DIY Desert Vibes with a Boho Eclectic Twist

Karen and Monty originally wanted to have a destination wedding in Big Bend National Park, however in the end they decided the location would make everything too complicated and stressful. Instead, they bought the desert vibes to Fort Worth! They had elements of the desert with terracotta vases, leather and cacti and added a boho twist.

“The beginning inspiration was the colours of the high desert in far west Texas in the Big Bend area”, Karen told us. “We also wanted to use local vendors that we went to a lot like Salsa Limon and El Fenix for our dinner and dessert. From there, we chose things that had meaning to us or that we both liked and it all came together.”

Spanish Bohemian Inspired Wedding in Mexico

Justin and Andrea used their venue, Los Tamarindos in San Jose del Cabo, as the main inspiration for their 2019 wedding. The location already had tipis all around the property, which they loved, so they took that idea and ran with it.

“It really felt like an authentic Mexican Hacienda”, the bride told us. “We wanted the wedding to feel authentic to Mexican culture. We spend a lot of time in Cabo with our family and friends. We really love the food, drinks, music, language and how friendly the people are. We tried to really incorporate that.”

“The venue was an authentic farm to table restaurant located on a farm that dates back to the 19th century. We had Palomas, a worm salt tequila shot bar and we skipped the traditional cake to have Panna Cotta, a churro cart as well as Paletas.”

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.”
