Happy Wednesday everyone. How are you all? As we reach the mid-point of the week I have the most gorgeous wedding to share with you. Anna and Ilaria are our two beautiful brides, who decided to get married in Italy, close to their home town and a place that Anna used to visit as a child. This exquisite palace makes such a breathtaking venue for a wedding, filled with the most amazing backdrop and perfect for a grand yet laid back outdoor reception. I love their sense of style, their use of colour, the cactus favours, the handmade dreamcatchers, the smoke bombs and the 2 gorgeous outfits. What an amazing wedding. Big thanks to Laura Stramacchia for sharing the images with us.
Anna and Ilaria were married on 14th September at Palazzo della Loggia, Brescia Palazzo Barbò, Torre Pallavicina in the Italian region of Lombardy. ‘We were looking for a place not too far from our hometown, Brescia, and possibly close to our families too. We wanted a place reflecting our love for nature and our idea of simplicity and we decided to visit Palazzo Barbò, a 15th century palace in the middle of the countryside. Anna immediately fell in love with the venue, a wonderful place full of history and magic. Moreover Palazzo Barbò was part of Ilaria’s childhood memories. She used to cycle there with her dad and her brother as a child. We knew it was the right place the moment we saw it. We had 110 guests and it took about 5 months to plan. Anna proposed on April the 5th and Ilaria started planning the wedding the day after.’
Your Wedding Make Up is going to be an important part of your big day, getting the right MUA (Make Up Artist) booked is an important part of your wedding planning. BUT what makes an MUA the right person for YOU and YOUR wedding? What look are you going for? Do you normally wear a lot of make up or are you more of a natural kind of bride (or groom). Will you need a trial? What sort of questions do you need to ask? There are many things to consider, but fear not, as today we have expert Wedding Artist Victoria Northbrooke on the blog to guide you on the right path. Victoria has just launched her own Podcast Beauty & The Bride. She says ‘It is a new series dedicated to protecting brides from overdone Youtube style makeup, heavy ‘insta-brows’ and badly made hair extensions. She says ‘Beauty & The Bride guides discerning brides through the beauty jungle to ensure they look effortlessly stunning when they say, “I Do”.’ Victoria is on hand to offer her expert advice so feel free to leave her a comment if you have any further questions for her.
The secret to booking the best wedding makeup artist is to treat it like an interview. You need to do your homework and ask the right questions, so you can book the best professional for you. Typing in ‘best wedding makeup artist’ in Google is no guarantee that you’ll find the best. You need to do some legwork.
Search for makeup artists in your area but be prepared to also go further afield if you don’t find a local artist that excites you. Read forums, check testimonials and ask your friends and family for recommendations.

Kristen and Garrett’s wedding day was perfect. The ceremony was held at St Anne’s cathedral and the Reception was held at Eastern Market Corporation. Their dogs and Sparty (Michigan States mascot) made an appearance at the reception just in time to congratulate them! The reception venue looks absolutely amazing, huge flower arrangements add a modern look to this stunning warehouse type venue and the rose gold detailing keep it looking super stylish. Pure wedding perfection!
Hello Monday and how are you all? I hope you had a good weekend and that you haven’t been affected too much by the terrible weather?! Roll on Summer is all I can say, I will be glad to see some sunshine! With Half term done and Dexter back at school, I am back to my normal working hours here at Boho HQ, so back with more wonderful weddings and amazing articles and advise for you all. Do feel free to drop me a line if you have a question for me. Today we head to Sussex as it’s the turn of Lucy and Lewis and their gorgeous barn wedding, filled with copper details and lots of homemade projects. They created most of the decoration themselves, the whole day is filled with personal elements. Lewis is a plumber, so they had a fun take on this and created the copper pipe candelabras that adorned each table, as well as the copper pipe bar sign. So clever! Anna Marie Stepney was there to capture the day in all it’s glory.
Lucy and Lewis were married on 31st August 2019 at The Yoghurt Rooms, East Grinstead in Sussex. ‘It was so unique and only holds a maximum of 15 weddings a year, we also knew we wouldn’t find another venue where all out friends would be able to stay with us and there was a rave room for the after party! There was lots of accommodation on sight including yurts and all the animals too! Wwe had 90 guests and it took 15 months to plan.’
