Happy Monday everyone and welcome along to another jam-packed week at Boho Weddings, did you have a good weekend? Mine was lovely, I spent it with my mum who I don’t get to see very often as she lives on Cornwall, but she came up for a couple of days to see me and Dexter.
Talking of Cornwall, todays wedding takes us to the beautiful beaches of Cornwall for this gorgeous wedding of Ros and Simon. They decided to have a wedding in two parts the day would be spent with a vintage tea party at their local village hall, and the evening as at their local beach cafe for dancing and dinner. A full on day of fun, relaxed, chilled and filled with love. Thanks to Captured by Katrina for the images.
‘A jam packed, busy, varied day, hopefully showcasing our interests and lifestyle. A relaxed, informal, village beginning with a sophisticated beach side evening’
Rosalyn and Simon were married on 14th March 2015 at St Stythian’s, Stithians in Cornwall. There was an afternoon tea party at the Village hall, Stithians, Cornwall and the reception was held at Gylly Beach Cafe, Falmouth in Cornwall. ‘Well, choosing the Church was easy, we live next door, a grassy meadow separates us from it. When we have our breakfast in the morning, we look over our cottage garden to the church spire and clock. We knew that view would always remind us of our wedding day. Gylly Beach Café was also an obvious choice for us, in fact us wanting it dictated a lot of our wedding plans. Simon runs a water sports business (Gylly Adventures) off the beach and I train there regularly (with Fitness Wild). We love the sea. We love Cornwall. We wanted our guests, many of whom travelled from out of county, to experience an evening on the beach.
Gylly Beach Café don’t do private functions as their regular, loyal customers are of high priority to them, but they very kindly accommodated us, if we had our wedding day out of tourist season: hence our March wedding, and at 6.00pm: allowing for their regular day time customers to not be turned away. So that meant we needed somewhere for our guests to hang out before 6.00pm. The village hall was perfect. Right beside the church, it enabled us to have a relaxed, informal tea party for many guests to mingle. We had an adjoining room which we filled with toys of the children.
I’m not sure how many actually turned up but around 120 at the church ceremony and vintage tea party, of which 70 were invited to the formal sit down diner at Gylly Beach Café. Many of the church guests then joined us for dancing at Gylly after diner. In fact, they managed to catch the speeches too which was great! We sent out the save the date about a year a head of time, we have family and friends scattered all around the world so it was important to us to give them plenty of notice. We booked our music about 6 months ahead and I was collecting vintage tea cups at car boot sales for the year. However after that we didn’t really do much planning until a couple of months before.
Happy Sunday everyone and how are you today? I do hope you are having a lovely weekend? Mine has been wonderful as my mum has come to visit from Cornwall. It was January that we saw her last and since then Dexter has changed so much. It really has been lovely having her here and spending a bit of time together. Today we are off for a day trip out to a wildlife centre juts on the outskirts of Sheffield, mum loves animals as does Dexter so what better way to spend the day together, I can’t wait.
In Boho news Kelly C has a very exciting trip next week, she is off far away and will be reporting back for the blog, all will be revealed on Wednesday, so watch this space.

I have been trying to get ahead of myself ready for the Bridal Blogathon (you will hear more about this on Wednesday) next week so all I have done really this week is work. I did however manage to grab a pub lunch on Wednesday and sit in the sun a little. It was delightful! I am shooting a wedding today so I am hoping we get a little time with some sunshine. I hope you have some great plans for this weekend.

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.
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.
Entertaining the Kids
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.
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.’
