We are heading back to Devon today but this time for a beautiful intimate Devon...
Good morning everyone and welcome to your weekend! I hope you have some fun planned? I have just been told by my solicitors that our moving date is in less than 2 weeks so all hands on deck here to pack and tidy! And shop for new homewares… obviously! As a lovely distraction from too much hard work, today I have a delightful collection of outdoor wedding receptions for your Boho Pins! From cliffside to farm fields, outdoor receptions are so versatile, they really do go anywhere (where it’s hopefully not raining!) Enjoy!

Good afternoon everyone – are you ready for the weekend?! I know I am. I’m visiting family to celebrate my Grandma’s Birthday, and will be taking the opportunity to sit, eat and try not to think about work too much! To ease us in gently I have a very sweet wedding film to share with you from Mischa + James Wedding Films. Kirsty and Lewis had a festival style wedding complete with tipi tents and partying until the early hours! Grab a brew and take 5 mins to soak up this gorgeous film.
When Lewis and I got engaged last February, we didn’t immediately plan to get married just six months later but we were so excited that we just didn’t want to wait any longer. We had a few initial chats about various locations – the Caribbean (where we got engaged), Canada (where I was born) and even Spain (mainly because we saw this awesome place where you can rent a whole town). But once we thought about the things we love – our family and friends, good music, festivals, camping, street food and a good drink – we quickly settled on a festival-style wedding in the Kent countryside. By late Feb we had booked our venue. It was the second one we saw and it took a lot of imagination to see how it would look in August compared to a very cold and wet afternoon in February! Not having much time to plan was actually really helpful. We didn’t spend too long overthinking any decisions and mainly just went with our gut. We were lucky to find and work with lots of great suppliers who really helped create the perfect day… and my mum was incredible at sourcing various props and decorations on eBay! Everyone always tells you that your wedding will be the best day of your life; turns out they’re right. From getting ready with my mum and lovely bridesmaids to eating leftover cake with the last ones standing at 4am, the day was filled with all of our favourite things from start to finish. To be honest, we basically wanted a big party; a laid back, fun-filled day without any of the boring bits you can often get at the wedding. We didn’t want that midnight cutoff where nobody is quite ready to go home so it was amazing that so many of our guests camped with us. Waking up, hungover but happy, hearing everyone’s stories from the day before over a delicious fry up was one of our favourite parts. We’ve had so many lovely comments from our friends and family and we’re just so happy that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did.
Happy Friday everyone! I do hope you are ready for the weekend and have something fun planned. It is of course Mother’s day on Sunday, so happy Mother’s day in advance to all you lovely mummys out there. Being a mum has been the hardest, yet most rewarding job of my life so far. It has changed my life for the better but in so many more ways I could never imagine possible! So go give your mum a massive hug, if she is with you on Mother’s day, and make sure she feels appreciated! Going back to today’s wedding, the last wedding of the week, and it’s this super stylish Cotswolds wedding that took place in November last year. It is an elegant day filled with fairy lights, the most gorgeous Jenny Packham dress and a stunning barn location. Big thanks to Kevin Belson for these amazing images.
Geraldine and Melvin were married on the 19th November 2016 at Cripps Stone Barn in Aldsworth, the heart of the Cotswolds.‘Mel and I love the Cotswolds and it seemed like the perfect excuse to have the ultimate weekend there with our family and friends. Stone Barn was our 3rd venue viewing and we fell in love with it so much I cancelled the other 5 viewings we had that afternoon. We had 112 guests.’
We are heading off to Western Massachusetts for todays quite beautiful Jewish Farm Wedding. I don’t feature that many Jewish weddings on the blog, but when I do I really love how much fun they seem. The evening dancing and celebrations are so energetic and everyone gets involved. As well a being a whole heap of fun and full of boundless energy, Jaclyn and Ben’s wedding is quite beautiful as well. From the delightful outdoor ceremony to the lovely rustic chic decoration. Big thanks to Emily Tebbetts for the fab photos.
Jaclyn and Ben were married on the 3rd July 2016 at Worthington Inn at Four Corners Farm, Massachusetts. ‘We chose to have our wedding in Worthington, MA. The area is so beautiful and calm and we found an incredible Inn where the owner Deb Shaw welcomed us into her home. We knew right away that was where we needed to get married. I really wanted our wedding to be soft, classic, whimsical, elegant, and simple. Nothing is more beautiful than nature and I wanted the colors to compliment and match the natural scenery.’
When both the bride and groom work for film companies, drawing and modeling film sets, then you know their wedding is going to be detail heavy and full of amazing decorations! Today’s wedding is such a wedding! Emma and Tom have really gone to town with every aspect of the details and decoration, from the laser cut order of service to the stunning table numbers. The colour scheme of grey, fuchsia pink and dark teal, work perfectly against the marquee and the amazing Yorkshire backdrop which has been captured perfectly by Andy Gaines. A really stunning wedding with some amazing photography, that I know you are going to love.
Emma and Tom were married on the 20th August 2016 in a ceremony at St Michaels the Archangel, Kirkby Malham, Skipton, followed by a reception at Eden at Broughton Hall, Skipton. ‘Emma is originally from Skipton and we currently live in London so we thought it would be nice to have the wedding back in Yorkshire. Emma’s parents recently moved into Kirkby Malham village and the church is 2 minute walk from their cottage so it was an obvious choice for the wedding ceremony. The reception venue Eden is based in the grounds of Broughton Hall and Emma grew up walking around in the fields of the hall. As we have many friends in London who had never been to Yorkshire, we thought it would be nice to give them a reason to visit such a stunning part of the country! We had 100 guests. The venue waiting list was nearly 2 years so we booked it and then only started really thinking about things about 1 year before!’
