Hello to you all on this lovely Thursday morning, kelly C Here. I am so pleased to be sharing with you today this lovely bridal styled shoot. It’s great as a photographer or a wedding supplier to get together and create something a little different the the usual wedding day. It’s also great for brides or grooms to be able to see styled shoots as it can be something out of the ordinary/non traditional that you can’t seem to find in a real wedding but want to add to your own wedding. Today we are sharing with you this gorgeous styled shoot. It has elements of rustic, vintage, with romantic flair all the things we love here at Boho HQ. It’s lovely to see a nice lovely bright shoot.
‘Rustic and romantic. This shoot features soft and vintage elements that tie in with a bohemian, free-spirited vibe.’
I’ll pass you over to Caiti to tells us more about the shoot……….
For our styled Shoot We wanted to show the best of what Wyoming has to offer. Elements of rustic, vintage, with romantic flair.
The flowers feature: dahlias, blueberries, ranunculus, dog eye greenery, kale, various roses, dusty miller, geranium greenery. The naked wedding cake features buttercream layers and is dressed with an ombre style with florals featured again to match the bridal bouquet. The details of vintage inspired ribbon on the bouquet compliment the vintage laced bridal gown, pairing with brown leather boots to keep this wedding down to earth and free spirited.
This event was shot at the venue park in Gillette, Wyoming, featuring rustic elements and wildlife country that Wyoming is known for. Party favors and desserts were executed in the color scheme of soft pink, blue, ivory, with a pop of autumn yellow for contrast. We hope that the best of Wyoming comes forth in this eclectic styled wedding shoot. (more…)
Wow it’s Thursday already! The week sure is going quickly. I was at Chatsworth Christmas market yesterday and after planning a few more social events in my diary it made me realise how fast approaching Christmas is! It won’t be long at all now and I haven’t done a spot of shopping yet, what about you? Todays wedding is a laid back affair that took place in the brides parents back garden. A marquee took all 120 guests and was filled with fab DIY projects, one of the main ones being 1000 Origami Paper Birds created by the brides father! I am especially liking Samuel’s suit which was tailor-made for him, I just love the colour combo and the mix and match feel, very stylish! Big thanks to Nicki Feltham Photography for the images.
Stephanie and Samuel were married on 6th September 2014 at St Stephens Church, Mundham, West Sussex and the Reception at my parents’ house in Runcton, West Sussex, nr Chichester. ‘I grew up there in the same house and it is somewhere Sam and I have spent a lot of time. Sam was born and grew up in Singapore but has been in England since he was 17 while his parents continued to live abroad so, he doesn’t have a ’hometown’ as it were. I’d never thought too much about the type of wedding I wanted but I knew I wanted to get ready at my mum and dads house. I looked at a few venues but we felt none of them meant anything to us like Hillside, so we decided to go for the marquee option. We had, in the end 120 guests and it took 16 months to plan.’
You might recognise the name Tiffany Wright from The Proposers TV show. She was the girl running around like a mad woman arranging proposals on Sky TV
Well nowadays Tiffany has spread her wings to more than just proposals and has set up the UK’s first Romance Concierge with her sister Amanda. The One Romance, specialised in arranging romantic experiences –from out of this world marriage proposals to romantic dates. So, if your man is rubbish at Romance, then One Romance girls are the people to go to….they’ll soon sort him out.
I’ll let Tiffany explain more……
My sister and I set up The One Romance after witnessing a friend give his wife a Lawn Mower for their wedding anniversary! We were shocked that someone could get romance so wrong! People knew I was a proposal planner and were used to me talking about the amazing proposals I had arranged but at that moment it struck me that romance was more than just proposals. So, we set up the UK and Europe’s First Romance Planning Company. We specialise in being proposal planners and arranging amazing proposals but we also want to make sure that the romance continued AFTER the proposal too. Which is where our Romance concierge service comes into play
So what is a Romance Concierge?
We are basically luxury romance planners. So, if your husband wants to surprise you with an incredible wedding anniversary, we will plan something completely spectacular and personalised to you! It’s like an extension of our proposals. We find a lot of our clients use us as their proposal planners and then stick with us for life – wanting us to plan every romantic event in their lives going forward!
We now offer a service where we will go shopping for a day with the guy and help him pick the perfect romantic gift or engagement ring. And the exiting bit? We even have a celebrity following! Yup we have helped certain celebrities be romantic!
Where are you based?
Our office in is Mayafair, London but we arrange proposals and offer our romance concierge service worldwide. I was actually flown over to Australia a few weeks ago to arrange a proposal which was incredible!
