Teagan & Joe’s Bohemian Luxe Wedding

Bohemian luxe wedding bridal party

After meeting at a friend’s wedding, Joe told Teagan’s dad that they would be related one day – a surprise for Teagan as she didn’t think they’d hit it off! Two gorgeous children and a proposal later, they planned their bohemian luxe wedding – with bridesmaids in white, stunning bright florals and a focus on relaxed celebration.

Planning Experience

“I had everything finalised within a few weeks of being engaged. I found that by organising the details so early on, nearly everything went to plan.”

Bridal Party Styling

“I had an idea in my head about how I wanted the bridesmaids to look but couldn’t find it anywhere, so I designed them and had them made by my bridesmaid’s grandmother as she is a retired wedding dressmaker. I wanted the groomsmen’s look to be relaxed-formal, so we ditched the jackets and went for black bow ties and suspenders.”

Ceremony Styling

“We had a garden wedding with boho luxe finishes. The arbour was decorated with soft, draped white curtains and vines, seed pods and berries with neutral roses, pinks and a pop of maroon.”

Wedding Day Vibe

“By all reports it was a fun, laid back wedding and we kept the formalities short – only fifteen minutes for the ceremony and twenty minutes for the speeches. We had cocktails and canapés for the guests on arrival at the reception, and our DJ played a range of music all night.”

Reception Styling

“The reception had scattered flowers in vases on the tables. Creeping vines, gold lanterns, vintage red glasses and coloured candles also decorated the space. The rustic brick wall helped set the relaxed vibe for the night.”

Best Advice

“Plan early so you only have the last minute details to arrange. Get a good wedding diary with plenty of room for loose documents, and don’t be afraid to ask suppliers for their best price.”
