Hollie and Tom’s Relaxed Handmade Wedding. By Robertamatis


Todays wedding comes from East Sussex and is a lovely relaxed and chilled out day, FULL of handmade details and decorations. The couple, Hollie and Tom set about creating a wedding that was full of character and personally by making lots of the elements themselves and in doing so managed to keep the costs down. Their day was full of love, laughter and dancing, a perfect combination for any wedding. Thanks to Roberta from  Robertamatis for the images.

‘Full of love, fun, laughter and dancing. Relaxed and intimate’

Hollie and Tom were married on 4th May at Swallows Oast, Ticehurst, East Sussex. ‘We knew we wanted a barn or oast house and having looked at a few online, this was the first we visited and we fell in love with it immediately and booked it then and there. For the ceremony we had about 50ish guests and for the Reception there were about 120.’

DIY Tutorial – Spring Wreath


DIY Header

Springtime is most definitely my favourite season.  Watching the flowers burst into life, the snow and cold disappear and finally being able to hang the washing out on the line (yes I am that person who gets excited over washing on the line).  Today I am happy to bring you this beautiful spring wreath.  You can make it with real flowers or here like Sofia has with artificial flowers to make it last just a little longer.  I love this DIY post.  It’s easy to follow and looks beautiful.  You could make these for decoration at your wedding reception.  They would make a very pretty addition to any wedding.

Sofia from Sofia Plana tells us more on how to make the spring wreath

It’s  a super easy DIY that you can even do with your family and friends as a crafty evening plan. I used artificial flowers this time because I wanted the wreath to last a long time, but you can also do it with fresh flowers.  All you need extra is floral tape for the stems. (more…)

Rosalyn and Simon’s Cornish Tea Party Beach Wedding. By Captured By Katrina


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.

I’ll hand you over to Kerry…

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.

Wedding Invitations

Invitations, Kids and Groomsmen

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.
