Rustic Bohemian Wedding in London

Rustic bohemian urban wedding (17)

Ben and Lori’s London wedding was held in a coffee shop. They had a laid back, bohemian theme that worked really well with their urban location.

“I suppose the most unique part of our wedding, that sets us apart from most weddings we have been to, is that we did not have the same sense of formality”, explained the bride. There were no bridesmaids, or groomsmen for example. We didn’t feel attached to those traditions. Also, we Skyped in some of my family members and closest friends from Canada, so it was a little funny seeing an iPad in the corner of our eye with six tiny squares of my favourite people from overseas, smiling and crying from a screen.”

“I would say our theme was confused rustic bohemian. The best bit of the day, and the part that still gives me the most exciting rush of emotions, is our ceremony. Our venue had stairs that led from a loft down to the main area where we had set up our ceremony area. Before most people arrived, close friends all worked together to decorate; hanging the ribbon backdrop, laying out confetti bags, and clearing the area. It was a bit rushed, but so lovely for everyone to work together like that. Ben worked some magic on the music and used the instrumental from LCD Soundsystem’s Dance Yourself Clean for us to walk down the stairs together to and it was absolutely wonderful. I love that we walked together. For us, it was important to show the unity between us before we were married, as well as the further commitment we made on that day.”

Bohemian Folk Wedding in Brazil

Juliana and Fabio’s wedding was held at Mansão Atrium in Brazil. Their bohemian and folk themed day was actually completely inspired by a wedding they saw on Instagram!

“Our idea was  to make things as simple as possible”, said the bride. “We didn’t want our wedding to have a luxurious or classical feel. We wanted everyone to be themselves. Aesthetically our wedding may seem pretty similar to others, but in Brazil it was a very big challenge to have an organic simple wedding. We wanted it to feel like a big family dinner or a weekend camping.”

The ceremony was held outdoors. “The pastor who officiated our ceremony is a personal friend of the groom which made made it much more personal. The words he used were kind and gave a special touch and fun to the ceremony. I would advise other couples to have someone they know conduct their ceremony. If they know you and your history it will make it so much more meaningful”.

Chelsea and Joe’s wedding took place at The Lake, White Colne, Essex. They  hired a marquee and set up the wedding themselves in a field. The day had a bohemian, shabby chic and rustic vibe with lots oh homemade touches.

“The day started with a laid back humanist ceremony which focused on our love for each other”, said the bride. “We also wrote our own vows.”

“Most of the décor was DIY including the bunting, the centrepieces, the jars, postbox, guest book, table runners, name cards and wooden signs. We even made one of the bars. I loved being creative by making everything in the run up to the big day.”

Kirsty and Mike were married on Friday 31st July at Barmbyfields Barn in York. They chose that date because it was a Blue Moon (the 2nd full moon in a month which only happens every three years) which is said to be a very powerful and magical time to get married.

“Our wedding theme evolved as we went along, but I guess you could describe it as boho hippie goes to a metal gig!”, the bride began. “It was a very eclectic mix of ideas from ourselves and our children. We collected things and recycled stuff and we kind of wanted the barn to feel like our house rather than a wedding. We even took a fireplace there and set up some logs and some trinkets and we hung a picture of My Dad it. We set our head table in front of the fireplace and we brought our own chairs from home to sit on.”

Danielle and Darren were set up on a blind date. Their wedding was inspired by a trip to Tunisia and their love of travel in general. They were also influenced by Glastonbury and their family, friends and children.

The wedding was held at The Keeper and the Dell, a unique outdoor wedding venue in Norfolk. The ceremony was held outside. “We stood outside the marquee, with the beautiful wooden dressing screen for the backdrop”, the bride explained.  “The sun shone so brightly and our sons held the rings. Darren’s father officiated the ceremony. I loved coming down the aisle with my nine bridesmaids.”

“Some of our favourite details were the buddha heads, the scent sticks and the fact that we had no table plan or set menus. We had bell tents and colourful fabrics lining the marquee, large rugs and mosaic dishes. We covered some old bus seats from a car boot sale which were bought for £3 for the guests to sit on. We were all in bohemian dresses with bare feet, tipsy dancing, non-stop smiling and laughing.”

Southwest-Meets-Midwest Outdoor Wedding

Hip Southwest-Meets-Midwest Outdoor Wedding (18)

High school sweethearts don’t always go the distance, but Tori and Dillon bucked that trend. They met during sophomore year and have been together ever since. They wanted a wedding that felt like them, and they didn’t care about being too specific about colours and trends.

“Neither Dillon or I are big on dancing so I think something a bit alternative about our wedding was that our reception didn’t focus on dancing as the sole entertainment”, Tori said. “Our venue had a huge property so we were able to have yard games as a dancing alternative. My sister and brother-in-law made us a custom Jenga set, we had ring toss, as well as sets of corn hole.”
