A happy Monday to you all and my word I’ve some pretty in store! I make no secret of the fact I love beautiful design and the stronger the statements and palette the better. Well the inspiration in this shoot doesn’t just deliver that by the bucket-load but is budget-friendly too. Oh yes attainable bohemian wedding style…which is precisely how it should be done. A beautifully styled wedding celebration should be inclusive – something we can all aspire to and the team behind “Bohemian Opulence” have nailed it!
Here’s what stylist & florist Georgia at Westwood design had to say: Inspired by my super glamorous Nana and her treasure trove of goodies she’s collected from around the world; from her living room to the slums of India, there is an abundance of overwhelming opulent design made with small amounts of money. I wanted to transfer this concept to the wedding world.
Many people presume you need a lot of money to make a beautiful wedding, but I often find that some of the most expensive weddings are the most unoriginal and I’m determined to prove that you can stand out of the crowd in your own personal way provided you work with the right people and think on your feet…So I borrowed and gathered as much as I could from people that inspire me and set out to design the most glamorous, yet bohemian budget friendly wedding shoot I could imagine. It’s amazing what a can of gold spray paint can do!
What completely made it was the gorgeous Daughters of Simone dresses, provided to us by Heart Aflutter bridal boutique in London. They perfectly encapsulated the ethereal gypsy feel of travelers all over the world; Floaty and worn bare foot. Obviously.
Refreshing, innovative, inspiring…quite a way to start the week! Frida Kahlo meets Georgia O’Keeffe…epic.
