Rustic, Bohemian & Music-Filled Wedding

Amy and John wanted to be married outside and for their wedding to have a bohemian and rustic vibe. Both being massive music lovers, that was also always going to be a big part of the celebrations. They had a rock and blues band (who are all their friends) as their entertainment and the bride sang with them in the evening too!

“We met 11 years ago working at the same hospital”, began Amy. “We dated for a few months but decided to just remain friends. We stayed in contact over the years and then in 2014 we got back together and five months later we got engaged. Despite our years apart with always knew we’d end up together… And so did our friends and family!”

The day was held at Lemore Manor in Herefordshire.  “We didn’t want a traditional wedding in a church or indoors so when we found our venue we fell in love with being able to get married outside underneath the bandstand and for all our guests to be seated on hay bales. We also didn’t want a standard wedding band, so we had a rock and blues band play for us who just so happened to be our family friends. I guess what made it more unique is that I’d sang with the band before and I was able to sing with them on our wedding day. Most of the music played throughout the day was rock, blues and acoustic.”

Bohemian Glamping Wedding in Wales

Sally and James’ first meeting was unusual to say the least! “James sent a text to an old work colleague seeing if he fancied a catch up”, said Sally. “Unbeknown to James his friend had recently got a new phone and no longer had that number. 250 miles away I had just got a new phone and the network provider had reused the number. I received a random text asking to meet up and I jokingly replied! 11 years, 3 kids and a mortgage later we finally got married! Coincidence or fate!?”

Their summer wedding took place at Fforest in Wales and was inspired by the surroundings and the venue itself. “Because of its location and its uniqueness we just went with what fitted with the venue”, she continued, “so that meant rustic, woodland, glamping and bohemian! We always wanted a weekend wedding as we were bringing our family and friends from opposite ends of the country. We also wanted somewhere where our guests could all stay in the same place and get to know each other a bit better. It took over a year to find Fforest but when we did we knew it was right.”

Madi and Joshua’s wedding took place just as a hurricane was hitting Louisiana. But if anything, the dramatic weather made their day much more memorable. “Our wedding date happened to land right smack bang in the middle of a category five hurricane, that touched down in Mexico and brought heavy, constant rain and winds on our wedding day”, said Madi. “We were having an outdoor wedding, and had no plans to move to another venue! So we just.. got wet.”

“Still, even without the storm, I think our wedding was far from typical. It wasn’t a religious ceremony, although it had a very spiritual feel and look. My bridesmaids and I were barefoot with beaded jewellery strung around our feet. We played almost entirely 60s and 70s music, including Led Zeppelin. I walked down the aisle to May This Be Love by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Aside from our odd choice of a carrot wedding cake, we even had a whole table of southern style pies and cobblers, which was awesome, different.. and delicious.”

The couple’s favourite part of the day was their ceremony. “It was truly magical,” said Vita, “I think our wedding ceremony was the most emotional moment of my entire life! I don’t think there was ever a time when I felt so many emotions at once. It was wonderful, overwhelming and simply amazing. We had great musicians playing the music in the middle of the woods, I walked down the aisle to Once Upon a Dream from the Sleeping Beauty and it truly felt like a woodland fairy tale. The smell of the rose petal confetti was magical, my grandma had picked it herself from wild roses, and it felt magical to be showered in it!”

Kate and Graham had a rustic and boho inspired wedding in South Africa. They spent under £9000 on their dream wedding. “We really wanted a lot of greenery and ever since I was little have always dreamed of getting married in a forest”, said Kate. “We chose Cranford Country Lodge as our venue to incorporate all of that.”

“Our ceremony was lovely because it was so relaxed and informal”, she continued. “We live in London now and had only flown back to South Africa a week before, so we had never got a chance to chat to our pastor properly. But he surprised us with these lovely metaphors using some rope to symbolise our bond, and it definitely got the crowd laughing and made us feel very relaxed.”
