Boho Wedding Ideas - Boho Styled Shoot at The Yoghurt Rooms.
Just before lockdown, I was part of an insane styled shoot with boho inspiration and colours. It was to die for! Being a lover of boho weddings myself it was certainly right up my street!
Boho Wedding Ideas Concept
The concept and ideas were thought up by Hannah from Oh Snap UK who runs a Photo Booth company in Epsom, Surrey who has branched into VW wedding cars and camperbooths with Buttercup Bus as well as launching the “Glitter Bug”, so they wanted to create an awesome shoot to show off their vans with a boho wedding twist. I shot Hannah’s wedding last Summer – a festival wedding of VW camper dreams. So when I heard about this shoot involving various VW’s I knew it was going to be incredible to be part of.
The shoot took place at The Yoghurt Rooms in West Sussex; a stylish family run barn surrounded by countryside, oh and you can hire it out for an entire weekend might I add! Perfect for couples that want to party across the weekend festival style! The barn is absolutely enormous, so we had loads of room to play around with different set ups all gorgeously arranged by Ella from The Surrey Wedding Company. Her collection of furniture and props are what macrame dreams are made of and fit the boho wedding brief perfectly. Who doesn’t love a peacock chair?!
3 top tips for a boho wedding.
If you are planning a wedding and you’re looking for some boho wedding ideas, there are normally a few factors that can truly bring the bohemian vibe to life. Here are my top 3.
- The styling. If you haven’t got a stylist or someone you can hire a few boho pieces from, then you may not pull off a true boho wedding – unless of course you’re really creative! Think macrame, rattan and an abundance of Persian rugs. Another thing I love about boho weddings are the use of bare wooden tables. I think it really creates that rustic, natural feel for your day compared to crisp white table cloths.
- The flowers. Boho flowers play around with texture and colour. The bigger and wilder the better in my eyes. Colour can tend to be very natural with pampas grasses and golden foliage, but pops of colour is always a winner for me! You can even go for a wild summer bunch, with bold colours to contrast the neutral rattan and macrame!
- The dress. If you type into Google, “boho wedding dress” you are guaranteed to see lace. How many of you did that just now? 😉 A lot of the dresses are floaty and less structured. As if you’re about to step onto a beach. But some of them are fitted and can look deadly. The gorgeous dresses in this shoot were supplied by Love Spell Design. I absolutely ADORE the fitted gem with the arm bands (are they called this?!)
Of course there’s a bunch more things I can talk about, but I don’t want to give away my whole wedding plan to you all, duh!
In general a Boho wedding tends to be relaxed and unconventional. Alternative to an extent but mainly free-spirited and a bit hippie, especially if you really wanted to fit the boho brief to a tee like this stunning shoot. Even the food provided by The Garden Chef for this shoot was a relaxed styled picnic. Very outdoorsy and laid back as opposed to a three course meal. I mean I’m a massive foodie so the food could come out in a wheelbarrow and I’d scoff the lot!
