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.”

A Bohemian Tropical Wedding in Rio

Raissa and Tony wanted to incorporate all of the colour and fun of the bride’s home city into their bohemian inspired day. Married in September, the couple planned a day that was heavily influenced by Rio and their chosen venue.

“I was born and raised in Rio and it’s a super bohemian and tropical city”, Raissa told us. “I wanted the wedding to represent it. Also, Rio was the place Tony and I had our first date so It is an extremely important place to us.”

They chose Casa da Palma, located at in the Santa Teresa neighbourhood, as their venue as it was so beautiful and colourful in it’s own right – it suited their theme to a T! “It is a colonial house located in the middle of the trees with an amazing view to the city”, the bride continued. “I asked the florist to use tropical flowers and plants for the decoration.”

Music Festival Influenced Bohemian Wedding

Ted and Jenny met through friends in the summer of 2015, but it was the falling autumn, while travelling around the country to their first music festivals, that they really discovered the beauty in their friendship. Which is why, when they chose to marry in 2019, they opted for an October wedding with bohemian meets festival influences.

They pulled ideas for lighting and decorations from their favourite events – Eclectic Forest and Hulaween. Jenny has always had a hippie/bohemian sense of style so it was another natural path for them to go down; to their surprise and delight, many of their guests embraced the theme and showed up in stylish hats and pashmina scarves which helped create the atmosphere they were hoping for. Moreover, they wanted a day that wasn’t just about celebrating their love for one another, but one that honoured the love for all their friends and family, because without them, they wouldn’t be where they are today.
