Welcome to the weekend everyone! It’s time for this week’s edition of Boho Pins where Kelly and I choose our favourite pins of the week from the wedding world and Boho boards. This week’s theme is one of my absolute favourites and today we are looking at cake! Naked wedding cakes to be specific – decorated only with a touch of cream, a sprinkle of icing sugar, fruit and flowers. So gorgeous, pretty, and absolutely mouthwatering!

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have all had a wonderful week and are looking forward to some fun weekend activities. I am super excited as this is the first proper week of new working schedule. I now work Monday – Thursday no Fridays and no Saturdays, so my weekend officially starts today, it also means that for the first time in 8 years I actually get Saturdays off, which I am so excited about! Today to finish of our fabulous week of weddings, we are taking you off to France for this beautiful French Château wedding. Morgane and Frédéric filled their day with pretty white, mint and peach details along with a wonderful origami theme, including 1000 paper cranes made by the groom to represent good luck. A stunning wedding with a beautiful backdrop, captured beautifully by Estudio Dita.
Morgane and Frédéric were married on the 11th June 2016 at Château de Beaussais, Bretagne, France. ‘Both of us have family in Bretagne and we wanted a marriage close to the sea and to the nature. We had 150 guests and the wedding planning took almost a year. We were helped by our wedding planner.’
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are having a good week so far? Today we have a very different style of shoot to share with you, set at the North Star Club York, and the brainchild of Betty Timbo of Bespoke Vintage Castle and Jane Beadnell Photography. With some incredible accessories, hair and makeup, this is a modern take on bohemian vintage, incorporating delicate sugarcraft and festival vibes! It sounds like a crazy combination but the outcome is beautiful, delicate and oh so on trend! I love it!
Today we are in the gorgeous Cotswolds for the wedding of Ady and Zia. The Great Tythe Barn is a venue local to the couple and it was a no-brainer one they went to see it, the barn held everything they wanted for their big day. As the couple love the beach ad surfing, they decided on a beach themed wedding, complete with inflatable fish, beach balls, beach signs and fishing nets. With lots of personal touches and handmade touches, this wedding is super pretty and has been captured perfectly by regular to the blog, Kevin Belson Photography.
Ady and Zia were married on the 1st April 2017 at The Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury in the Cotswolds. ‘After getting engaged we started our search for wedding venues in and around our area and came across The Great Tythe Barn. As soon as we walked in the barn we both fell in love with it and booked it more or less straight away! We had 97 guests in the day, 144 in the evening, and the wedding took 16 months to plan.’
This afternoon we have another fabulous edition of Ask the Experts and James & Lianne are here as resident photography experts to talk about unplugged weddings! As technology, smart phones and tablets have taken off over the past few years, this is something we are seeing more and more of! Here on the blog we have found unplugged weddings to be quite the talking point, and has raised quite a few discussions over the past few years. James and Lianne make quite a few very valid points, so we would love to hear your thoughts on the subject. Have you had an unplugged wedding? or are you planning one? We would love you to join in the discussion.
Unplugged weddings – it says it on the tin, weddings without the distraction of modern gadgets. No phones, no iPads, just all your guests attention on you. Perhaps a little self-indulgent, maybe a tad narcissistic, and a slight whiff of bridezillaism? Telling your guests what they can and can’t do seems like you could be killing the fun but there’s perfectly good reasons and benefits to being a bit of a diva.
It’s nice for your family and friends to actually witness your wedding, enjoy the speeches and just have their attention during the day. If they’re busy trying to decide whether Valencia or Juno would be a better filter for that photo they took of you from the very back of the church, they may as well not even be there.
As professional photographers ourselves, we know that many of our couples value the photos their guests took, at least to begin with. They’re uploaded instantly and you can see them immediately. But, the vast majority of those photos are just what the professionals took but from a worse angle… at a more unflattering moment… and then a filter applied… and they’re just nowhere near as good. Then we, the pros, get you a few previews up within a day or so and then you’ve got the whole gallery within a few weeks making those photos your work friend took of you eating a miniature Yorkshire pudding during the drinks reception seem less flattering. You’ve paid someone to do the job properly, tell your guests to enjoy themselves, party and scoff canapes. You don’t need their bad photos!
