A Whimsical, Vintage Inspired Shoot from Vintage Style Hire Wed, 03 Aug 2011 05:00:32 +0000

Today’s inspiration comes courtesy of  Hayley Ruth Photography and Kate Fletcher of Vintage Style Hire, which ”supplies brides, wedding planners, stylists and photographers with unique vintage props to give their weddings, events and photo shoots style and originality”. The shoot was put together by Kate to showcase how you could style your day using her vast collection of props. This is the first of a series of shoots and I think they are a wonderful source of inspiration for vintage loving Brides! It’s so useful to see how you can use items of furniture and accessories to make your day truly unique. And how stunning is that salmon chair…?!

I’m lucky enough to have Kate helping out on our wedding day, both in the capacity of on-the-day co-ordinator and as a fellow stylist – I can’t wait to raid her collection of goodies!  If you’d like to find out more about Kate Fletcher and Hayley Ruth’s services, I’ve listed details below.

A Rustic Provence Styled Shoot Thu, 28 Jul 2011 05:00:26 +0000

This is the kind of styled photoshoot that makes my heart ache…in the best possible way. Relaxed yet beautiful styling, inspired by natures palette, it proves that a wedding can be best dressed when a Bride and Groom have the confidence to let their surroundings do the talking.

Captured perfectly by Andrea & Marcus and beautifully styled by Andrea herself, I adore everything about it; the light, the story it tells….oh and the Sarah Seven dress! Swoon…

And here’s who made it happen: Submitted via Two Bright Lights; Photographer, Andrea And Marcus; Styled and planned by Andrea of Andrea And Marcus; Dress by Sarah Seven

I’m more than a little in love with this wedding goodness; how about you?

With Love, Boho Bride xx

A DIY Day-After Wedding Shoot Wed, 20 Jul 2011 05:00:11 +0000

Day-after wedding shoots are another genius wedding concept from across-the-pond that’s starting to gain in popularity with UK couples. A chance for Brides and Grooms to have some intimate {and fun} snaps in the wake of wedding bliss, once the hectic day itself has passed…

Todays shoot is from Tara Welch Photography via Two Bright Lights and it’s brimming with pretty. From the swoonworthy colours to the kooky DIY details, there’s so much of Autumn and Adam’s personality in these stunning images. They’ve certainly inspired me, so enjoy!

I’m so in love with those streamers! The Bride and Groom are artists – I think you can tell, they’ve a real eye for colour. You can have a peek of more of Tara’s stunning images here

With Love, Boho Bride xx

Mad Hatter’s Photo Shoot – Styled Shoot for The Millbrook Estate Fri, 10 Jun 2011 05:00:57 +0000

Today I have the pleasure of unveiling the photo shoot I styled for The Millbrook Estate, in collaboration with Lucy Shergold Photography. As I said in yesterdays post this all came about when we met the lovely Kate and Bob Boothby, who own Millbrook and decided to create a shoot that showed off their beautiful and quirky grounds…and so Bob came up with the Mad Hatter’s theme, as it meant we could incorporate some of the estate’s more unusual features – and have some fun! You can see the inspiration board here

A great excuse to meet and work with some very talented local suppliers; Lucy and I were introduced by the Boothby’s to the lovely Leisa of Devon Catering, who supplied the pretty (and very tasty) cupcakes and we also took the opportunity to invite Sarah Bayley of Two Green Monkeys, who came on board to show off some of her gorgeous crafts, as well as uber talented florist Allene Daly and the wonderful hair stylist Claire Mathers of Creative Wedding Hair, both of whom I’ve booked for my own wedding!

We decided that this shoot should be about how couples can best use the venue for their wedding day, the look needed to be inspirational yet attainable…that was our priority and so we chose not to borrow any wedding gowns or jewellery – instead our aim was to show off how to use the space, inspired by the surroundings…

I wanted the styling to look a bit hap-hazard. Chaotic, like the Mad Hatter. Not too polished, but kookie and above all – fun!

Lucy’s gorgeous sister Alice was brought on board to model as our Bride with a hint of ‘Queen of Hearts’ whilst Sarah kindly brought along her darling daughter Ostara to be our ‘Alice’.

All of the accessories were supplied by either Lucy and I or those mentioned above, though I did also ask Nikki of Knots and Kisses Wedding Stationery to loan us some samples from her beautiful and aptly named ‘Wonderland’ collection as I knew they’d compliment the styling perfectly…and they did! I love Nikki’s work.

The whole shoot was definitely a collaborative effort – with Lucy and I bouncing ideas off each other, madly emailing in the wee hours and both bringing car-loads of goodies, whilst everyone else involved not only devoted their time and talents, but brought so many ideas too. It was a magical day and I’m so proud of the results!

A big thank you to all involved!!! With so much love, Boho Bride xxx
