A bohemian bride by the lake – styling ideas at Holbeck Ghyll with Arusha’s Images Photography

Two of my best friends got married at Holbeck Ghyll – it’s one of the Lake District’s loveliest wedding venues and is set on a peaceful hillside away from the world outside. It’s a dream venue. And so when I heard about this gorgeous shoot from Arusha’s Images Photography I simply had to see more.

Themes and venues go hand in hand – fact. If you’ve decided on your theme you’ll need to find a venue where you can make it work… and sometimes that can be tricky. Vintage won’t work in a modern hotel. Art deco won’t work in a barn. Let your venue inspire your theme then… as Arusha did with this beautifully curated shoot…

We’re talking light and pretty photography with vast skies and pastel details. Our bride and groom are in nature: on Holbeck Ghyll’s terrace all you can see are mountains and the sparkling Lake Windermere – and by the lake there’s a jetty perfect for slipping toes into the gentle waves of England’s largest lake. Could anything be more perfect for an elegant bohemian wedding?

Arusha told me, “As these were collaborative shoots, with the aim of showing off the venue and its setting above the beautiful Lake Windermere, my main inspiration was the hotel itself, incorporating the beauty of that and its romantic location. I live at the edge of the Lake District and believe that it’s so important to really bring the natural landscape into wedding images taken there.

Holbeck Ghyll offers intimate ‘two hearts’ weddings involving just the bride, groom and a few witnesses so I felt that a relaxed, soft and natural feel would compliment this style of wedding, so I went with a bohemian look.

I particularly love the pastel colours and the bridal flower crown.

The bohemian bouquet includes  Vu Vu Zela roses, Faith roses, white dahlias, pink astilbi, blue nigella, scaboius pods and flat leaf eucalyptus. Michelle at Valerie Ann’s Florist chose this as she loved the pastel summery colours, the natural feel, and how feminine and soft they are.

The dresses are beautifully boho and wonderfully elegant – Charlotte Balbier ‘Lily Mae’ and
Jenny Packham ‘Odessa’

Boho brides… prepare to fall in love
