Those who saw Friday’s post will already be familiar with the wonderful designer Katy Howieson from What Katy Did Next…well, as I mentioned then , she has has created a mood board inspired by the ear-bashing I’ve given her about my own wedding plans! I’ll keep this brief and hand you over to Ms Howieson, who’s written a lovely intro.

Katy,when I saw what you created I welled up – it’s stunning. You really get the essence of the day we hope to celebrate. Thank you so much for creating this spine-tingling loveliness xx

“I contacted the lovely Sarah of Boho Bride after she commented on one of my posts. I followed the link back to her wonderful blog and fell in love! Boho Bride’s style is right up my street and our tastes seemed to overlap more often than not. My love of putting together moodboards and taking on new themes pushed me to offer my creative services to Sarah. She loved the idea and gave me a few hints and ideas of what she liked colour and stylewise before I set upon making up her moodboard.

With the themes – informal garden party, shabby chic, jewel tones & firey Autumn shades I had a lot to take on and I was ready for the challenge. After falling head over heels for the ‘boho’ wedding dresses from Johanna Johnson’s I had the hard choice of which design to pick. Johanna’s designs are amazing and she’s the first designer to change my mind about making my own wedding dress. Her pieces are near perfect and she has a fabulous array of sparkling accessories too! The design I picked for Sarah is understated yet beautiful – right on track for an informal wedding.

When I thought of jewel colours and Autumn I immediately came to purples and oranges which make the whimsical Wildflowers hair comb by Gardens of Whimsy the perfect bridesmaid accessory for this themed wedding. The piece has enough colours to pick highlights to work with such as the purple – leading me to those glam suede heels and the Monsoon evening dress, not too formal and not too casual. The rich orange tones are picked up in the contemporary style wedding cake complete with ceramic lovebirds. Little birdy cake toppers are bang on trend for next year and styles are popping up everywhere to compliment your big day.
