Happy Sunday everyone! Are we starting the gift shopping this weekend or staying in blissful...
Today I am delighted to welcome our resident flower expert Tracey from Campbell’s Flowers back to the blog to chat all about finding your wedding florist. IRead on for vital information on budget, styles and different services, and some absolutely stunning images of Tracey’s latest designs.
Hi everyone and huge thanks to Kelly, as always, for entrusting us with her wonderful blog for this post. It’s awesome to be back as one of her ‘experts’ (her words not ours!) – 2016 was, I can safely say, our busiest yet. We had the honour of designing a whole host of beautiful weddings, using the prettiest of seasonal blooms, decorated some incredible venues and formed some really special friendships with our fabulous couples. Our little team grew to four incredibly hard-working and passionate people and their efforts were rewarded by our brides voting us Best Wedding Florist 2017 by The Wedding Industry Awards!
2017 has so far brought us a total revamp and move in our studio space and lots of lots of enquiries about wedding flowers for this year’s weddings – which is why today’s blog links in so well with this time of the year.
So, without further ado, let’s press on with our hints, tips and advice on how to find your wedding florist and what to look for in general.
Today we are sticking around the UK with this super cute wedding from Easthampstead. Back in my planning days I happened to plan a wedding in this very venue, a gorgeous location next to some water, very pretty. A great location where you can also camp in the field opposite and the location gives you full freedom to use the suppliers you want and have the wedding you really want. You can see more of the wedding I planned HERE. Today though,it is the wedding of Fiona and Murray, who have created a beautiful rustic style wedding, that is fun, relaxed and full of pretty details. Big thanks to Olivia Marocco for the beautiful images.
Fiona and Murray were married on the 27th August 2016 at Park View Farm, Old Wokingham Road, Easthampstead. ‘We wanted a relaxed, informal tipi wedding and instantly fell in love with this beautiful venue. We had 130 guests and the wedding took 1 year to plan’.
I hope you are all having a good Monday afternoon everyone? We are very glad to welcome Sugar and Spice designs to Boho today to share their gorgeous wedding stationery, invitations and new designs with you all. With a fabulous range including bespoke options, there’s something to suit all styles and themes. I simply love the watercolour designs, glitter and the festival themes and I know you will too!
Hey! I’m Jacquie (or Jax) and I’m the founder and designer at Sugar & Spice Designs. I live with my wonderful husband, our little girl, two chocolate Labradors and two cats (yes, it’s a houseful of noise, toys and the occasional toddler tantrum but I love it!)
I haven’t always been a wedding stationery designer, in fact Sugar & Spice was only born in November 2016! My love for weddings started when I was asked to photograph a friend’s wedding after completing my Photography A Level and I loved every second of it! I then worked with many couples capturing their special days as a wedding photographer for over 10 years.
With a creative background I was asked to design wedding stationery for some friends and I well and truly got the wedding stationery and typography bug! I’ve since designed many wedding invitations, save the dates and other paper goods for some lovely couples and absolutely love creating bespoke designs to reflect each couples wedding day style.
So, here I am, a full time designer of wedding and event stationery and I just love doing what i do.
Happy Monday everyone! I do hope you had a good weekend? Mine was full of children’s birthday parties and playcenters. I imagine that would be some people’s idea of hell, but I actually had a lovely time. Dexter had so much fun with all his friends and I got to catch up with a lot of my mummy friends, so happy days all round!
We are starting the week by taking another trip around the world, this time to sunny Italy, with this stunning Italian summer wedding. Kathryn and Steven chose Italy as Kathryn’s mums side of the family is Italian, so it was the natural choice for a destination wedding. They chose a beautiful spot, that didn’t need much adding to it, just some flower petals, lighting and their wonderful guests. Davide Zanoni did the honours of capturing the day perfectly and he really did do an excellent job!
Kathryn and Steven were married on the 25th August 2016 at at the Town Hall in Comune di Cavriglia at 11am in front of just 10 people – it was a brief 20 minute ceremony then back to the villa. This was followed by a big ceremony in front of 85 guests at the Amphitheatre in the gardens of La Selva Giardino del Belvedere, Montegonzi in Italy. The ceremony was conducted by Jo Bertolino at Tuscan Pledges . I saw the La Selva on Pinterest and knew then it was my ideal location! I contacted Francesco straight away…I hadn’t been to see many venues in the UK and decided not to visit La Selva until the wedding. Another reason is my mum’s side of the family are Italian and we always visited Italy as a holiday destination growing up. For me it was like home from home and a good compromise between a large wedding and something more intimate. We had 85 guests and the wedding took a very relaxed 9 months to plan.’
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!
