Last week I was contacted by a lovely researcher at ITV about a segment they’re putting together for an episode of the Tonight programme. ITV are looking for couples who are planning to – or who have got married on a tight budget and would like to interview them for the show…

If you fit-the-bill and would like to have a chat with the fab team behind this prime time show – please get in touch with your contact details and I’ll happily pass them on. Email me at


With Love, Boho Bride xx

This past weekend I spent some time with two of my dearest friends, who also happen to be part of my Bridesmaid ensemble…We were having a chat about wedding-ness and all the things I’ve yet to organise when my wedding shoes were mentioned…

My friends were horrified. Especially as I went on to inform them that I was also giving hair, make-up and post ceremony nibbles a miss in order to stick to our modest budget.

You see – paying for this wedding has turned me into Steve Martin’s character in Father of the Bride…OK, I am still the Bride, but it’s mine and my fiance’s hard earned cash that’s going into it. At the beginning of our wedding prep I vowed to ensure everything {erm and everyone} earned it’s place at our day and have to admit I really needed the brutal honesty of two dear friends to jolt me out of my wedding miser ways!!!
