To round off the week I have a fabulous shoot to share with you this...
Good afternoon everyone, today we are returning to one of my favourite topics, the honeymoon! To be honest, I think I’d be just about happy anywhere on honeymoon so I’d be more than happy to let the Boy do all the organising…which means I’d likely be on a month-long mountain expedition! Thinking of slightly alternative destinations, Tom our resident Honeymoon Expert, has some exciting ideas on honeymoon destinations near water for you today! My choice? French Riviera…I might just bump into someone famous!
There are fewer things more calming, soothing or awe-inspiring than water. Lake, river or ocean views are the epitome of romance. Especially when you’re lucky enough to catch a beautiful sunrise or sunset across the horizon. If you’re looking for the perfect honeymoon destination, here are 5 alternative ideas for you to spend on water…
The Caribbean has long been a favourite amongst hopeless romantics. So when it comes to finding the perfect honeymoon package, you will be spoilt for choice. Cruise lines like Royal Caribbean typically travel the Leeward and Windward Isles and some of the best islands to stop off at include Antigua, Barbados, Martinique, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands. Be sure not to miss St. Kitts if you’re an outdoorsy couple, St. Maarten for peace and quiet plus plenty of culture, or the Caymans for incredible dive spots.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend? We have a jam packed week ahead on the blog with some lovely real weddings to share with you. We are starting off with this gorgeous Marquee Wedding in Somerset, courtesy of Devon Wedding Photographers Warren and Carmen. Ruth and Neville spent a lot of time going to other peoples weddings before they got married themlevs, so they knew exactly what they wanted by the time it got ot their big day. A relaxed, laid back, non traditonal day filled with lots of personal touches and homemade details.
Ruth and Neville were married on the 21st May 2016 at Cowparsley Weddings, Roughmoor Farm in Taunton, Somerset. ‘We knew we wanted something different, and loved the idea of an outdoor wedding in a natural environment. After a LOT of research, we stumbled across www.cocoweddingvenues.co.uk, and Cowparsley weddings stood out. From the moment we walked through the gate we fell in love! A sunny Somerset farm filled with wild flowers and hay bales, a gorgeous vintage marquee and the flexibility to make it totally DIY, choosing every supplier ourselves. We loved the idea of getting married outside and Cowparsley provided a beautiful orchard where ceremonies could take place. Little did we know that typical British weather would scupper our plans and that rain would take us into the gorgeous marquee for our special moment. But we loved it! If the weather is key to your day, having a plan B is definitely something to consider – make sure your guests are well provided for with umbrellas etc, just go with the flow and embrace it all! The wedding took 8 months to plan.’
Happy weekend everyone. Today I have the pleasure of bringing you our weekly edition of Boho Pins. Todays chosen topic is Black and White images and have we got a gorgeous collection for you. We love black and white photography here at Boho, Kelly always makes sure there are plenty of black and white images in the real weddings, along with colour to add in a good mixture and variety. Personally I always find black and white photos very calming, and find they often cut through the busy drama or activities they capture, instead presenting a muted snapshot of a moment. Take a look below, are you a fan of B&W?
The Boho Directory is a hand-picked list of the top wedding suppliers in the business, ready to help you plan your Boho wedding.

It is split up into suppliers and regions making it easy for you to find the perfect Boho supplier for your wedding.
To make sure you don’t miss any of the wonderful suppliers that have been added to the directory, each week I showcase the suppliers that have joined in a mini update.

For those regular readers of the blog, and for those who follow me over on instagarm, you will know that recently Nik and I were invited to Ragdale Hall to experience the delights of their thermal spa and all that venue had to offer. I’m not going to beat around the bush, we had an AMAZING time! The food, the relaxation, the treatments, OMG! we were thoroughly spoilt! I can not recommend Ragdale Hall enough. If you are looking for somewhere to go for your hen do, or stag do, or if you are looking for somewhere to take a mini moon, or even a weeks break, then this is the place for you!
Nik had such a great time that he has decided to take over the blog this afternoon and tell you all about it.
Hi there Boho readers! As you will probably guess, given that it is me that is writing this post, we here at Boho HQ have recently enjoyed a stay away at a wonderful spa! One of the benefits of being the long suffering husband of the world’s hardest working blogger is that occasionally an opportunity presents itself to review a wedding venue or restaurant or hotel.
On this occasion, it was the beautifully presented Ragdale Hall, halfway between Nottingham and Leicester on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray. Those that know Melton Mowbray as the home of the humble Pork Pie would be surprised to find a health spa in its midst!
The hardest part for us is to find someone to look after Mini Boho, but once he is safely seconded to his Nana, we are very quickly looking forward to some valuable time alone and what better way to spend it than in the awesome surroundings of Ragdale Hall. A long sweeping driveway from a countryside road takes you to a gorgeous period manor house, added to over the years but retaining all the charm of a stately home. Let me say though, there is nothing olde worlde about the welcome we received on arrival. Purely first class.
Our bags were whisked away to our room, the car was valet parked (I wished the inside was clean and tidy, but my life on the road put pay to that!) and we were taken to the Garden Room Bar for a quick drink and introduction. Me, an earl grey (with milk……), Kelly, a delicious looking fruit punch. We were given our room key and told that we wouldn’t need any money or cards as everything could be charged to the room and settled on check out. Excellent, as there are not many places to keep a wallet in a dressing gown and swimming shorts!
