Set the scene. Two beautiful brides in elegant lace wedding dresses say I do at the stunning Tinakilly Country House in Ireland surrounded by their nearest and dearest and an abundance of incredible vintage wedding decor. It doesn’t get much better than that does it?

First of all, the photos of Laura and James in the back of a vintage chevy truck are straight out of Hollywood. There are some serious Notebook vibes going on at today’s glorious wedding. But that’s not the only thing you’re going to love about this beautiful DIY extravaganza. The bride and groom travelled far and wide to source the food truck for their wedding trying delicacies all over the UK, even at Glastonbury festival! The pièce de résistance is the handcrafted DIY self-service bar which is a genius way to treat your guests to a free drink.
Rose and Josh weren’t worried if their day was ‘perfect,’ they just wanted a fun relaxed Manchester wedding that truly reflected them. When things got stressful, and even with a terror threat, they remembered that “it’s about the marriage, not the wedding”. They supported local businesses where they could including Sarah at Pink Cocoa who brought their wedding cake vision to life, beautifully mimicking the hand-painted watercolour design Rose’s oldest friend illustrated for the wedding invitations. What a lovely personal touch.
We’re more than a little bit pleased to see not one, but two of our fabulous recommended suppliers at Roxy & Tom’s beautiful Persian wedding in Devon. First up is Roxy’s gorgeous lace gown with high neck and adorable 3/4 sleeves by Catherine Deane, then there’s Virginia’s Vintage Hire wonderful wooden trestle tables and chairs gracing the rustic reception. Addng a splash of colour to the setting comes courtesy of mum with her homegrown flowers, plus lots of DIY decor from friends too.
Ever since bride Mel was a little girl and discovered some photographs of her great grandmother’s wedding, she has been fascinated by vintage style, in particular, the Gatsby era. And so a Great Gatsby theme wedding was born, complete with finger wave hairdo, gramophone and champagne tower. Everything oozes glamour and sophistication, and is a true reflection of this couples love.
So I’ve come to the conclusion a bell tent is in actual fact a mini Taris’ full of space and functionality. I’m in complete awe of how Rock The Day Styling, Wonderland Invites and Pitch Boutique have styled and used these beautiful tents. From the grazing table to the chill-out area, each set up provides you with lots of boho style and inspiration for your own big day. Plus hello beautiful blooms adorning each of these beautiful setups. And did we mention all the beautiful boho wedding dresses and hairstyles too? You are going to LOVE everything about this inspiration!
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.
