A boho wedding is carefree, unconventional and effortless. If you’re looking for a relaxed country wedding with a soft boho vibe, then we have created the look for you.
Our photo-shoot location was the multi-award-winning Beeston Manor; a Grade II listed sandstone barn, meticulously restored using traditional building methods and maintaining many of its original features. This really has been a labour of love for its owners, the Bickerstaffe family. This exclusive venue is set within 140 acres of land in the village of Hoghton and boasts stunning, panoramic rural views. Inside, there are 14 elegant and rustic en-suite bedrooms, including a beautifully appointed bridal suite, with oak beams, pink sandstone walls and high-end furnishings throughout. www.beestonmanor.com
A boho wedding gown should be unfussy and free-spirited. Kimberley Anne Bridal Boutique provided ‘Bakerloo’ by Dando of London – as seen on Say Yes to the Dress – a streamlined, column-style gown with sweetheart neckline and drooped illusion back. Featuring a hand-beaded, delicate lace bodice, with plain skirt and detachable glass train with scalloped lace edging. www.kimberleyannebridalboutique.com
Makeup is beautifully natural with hair soft and flowing, adorned with foliage, which is a must for the boho bride. Samantha Mercer of The Dollz, and Hair by Kelly, have created this style perfectly. www.thedollz.co.uk and www.hairbykelly.co.uk
Look for a relaxed arrangement of flowers; a hand-tied bouquet, informal with lots of textures and colour. Create a unique floral backdrop with trailing greenery to frame those all-important photographs. Lilybets Flowers provided their copper frame, draped with ferns and wild flowers. www.lilybetsflowers.com
Dollz Events’ timber-panelled, light-up letters were a fantastic rustic addition to our shoot, together with their natural, delicate, 100 per cent biodegradable, petal confetti for the all-important confetti shower shots too. www.dollzevents.co.uk & www.dollzconfetti.co.uk
Our photographer was the gorgeously creative DJ Archer Photography. Husband and wife team Danny and Lizz fully embrace their unique weddings by capturing beautifully bespoke images. You can’t help but be comfortable in their company, which enables them to produce relaxed, natural photography, which documents your day perfectly.www.djarcherphotography.co.uk
