Boho Bride is Moving House!

My beloved and I are finally moving after a six month battle to sell! Today we head off to pastures anew in a very familiar place, as we are returning to my childhood home of Devon to be (very) near my family, following a difficult time of illness and unrest.

Thank you for your continued support of Boho Bride and please bear with me as I plough through the trials and tribulations of moving house.

The cottage which is to be our home for the foreseeable future, has been in my family for many years. It belonged to my Great Aunt Flo and (with my parents support) is being lovingly restored by us. I’ll be sharing our progress over the Christmas holiday and hope to update you again within the next couple of days.

Thanks again for your patience.  With Love, Boho Bride xx

Home Sweet Home

I’m in a pensive mood today, for this time next week I’ll be living back in Devon after nearly 11 years away and I can hardly believe the journey I’ve been on this last decade…

A week after my 18th Birthday I moved to London…rented a ‘man with a van’ and headed off to my tiny room (a lean-to that backed onto a car port, to be precise) in a student house in South Woodford. And now, ten years on, I’m not only returning to my home town, but moving into a house that’s been in my family for 70 years (Great Aunts)…a street away from my folks!

I’m feeling a strange mix of excitment and bewilderment at present, for I am returning a very different person to the teenager that left…and as you all know, a soon-to-be-married one at that.

I’d always vowed that I would never live back in Devon, that it was somewhere I could now only appreciate as a visitor – yet, since getting engaged, I’ve felt this deep yearning to return home. OK, I know it’s partly due to my Dads illness, but before he was even diagnosed there was this huge pull to be back in the place that helped shape me into the woman I am now.
