They describe their style as ‘a mix of classic and modern with a fashion edge’. The couple take pride in their technical kit and are keen to offer a first class service to each and every one of their wedding clients.

I Love todays wedding, absolutely LOVE it! What makes it even better is that the lovely bride Claire is a regular reader of the blog and found her very talented photographer Yvonne Lishman from these yellow gingham pages! The wedding is set in my home town of Sheffield, literally just up the road from where I love and is FULL of gorgeous ideas, homemade details and lots fo DIY projects that were all pulled together by friends and family. Another thing I love is the variety of food on offer. All served food truck style, from Pizza to Paella and ice cream to crepes. What an absolutely gorgeous day with a beautiful outdoor ceremony set in some of the most gorgeous surroundings! Just lovely!
‘The perfect day of relaxed family fun. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful setting, beautiful people’
Claire and Neil were married on 26th July 2014 at Loadbrook Cottages, Sheffield. ‘We knew we wanted a garden party type feel to our wedding and loved the idea of having a tipi and so needed to find the space to accommodate that. We originally found a venue that offered us the space that we desired with some amazing views thrown in but unfortunately with just 6 weeks to go the venue were forced to cancel leaving us in a difficult situation. Sami Tipi were amazing and offered us a few suggestions of possible pieces of land and we contacted the wonderful Alison and Rob at Loadbrook Cottages Bed & Breakfast who couldn’t have been kinder in offering us their land. Weddings are not something that they do so we were so grateful that they were willing to let us use their land. With 4 weeks to go we were granted a temporary events licence for Loadbrook and it was all systems go. Alison and Rob did all that they could to accommodate our already made plans and dreams giving us access to a number of their fields and surrounding space. In the end, our venue couldn’t have been more perfect, it was meant to be and totally surpassed every expectation that we had. Thank goodness for that cancellation! And we now have a beautiful B&B owned by a lovely couple who we would have never had known otherwise, to return to for anniversaries to come. We had 140 guests including 35 children and it took 10 months to plan.
It’s Monday afternoon, which means I have another fabulous DIY Tutorial for you. This time the tutorial comes from Imogen at Wedding Rings Direct and she has put together a rather wonderful save the date, in the form fo this ribbon garland. I’m sure you will agree this save the date would be greatly received by your future guest, and I’m sure you would have loads of fun making them!
I’ll pass you over to Imogen……..
This Save-The-Date Ribbon is both unique and charming and is also really fun and easy to make. It’s a little time-consuming but once you get the hang of it you could do most of it in the evening whilst relaxing in front of the TV. If you’re planning a quirky, handmade wedding then these will be perfect for giving your guests a sneaky peak of what’s in store.
Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another fabulous week here at Boho Weddings! I have a jam-packed week full of amazing real weddings and wonderful wedding inspiration. I’m sure you are going to enjoy. How was your weekend? Mine was good, pretty festive and full of family fun! What about you?
We kick the week off in style with this fabulous festival wedding that took place in Scotland over the summer. A wonderful outdoor ceremony with a totally relaxed and chilled out wedding reception. No table plan, instead a gorgeous array of finger and BBQ food set in a picnic style, with speeches outside. Kirsten and Gary took on lots of DIY projects for this weekend long wedding and it has been captured perfectly by the wonderful Zoe Campbell.
‘It was like a giant garden party BBQ, laid back with little formality. Our wedding was known as Wedstock 2014 – we wanted the feel of a festival’
Gary and Kirsten were married on 21st June 2014 at High Wards House, Wards Estate, Gartocharn (near Loch Lomond) Scotland. ‘We were looking for a holiday home rather than a venue, something that was big enough to hold both of our families from Thursday to Monday. We wanted a wedding weekend – not just one day! We chose High Wards because of it’s impressive gardens (that were more like fields!) and beautiful interior, not to mention the heated swimming pool. It also had tennis courts, trampolines and a kids play park on the grounds for our guests to use before, during and after our wedding day..on the invite we encouraged them to be casual or bring a change of clothes! 160 guests were invited to the full day. We didn’t have separate evening guests and it took 10 months to plan
Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all today? what have you got planned, are you staying in and relaxing or out and about getting into the festive spirit? This week has been a good one, Wednesday I went of to Chatsworth Christmas market, which was busy, muddy and eventful! I ended up buying plenty of cake and getting a flat tire, but managed to get home eventually! Today we are off for more festive fun and going into Sheffield City centre to watch the Christmas lights being switched on. We have some shopping to get and hopefully meeting up with some friends, as well as getting a bite to eat, so a fun day ahead. I am so excited for Christmas this year, I know Dexter is just going to love it! He may be a bit young to understand it all, but he loves pretty lights so I intend to decorate the house like santa’s grotto! We are also about to start the weaning process this week, so off to buy plastic spoons, cups, plates and bibs. If any of you experienced parents out there have any hints and tip do pass them on!
For now though it’s time to get comfortable and enjoy this weeks best bits, my weekly does of the best the wedding world has to offer!

Hello everyone and happy weekend to you all. Kelly C here. I hope you have all had a lovely week. Have you seen the weather forecast for next week? Now, I am not sure if it is true or not but predictions are saying the weather could get as low as -7 degrees! We haven’t had cold weather like this in such a long time. It has spurred me onto buying a new hat and gloves ready for it.
I hope you all have some great plans for this weekend. I have had such a busy week in wedding land so today I am heading off into Leeds with Paul to the Christmas Markets to catch up with one of our lovely couples whose wedding we shot back in July. I am so looking forward to it because I absolutely LOVE Christmas. It will be my first mulled wine if the year too! I will make sure I take loads of pictures and I will put them on Instagram. If you want to check them out I will be using the hashtag #bohokellyc
Today I am pleased to share with you this lovely engagement shoot which took place back in April at The National Museum of Flight. How fantastic to have a shoot in this place. It’s so different and the images look great! A big thank you to Mack Photography for sharing these images with us today.
‘We wanted something a little different but that was 100% us! The Museum of Flight was the perfect choice!’
How they met
We met when we were both working in Kabul, Afghanistan 4 years ago.
Louis proposed at Beecraigs Country Park next to the loch. It’s always been our favourite place to walk the dog. It was just the two of us there on a beautiful morning, I burst out crying and laughing all at the same time when he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring! He’d managed to keep the whole thing a surprise I was very impressed.
The one thing you love about each other
I love that Louis can always make me laugh, no matter how grumpy I am! Louis loves my pancakes! (more…)
