Jennifer and Andrew’s Quirky DIY Autumn Wedding .By Sasha Mihalova

Happy Monday everyone, I do hope you all had a good weekend? Are you all ready for the week ahead? Have you got a busy one planned, or a more laid back week? It’s a week of getting things done at Boho HQ this week, starting the week as I mean to go on! To ease you into the week I have this gorgeous Autumn wedding from  Sasha Mihalova. Jennifer and Andrew held their quirky wedding just outside of Bristol and filled it with loads of DIY projects, including button bouquets and a gorgeous handmade wedding dress, made by Jennifer herself. This wedding is full of emotion and special moments, as well as loads of personality!

  ‘It was the best day of our lives, and we wouldn’t change anything about it. It was perfect.’
