Bohemian Earth-Toned Elopement at Home

Alba and Nico initially thought they’d have a big wedding, but when Covid scuppered those grand plans, and certain family members started being difficult, they decided to elope instead! They wanted their day to be intimate, special and just for the two of them.

They did, however, hire the fantastic Iman Dris Photos and Misma Órbita Films to document the day and Sra Dreams to help them plan it.

They got ready together, had their intimate ceremony and then ate their favourite food – pasta. Sounds like a dream to me! Style-wise they kept things simple, too. “We both agreed that the colours of our intimate wedding had to adapt to those of the nature of space: white, green and brown”, the bride said.

Botanical & Nature Themed South African Clifftop Winter Wedding

Julia and Jeran chose the remote, seaside village of Misty Cliffs, Cape Town, for their intimate winter wedding celebration. They found a house on Airbnb which they rented and included lots of creative, handmade touches. Their loved ones were involved in arranging flowers, making the food and cake as well as sharing special words for the couple during the ceremony.

Julia hand-embroidered her aqua top which her mum also wore on her own wedding day, and embellished Jeran’s purple shirt in brilliant green botanicals. Her skirt was made by a friend.

They wanted their wedding to be as far away from a cookie cutter, traditional day as possible. The bride explains, “We wanted to focus on the beauty of the natural world, without forgetting about the universe beyond our planet! Although maybe it’s more accurate to say we wanted a touch of the weird and otherworldly magical. The colour scheme of forest greens and mints and then violets was also a big part of the inspiration. I was very inspired particularly by those specific succulents that are green but also have hints of purples.”

Boho Meets Country Wedding on the Bride’s Family Farm

Alice and Tom’s wedding was so uniquely them! Married on Alice’s family property in Clare Valley, South Australia, they included nods to some of their geeky favourites, namely Dungeons and Dragons and the Princess Bride, as well as boho elements such as Alice’s Reclamation Designs dress, the black floral bridesmaid dresses (worn with boots) and the native Australian flowers in the bouquets.

“We used two things for inspiration”, Alice said, “the house and my hair. We wanted to have something that would fit in with the landscape around us and lots of native flowers. My hair hasn’t been a natural colour since before we met, so we needed to include pops of colour where we could too!”

A Relaxed Boho Summer Wedding

When the bride works in events, you KNOW her wedding is going to be flawlessly put together. Akilah was adamant she didn’t want a themed day (“even the word theme perturbs us a little!” she said) but she and Richard were naturally drawn to things that worked together, which was only solidified when they found their venue, The Barn at Bury Court in Farnham. They incorporated elements like candle and lots of flowers which created a low key, yet perfectly cohesive day.

“We didn’t have a theme as such but I knew I wanted to involve a lot of flowers and candles and the wedding venue and set up was perfect for that”, she explained. “The rest kind of fell into place. I begun spraying hundreds of jars in different metallic colours and then gave the florist free reign to do the rest. After meeting her I 100% trusted her to get it right and she did.”

Edgy Yet Elegant Wedding with hints of Boho and Edgar Allan Poe

Describing their wedding theme as ‘Poe-ho’ (Edgar Allan Poe meets boho), Morgan and Aristotle were married in February in Texas. The inspiration was dark and moody romantic with a hint of vintage flair. Almost all of the decor (the rugs, candlesticks, vases, lanterns, etc) were sourced from vintage and antique stores. The place cards were made by the bride and her cousin, Kathleen, from tile which they wrote everyone’s name on and Kathleen also painted the seating chart onto reclaimed windows.

“The best thing about our wedding was personalising everything!” Morgan began. “From the big, obvious stuff down to the tiny little details like the rose quartz pillars used as table numbers and using my great-grandmother’s ivory beads in my bouquet as my something old.”

Dreamy and Glamorous Boho Wedding

Megan and Mike wanted a glamorous boho theme, with a feeling of dreamy freedom and elements of a fairytale. They hired wedding planner AMV Weddings to help them bring together their theme and vision and also coordinate on the day.

Their favourite part of the day was their outdoor ceremony. Their florist, Desiree Dean Designs, made them a beautiful arch to get married under and the aisle was strewn with white rose petals. Flowers were one of their biggest expenses but they wanted both the ceremony and reception spaces to feel very lush and green.

“I remember standing at the start of the aisle, staring at Mike, and saying to my dad ‘is this seriously real life right now?'”, Megan said. “I felt like I was in a dream. Everyone we loved was at the same place and watching me marry the man I love. it was an insane feeling. We shared vows that made our ceremony super personal. I cried and we laughed, It couldn’t have been more perfect.”
