another fun packed week on the blog.  I hope you all had a good weekend? To start the week in style I have this beautiful destination French wedding for you, courtesy of the lovely Gavin from Gavin Forster Photography.  I do love a destination wedding and this French wedding really is lovely.  The rain came down but this didn’t stop Sarah and Joe from having an amazing day. Sarah’s parents own a beautiful house in France so the couple decided what better place to hold their wedding.  The went about creating lots of the different elements themselves and the results are wonderful.  A truly beautiful wedding with some very special moment s captured perfectly by these stunning images.

‘It was a beautiful, colourful, rainy spring day, surrounded by our families. We picked the traditional things we wanted to do and skipped the rest’

Sarah and Joe were married on 2nd May 2015 at their parents’ house, Beynac, Dordogne, France. ‘We considered a lot of options: Yorkshire near where we live; the U.S. where Joe’s parents and lots of my family live. In the end we decided to keep it very small and make it a ‘destination wedding’ for everyone. We felt a bit restricted by some of the packages offered at traditional venues and realised we were crazy not to make the most of the beautiful venue we already had available to us. My mom was thrilled because she was already dreaming of family weddings when they bought the house in France 5 years ago! We had a total of 40 guests. We got engaged in August 2013, so planned it gradually over a year and a half. It took us a while to figure out what kind of wedding we wanted to have.

Boho’s Best Bits: W/C 27th July


Boho's Best Bits

Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all this fine weekend? I hope you are all well and happy? We have had a bit of a poorly house hold this week. I was ill earlier in the week and Dexter has been poorly for the last few days. Poor little man has been in a right old way, I’m hoping today is the turning day where is antibiotics kick in properly and he starts feeling better. Nik and I have lots of jobs to get done as we take it in turns to look after Dexter, as we are in the process of trying to move house. We have been to view a few properties but so far nothing has really grabbed us. There are a few little things we need to do to ours before we put it on the market, so we will be busying ourselves with those jobs over the next few weekends. Fun and stressful times ahead I feel, moving house is very exciting but I know can be filled with emotional highs and lows.

As for the blog, all is going well with the new design, we have been working on the new look directory this week and I have to tell you it is looking great. It will come with new features and a much easier to navigate system, so making it super easy to find your dream supplier. All will be revealed in the launch on 1st September.
For now though, take a few minutes out of your busy Sunday and enjoy this weeks best bits. My weekly round-up of the best the wedding world has to offer.

 

Best Wedding

This weeks wedding is just gorgeous, a mixture of glam and rustic which is what I am loving right now. The reception venue is amazing, so many wonderful decoration details, the flowers, the escort cards, cake table, even a sign for the dance floor.

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.’
