Bohemian Chic

Every so often I come across a photograph that takes my breath away.

Often it kickstarts a creative frenzy in me where I begin frantically curating images that are either inspired by or complement the original photograph to create a look or theme.

It could be anything. A beautifully made up face, the raw drama of crashing waves against a cliff, or the exquisiteness of some architectural detail that I can’t get enough of.

This time it was a hawk.

I didn’t even know I liked birds.

The result is a inspiration board which I’ve entitled ‘Bohemian Chic’.

Think talented artisans, raw materials, floating chiffon, feathers, chalky whites, tawny browns and a whisper of peach, ferns, herbs, weathered wood, a glimpse of gold and a whole heap of natural materials scooped together into one gorgeous pile of loveliness.

Perhaps it’s inspired you, maybe it’s not your cup of tea.

Either way, if you’re struggling with your wedding colours or your ‘theme’ for the day, take a step back and breathe.

Is there an image or painting you’ve always loved? Perhaps there’s a treasured possession that’s been with you and your beau since the beginning of your journey. Let this small object be the starting point for your inspiration.

From small acorns, mighty oak trees grow.

  1. Clearly I’m very busy in work today and havent been shopping for shoes and buying euromillions tickets and reading RMW all day… oh how I wish i could carry off bohemian!! I’m in no way natural looking enough and look like a moron if I ever put flowers on my head!

    What an absolute treat for the eyes though, gorgeous floaty, natural, wild creatures of weddingness. Loving the gazelle like limbs of the ‘booted’ bride.

    Right, I really really need to get some work done! xx

  2. These are so beautiful, I would quite like to just put the whole thing up on a wall or something it’s so pretty! But instead it’s all going in my wedding scrap book, thanks for the lovely inspiration! xxx
