Today is the Blogs 4th Birthday, so I just wanted to say a little Happy Birthday to me and to say a BIG thank you to you the readers of the Blog for always being there and for making the blog what it is today without you the blog would be nothing, I’d be sitting here writing with no one to read my endless wedding ramblings, so the fact your tune in on a daily basis, leave comments, leave love on the Facebook page, tweet me and share my photo pinterest is a really big thing for me.
I started the blog in 2009 as an extension of my wedding planning site, I set myself a target of blogging 3 times a week to highlight the work I was doing with my wedding planning. Fast forward 4 years and here we are, the blog has gone from strength to strength, as has its readership. Since then the blog has had a massive re design which has really cemented it’s place in the wedding blog market, it has won awards, been voted in many top 100 and top 10 lists, it is read internationally and is growing in popularity each month.
Next Year will see the start of a new project for Boho Weddings and a brand new addition to the Blog (no not a baby blog). It is an exciting progression for the Blog and it will mean even more fresh content on a weekly basis for you! More details of this in the new year!
I still love my job, I love bringing you beautiful real weddings, fun DIY tutorials, the latest wedding trends, inspiration, wedding planning advice and offering the blog up for discussions. But as I said the blog would be nothing without you.
So today I am sending you all virtual birthday cake! and saying a BIG Thank You for your continued support! Here’s to another amazing year at Boho Weddings. The future sure does look exciting!
Big Boho Birthday Love
I have a super pretty and elegant wedding for you today courtesy of Daffodil Waves Photography. The wedding takes place at Warwick House, who offer the option of an outdoor ceremony, and as we had such an amazing summer of sun this year, Vicky and Tom were able to hold their ceremony in the beautiful gardens. With the help of friends and family Vicky pulled together a beautiful pale pink wedding with a ‘Vintage floral’ theme. Lots of shabby chic details mixed with elegant dressing makes this wedding oh so pretty. I am loving the big light up letters at the end of the post and of course this gorgeous couple and the amazing sunny weather, bring back summer!
‘The day I got to marry my best friend. The most perfect day on the hottest day of the year, filled with sunshine and happiness!’
Vicky and Tom were married on the 1st August at Warwick House, Southam. ‘I came across Warwick House in a magazine and when we went along to their open day we instantly fell in love with it! The décor was elegant and neutral and we knew it would fit the style of our wedding perfectly. We had 74 day guests and another 100 in the night! The wedding took 18 months to plan, enough time to complete all the DIY elements I wanted to add to the day.’
As you know Christmas is just round the corner and I did promise you a few christmas related posts, so today I have a Christmas review from Dot Com Gift shop. Dot Com Gift shop is a lovely website selling a variety of gifts, decorations, wedding bits and bobs, items for the home and garden and all round manner of pretty. It is possible to get lost on the site for hours searching out more and more things to purchase!
As well as a great selection of wedding stuff, they currently have a wonderful selection fo Christmas decorations, items and gifts! I would strongly recommend you pop over toe the website and have a look and, maybe purchase a sneaky little gift or decoration for christmas while you are there. There is so much choice and everything has such a unique and pretty look and feel to it! I love it, so much so that the guys at Dot Com Gift shop sent me over a selection of christmas goodies to review!
I Love this pretty garland, with 20 LED lights, it is battery powers so it can go anywhere, round your computer screen, on a mantel piece, as a table decoration. I placed it on our living room mirror and it works beautifully as the mirror catches more lights. It makes our front room super festive. The bells are a great addition and make a very festive sound!
£2.95 for 6 meters
Great vealue for money, this Christamas ribbon comes in a selction of designs. We will be using it coupled with brown paper and luggae tags for an old fashion festive feel.
£9.95 (was £24.95)
I think this is my favorite item out fo the lot and was really impressed with the size, it is a lot bigger than I expected, as I thought it was going to be the size of an actual christmas tree bauble It has a distressed feel to it and has little fairylights inside which make a gorgeous glow when lite up. We have this dangling from the mirror that the bell garland is on. The only down side is it does need to be plugged into a power point, so you are a bit restricted to where you can hang it as the cable cold be a bit longer.
I have a beautiful wedding for you today, and what makes it more special is that the whole thing took place in the family garden, including the ceremony. With a relaxed, meadow theme this bohemian wedding is full of beautiful details and some gorgeous photography courtesy of Chris Fishleigh Photograpy. Hollie and Matthew are a stunning couple and I am totally in love with Holly’s Rembo Styling dress, complete with her flower crown she looks absolutely beautiful! As for the choccywoccydoodah cake, wow! Another masterpiece from them! I just love this wedding, the ceremony under the tree is so special and the rest of the wedding follows the relaxed chilled out vibe, just perfect!
‘Our wedding was absolutely the best day. A day we will truly cherish for the rest of our lives’
Hollie & Matthew were married on the 10th August, under a tree in their garden, Crowborough, East Sussex. ‘Having looked at a number of beautiful locations in Sussex, we didn’t find anywhere that we loved as much as we did the garden! Having it at home also allowed us to create our dream wedding on our budget. We had 135 guests and it took us a full year to plan’.
Today we carry on with our Month of Christmas DIY’s with a rather special Christmas tutorial from Emily Carlill from Love me Sew. Last week Anna from Download and print showed you how to make these FREE Printable Paper Christmas Ornaments and we have more Christmas DIY tutorials coming up in the next couple of weeks. This tutorial from Emily comes in 3 parts, so you can choose to just do the first part or do all 3, it all depends on how much time you have and how creating your are feeling! It really is a fab tutorial, Emily has pulled out all the stops for you today!
There are three parts to this napkin tutorial; the first is making the napkin, the second printing on the napkin and the third making the ‘holly’ ties for the napkin. You many choose to skip out either the second or third stage or these.
Happy Monday everyone, and how are you all today? Did you have a good weekend? It’s a short week for me this week as I’m off from Thursday down to London for Nik’s works Christmas party and then onto a big family Christmas do. I haven’t seen my mum since June, so I’m looking forward to spending some time with her.
The wedding submissions have been coming in thick and fast and I have a great selection for you this week, starting with this fab festival wedding courtesy of Lifeline Photography. Liz and Jamie did a fantastic job of pulling together this DIY wedfest themed day. Complete with double-decker bar, bouncy castle, silent disco, loads of DIY decorations and lots of gorgeous details. I haven’t seen a couple of smile as much for a long time, they are certainly very much in love and full of happiness and laughter, a real pleasure to see.
Wedfest family fun that represented Jamie and I perfectly where friends and family had a relaxed inebriated fun day.
Liz and Jamie were married on the 3rd August at Normanton Church on Rutland Water. The reception was a cricket field where the family used to play cricket, rented out by the local village committee. ‘I used to cycle round Rutland Water every summer holiday. When Jamie asked what type of place we were looking for I took him there, not knowing they had got a licence the year before. It was destiny. We had 70 guests (with 25 children) and it took one year to plan’.
