diary of a boho bride

Good Afternoon to you all! I hope you are well and have managed to enjoy some of the glorious wether we have been having this week. I have been very busy this week planning for the #bridalblogathon trip for next week. You will hear a little more about this in a post next week. I am so excited to share all the information with all our Boho readers. I hope you all have some great plans for the weekend and if you are attending a wedding, we would love to hear more about it.

Today we are back with Kerry our lovely Boho Bride to hear more about what she has been doing since her last post on her wedding planning highlights

I’ll hand you over to Kerry…

The final count down has begun, less than 4 months until our Wedding Day!
We’ve been busy putting our plans and ideas together and making them a reality and now we can start to see how t’s everything is coming together. I’m still slightly nervous about getting all our DIY bits and bobs completed, but Jon reassures me it’ll be ok.

Wedding Invitations

Invitations, Kids and Groomsmen

Our invitations have all been sent and our guests seem thrilled with them!
We sent them a little later than expected, as I just could not find the design or style that I was looking for. I was looking for something different that I hadn’t seen before, they had to be rustic with a touch of personality and individuality about them. For months I’d be searching the internet for inspiration and ideas.
I stumbled across Doodles Design who have a beautiful range of typography wedding invitations. What was even more appealing was their bespoke service. So I contacted them with my ideas and was so excited when they were made reality. I’m absolutely thrilled with them and now our guests have all received theirs, I can share the pictures with you.

Ruth and Ian’s Magical Forest Festival Wedding By Andy Li Photography


Well hello Friday and how is everyone today? Are you excited for the weekend? I certainly am! My mum is coming up this weekend, all the way from Cornwall to see Dexter. It’s been a few months since she saw him last so it will be lovely for her to catch up with us all and spend some time with us as a family. I hope you have a fab weekend what ever you have planned. Before we sign off for the weekend I have this rather wonderful forest festival wedding, courtesy of Andy Li Photography. It’s an amazing wedding which makes wonderful use of the forest surroundings by holding a hand fasting ceremony in the clearing. This is followed by a tipi reception and what an amazing day it is. Filled with Moss, burlap, and so many amazing DIY projects, most of them carried out by the groom! It really is a wedding where the couple made the day their own and went against tradition. Happy Friday everyone, enjoy!

‘A day of beauty, magic and memories’

Ruth and Ian were married on 30th of August 2014 at Cannock Chase Forest, hand fasting and tipi reception. The official documents were signed at Cannock registry office. I originally came from Cannock and grew up playing in the woods, family picnics in the woods and when dating, we spent many sunny days on Cannock chase and decided that this would be the perfect backdrop to our love story. 120 family and friends attended in total. It took just under a year to plan with the help of Bob and his amazing team at woodland weddings.

Bridal Style: LimorRosen ‘Urban Dreams’ Wedding Dress Collection


 
Boho-postheader

It’s another gorgeous sunny day here at Boho HQ, the birds are signing and the windows are open enjoying this gorgeous spring weather we are having, I do hope it is the same where you are? I have another beautiful dress collection to share with you today from LimorRosen. It has been titled ‘Urban Dreams’ and I have to say I absolutely love it. I have to admit I’m not a massive fan of big poofy wedding dresses, so this collection of stylish column dresses mixing in beautiful sequins with layers of chiffon is right up my street. They are chic, elegant and etherial all at the same time, a must for any Boho bride. The first sequined number has to be my favourite, absolutely exquisite!

‘Meticulous patterns, soft and flowing, carefully selected fabrics, and uncompromising sewing. I believe in minimalist and graceful design, comfortable and free of passing trends, and in particular in creative work that pays attention to every small detail of the garment.’

Keely and Nick’s Handcrafted Outdoor Wedding. By Studio Jada Photography


Today we are hoping over to Minnesota in the US for this gorgeous handcrafted outdoor wedding by Studio Jada Photography. It’s the wedding of Keely and Nick and it took place at Silverwood Park St. Anthony, Minnesota on 30th March. Such a gorgeous day, with warm sunshine highlighting the snow in the backdrop. This handcrafted wedding is detail full with some amazing winter themed decorations, as well as the most amazing fireside outdoor ceremony, and emotional first look and of course the most gorgeous of couples in Keely and Nick.

 Janelle and Dave tell us more about the proposal and the wedding itself……

Keely and Nick and  met while rock climbing at vertical endeavors and pretty much after that you’d rarely see Nick without Keely. Nick knew he wanted to ask Keely to marry him in a special way. So during the fall he asked Keely if she wanted to look at the fall leaves. They were deciding on a destination and she casually mentioned they could go anywhere, even to Duluth. So she pulled out a map and proceeded to look up how to get to Duluth… She did see Nick’s phone, but for some reason he said she couldn’t use it (he secretly video taped the whole proposal). Now, Nick is a pilot… and he had other plans… what do you think a pilot would do if he were planning to secretly surprise his soon-to-be fiance with the engagement of a lifetime? You got it! He just happened to pass by an airport, when he surprised her with a flight up there instead (which he flew). After a slight hesitation from Keely he convinced her it would be worth the trip.
Once they got there they went to a beach and were throwing sticks in the water when Keely found a message in a bottle… after she read the message Nick got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Flower School: Flower Hair Accessories with Campbell’s Flowers


 
campbells Flowers

This afternoon we are back talking about flowers with our resident flower expert, Tracey from Campbells Flowers. Flowers are such an important part of the wedding they really can add so much beauty to any wedding venue. However these days it isn’t just the church, venue or tables that can be adorned with flowers, these days wearing flowers in your hair has grown increasingly popular. For that reason Tracey is going to be giving you her expert advice on different ways to make the most of this trend and create a look that works perfectly for your style.

I’ll pass you over to Tracey……….

My heartfelt thanks to Kelly for giving us the opportunity to talk flowers with all you lovely Boho brides out there. Here at Campbell’s HQ we’re loving getting stuck into a busy wedding season, working with so many wonderful couples and crafting beautiful ‘just picked’ floral pretties to adorn our brides tresses on the big day.

Whether it’s a simple selection of blooms woven into a relaxed up do or a ring of roses perched on a veil, the trend for rocking wedding flowers in your hair is undeniably on the up.

Hair Flowers Hair Flowers Hair Flowers

As a wedding florist we are increasingly creating hair designs for our brides. There are so many ways to do this, which can all be really personalised to you and your wedding choices. For us, the trend seems to go hand in hand with the move towards more informal, outdoor ceremonies and the whimsical, romantic look that has seen wedding flowers become much softer and less structured.

Nostalgia plays a big part too. Quite often a Granddad’s allotment or a Nan’s cottage garden are starting points for a lot of bride’s wedding looks when it comes to the flowers. Woodland style floral crowns bursting with meadow type flowers and dried additions like wheat and barely work wonderfully with this look. (more…)
