It’s been a pleasure…

Afternoon all,

I hope everyone’s having a good week so far! Today I wanted to share with you a little project I’ve been working on for months really – and in the last few weeks it’s has come to fruition. It’s a collaborative project alongside one of my oldest and dearest friends Amry, born from something we have in common and something that we’re both trying to master the skills of – Motherhood!

Not Keeping Mum is a blog written by mothers for mothers. You can read a bit more about it and what to expect from it here.

I find writing a very cathartic experience, more often than not, if I write my troubles down, or simply jot down a to do list for the day my head becomes a lot clearer. The same can be said for Boho Bride. Initially it was an outlet for my creative ideas and later developed into a place where I could muse and vent over wedding woes as the big day approached…Well I’m sure it’s pretty clear to all that since then and since the arrival of our little boy I’ve found the blog a struggle to keep up – not so much the blogging itself - but creating content that I believe readers will enjoy…that I also enjoy!

The standard of wedding blogs continue to reach new highs daily – and to be part of that world you have to be beyond devoted. You need to be willing to live and breathe it all and whilst I adore the styling aspect of weddings {the design details still make my heart flutter} I am no longer passionate about writing about them…

And so, with a heavy heart I’m announcing the inevitable. From the end of October Boho Bride will no longer be updated. The site with remain – with it’s backlog of posts – as I still run my wedding and event design service, but there will be no more new content posted. Throughout the next couple of weeks I will be publishing pretty – including real weddings, some fantastic venues and my favourite mood boards from the last 24 months.

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for your support and friendship throughout. If you’re a Mum or Mum-to-be and would like to follow Amry and my journeys – we’ll see you over at NKM!

With Love,

Sarah, Boho Bride xx

I was beyond excited to recieve an invite to the launch party of Rosie Parsons new Love Luxe Blog {I’ve mentioned on here before that it is THE place to be inspired when planning a celebration} as I knew, based on the impressive list of suppliers not only attending but partacking in the day, it was going to be one heck of a do!

With an array of styled tables and scenes spread across the beautiful Goldney Hall in Bristol – it was brimming with pretty and I left not only feeling full of tasty treats, but inspired to sink my teeth into as many creative projects as possible!

Here’s a few pictures highlighting the incredible standard of talent that was on show…

Morning all,

Well, it’s been a while!

The past eight weeks have been so busy but I have to admit I hadn’t realised how much time had past since I’d last updated the blog. This Summer has been one of incredible highs thanks to our little {near six month} addition…and waves of low, as my Dad continues to battle cancer. I’m afraid something had to give so I could focus on family and that ended up being Boho Bride. Apologies to all of those who’ve been wondering where promised features are…those said features are soon to follow!

For today’s feature I want to give a shout-out to a marvellous company Your Image on Canvas who kindly sent me a beautiful image of my baby boy which has taken pride of place in our office and serves as a daily reminder of how lucky myself and my hubby are!

{Original image by Lucy Shergold}

It arrived on our wedding anniversary {yup, one year wed now} and was the perfect gift to mark our special day. I’m quite fussy about displaying images in our home – anything going up on our walls needs to be in a simple, elegant frame…so I wasn’t sure if a canvas would cut it – but I am so pleased with the quality of our picture; the edges are very neat and the shades of black and white are deep and crisp. A big thank you to Pete at Your Image on Canvus is in order – be sure to check them out.

Coming up this week I’ve some stunning inspiration to post on the blog thanks to Rosie Parsons and the launch party of her Love Luxe Blog… and some gorgeous readers real weddings!

With Love, Sarah xx
