Oozing the1970’s vibe

Like many brides I was completely head over heels for any ‘boho bride’ that I laid my eyes on whilst planning my wedding. I just loved (and still do) the tousled hair, the disarranged bouquets and the yards of long flowing lace and silks. Well today is all about going back to the emergence of the modern day bohemian vibe; the hippies of the 1960’s – 1970’s.

There is much to be taken from this era in terms of wedding day styling. Think VW camper van, mismatched table settings, flower crowns, bags of colour, crochet and maybe throw in an oversized floppy hat for good measure.

Whilst a full blown hippie wedding might not be everyone’s taste, there are definitely pockets of this era that will add to a bridal boho vibe just perfectly.

Under the Oak Tree; LeAnn & Matthew

I love finishing the week on a high and LeAnn and Matthew’s day does just that. Loren Routhier Photography captured this couples stunning garden wedding in the most charming corner of Charleston.  

With an ethereal theme of birds and botanicals these photographs portray a soft and sweet affair. Lavender bridesmaids, organic fleurs (the bouquets are some of the prettiest I have seen in a long time) and seed bombs wedding favours make for some rather lovely details.

Blush and Gold

I love the idea of creating a truly sophisticated and romantic day by using blush and gold in your colour palette. There is something about these two colours together which just oozes elegance. With blush wedding dresses on the rise, I think that this is a colour palette that we will see a lot more of over the next year and quite frankly I cannot wait because I love it.

Melati & Mark

Above all else, I love wedding photography that perfectly captures the joy and emotion of the day and this wedding from Loren Routhier does exactly that. Not only is the setting completely dreamy, but the bridesmaids are chic in their navy dresses, the groom is handsome in his pale suit and the bride is simply stunning in her Nicole Miller dress.

Melati’s statement earrings have also got my heart beating faster. This is a wedding that has it all….the perfect day.

Teal

I must confess to having a bit of a crush on all things teal. This is the perfect hue for anyone looking for a bright and feminine touch to their wedding day. Either tone it down with cool mint greens for a sea glass colour palette or combine it with rich jewel colours to create a more striking colour combination.

Afternoon tea in wonderland

Anyone who has ever read Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland would, like me, have been captivated by the imaginative craziness that made you feel so at home. It is a childhood book that I loved. And then came the Disney film…I was well and truly hooked. 

Today’s post is all about combining the love for Afternoon Tea with Alice in Wonderland and if I may say so myself, I think that it is a cracking combination.

As we enjoy the sheer luxury that surrounds us in Dubai (and I’m sure that most of us have experienced an Afternoon Tea or two here) it can be very easy to forget how simply wonderful the weird can be. Quirky and strange can be captivating yet frightfully quaint and it is this ideal that I have tried to portray in this mood board.

Afternoon tea or buffet dinners are making waves in the wedding world as more and more couples look for an informal alternative to the traditional sit down meal.  I absolutely love this combination of vintage finds and pretty cupcakes and I hope that you folks do to…
