We are in the West Midlands for todays wedding, and it’s a super chilled out, homemade wedding, set in the bride and grooms family’s back garden. Both Stephanie and Jonathan wanted a wedding that was un fussy and ‘un wedding’ and the results are this laid back day that they manged to plan in a short space of time with minimal fuss. They did this by carrying out a lot of the work themselves, as well as calling in lots of favours from friends and family. Big thanks to Joshua Wyborn for the images.
Stephanie and Jonathan were married on the 8th July in a family member’s garden in the West Midlands. ‘It is a really beautiful space, that holds a lot of memories for both of us – not only from Jon’s childhood, but also for the two of us as we first got together and beyond. We had 200 guests. When we got engaged in October we really didn’t want wedding planning to consume us. Our ideal wedding was something relaxed, rather than immaculate. So we started planning in January, and it spread out over 6 months. But that was more to ensure we had the suppliers we wanted, rather than because we were agonising over every little decision. We maintain the wedding we wanted could have been planned in two weekends, we just didn’t get on with it in a condensed chunk.’
Good afternoon everyone, how are we? Now this post might not be ideal if you’ve overdone it a little this weekend, or on the other hand it might be totally up your street if you’re already thinking about Friday, the Bank Holiday weekend or even your wedding wine tasting? Today we are joined on Boho by the lovely Ruta from My Uniq Wines to tell us all about her amazing wedding wine personalisation service! I know lots of people that would be thrilled with one of these as a gift, so without further rambling from me, over to Ruta to tell you more!
My Uniq Wines e-shop is a personalised wine destination for couples who would love to have their own branded wine for the wedding day and share a very unique story with their guests. Everyone can create personalised wine labels and order wine online in minutes using My Uniq Wines online design tool. The best thing is that couples now don’t need a professional designer to create it all. Our designers crafted beautiful trendy templates so you can simply personalise your favourite one and we will take care of the rest. Of course, if you have someone working on your stationery design already you can simply ask them to upload their suggested label design on the My Uniq Wines tool and we will send you the wine of your choice with that label. We can also help you plan your wines for weddings, help to calculate how much you need, and what kind of wine! Please contact us asking for advice and we will arrange suitable time to have a free consultation.
Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another fabulous week on the blog. We have lots of amazing weddings to share with you this week, starting off with this bright and cheerful rainbow wedding in Essex from Nicola Casey. Siobhan and Chris love all things bright, so they knew a rainbow wedding had to be for them. They set about planning a colour filled day and really went to town on the decoration and the flowers, as well as filling the venue with an abundance of rainbow ribbons. With lots of lovely DIY details, this is the perfect way to start off your Monday, have a good one everyone!
Siobhan and Chris were married on the 30th July 2016 in a ceremony at Our Lady of Compassion Catholic Church, Saffron Walden, Essex. The reception was held at Great Chesterford Community Centre in Great Chesterford Essex. ‘We were looking for a venue where we could put our own stamp on things and we had the freedom to hire the suppliers we wanted. Siobhan also grew up in Great Chesterford so we liked the idea of having our wedding there and where lots of our family and friends live close by so we chose the community centre. In the end the venue was such a flexible, adaptable space and Cresta who runs the events was so helpful it made our experience so much easier. We had 95 guests in the day with another 25 in the evening. We got engaged in February 2015 but were buying a flat so we didn’t start properly planning until September 2015.’
Happy Saturday and welcome to your weekend! I hope you are doing something nice and managing to dodge this showery weather!
Today I have the pleasure of bringing you our weekly edition of Boho Pins, and I have an excellent collection of escort cards for you to swoon over! Typically an American tradition, we are now seeing an increasing number of UK brides using them to show some creativity, tie in their theme and escape the dramas of seat-by-seat table planning! Genius. Instead of using a traditional table plan, the guest’s name is placed with the table number they are sitting at. As time has gone by and imaginations have got bigger and better, escort cards have been turned into anything from dainty detailing, to massive installations. They can be a real focal point at any wedding and a great way to tie in any theme you want to incorporate into your day. I can’t pick a favourite from our selection, they are all so fabulous, but I’d love to hear which is your top pin!
