Hannah and Paul’s Woodstock Themed Yellow DIY Wedding. By Darren Mack


Happy Monday everyone and how are you all today? I hope you had a good weekend and are now ready for the week ahead? I have a gorgeous wedding for you today to start the week off in style, full of my favourite things; yellow, pretty flowers, a fab venue and lots of amazing details. Hannah and Paul took on a ‘Woodstock’ theme for their day and incorporated a huge amount of homemade projects and DIY details, making sure that the wedding was fun and personal to them. As yellow is my favourite colour I am just loving all the pretty yellow accents. Big thanks to Darren Mack for the images.

‘Themed around music, peace, happiness and love; and the colour yellow! The best day of our lives, without question!’

Hannah and Paul were married on 28th June at New House Farm, Lorton, Lake District. ‘The Lake District has been a significant place for Hannah for a long time so the lakes were always an option. However it was the venue which made us choose where we got married; we fell in love with it from the first viewing and because the venue allows you to do whatever you like every wedding is different. We hired the chairs, tables, tablecloths, glasses, caterers, DJ etc all separate to get our perfect image! We had 99 guests and then around 135 for the evening, it took 18 months to plan.’

Diary of a Boho Bride – Emily & Jonny, Entry 2: Save The Dates & “Minus 1 Year” Wedding Anniversary.


diary of a boho bride

Happy Friday afternoon everyone! and how are you all? This afternoon I have another instalment of Diary of a Boho Bride for you and today it’s the turn of Emily and Jonny. Last time Emily talked to us about her experience of wedding dress shopping. Today it is all about the Save the Dates and the fact that it is now 1 year till they get married. Emily’s stationery sounds lovely as does the whole theme to theme of the wedding, I can’t wait to see the finished result!

Emily and Jonny

I’ll pass you over to Emily………

This month we have been focused on our save the dates and our “minus 1 year” Wedding Anniversary. I’m writing this post on the 12th September, exactly one year until our wedding day. The thought of this is so exciting. My family and friends have been bombarded with texts of excitement and giddiness already and it isn’t even 9am!

This time next year, I wonder what I’ll be doing and what I’ll be thinking. Will I be stressed, calm or tipsy? I really don’t know, but the more organized I can be in the next 12 months, the better.

  • 12 months of counting down the days.
  • 12 months of organisation and preparation; stacking magazines and mood boards galore.
  • 12 months of wedding talk.
  • 12 months to get the desired wedding figure (unfortunately this cannot be pre-booked or bought)
  • 12 months of wedding dreams and nightmares; I had one the other night in which none of the chairs matched and the flower girls had no petals to throw down the aisle. Ok, the nightmares aren’t so dramatic at the minute; let’s hope they stay like that! Please share your wedding dreams and nightmares; I think they make good reading!

Bring on the next 12 months! It’s going to be great. This time next year, we’ll be married.

Our wedding day in Romania, in the heart of Transyvania was filled to the brim with culture, tradition, friends, drinking, dancing and bride hiding and stealing, not to mention the crowing and hopping test we had to pass to be allowed to wed! Such an incredible day and in a beautiful country! Romania constantly surprised us during our stay there. Cluj Napoca is such a beautiful and historic town with a young, modern edge. Coffee shops and cool bars with outdoor seating lined the streets and gorgeous boutique stores hid among homes along cobbled streets.

We were to travel in convoy up to Lapustesti where all of our guests would set up tents for the night, build bonfires and then change for the wedding. We sat nervously waiting with bated breath until everyone arrived. We drove to the meeting point and soon our original 4 cars and Peggy turned into 10 cars and Peggy all with coloured streamers attached to bumpers, windows, handles and aerials and all tooting horns and toting beer and Tuica! We wound our way to the village then with the thunder! The heavens opened and as the coloured streamers got wet they painted rainbows down the sides of the cars and across wet windshields. The rain had thankfully died down to a drizzle as we arrived in Lapustesti and were greeted by Vasile and Silvia, the lovely old couple we had met the previous day. The whole village became a hive of activity, the men gathering wood for bonfires and putting up tents, the women collecting wild flowers from the nearby fields to make me a bouquet and Alex and I stood in the middle of it all completely bewildered but with a plastic beaker of wine in hand! It seemed like only moments had passed when Alex was led in one direction and I in the other.

Rebecca and Harry’s Vintage Inspired Barn Wedding with a Candy Anthony Dress. By Tom Halliday


I have anther gorgeous wedding for you today courtesy of Tom Halliday. It’s the wedding of Rebecca and Harry who have pulled together a fabulous feast of vintage inspired loveliness, coupled with some amazing DIY projects. With a stunning Candy Anthony dress and a rather dashing vintage tweed suit, Rebecca and Harry are certainly a very stylish couple and lovers of anything with a vintage twist. They had a good strong idea how they wanted their wedding to look and feel, and this they achieved with lots of research, lots of planning and lots of hard work. From the hessian bunting to the gorgeous bridesmaids dresses, the ice cream van to the amazing decoration, everything about this wedding is first class and just brimming with beautiful details.

‘One of the most perfect and happiest fun filled days we’ve ever had. The wedding we had always dreamt about and will never ever forget.’

Rebecca and Harry were married on the 30th May 2014 at Leatherhead registry office, followed by a reception at Gildings Barn, Surrey. ‘Harry has always dreamed of being a farmer and we both love the countryside so we knew we wanted to celebrate our special day in a barn. We tried over 25 venues, but most were fully booked for the months between May to September and the ones available just weren’t quite right! We’d almost given up hope and decided to postpone our wedding when we came across Gildings barn. The minute we stepped through the door we knew this was our dream venue. The barn itself was absolutely stunning inside and set in beautiful grounds. It was in a very private rural location which was exactly what we wanted. One of the most appealing things was we hired the barn as a blank canvas and were able to decorate it and make it our own for the day. We both wanted an informal, small, wedding ceremony, so decided upon a registry office. Leatherhead wasn’t far from the barn and the garden of the registry office was a very pretty setting for the photos afterwards. We were able to personalise the ceremony by choosing our own readings, music and vows.We had a relatively small wedding with an intimate ceremony with 28 of our immediate family and close friends at the registry office, with 37 additional for lunch at the barn and 15 additional in the evening. The wedding took 16 weeks to plan!’
