We’ve seen boho styles rise in popularity over the last year or so. The free-flowing style and natural feel of the boho experience exudes itself in the vision of this “Boho meets Lavender” wedding shoot from Australia. It’s beautiful and offers a lot of tips on planning your own Boho wedding.
Colors and Styling
Shades of purple ranging from deep to pastel blended with soft pinks will add that feminine feel while coupling that with crisp whites and creamy colours along with gold will contribute that perfect touch of contrast and highlight. The green adds that sense of vibrancy and should be present through the floral arrangements and natural surroundings so as to not overdo it. Adding touches of metallic throughout your special day will add that sophisticated and modern element.
A traditional wooden table adds that charmingly rustic, relaxed and countryside elegance feel and it allows for an intimate gathering that isn’t overly formal. Set against it lightly washed lavender fabrics for that soft, romantic feel. For that hippy, casual feel that really welcomes your guests, go with an elaborately unique patterned rug to set the base, then layer it with fur rugs, sequin and tasseled handmade throws, a range of cushions inspired by Moroccan prints, thickly stitched accessories and metallic gold ottomans. Find inspiration from the heart of Morocco and bring it into the 21st century.
Centerpieces / DIY
Looking for something different? We found a cow skull, painted it white (with gold horns) and embellished it with pearls, diamonds and jewels. We made it romantic and feminine in our own way.
Sticking with the theme, try berry filled desserts that are red and purple. You can also offer macarons with a sprinkle of gold flakes to carry through your colors.
Utilize the soft, natural lighting of mother nature. Keep the atmosphere inviting and romantic by hanging some lights from the trees when it gets dark. Tie glass candle holders to a thick rope and use electronic candles for some additional mood lighting. Surround your guests with a warm glow!
Blooming, elaborate arrangements will speak for themselves. Let them be unstructured and messy, allowing the greenery to breaking up the richness of the purple. You want effortless, natural, organic-looking and free-flowing arrangements that will steal the show.
Featured in this shoot was an elaborately detailed gated card with the couple’s personal monogram laser cut into the fold out and held together by a sweet lotus flower sticker. For a less over the top and more chic invitation, choose a floral framed laser cut design that has a more bohemian feel.
Beauty and Fashion
Keep your look light and natural since you’ll be outside. For the base of your face, think dewy and luminous skin kept glowing with highlight or strobing. Top it with a baby pink or peach blush paired with rose gold or copper colored eyeshadow. For that contrast and move away from the glossy, keep the lips light and matte with a nude and neutral color.
Have your hair loose and free (think effortless). Natural hair-down waves or braids wrapped with real lavender sprigs and decorated delicately with handmade flower crowns or pearl and crystal embellished head wear that will really make a statement.
The Nicole Spose gown with lace backing features a subtly embellished bodice and an illusion neckline, beaded floral embroidery, and delicate lace appliqués that cascade into a tulle skirt.

Get unique and go with white henna that imitates the lace print of your wedding gown on your arm for that true bohemian feel. It’s an extra touch that adds a little style to your boho theme while maintaining it’s modern touches. Embrace this extra touch to a modern wedding.
