‘Boho in the California Desert’ Dream Catchers, Geodes and Macrame Wedding Inspiration

Today I am taking you on an escape away from the rubbish July weather into the California desert with this Boho inspired styled shoot. The shoot took place at Apple Valley, in California last November. It was the brain child of Lori Phillips Photography and an amazing team of wedding suppliers. Everything about this shoot is filled with Boho goodness. From the sun kissed colour scheme of oranges and yellows, to the beautiful flower arrangements. The bell tent gives an intimate area full of luxury and opulence, while the flowered ceremony backdrop gives us a romantic backdrop to the perfect ceremony area. This shoot is just bursting with laid back vibes, gorgeous macrame dream catchers and the most stunning decoration. Perfect for any couple looking for an intimate wedding location with the most breathtaking backdrop.

Why the Staycation Honeymoon Might Not be the Worst for Newlyweds

2020 has to go down as the year of the cancelled plans. I don’t know about you but my diary has never been so empty, I think we all seemed to spend February and March cancelling everything! With weddings now going ahead, even if rather smaller than many would like, the question then falls to the Honeymoon. Will you go away? Will you risk getting on an aeroplane? Or will you save your honeymoon celebrations to later on in the year or till 2021? Many are choosing to stay at home. But are Staycations really that bad? A lot can be said for staying in the UK or the country you are from. Today I have invited Kiley Morrow onto the blog to give us all some pretty good reasons why a Staycation isn’t actually that bad.

Why the Staycation Honeymoon Might Not be the Worst for Newlyweds

I’ll pass you over to Kiley to tell you more

The current pandemic has forced everyone to buckle down and stay in their homes. While many have had to cancel their plans, some have decided to go through although certain improvisations had to be made to fit the situation. One of these events are weddings where couples have a ceremony in the presence of friends and family with the assistance of apps like Skype and Zoom.

It’s certainly a unique way to do it and it doesn’t take away the special-ness of the event. After that, couples then have to find creative ways to spend their honeymoon at home. If you’re one of those newlyweds that had to make such adjustments during this time, here are some reasons why a staycation honeymoon is not the end of the world.

Lewis and Gemma’s ‘Never Ending Party’ Bohemian Villa Wedding in Portugal by Ana Parker

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend? Mine was great, Dexter had his first sleep over at Nana’s house for months which left Nik and I with a free night. We went to our friends house for a socially distanced BBQ, which was great fun. Saturday day we went to an Alpaca farm with some friends and on Sunday we went on a walk with some other friends. Isn’t it lovely now we are allowed to see people again! I have the most wonderful wedding to share with you today. A perfectly laid back day filled with bohemian vibes, coupled with a massive party! Gemma and Lewis are the most gorgeous couple, you can tell that they just fit perfectly together. The whole day looks amazing, the bridesmaids in white, the beautiful Portuguese backdrop, the table linen, the flowers. Everything just works so perfectly! Now get me some sunshine!!! Big thanks to Ana Parker for the awesome images.

A never ending party with our favourite people, full of love, laughter, drinking and dancing.

Gemma and Lewis were married on 29th July, both the ceremony and reception were held at Qunita Albasol, Algarve, Portugal. ‘Lewis proposed to me in Australia while we were traveling in a camper van up the East Coast. It was so beautiful and sunny that we decided we wanted to get married somewhere warm and by the coast. Lewis’s parents live in Portugal and Lewis has been going to Portugal since he was young. We manged to find a beautiful Villa (Quinita Albasol) not far from where they live, which allowed you to host weddings. We didn’t want a fancy traditional wedding but one where we could have a big party with our friends and family and this villa suited us perfectly. We had 90 guests and it took just under a year to plan. Lewis proposed in June 2017 in Australia while we were travelling. We got back in August and started planning the wedding in September 2017 for the following summer.’

Stephanie and Neil were married on 27th April 2019 at Cissbury Barns in Worthing, West Sussex. ‘As soon as we saw the venue we loved it. The barns were so beautiful and it was surrounded by woodland. It also helped that it was very close to where we both grew up so made it ideal for family and friends, we had 110 guests. We booked the venue around 18 months in advance and then started the rest of the planning about 10 months before the big day.’
