70s BoHo & festival vibes… with a nod to the disco diva !
The Bohemian revival in the 70s with icons of the time such as Mick and Bianca Jagger, the heady summers and the growing festival scene creates the inspiration for this shoot. The vibrant colours and summer breeze feeling alongside country home furniture taken into the great outdoors for hazy parties and revelry beneath the stars.
Weddings today are an opportunity for couples to create their hearts desire. The revival of the 70s groove and vinyl has certainly drawn a new audience to look once again at this exciting point in time.
We have combined a little country house BoHo, with a country festival feel and a little introduction of the disco diva as we head into the evening.
THE BRIDE’S STYLE
The hair and make-up is a fun point to start, Rachel of Isabelle Grace Make Up Artistry created a heavy lash and neutral palette (so popular at the time in the 70s) with a modern edge to give that Bambi Eyed look !
The frizz perm and big hair with a tight crown were recreated by Charlotte at Tangles Braunton with a more delicate curl and modern hairpieces to create a slicker version for our bride.
Our bride wears a selection of vintage items from Linda at Days of Grace. I wanted a laid back and very on trend ensemble that is romantic by day for the outdoor ceremony, complete with a bold Headdress from Feathered Fantasy to really bring the Boho vibes to life! Then vamps it up at night wearing a cool white jumpsuit sourced from Private Collection in Barnstaple, perfect to dance to the 70s soul and funk DJ by night !
THE TABLE STYLING
The tables and chairs were provided by Emma at The Great Barn Devon. We love the rustic metal and wood combination and the hues of the chairs work well against our accessories. The table arrangements and décor is a combination of retro finds and modern elements in hues of vibrant oranges alongside some of our own hire items. I chose fresh greens and browns reminiscent of Polaroid photos and colours that were very much part of the 70s yet very present in the current interior magazines of today. I created napkins from a retro fabric alongside some 70s fringing to act as a napkin ring. Taking elements on a theme and creating bespoke items for our clients is always something I enjoy.
A tumble of mismatched glass wear to compliment our palette adorn the table alongside our own accessories I was able to use a variety of props from Re-Store Barnstaple, a treasure trove of all sorts of wonders!
The stunning centrepiece of a stunning combination of foliage created by Ella at Folly Lane Flowers, I wanted a neutral spectacle, I dint want to overload the look with too much colour but the flowers needed to still make an impact ! Ella pulled this off perfectly with an abundance of structure and textures with clouds of white within all of the arrangements and the stunning bouquet.
With reference to some toxic 70s wallpapers I asked Anon Design to bring a contemporary look to the stationary and the fresh turquoise and green hues cut perfectly against the rest of the palette. Geometrics are a strong trend in stationary right now as couples opt for less fussy and more modern twists to their themes.
Our Blue Fizz Events traditional marquee was the setting for our 70s homage. The marquee works with any theme and we love creating new looks in it to match our clients dreams. We selected key pieces of from The Prop Factory to complete the scene.
The stunning backdrop and venue is Combas Farm in Croyde Devon. It has breathtaking views from its elevated position overlooking an exceptional area of North Devon’s coastline.
The cake echo’s the geometric with accent colours again bringing in new trends , vintage themes are still current yet in today’s climate the retro and BoHo versions of vintage win out in this shoot that bring the two together. Claire at Claire’s Sweet Temptations skilfully provided us with a cake that compliments the concept of our look.
