Sophisticated Boho – The New Intimate Wedding
Your weekend wedding inspiration, right here! Today’s blog is inspired by intimate weddings, with a lovely focus on sustainability and stunning floral styling. While we’re all wondering how many, if, when and how the heck – when it comes to our weddings in 2021, the likely scenario is that they’ll be small and cosy occasions. And that’s fine – smaller weddings are at least equally wonderful. Lovely Michelle from Posey Rose sent this beautiful inspiration our way, with images by Lisa Jade Photography. I’ll hand over to Michelle to tell you more.

With guidelines constantly changing in regards to Covid we wanted to celebrate all things love and demonstrate that an intimate wedding can be just as special and show stopping as the larger weddings we have all become accustomed to. This beautiful styled shoot was set at a lakeside location. An outside ceremony was organised with a beautiful floating arbor to frame the event set with boho nods including lanterns and a rug to give the feeling of bringing the inside outdoors and to help give the feeling of intimacy to the setting.
A single tipi was used to host the reception. This was big enough to hold a wonderful long banquet table set with a large focal table centre and small bud vases to follow the line of the table and allow for everyone to see and talk with each other.
For later in the day a bar area was set up with informal hay bales to act as seats and rugs again to keep things intimate and cosy.
We wanted to respect the nature and the beauty of the setting and so complemented the setting as much as possible using soft colours in the flowers and accessories. The flowers were kept in a natural free flowing style with no floral foams so as to minimise our carbon footprint. The canvas of the tipi looked perfect against the backdrop of the outdoor location and gave a real relaxed but beautiful vibe.
A delicious grazing table was used to feed the guests. This gave the feeling of being less formal than a traditional sit down meal but visually looked stunning and provides a real talking point.
