boho on the boyne, wedding styled shoot by Pamela Matthews

Boho on the Boyne

Boho weddings arent going anywhere anytime soon, in-fact they’re getting more and more popular. Boho brides can embrace the theme through their dresses, hair, makeup, accessories and decor. Think flower crowns, macrame, flowing dresses and colourful textiles.

WEDDING SUPPLIERS IN BOYNEHILL HOUSE

With that in mind, 21st July saw some of Irelands top wedding suppliers gather in Boyne Hill House for my debut creative lead on a shoot – normally I am just the make up artist but I had a vision which is in line with the trend of boho and I knew I had to bring this to life. There is no I in team and I knew I needed the best in the business to help with my vision so I called on the talents of the following suppliers to deliver:

BOYNE HILL HOUSE
Boyne Hill House was the venue of choice and for those not familiar with it, this wouldn’t be a typical boho venue.  I wanted to show that boho is not isolated, it’s transitional and can work anywhere really with some clever styling.
What is important with Boyne Hill House is that it has the service and quality to deliver a superb wedding experience and that’s primary to any wedding style. We didn’t just want style however, we wanted substance too and with so many beautiful areas dotted around this stunning venue we were more than spoiled for choice!! Its easy to see why Boyne Hill House is a favourite amongst couples and photographers alike.

DARREN BYRNE PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM
Darren was always going to be my photographer of choice on this shoot. His vision is completely aligned with mine and for couples, its really important that your photographer can share what your idea of success looks like. Darren is fun, daring and gives great direction to get that all important money shot.

WILD FEATHER EVENT STYLING
To bring a full boho look together, it’s essential that there are decor nudges that transport your guests to that feeling of natural, laid back beauty. Introducing Wild Feather Event Styling. Having followed Laura on Instagram I knew I had to have her involved. She is a true visionary and has hand picked and crafted boho decor that gives the perfect boho experience.

MK BRIDAL & BY KYNA
When it came to the look, there was only one place I was going to visit for dresses and that was MK Bridal. Mairead is a premium stockist of top designers such as Enzoani, Paloma Blanca, Sottero and Midgley, Essense of Australia, Rosa Clara and of course the main boho brand Willowby by Watters. She handpickeds each of the dresses stocked in her fabulous state of the art studio and her eye for detail is second to none.
For accessories, it had to be By Kyna. A Milliner and designer specialising in bridal & occasion accessories, Kyna creates heirloom quality bridal headpieces, veils and capes.

MAGIC MOMENT STYLING

A boho insipired look wouldnt be complete without wild, rustic and free spirited flowers. Having worked with June on many a wedding I knew she’d create exactly what was needed for the shoot. Using pampas grass, dried wheat , eucalyptus, avalanche roses and gypsophelia to name but a few June put together bouquets and flower crowns that can only be described as awe inspiring.

HAIR & MAKEUP
I cant complete this piece without a nod to our star woman and stunning Model Laura Cunningham from Catwalk Models! She was a dream to work with and is an absolute credit to Mandy and all the team in Catwalk. Her professionalism, ability to take direction and eagerness to get that perfect shot shone through all day.
When it came to her hair and makeup, nothing screams boho more so than long flowing curls and beautiful glowing skin. Laura has the most amazing mane of luscious locks and a natural radiance to her skin so bringing our vision to reality was a dream to create.

 

Massive thank you to everyone involved in this shoot, without them this dream wouldnt have become a reality. I knew I had to have the best in the business so reached out to my fellow Weddings On Line suppliers and the response was phenomenal. Sara from Irish Wedding Blog was also massive source of support and arrived on the day to give a helping hand, so huge thank you to her for that.
Special word of thanks has to go to Darren for all his hard work behind the scenes on the images. Lots more exciting shoots to come from us.
