Macrame Decor, Vintage Caravan Photobooth and Five-Tier Naked Wedding Cake for Boho Wedding in Woodlands

This boho wedding – with macrame decor, a woodland ceremony and bright blooms – has me beaming from ear to ear. Not only because every inch of the day is utterly beautiful, but also because there are so many special touches: a proud dad-daughter moment walking down the aisle; the bride dancing to Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight with her 87 year old grandad; a ring box made from the wood of the bride’s grandfather’s apple tree; and 30 sleeping bags, sourced by the mother of the bride, being donated to homeless shelters once the wedding celebrations were over. Little wonder Emma from Freckle Photography describes the couple as two of the nicest people she’s ever met. This is one utterly gorgeous wedding which will warm your heart whilst also leaving you dreaming of your own woodland wonderland.



“We didn’t want to be confined to a building/venue; our day needed to be a collaboration of all the things we have learned to love throughout our years together. This included the freedom of the great outdoors, camping adventures, live music, BBQs, and dancing under the stars until dawn breaks. This relaxed feel was an idea that ran madly, wildly away from us but resulted in the most epic 24 hours of our lives. When we woke up the next morning for bacon butties with all our guests, with a slightly wonky flower crown but amazing stories to share, we knew it had been the best day ever.” – Em & Christian

Macrame Decor

Done right, nothing beats boho, and this altar, dripping with macrame decor, makes the most dreamy stage on which to say ‘I do’. Gorgeous bride and groom, Em & Christian, look like rustic rockstars amid the whimsical woodland setting, and every detail of their day is suitably swoonworthy. The mantra for their marriage was, “You’ll find no wi-fi in the forest but we promise you’ll find a better connection”, and I can’t imagine any guests wanting to get out their phones when such beauty was all around them. We’re sure you’ll love discovering all the details of their big day too; would you head for the vintage gin bar or retro photobooth first?



“We planned our wedding in England from Australia, which definitely had its challenges. Long evenings were spent trawling websites and creating a shortlist to choose from. We started with our golden photographer – and now incredible life friend – Emma from Freckle Photography, and everything else fell into place. We sought local suppliers, small ethical businesses or those who were generally relaxed in their approach. We wanted to get to know our suppliers so that the day felt personal rather than formal or ‘corporate’. Managing to find ‘the acoustic guy‘ from one of our favourite London pubs was a real highlight!” – Em & Christian

Many of the details of Em & Christian’s big day were created by the couple themselves (along with the bride’s dad, who slaved for hours in his shed building, painting and engraving!). There’s nothing like seeing your venue fully set up with all your accessories – your labour of love – and if you fancy going down the DIY route too, we have plenty of inspiration and ideas to help you get crafty.

  1. Beautiful. I love all the little details and the big ones too, that macrame is epic. I really love the lack of calligraphy in the wedding, I know gasp but it’s refreshing to see freehand type that’s not calligraphy in a wedding.
