Natalie and Joe’s Earthy Nature Loving Rustic Wedding in West Virginia by Southern & Grace Photography
If you are a lover of the outdoors and all things nature then you are...
I am writing this post, with a very sore head, sore feet and feeling rather tired after last nights Bog Boozy Boho Christmas Bash!………..BUT I am a very happy lady as I really did enjoy myself last night.
I may be biased, but I think the party went really well, everyone seemed to be having a good time….there was drinking (and a lot of it!) The Blue Boho Cocktails went down a storm! there was eating, the candy buffet looked and tasted amazing, the venue looked amazing, with some great Christmas arrangements, and amazing lighting…there was fun in the photo booth…there were glow sticks, there was dancing……….and there were some amazing guests!
So todays post is really just a THANK YOU to everyone who made the effort and ventured out on what was, quite frankly a hideous night weather wise. I know a lot of people have a busy time in December and the world and his wife seems to be ill at the moment, so I really appreciate everyone who made the effort and ventured out to the party, some of you traveled a long way to get to it, so I really appreciate your efforts.
A selection fo the Photo Booth photos from Booth Revolution can be seen HERE ON FACEBOOK so get tagging if you can see yourself. The full set will be up on the blog next week, as will the full set of photos from the lovely Nicola Thompson, who was my official photographer for the night.
So for now I just wanted to thank everyone who made the night possible. Like any wedding or event, it’s the suppliers you work with that make the event possible, and in my experience working with suppliers I know and trust make my job so much easier! so today post is dedicated to them……..
(I have added in some of my own photos which I tool on my IPhone…..quite frankly they are rubbish! but they give you a bit of an idea what the night was like, i think it’s going to be a long time before I am let loose with a ‘proper’ camera!)
Thanks to my lovely helpers for the night Rachel and Pamela. Rachel has worked on a few weddings with me, and will be getting more involved with Boho in the new year……..she even managed to get her photo taken for the website!!
Nicola Thompson Photography – my fabulous roving photographer for the night
I’ve been photographing weddings for 7 years and I’ve enjoyed every last-minute of it. My life is one big creative picture, be that through the lens or on the pages of my albums and I love to share this creativity with my couples. People in love inspire me to take beautiful photos! I love telling a visual story that my couples can look back on and remember with the exact emotions they experienced that day. I’m a passionate business woman too, attempting to change the perception many have of wedding photographers by providing perfect customer service and only products that I really believe in. Take a look at my website where you can see the story of every recent wedding I’ve worked on and read the many comments my couples have left about their experience. Available for weddings anywhere in the UK and abroad 2012/13.

Booth Revolution – amazing photobooth, every party has to have one fo these!
As professional wedding photographers, we understood the need for fun and spontaneous pictures of people enjoying themselves, as well as the more traditional shots. The photo booth environment is perfect for this so the idea for Booth Revolution grew from there. On our quest to find the perfect booth we didn’t really like what we found. Most of them were quite ugly to look at and produced poor quality prints. We wanted a machine that would look stylish and pretty in a venue and create beautiful pictures too.
So we decided to design and build one ourselves and with the help of a local company, our Original Deluxe Booth was born. All of our booths feature studio quality lighting and professional SLR cameras and because we know what we’re doing, you won’t find any dark, blurry images here. Just pictures that are colourful, crisp and bright and make everyone look good!
We’re perfectionists in everything we do and believe it’s the little things and attention to detail that makes a difference. So we strive to offer the most stylish props and merchandise as well as uniquely styled backdrops that really make the pictures pop!

Hansley Beard- beautifully styled and amazing tasting Candy Buffet
I can provide just the glass jars of sweets, but I really like to go into greater detail, telling more of a story through the display, and designing something bespoke for my clients that will be unique to them. As I also hire out vintage props, china and glassware, I particularly specialise in using these in my designs.
I try to treat each section or each type of sweet or dessert with an equal amount of reverence. This way it always pays off when it’s all brought together. I try to theme the whole display using fabric and ribbons, beautiful papers and special finishing touches. I also give the table an appropriate decorative backdrop relating to the overall theme.
I find practically that offering people a mixture of treats works well too, so I work with other local suppliers and add cupcakes, biscuits or individual desserts like cake pops or biscuits and mousses or jellies in shot glasses. It’s also a great way of featuring your wedding cake, incorporating it into the overall table design.

Victoria Made – for the best cup cakes and biscuits ever!!
I launched Victoria Made full-time this year after 3 years making cakes on top of my other job as a fitness facility manager for a university (I had been a chef/catering manager before so not a strange leap!). I took this time to learn the trade and to develop my own style and explore different areas for inspiration. I am leaning towards very modern styles as another option against the more traditional cakes. I create cakes that are stand alone designs rather than those built around a wedding or theme as I feel always looking towards weddings doesn’t give enough inspiration to produce anything different I work alone, so from consultation right through to delivery I offer a very personal, bespoke service. I have no plans to expand, preferring to keep to a limited amount of orders so that I can devote as much time and creativity to each one as is possible, I would never want to get to the stage where I am ‘churning’ high volume out.I also produce other items such as cookie favours, cupcakes and other desserts with a nod to the rise of the desert table.