(I was flown over to Sydney to help arrange this proposal. It included 2 helicopters one for me and one for the couple! A secret secluded private beach, a personalised picnic and a gorgeous engagement ring! We then arranged a surprise engagement party for the couple back in Sydney afterwards!) (more…)
I have a real treat of a wedding for you today, courtesy of Rosko and Wallis. It’s a true London wedding, which takes place in an amazing venue, the Islington Metalworks. Islington has a very special place in my heart as it is where I was born. I wasn’t there for long before we moved to Cornwall, however it is still a place I hold dear, which makes me even more excited about this wedding! I just love the venue, the decor, the tower of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the tube map table plan, and all the lovely London meets India touches. To top it off DJ Luck and MC Neat made a surprise appearance at the wedding reception, which really got the party going! Well done Ruth and Alex on a superb wedding, I would have loved to have been a guest!
‘The Ceremony was Relaxed, memorable, unique… well-executed! The Reception had great food, atmosphere and to quote the entertainers “This isn’t a wedding, it’s a rave!’
Ruth and Alex were married on Saturday 2nd August 2014 at Islington Town Hall, Angel in London and their reception was at Islington Metalworks. ‘The venue found us! On one dreary Sunday after looking at venues in King’s Cross (which turned out to be stuffy and well out of our price range) we decided to poke our heads through the Metalworks, as a friend of a friend had recently got married there and both of us had been on various nights out there. We instantly loved the venue, the staff and how much creative control we could have on the place. Not to mention their epic prop room too. Angel is also a very special place for us, we lived, shopped, exercised, dined, raved, argued and drank in various places nearby! We had 100 guests for the Ceremony and a further 100 were invited for the Reception. We secured the venues in April 2013 (Town hall is very popular). But the bulk of the wedding planning took 6 months.’
Today I am delighted to have one of my favourite stationery companies on the Blog, WEDFEST is the brain child of Marty McColgan and is absolutely perfect for the Boho bride and groom. As the name suggests WEDFEST specialises in wedding stationery for festival themed weddings and with so many weddings taking on a festival or music theme these days their designs are incredibly popular. I just love the colours, the designs, the great use of imagination and I’m sure you will to!
‘Wedfest is the ultimate rock ‘n roll wedding stationery company. Catering for festival weddings, rock ‘n roll brides, bohemian couples and anyone looking for some amazing and alternative wedding stationery. Specialising in themed wedding stationery couples can choose from our many existing designs or have stationery custom designed. We supply everything from Save the dates and wedding invitations to order of service, wedding table plans and much more.’
I’ll pas you over to Marty to tell you more……….
WEDFEST can provide a complete range of wedding stationery. Starting with save the date cards we have made these as festival flyers, festival wristbands, bookmarks and basically anything you can think of.
Next up is wedding invitations. Our main range of invites is festival ticket themed wedding invitations. These are wedding invites in the style of festival/concert tickets with a detachable RSVP that the wedding guests can tear off and send back to the soon to be married couple. However we can create all sorts of styles of wedding invitations, we have a huge range on our website so have a look and see what grabs you.
For the day of the wedding we have lots of products on offer such as festival programme style lanyards which can be used as wedding place names, order of service, running orders, wedding information etc etc the list is endless. We also make festival wristbands, which really are the Pièce de résistance of the festival wedding. With your wedding guests all wearing their festival wristbands they will really feel part of a special occasion. Coupled with the awesome festival lanyards your guests will wonder are they at an actual wedding or just woke up in Glastonbury! These are a great keepsake for a festival themed wedding and as you know people usually keep festival wristbands on for a few weeks after the event, so all of your wedding guests will be part of your special little festival club for weeks to come.
I have a gorgeous wedding to share with you today, it’s a beautiful barn wedding with an outdoor humanist ceremony, two of my favourite wedding elements! Ditte and Andrew wanted a ceremony that was truly personal to them, so they chose an outdoor ceremony under a huge tree, while writing their own vows, a truly beautiful ceremony. The reception was held in Earth Trust’s Fison Barn which was the perfect choice for their vintage inspired theme. They went for lots of DIY and handmade elements to keep down costs and also to inject even more personality into their day. I just love this wedding it is so full of character. It is pretty, rustic and oh so charming, captured perfectly by Sarah Morris Photography.
‘A truly special day that made us feel so lucky to have such lovely and amazing friends and family – the day was magical in every way and we couldn’t have wished for anything else’
Ditte and Andrew were married on 6th August 2014 at Fison Barn, Earth Trust, Little Wittenham, Oxfordshire. ‘We saw one other venue before visiting Earth Trust’s Fison Barn in Little Wittenham near the Wittenham clumps. Earth Trust is a charity concerned with living sustainably and looking after the environment, which is something Andrew and I think is important. Earth Trust is surrounded by some of the loveliest countryside in England and we fell in love with the place the first time we saw it, and knew this would be a perfect wedding venue for us. As well as being completely stunning in its own right the 18th century renovated barn was the perfect blank canvas we were looking for. We had 100 for dinner and a further 40 people arrived in the evening. We booked the venue a year in advance, but we didn’t start planning properly until 6 months before the wedding.’
