Happy Monday lovelies! Did you have a nice weekend? We were in Manchester – had a lovely time at the folk festival on Thursday night, then shopped on Friday and met up with family, and I had a lovely calligraphy workshop on Saturday afternoon. Coming back into Cumbria was nice… it’s always such a relief to see the sea and mountains again after a trip away! My last calligraphy class this year will be on the 7th of December, and we’re going all festive with lovely ideas for gift tags, Christmas cards etc. Do join me – there’s more info here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/christmas-calligraphy-workshop-tickets-49871542125 and as always I’m looking for a wedding photographer to take beautiful pics of the class in return for a massive discount off the ticket price. Get in touch if you can help!
Today I have a lovely shoot for brides looking for boho styling ideas, but with a minimalist edge. Boho doesn’t have to mean bright colours or DIY projects everywhere; the look translates beautifully to a clean, white colour palette with just a few carefully curated details. Lovely Marina Walker Photography shows us how it’s done. Marina worked alongside some fabulous creatives to bring together this shoot – our faves are the stunning macramé backdrop by Vanir Creations and stationery suite from Made by Rae – oh, and who doesn’t love succulents as a wedding look?!
The idea was to capture minimalistic wedding styling inspiration for a bride who is boho at heart. We had a beautiful venue with a stunning view across the Ribble Valley countryside, it was all white, essentially a blank canvas, which was perfect for the minimal colour palette I had hoped to achieve. We decorated with minimalistic grey, white, a touch of marble, shades of green and some natural elements to bring out the boho. We used an on trend giant macrame backdrop and brilliant succulent and eucalyptus touches runs through the shoot. We started our model off with a classic look with a beautiful Riki Dalal gown, bespoke veil and headpiece, then added a boho twist later on with a eucalyptus crown and macrame.
I want to show couples planning their weddings that on trend minimalism can be really cool and visually interesting. you can add texture with macrame, wooden element and marble etc. The theme can run beautifully through the whole wedding from the invitations to the cutting of the cake! Also I wanted to show brides they could easily switch up a classic ceremony look to be more boho and relaxed at the reception doing both or either looks for their wedding day.
