Today we are talking jewellery with the lovey people at Benati. Benati is the brain...
Happy Friday everyone. I hope you have managed to get through the week OK? It’s fair to say that it’s been a pretty rubbish week in the world of weddings. On Tuesday we were struck with the news that weddings were restricted to 15 people only, meaning that many of you have had to make the tough decision whether to cut back your guest numbers again or postpone till next year. It’s so hard for everyone, couples and suppliers alike, I totally feel your pain! However, we stand strong and we will get through this. You will get married and your day will be magical, whether you decide to do it with just a few of you or you re-book for future times. Whatever decision you make, please believe that love will win in the end. So with that in mind let’s move onto todays wonderful industrial wedding from Bristol. Sally and George loved the exposed bricks and industrial vibe that the Paintworks event space gave them and they filled the venue with fairy lights, gin bottles and plenty of flowers. Ryan Goold Photography did a wonderful job of capturing the day for us, for what looks to be a fun filled, laid back day.
Sally and George were married on 28th September 2019 at the Paintworks event space in Bristol. ‘We loved the industrial look to the venue with exposed brick and metal work. It’s pretty local to where we live, making quick trips for planning purposes easy. We had 96 guests and it took 18 months from engagement (although we didn’t really do anything for the first 6 months apart from book the venue!)’
Elopements; something that used to be a bit of a rarity, but these days with all the Covid restrictions they are becoming BIG and very on trend. To be honest if I was planning my wedding this year with all the changes and all the different guidelines, I think I would probably have gone off and eloped by now. The thought of not having to worry about a guest list, all the family politics and just being able to please you and your partner after months of upheaval, Elopements seem more and more desirable in this current climate. So today I have this gorgeous elopement shoot for you to show you just how adorable eloping can be. The shoot took place on 14th June at Le Trayas, Le Var in France and was put together by Studio Balzac and a small team of talented suppliers. The couple Audrey and Riccardo were celebrating their first anniversary, what a gorgeous way to celebrate their love.
This morning I am taking you to sunny Glastonbury in Somerset. Our laid back couple, Tim and Abi, chose a relaxed day at Splotts Moor Farm, and filled their day with DIY details and home grown flowers. I love an outdoor ceremony as you may well know, so this traditional handfasting ceremony is a big thumbs up from me! They enjoyed a Ukulele band as well as a Ceilidh band. On top of this all of their, guests joined hands to dance around a maze straight after their ceremony. A really unique day, full of personal elements, all captured by Ian Jeffery.
Hello you lovely lot and how are you all doing? If you are reading this in the UK, then you will know that the laws changed once again yesterday allowing only 15 people at a wedding instead of 30. I hope you are all OK and dealing with this news the best you can. Maybe you have a wedding planned in the next few weeks or months? Are you looking at cutting the guest list? Are you moving your wedding to another date? I would love to hear your stories and help you with your planning. Why not check out the Boho Brides and Grooms Facebook page, where you are welcome to come in and chat and look for some helpful advice. Please don’t let this news ruin your day though. Your wedding can still go ahead, just in a slightly different way than you may have first imagined. So on with today’s wedding and it’s the turn of Megan and Jeff who were married at Pioneertown in California on 1st June 2019. The couple love music festivals, having met at Coachella with one of their first dates at Burning Man. They decided the California desert was the perfect location for their minimalistic, outdoor wedding. The day looks perfect against the backdrop of the California desert not far from the Joshua Tree, and has been captured beautifully by Sebastien Bicard Photography.

You probably spent months, maybe years, preparing for your dream wedding and shortlisting destinations for your honeymoon, only to be sorely disappointed by the COVID-19 pandemic. While the coronavirus has seriously disrupted international travel and tourism, it is not a reason to abandon your original wedding plan or put your honeymoon on hold forever.
We are hopeful for a healthier and brighter 2021, but there is no telling when leisure trips return to normal. Most likely, travelling would still be extremely limited. Imagine the dilemma if your wedding venue is located in one country while your honeymoon is in another.
Enter weddingmoons, the latest trend in nuptials vacation. A weddingmoon combines the traditional ceremony and the anticipated getaway, resulting in less planning, less travelling, less stress, and affords you more time to unwind before the special day. It is practical and cost-effective without being unromantic or tacky. Are you still worried about the aftereffects of the pandemic? We came up with a fundamental guide to help you plan your weddingmoon in 2021.
Have you ever dreamed of tying the knot at sunset on a picturesque cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea? How about exchanging vows on a hot air balloon while soaring above the stunning landscape of Cappadocia?
The pandemic might have postponed your wedding date, but it does not have to ruin your original plan of getting married abroad. Greece and Turkey are among the countries sought after by couples as a wedding venue not only for their romantic ambience but also for their variety of settings, charming traditions, and great food. The best thing about these places is that they double as a honeymoon destination. You do not have to travel anywhere else to bond as newlyweds.
With social distancing and mass gathering restrictions, it is almost impossible to have a big wedding. Consider downsizing your guest list to a small number of your closest friends and family. Limiting the number of invitees to your wedding may seem unfortunate but look at the bright side. Having the people who are truly dear to you on your special day will result in a more intimate and unforgettable experience, not to mention reduce expenses on guest count.
