A Relaxed Boho Country Wedding Inspired by a Painting

This beautiful boho wedding has me wanting to recreate my own wedding all over again! Lovely bride Lisa, was inspired by a the painting, 'Midsummer Eve' by Edward Robert Hughes, and painted her own design for her wedding invitations, Save the Dates, and table stationery. I've fallen in love with the relaxed country feel, the dreamy lakeside teepee wedding reception, and Lisa's divine messy bouquet, made up of spray roses, sweet-smelling honeysuckle, and mint. Every wedding detail fits perfectly, from Lisa's bespoke head-dress, her sweet page boys' and flower girls' outfits, and her divine David Fielden dress - which was actually the top and bottom of two dresses put together. Enjoy these wonderful pictures by Victoria Phipps Photography, and stay tuned for the amazing reception photographs. You wait till you see the Lyndon Top lakeside reception venue!

We celebrated our wedding on 6th July 2013 at St Mary's Church in Ashwell. We hosted our wedding reception in a tipi at Lyndon Top, overlooking Rutland Water.

We were hoping to create a relaxed, country wedding and were delighted to find a field overlooking Rutland Water, so we had a fantastic view of the lake as well.

My wedding shoes were from the Rainbow Club, and I bought them in John Lewis.

As one big DIY project, I created all my wedding stationery. I was keen to reflect the pretty, relaxed theme. I painted the Save the Dates, wedding invitations, table places and table names. {You can see the invitation just under the bridesmaids shoes in this picture}.

My wedding dress was designed by David Fielden, and I bought it from Hannah at Noble and Wright. We tried to create something pretty, fairly traditional but with a hint of boho. We ended up taking the skirt from one dress and the top from another to create the final design.

A very clever friend made my wedding headpiece and my mum's hat. Her name is Sophie Iliffe.

My wedding bouquet and our buttonholes were created by our wedding florist Miss Pickering. The bouquets included honeysuckle, spray roses, sweet peas and herbs such as mint.

We were looking to create wild, loose floral displays with lots of colour; in particular pinks and purples and creams. 

My flower girls wore cardigans and ballet pumps by I Love Gorgeous, pretty tops by Petit Bateau, and their tutu skirts were a friend's discovery, but I'm afraid they were a small supplier and they're not making them anymore.

My page boys wore shirts and shorts from Little Linens, and sandals from Sarenza.

My husband's suit was designed by Bladen, and supplied by Paul Richman Gentleman's Outfitters in Stamford. His shoes were by Cheaney.

I walked up the aisle to Canon in D Major by J. Pachelbel. The recessional was Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by J.S. Bach. Our first dance was Islands In the Stream, sung by our fantastic band, Too Darn Hot.

Our church and teepee flowers were created by a family friend - Goldie Bardwell, and her team of ladies.

Our wedding photographer was Victoria Phipps. She was recommended by a friend who had used Victoria for their wedding. Victoria is fab; really easy to work with and she is able to really capture the atmosphere of the day. Most importantly she takes beautiful photographs!

 Our wedding videographer was Richard Mattock of Studio 27.
