Happy Thursday everyone! How are you today? Yesterday and today may be quite a significant...
This week, as you may have realised by now, I am celebrating all things Halloween. Halloween is a BIG holiday in our house. It’s Nik’s favourite holiday, so I tend to milk the celebrations as much as I can. So if you are a lover of all things dark and gothic I hope you are enjoying this weeks offerings. As well as featuring some amazing styled shoots, I thought I would share with you the best Halloween wedding inspiration featured on the blog over the past year or two. Halloween is a time for the wedding industry to get really creative, to throw out the rule books and get their creative juices flowing. Think black wedding dresses, smoke, cobwebs, pumpkins, candles, amazing cakes, over the top flower displays, lots of deep reds, pinks and oranges. So this weeks Boho Pins is dedicated to all things Halloween I hope you enjoy my selection.
Today I have a day off, woo hoo! I am out for the day with Dexter picking pumpkins, enjoying some Halloween fun and hoping that it stops raining at some point! Nik is off as well so the 3 of us are out tomorrow. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween festivities so far this year, totally gutted that we can’t trick or treat as normal but we are trying to make it as special as possible this year despite the many restrictions we are living under! So on with today’s styled shoot. This one is a very subtle nod towards Halloween, as it is more gothic and industrial than full on Halloween. The shoot took place in February last year in Columbus, Ohio at Dock 580 which has unfortunately now closed due to the effects of Covid on the events industry. The shoot is a stylish mix of moody industrial and vintage, with accents of cranberry and lots of black. So far this week we have really seen a great mixture of black wedding dresses, showing that it doesn’t just have to be about the classic white wedding dress, Black wedding dresses are super stylish, modern and oh so chic. Big thanks to Kaila Sarene Photography and her team of first class suppliers who put the shoot together.
Well done, you have reached the halfway point of the week, how has your Halloween week been so far? It’s my last day in the office today, as I am off tomorrow and Friday, making the most of the half term break and hoping that the rain stops! It’s been relentless here in Sheffield, its causing havoc with our Halloween decorations! I do hope it stops soon. To carry on the Halloween celebrations I have another fabulous and super stylish shoot for you, full of Halloween inspiration. The shoot took place in September at Shade Rock Farms in Ottawa Lake, Michigan and was put together by Viridian Ivy Images and a team of super talented suppliers. The shoot is a mixture of dreamy and elegant detailing with dark and moody decor, resulting in an elegant and stylish wedding. I’m sure you are going to love it.
This afternoon I have another beautiful styled shoot for you. All this week I am featuring styled shoots with a autumn/Halloween theme, todays is a very subtle but it really is a beauty. The shoot took place last month in Hiddenite, in North Carolina at Mill Creek Farm it features the most gorgeous couple, who were married last year. The first thing I loved about this shoot was the brides outfit. The modern two piece looks stunning, the black velvet top, mixed with the metallic copper skirt is just sublime! Then the gorgeous colours, the deep tones mixed with the bright accents, really highlight how the summer months have ended and that autumn has arrived. A simple, elegant yet modern shoot showcasing that autumn really can be as beautiful a month to get married in as Summer.
I get sent a lot of wedding related ‘stuff’ in this job. Some I have seen a million times before, whilst others are more unique. Today I would like to introduce you to Dapper & Bride a truly unique idea that I absolutely love! Dapper and Bride is a personalised wedding magazine created just for you.
