Dark Boho Vegan Wedding in Devon

Maxine and Josh wanted to include some traditional wedding elements in their day, in particular when it came to the ceremony, but they also wanted to ensure that it felt like them and reflected their own style. As the bride was on the liver transplant wait list for a long time and finally got her life-saving operation in October a few years ago, they also knew they wanted to get married around this time of year as it’s such a special time for them.

They went for a dark bohemian theme with decor including a mixture of of black glass, skulls, fairy lights, foliage and red roses. They didn’t go too overboard though, just wanting hints of things to suit the theme, They weren’t at all bothered about making it look ‘wedding-y’ either, they just wanted to pick things they really liked. “I love all the autumnal colours and we were always going to have a dark colour theme”, Maxine said.

Florist’s Beachy Boho Wedding in France

They met 14 years ago at a mutual friends house and were married last May in Gruissan, a village in the South of France on the coast of the Mediterranean sea. After a traditional church ceremony, led by the bride’s father who’s the deacon there, Camille and Chris hosted their reception at La Cambuse du Saunier, a local restaurant with a function room that they could decorate themselves.

Camille, a florist by trade, undertook most of the decorations herself. From the flowers to the table decorations and even the catering, this was a DIY wedding in all senses of the word. In fact, they did so much themselves that they only spent €5000.

Bohemian, Magical Forest Themed Wedding Inspired by Lord of the Rings

Margoe and Charlie were heavily inspired by their favourite books, Lord of the Rings, for the theme for their July 2019 wedding. They really wanted a dark, magical forest vibe for the day. Armed with a $50,000 budget, they employed Kim from Your Perfect Bridesmaid to help bring their vision to life.

Held at Skamania Lodge, a boutique hotel resort near Stevenson, Washington set in a gorge where swift waters meet evergreen forest, it was the perfect setting for their Lord of the Rings themed day. Their decor included books from their own collection adorning tables, antlers and skulls and tons of dark foliage to help accentuate their surroundings.

Patrón, Puppies and a Dip Dyed Dress

Sian and Neil’s wedding featured all the things they love: Tequila, their dogs and the importance they put on their relationship. With a groom that always said he never wanted to get married, when he finally surprised his bride and asked her to be his wife, they knew the only way they were going to do it was entirely on their own terms. That meant ignoring tradition wherever possible.

They were hitched in June at Bysshe Court Barn in Surrey, and because they had their legal register office ceremony a few days before, they had complete freedom when it came to the day. “At the legal wedding we just had my little brother and Neil’s sister as our two witnesses”, Sian explained. “It was very low key and we went for coffee afterwards. We didn’t recognise this as our wedding day, we did it so that it gave us the freedom to do our actual wedding day exactly how we wanted it. We didn’t have to follow any rules or tradition. Therefor we found a celebrant to perform our ceremony in front of all our friends and family on our big day.”

Ray of Light: Flower Child Meets Rock n Roll Soul

Israeli dress designer Shimrit creates vintage inspired wedding dresses through her brand Shimka. Now usually, we don’t publish many photo shoots that aren’t our own, but these images are so damn beautiful I think you’ve got to see them! I don’t think they need much explanation really… They’re just stunning and that straw hat and flower combo, I’m here for it!

The shoot took place at Golan Heights in Israel. Of her inspiration, Shimrit writes, “I really like travelling and wandering and wanted to create a non-conventional production of a flower child with a rock ‘n’ roll soul… just like my brides. I wanted an offbeat, free spirited couple, who enjoy nature and the simple things and wanted it to look very natural and in motion.”

Witchy Late Summer New Moon Wedding

Amber and Daniel had a September wedding inspired by the New Moon. “We had a New Moon wedding”, Amber said. “Originally we couldn’t nail down a date. I am really into the New Moon and the beginnings it brings and I kept being drawn to 9/9/2018, which happened to be the New Moon into Virgo (Dan’s astrological sign). Once we chose it, Dan’s parents told us that was his grandmother and grandfather’s wedding date! It was meant to be!”

Most of the decor came from their own home and they used their creativity on the wedding invitations. The bride even sourced vintage mineral and crystal stamps for them. “The theme was a little dramatic and a little bit boho. I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted – slightly moody, but still carefree. For the invitations we used the limited edition eclipse stamps.
