Our Wedding Mood Board

September 14, 2011 by  
Filed under Boho Bride, mood boards, our wedding

Happy wednesday all! Me and the Mr are now at only 3 sleeps and counting and I can hardly believe it – things are getting very exciting!!! This morning I’m getting my roots done and am hoping to finish off all the diy bits and pieces that I’ve clearly left to the very last minute…

I digress, for todays is the day I finally post our own wedding mood board and it’s been the hardest one to create yet! I changed it so many times and actually scrapped the original…choosing instead to publish the board I put together on Pitnerest in a matter of seconds as I now figure it captures the essence of the day I hope to create; colour-tastic and full of pretty!

So there it is…and here’s hoping we can emulate the same sort of style caputed in this board, as all this colour gives me the warm and fuzzies!

With Love, Boho Bride xx

Our Wedding – 5 Days to Go!

September 12, 2011 by  
Filed under Boho Bride, our wedding

I know there’s been a bit of an absence of bother personal posts and inspiration of late; my apologies dear readers as things have been very manic. You see I’m actually getting spliced this Saturday and have been pulling in all the hours not only at my day job, but on the styling jobs I’ve also been doing….not to mention actual wedding plans! My candle has been well and truly burnt at both ends and I am so looking forward to 5.30pm Tuesday when I can finally fully embrace the gravitas of what this week has to offer…

For those of you reading who are in the midst of wedding plans and for those who might have already been through this experience, I thought I’d highlight a few of the things on my ‘to do’ list as well as note down some of the fluttering feelings that are passing through my head {and tummy} as the day ebbs ever closer…

♥ I am giving up the name that I’ve lived with for 29 years and whilst I’m happy to it also feels huge. A lot of my friends call me by my surname, even more so lately and whenever I hear it I have a little pang of upset that I’ll be letting it go….yet I also feel really ready to be Mrs C, and very proud as well. It’s a strange feeling – has anyone else had a similar experience?

♥ I keep getting break-outs of spots on my chin and now look like I’m in the midst of puberty…why? why? why?

♥ There’s no way I’ll be able to include every design detail I’d originally planned for our wedding – but I have prioritised those that we feel an affinity towards and I guess that’s what truly matters.

♥ Over the last few days, looking at my hubby-to-be, whether he’s sat at his desk or doing the dishes, fills my heart with a feeling of overwhelming happiness with the knowledge that we’ll be making life-long vows to each other in front of all those dear to us. It’s an incredible, indescribable feeling.

♥ The table plan needs to be…er planned.

♥ We booked a September wedding because we love autumn and were sure we’d have an ‘Indian summer’; we therefore planned nearly every element of the day to be outside….not sure things will go to plan and I’ve had to let go of those kind of expectations and adopt a ‘keep calm and carry on’ attitude. Once I acknowledged that I cannot control the elements - I started to sleep a lot easier…

♥ This is sure to be the most exciting time of our lives so far and we can’t wait to share it with our family and friends!

With Love, Boho Bride xx

P.S. Drop by on Wednesday when I’ll finally be publishing our own wedding inspiration board! xx

Offering stylish Brides gorgeous dress designs that are a little bit different and a lot uber pretty, Oh My Honey is another new sponsor of the blog. A range of fifties inspired frocks perfect for a modern wedding with a vintage edge, the Oh My Honey designs are feminine and flattering; ideal for a Bride who wants something sassy to wear for both herself of Bridesmaids, Louise offers a ready-to-wear collection and bespoke service…

Here’s what Louise has to say “I have always had an interest in fashion and costume, and love mixing the two together for exciting creations, or retro inspired designs. My dresses take the timeless 1950′s fashion elements and come together with modern or vintage fabrics to make fun, beautiful dresses for all kinds of occasions.

I pride myself on making beautifully made dresses and great customer care. All dresses are handmade in Brighton by myself or one of my skilled dressmakers. I aim to please so if you ever have any questions, or need help selecting a dress, don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

By complete coincidence, Louise approached me about sponsorship only a few days after one of my Bridesmaid’s had ordered a dress from her site and I have to say it’s a stunning frock and Louise went out of her way to make adjustments for us – I’m very proud to have Oh My Honey on board as a sponsor! If you’d like to learn more about Louise and her beautiful designs, be sure to visit the website

Natasha Jane is not only one of my new sponsor’s but one of the nicest and most supportive people I’ve met since joining the wedding world. Her beautiful crystal headpieces are not only the perfect accessories for both modern and vintage style weddings, but incredibly unique and beautifully designed.

“A romantic collection of both classic and modern bridal headbands for weddings or special events. Take a glimpse back in time to a collection of charming unique headbands; offering brides a touch of golden age glamour infused with striking design for the vintage styled bride choosing her perfect headwear.

Referencing organic silhouettes, playful chic bows and detailed beaded flowers, each headband can be altered to suit your style.”

I recently had the pleasure of styling a shoot using some of Natasha’s gorgeous collection and I have to say – her pieces are even more stunning up close. The attention to detail is immense!

Lucy Shergold Photography – Introducing Boho Bride’s Sponsors

September 5, 2011 by  
Filed under photographers, sponsors

This week I have the pleasure of introducing my new sponsors and first up is the hugely talented Lucy Shergold Photography. A devon based wedding photographer based in North Devon, Lucy Shergold specialises in a natural repotage style that’s unobtrusive and perfect for today’s Bride and Groom’s. Here’s what Lucy has to say…

“I have always taken photographs but when I photographed my first Wedding, I felt totally relaxed at home and inspired. Being part of your Wedding day is an amazing privilege for me. I love Weddings and get excited about everyone that I do.

I will capture your day in a relaxed and creative way, there will be time made for your special group shots. No one wants to be stood in a line up for hours so we don’t do that, but I understand that there will be family and friends at your Wedding that you want to remember, so we will make time for those shots and they will be done calmly and creatively.”

Lucy is not only someone who I’ve got to know very well since writing this blog – she happens to now be one of my closest friends and a true talent. So laid back and lovely, I can’t wait to have her capture my own wedding in two weeks time! Should you wish to learn more about Lucy and her beautiful work, make sure you take a look at her website.

With Love,

Boho Bride xx
