Boho Loves: MiaDonna – ‘The Greener Diamond’ Conflict-free, Beautiful, Ethical and Affordable Diamonds

Diamonds are beautiful, there is no denying that, but do you always know where your diamonds are coming from? Now I have to admit this isn’t something I gave much thought to back when I was looking at engagement rings, however now I know more about diamond mining and the harm it can do it’s certainly something I would think about for any future diamond jewellery purchases. MiaDonna is a company I would definitely look at buying diamonds from, as they are conflict free, Eco friendly  and Support The Greener Diamond charity. Anna-Mieke the founder of the company set MiaDonna up to try and give something back to the diamond industry and offer a new alternative ‘to offer consumers beautiful, ethical and affordable fine lab-grown diamond jewellery that would help free innocent children oppressed by the active conflict diamond mining industry.’ The diamonds are beautifully cut and a fraction of the price of a mined diamond, plus you can wear them with a clear conscious.

If you’re looking for lab-grown diamonds, engagement rings, or fine bridal jewellery, look no further than MiaDonna. Handcrafted in the U.S. using recycled precious metals, lab-grown gemstones, and lab-grown diamonds, their fine jewellery is guaranteed conflict-free, crafted without negatively impacting native communities or our environment. MiaDonna is a foundation-first company and proudly gives back a minimum of 10% of their net profits from every purchase to their charity foundation, The Greener Diamond. These funds help to build educational, mentorship, agricultural, and urgent relief programs in diamond mining communities in countries such as Liberia and Sierra Leone, Africa. Book an appointment to visit their Portland, Oregon showroom or shop online anytime on MiaDonna.com

Willow and Tate’s ‘Under Canvas’ Free Spirited With a Dash of Rock and Roll Elopement by Taylor Made Photography

I have something rather special for you today in the form of this rather gorgeous elopement with added honeymoon night pictures. Willow and Tate are a free spirited couple who love the outdoors and knew they wanted something different for their wedding day. They decided on a chilled desert elopement, complete with hanging macramé, crystals and a beautiful drip cake. The elopement took place on 29th September 2018 in Utah at the gorgeous Under Canvas Zion. The couple had a super personal ceremony, followed by fizz and cake and then an intimate shoot in their honeymoon suite. Such a stunning day captured beautifully by Taylor Made Photography LLC.

Willow and Tate are a modern love story. Bonding over their love of adventure and the outdoors, they knew they wanted something unusual for their elopement. One of their first adventures was a weekend in Zion, so it was only natural that they would return to celebrate their forever.
Taking place at Under Canvas Zion, their elopement was elevated from traditional camping, but still close to nature. Their tent had everything a new couple would need, including a window panel above the bed to stargaze on their first night together.

Carly and Pete’s Boho Beach Wedding on the Cornish Coast by Johnny Dent Photography

Today I am taking you off to one of my favourite places in the world, Cornwall. I spent my childhood years growing up in Cornwall, and even though I left when I was 18 to move ‘up North’ it still has a very special place in my heart, which is why I love featuring weddings from Cornwall so much. Today’s wedding features one of the most gorgeous Cornish wedding venues, Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay. A stunning beach side venue with the most amazing views and terrific backdrop for photos. Carly and Pete have done an amazing job of making this wedding super pretty, with just the right balance of DIY projects to keep it personal, while bringing in the best suppliers to make sure it all runs smoothly. Johnny Dent Photography was there to capture the day for us in style.

‘Best Day Ever – Bl**dy Brilliant!’

Carly and Pete were married on 25th May 2018 (and Pete’s 35th Birthday – double celebration and a date he will never now forget) The ceremony was held at Church: St Paul – Ludgvan with the reception at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. ‘Pete’s mum was a vicar at St Paul (and sadly passed away 3 months before we got together), and so there was no question as to where we wanted our ceremony to be (albeit it ever so bittersweet on the day). Lusty was a no-brainer for us, we wanted to have a big party by the beach and Lusty gave us the laid back, boho wedding we were looking for! Plus a pizza oven! Who doesn’t want pizzas on their big day?! We ha 100 ish guests and it took 1 year and 3 months to plan.’

Rita and Joey’s Laid Back and Stylish City Winery Wedding in Brooklyn by Everly Studios

Happy Monday, and here we are again at the start of another wonderful week. How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful. I took Friday afternoon off to treat myself to a make up shop, so the weekend started early. I then went out with Nik and some friends to see Rhod Gilbert which was a fab night. Saturday I worked and yesterday we all went to see Marvel Universe, which was excellent. Dexter LOVED it! So a fun packed weekend. Today we start the week with a trip to New York for the wedding of Rita and Joey who were married on 4th July in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Winery. The whole day is super stylish, the couple look great together and the venue is just a wonderful backdrop to a cool laid back wedding. I love all the flowers and how they work against the wood of the venue. Everly Studios was there to capture the day perfectly for us.

Jocelyn from Everly Studios tells us more about the day.

DIY Tutorial: Photo Display in Embroidery Hoops

I haven’t shared a DIY with you for quite a while now, so when I was sent this gorgeous and pretty simple Photo Display idea I knew it would be the perfect DIY tutorial to share with you. I am seeing more and more photo display walls at weddings, so this wooden embroidery hoop idea is the perfect way to incorporate this fab trend into your wedding day. You can decorate it with flowers or with anything that goes along with your wedding theme. You could paint them to match your colour scheme or leave them minimal, it’s totally up to you.

DIY Tutorial: Photo Display in Embroidery Hoops

Liya Bulanov from APK Bridal is here to tell us how to make these super cute photo hoops. 

As the age of ‘do-it-yourself’ all of us crafty people rejoice. Not only does this popular trend save us money, but it also gives us the ability to express ourselves creatively and work with our hands.

Something fun that always brings a personal element to any wedding decor is a wall or area for a photo display. The variety of how photo walls are made is vast, so the direction you can take for hanging photos on your wedding are endless.

One fun idea is using embroidery hoops of different sizes to hang on a wall at your wedding. It is a sweet and creative way to highlight your picture so that when guests wander through they can stop and admire all the special moments you wish to remember forever.

Displaying pictures in hoops is an easy project that isn’t super tedious and time consuming. It can be done in one evening. The end result is super cute and you can really add your own spin to it.

The materials you will need are:

  • Wooden embroidery hoops 6’ 9’ 12’
  • White ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Poloroid photos
  • String (to hang it at the end)
  • Tie wire (to hold florals)
  • Florals
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue Dots (to hold the photos)
