Bohemian Rhapsody

A team of top wedding suppliers came together to create this gorgeous, bohemian-styled shoot. The day was filled with rich reds, purples, greens and golds. Our aim was to inspire you with a relaxed vibe and rustic feel, with lots of colours and textures and gorgeousness. This is what we came up with….

The make-up by Michelle was clean and classic, giving the impression of effortlessness. Her inspiration was that it was to be light-hearted and fun.

The gown, from the Dimity Collection by EcoBride, is a Chantilly lace and silk chiffon illusion dress with pleats. All of the gowns in the EcoBride collection are created from vintage or organic natural fabrics and handmade laces. The Chantilly lace used in this gown is a lace from the 1960’s which suits the bohemian theme exceptionally well.

Bridal fashion is currently enjoying a pink tinge as a refreshing change to the all-white gown, which brings romance and girliness to the story. This shoot has brought together a wonderful mix of suppliers, and the decor elements and carefully selected flowers complement the EcoBride gown and groom’s attire perfectly.

Pistachio Designs were hugely inspired by geometric patterns and shapes together with bold colours and touches of wood. The wood gave an earthy, natural feel, and the colours with the geometric shapes made the stationery vibrant and fun.
The wedding invitation is engraved wood with a subtle printed envelope, and the wood theme is carried through to the little arrows on the menus, the table numbers and table decorations. The laser-cut words are custom-made and add a special touch. The rest of the stationery has a rich green printed colour.

The inspiration for styling of the flowers and décor was the rich jewel tones so often associated with the bohemian style, rich fabrics and patterns providing a striking aesthetic. Different jewel tones are incorporated throughout the crockery and Indian ottomans and embellishments.

Deep red proteas mixed with rich purple sweetpeas and soft touches of pink, all brought together with greenery, created a look of romance and grandiosity. It is also important to bring in different textures, such as wood, ceramics, fabric and flowers, to stay true to the nonconformist approach.

All in all, it is all about colour, natural elements and happiness – which is what a wedding should be about!
