For more inspiration, why not visit Bridwell yourself … SATURDAY 29th & SUNDAY 30th April 2017 …
THE BOHO & RETRO WEDDING FESTIVAL arrives at Bridwell, EX15 3BU – Free Entry –
Our seating and tables were supplied by Emma Birkin at “The Great Event” who sourced some fantastic chairs from an Indian cinema alongside rustic wooden trestle tables. I fell in love with them and they worked brilliantly with the palette of plaster pink, navy and browns and the perfect contrast to the Boho Luxe look that we combined around them.
I (Bridget, Blue Fizz Stylist) dressed the table with Birdwell’s own crockery and satin napkins and oversized ties in hues of duck egg and green with the addition of feathers . The chair backs and table were decked out in volumes of greenery by our florist Emma at Brompton Buds, who combined the plaster pink colour with the most beautiful roses and trailing vines.
Emma also bought along the metal pillars that worked so well with the chairs, these we used to line the aisle in the chapel where the tall flower displays added drama and opulence to the whole scene.
Our National award winning cake designer Jennifer Wells at Edible Essence Cake Couture created three equally breathtaking cakes again echoing our colour scheme and showcasing her talent with intricate sugar flowers and contemporary finishes.
Our stationary was provided by Lyndsey & Erica at Anon Design. I selected a strong design with simple details that worked with the Bohemian feel. The addition of a little sparkle really bought these in line with the whole look of the day.
THE BRIDAL PARTY
Our groom wore an eclectic mix of navy velvet, mustard tweed and greys from Samuel Daw and Co in Barnstaple. The slim line trousers and silk cravat gave this edgy look a contemporary and very wearable feel.
Our bridesmaid on the day wore a selection of bespoke flower crowns from Dinah at Flora Bella that worked perfectly on our models tumbling hair. The bridesmaids dress was provided by Linda at Days of Grace who has a treasure trove of vintage pieces from every era you can imagine and always something unique !
HAIR & MAKE UP
Our bride and bridesmaids make-up was created by Genevieve Satha who worked on both models to give them a look that worked together but individual to each other. We opted for a fresh warm look which Genevieve achieved with strong and dramatic impact on the lashes!
Our hairdresser Brigitte Fisher created a soft tumbling curl on our bride and bridesmaids hair for the effortless Boho vibe topping off the brides hair with the addition of a vintage headdress from Days of grace.
The bride and bridesmaids both wore handmade jewellery from Barnstaple Jacqueline Ashworth Jewellery. I loved the simplicity and high quality of these pieces perfect with any outfit but a delightful look on a bride and a great suggestion for bridesmaids gifts.
The incredible bridal gowns were provided by Pirouette in Exeter. I selected both dresses as they were in every way exactly what I think of for Boho , with a dash of refinement. The main dress was embellished in gentle beadwork and a detailed back. The second look for the day was a cotton lace backless dress that had a grand silhouette and a modern feel. Bridget Fisher created a relaxed up-do for our bride to continue the rest of the celebrations into the evening with a classic but laid back look overall.
This look takes some elements of luxury, fine dining, opulent flowers ,designer pieces working perfectly with rustic pieces and the eternally popular Boho trend. The subtle and varied colour palette works on hues rather than a limited shade enabling you to be able to bring eclectic items together as one theme. We had a great team to bring all of this together to inspire and enchant you with your own ideas….all captured beautifully behind the lens by Jo of Enchanted Brides Photography. Truly an extraordinary dream team……Brides …..your boho luxe wedding awaits!
