Emily & Michael’s Pre Wedding Shoot at Peggy Porschen Cakes. By Jacob & Pauline Photography


We don’t feature pre-wedding shoots very often here on Boho, but when we were sent this by Jacob & Pauline Photography, we instantly fell in love with it. The colours, the beautiful setting, the delicious cakes, that dress! I think you’ll agree that this is just gorgeous and the perfect way to end the week.

“A laid back Sunday afternoon in London, soaking in some coffee, cake and colour.”

Emily and Michael are getting married on the 26th September at St Mary’s Church in West Somerton with the reception at The Boathouse in Ormesby. We caught up with them at their pre-wedding shoot on the 18th May in Belgravia, London.

How they met
We met in a nightclub through a mutual friend and hit it off straight away. Michael was a DJ at the time and I was a bit of a bad girl, but now we’re both complete softies!

The proposal
It was early December 2012 and Michael had just come back from a boy’s weekend away. He wanted to put the Christmas decorations up early. If you know Michael, you’ll know that this is very unusual. We normally decorate the tree in the last few days before Christmas but he gave me the excuse that we never get to enjoy the decorations and so we should put them up earlier this year. I went along with it as it seemed like a good idea. We put the decorations up but I felt a bit silly as it was only just December and lost interest, spending most of the night on the phone to my Mum chatting about X-Factor.
The next day Michael dragged me to Paperchase to get yet more decorations! We put them up and then proceeded with one of my favourite traditions of doing photographs by the tree. He said there was one final decoration to go up got down one knee. I couldn’t think, let alone talk to say yes. I just cried!
Later I discovered that part of the boy’s weekend away was to choose the ring. The proposal was supposed to be on Christmas day but he was just so excited he couldn’t wait. So cute! We phoned everyone that we could straight away and celebrated with champagne. I just couldn’t believe that it was happening. We’d been together so long that I just didn’t think it was ever going to happen. I felt like I was on cloud nine that evening and it’s felt that way ever since. (more…)

Lyndsey & Ffion’s Relaxed, Multicultural Wedding. By Vickerstaff Photography


I love the relaxed, comfortable feeling I get from reading through today’s wedding between Lyndsey and Ffion. No pomp and ceremony, no faff, no wedding stuff for wedding’s sake. Just two women, obviously in love, surrounded by family and friends. The only rules, to wear Converse or trainers and have fun! Thanks to Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography for sharing this with us.

‘It was exactly what we wanted. It was chilled, comfortable and fun.’

Lyndsey and Ffion were married on the 21st June at the Llyn Gwynant Campsite, “We wanted a very chilled wedding in a barn which we could arrange. We didn’t want a package wedding. We wanted a rustic wedding which would reflect our personalities and make us feel comfortable! It was our day after all. We were engaged in Dec 2012. Lyndsey was superstitious so we were never going to get married in 2013.and being a ‘camping wedding weekend’, it needed to be in the summer. The long wait did mean that we got the perfect venue!”

Katy & Steven’s Navy Dorset Barn Wedding. By Helen Lisk


Today’s couple Katy & Steven, were childhood friends, turned sweethearts, who lost touch as most do, but then found each other on the wonderful worldwide web years later. Their wedding day, with images by Boho friend and regular contributor, Helen Lisk, was the perfect blend of sunshine, neon, cider tasting and miles of bunting. I also love their unique photo booth idea of cut out picture frames on a wallpapered wall. Very clever!

‘A perfect day filled with family and friends, sunshine, smiles, cider and swing.’

Katy and Steven were married on the 12th July at Tithe Barn in Symondsbury, Dorset. “It’s near where my Mum and Dad live and where I spent a lot of my childhood summers (Katy). And we loved that we could have the wedding and reception all in one place and in such a stunning barn (and that the family could all stay in cottages in the same village) and be in such a beautiful part of the country.”

Katie & Chris’ Vintage Inspired Rustic Wedding. By Funky Pixel


Five gorgeous little page boys with braces! Need I say any more? Quick, scroll down now, have a look and then come back to me…See I told you! I just love today’s wedding featuring Katie and Chris, sent into us by Funky Pixel. Accents of yellow, art deco influences and every type of taste in food catered for, from stripy bags of pretzels and nuts to nibble on between the church and the reception, to an ice-cream van for the sweeter toothed guest. Just perfect.

‘A family-filled wedding, full of laughter and love, with an absolutely incredible atmosphere. We were completely overwhelmed by the happiness our family & friends had for us, and how they helped make it such a memorable day.’

Katie and Chris were married on 14th June at Our Lady Star of the Sea church in Broadstairs and then Goss Hall in Ash, nr Canterbury, “We live in the quaint seaside town of Broadstairs and I always wanted to marry in a Catholic church. We relocated from Leeds where we met at university to Broadstairs for the seaside and surf (for Chris) and love it here. It’s about 30 minutes away from where I grew up, but it has become mine and Chris’ home as we started completely fresh here not knowing anyone.We chose Goss Hall after some intense ‘googling’. Knowing we wanted to marry in our local church, we were conscious of the distance people would need to travel between church and venue. Then I found Goss Hall! I never knew it was there, even after driving the same road to work for over a year! I looked on their website and saw in small print that there was space in the grounds for a marquee. It couldn’t have been better. There was a lake, ample space for the marquee and the kids to run around, and the B&B for immediate family and bridal prep.”

Boho Competition – Win a copy of 112 WEDDINGS A film by Doug Block


 

Win a copy of 112 WEDDINGS

Today I have a little treat for you in the form of a competition. Today I am offering TWO lucky readers the chance to win a copy each of the new wedding film, out in a weeks time; 112 Weddings‘.

112 WEDDINGS

A film by Doug Block   

Out on DVD  25th August 2014 

“Enormously Touching” **** The Daily Telegraph

‘For the past twenty years, Doug Block (The Kids Grow Up, 51 Birch Street), has supported his documentary filmmaking career with a side business of videotaping weddings. Now, as he approaches his own 25th wedding anniversary, Block uses the big event to take a broad and fascinating look at love and long-term marriage.  In his recognizable personal style of filmmaking he revisits some of his favourite wedding couples over the years, as well as experts and “advisors”, to explore what holds some marriages together and what drives others apart.’

112-3D-PACKSHOT-web (4)

You may or may not be aware of this film, when I first heard about it I thought it was another Four Weddings and a Funeral, no bad thing, but I was expecting a rom com/chick flick and instead I got a thought-provoking, intelligent look at marriage, the highs the lows and all the real life in-between.

The film brings up many questions about why we get married, what we expect from marriage and the actual reality of what marriage has done for some couples. I found it incredibly interesting and would recommend anyone to watch it.  (more…)
