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.

Eclectic & Modern Bohemian Wedding

Sara and Thom made their family and friends the focus for their summer wedding; they wanted to create a comfortable space for everyone to hang out, get to know each other, have good food and just enjoy themselves. Most of their friends and family were travelling out of state to join them in their celebrations, so they wanted to make it kid friendly so everyone could relax together, too.

Aesthetically, they didn’t really have a theme, but they wanted their personal styles to be reflected in their decor. “We wanted sort of an eclectic vintage boho modern vibe without looking too trendy,” said Sara.  “But I have to admit we didn’t need to do much because our venue was already perfect. I mean – open air chapel built with antique doors found in Paris, overlooking a pasture where horses are galloping by during the ceremony? We didn’t need a theme!”

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.

Bright & Bold, Bohemian Backyard Wedding

Finding a lot of inspiration for their wedding on Pinterest but working closely with wedding stylist Kristal Childs to bring their ideas to life, Ashleigh and Jacob hosted their their bright and colourful meets boho wedding at the bride’s parent’s lakeside home. The backyard was dressed with an eclectic mix of seating surrounding the pool and they even had a help yourself drinks cart to welcomed guests to start celebrating as soon as they arrived.

“We really didn’t want anything traditional”, began the bride”, so we opted out of cake and had our favourite desserts instead. Our officiant and our band are both good friends of ours and the groom handpicked all the ceremony music. We wanted it to be as ‘us’ as possible.”

Their dream outdoor ceremony almost didn’t happen as it rained most of the afternoon. However having it later in the day meant the sky luckily cleared just in time! “As soon as the ceremony started the clouds parted and unplanned birds flew overhead. We forgot the rings, so we pretended to do that bit! I would say the ceremony was a little bit of a hot-mess, but it totally fit us. We laughed the entire time. It was beautiful to be surrounded by our loved ones.”
