boho loves

The new year is in full flow now we are in March, the Spring/Summer months will be upon us before we know it. We thought that today it would be a good time to share with you some 2015 Spring/Summer Make Up trends. I personally feel it is great to keep refreshing your make up by styles, the colours and what type of product you use, it keeps you looking fresh and on trend! Today I am pleased to bring Julia Jeckell to the blog to tell you more about the 2015 trends.

Make up trends for Boho inspired Weddings Spring & Summer 2015…How to create the perfect bridal make-up look to compliment pastel colours…

Spring and Summer Make Up Trends

I’ll pass the blog over to Julia……….

Spring will soon be upon us, with many boho inspired Weddings picking up on a popular trend: pastels. With the Brides dress in pale delicate lace and bridesmaids in light and airy pastels, how do you create a natural long-lasting glowing make-up look to suit all skin tones without looking pale and washed out?

Spring and Summer Make Up Trends

Creating the perfect base

Bridal make-up needs to have enough colour to compensate for the paleness of the dress. There’s a big difference between everyday clothes and a Wedding dress, so there should be a difference in the make-up too.
I like to sit the Bride in natural light and start by making sure the skin looks smooth and even. The first step is using a great moisturiser that matches the skin type. For example if a Bride has oily skin, go for a moisturiser such as ‘Active Moist’ by Dermalogica‘ which is oil free and acts as oil control primer. (more…)

Gemma and Gareth’s Up Cycled Travel Themed Winter Wedding. By Roar Photography


Well hello you lovely people and welcome along to another Wednesday! It’s officially the middle of the week and I am so excited! It’s my birthday on Saturday so I am counting down the days till I can go out and celebrate! Shopping, cocktails, a lovely meal and dancing are on the menu, so I can’t wait! Today I have a gorgeous winter wedding for you from Paul at Roar Photography, it’s a really lovely wedding with some amazing details. With winter weddings for me it’s all about the use of light and this wedding has so many lovely touches. I just love the giant light up letters and all of the little tea lights and fairy lights that make the venue so pretty. The vintage travel theme is present throughout and works really well with the rest of the gorgeous decor.

Gareth and Gemma were married on 20th December 2014 at the Hundred House Hotel in Norton Bridgnorth. ‘We chose the venue because it was super quirky, with award winning secret gardens and a fabulous chef. It also had the all important Ironbridge Brewery guest ales, the only factor for consideration according to my brother! We had a total of 80 guests and the wedding took 11 months to plan.’

boho loves

As you know here at Boho we think that photography is REALLY important, a unique and pesonal wedding is all well and good but if you don’t have the memories of the day captured with some wonderful photos then the day can be lost forever. I feel that an important part of my role as a wedding blogger is to introduce you to lots of different photographers, all with different styles but all of a high-caliber and today I have a wonderful photographer to introduce you to. David Morgan Photography specialise in photojournalism ‘Capturing Emotional Moments Between People’ in an unobtrusive and subtle manner. His use of light, flash and lights and darks is amazing, I just know you are going to love his work.

.The fundamental part of my style is based in photojournalism. By that I mean that I am really focused on capturing emotional moments between people. That said, I really enjoy crafting atmospheric portraits of my clients using off camera flash and ambient light and, in recent years, I have developed this to evening and night time portraits too. The light can be really spectacular in the evening and it’s a shame not to take advantage of that sometimes.’
