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:
BOHO ON THE BOYNE

Wild Feather Event Styling
Magic Moment Styling
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.

A ceremony in a magical forest with the ruins of an old Chapel as the backdrop and a reception with a woodland festival theme, this loved up couple were sure to wow!!
Let me introduce you to Jessica & Johnny!
These lovebirds met many moons ago at Love festival in Killyon Manor. They had their first date, fell in love and got engaged there so where better to have their wedding ceremony!!
A film set designer and landscape artist by trade, the quirky duo knew they wanted their wedding to reflect their unique sense of style and they absolutely nailed it!!
Jessica wowed her guests in a stunning star adorned Willow by Orion dress. She paired it with a fresh flower headpiece by Patsy & Co Floral Design, an incredible feather cape from Etsy and a pair of stunning Rachel Simpson shoes in the most beautiful shade of green. The look was completed with soft boho curls & a gorgeous half halo plait. We kept her makeup super dewy and really played up her eyes! Mac modesty on the lips finished it off perfectly 👌Johnny wore the most incredible bottle green suit & it complimented Jessicas look to a T!
A beautiful handfasting ceremony officiated by Romy from A Beautiful Ceremony sealed the deal for this fun loving duo before heading back to Bellinter house for their festival inspired reception! The pair really played a blinder here on the decor! Their set design & landscape artist backgrounds were plain to be seen… dozens of trees, plants & shrubs were transported to the Georgian house to completely transform the already stunning ballroom. Blankets on the ground, ribbons hanging from the trees & lots more greenery brought the loved up couple right back to their very first festival meeting!!

Your wedding day is said to be the biggest day of your lives and there’s no doubt that getting engaged comes in at a close second. This is why we recommend engagement shoots to capture those special moments of your relationship after the question has been popped.
Meet Erin & Padraic!!
Theres no better feeling than snuggling up to the one you love and this at-home shoot with Erin & Padraic was absolute perfection!
From playful and fun to dramatic and romantic, these photos will sweep you off your feet.
We met Erin & Padraic at the Farmhouse of The Village Barn in Tyrellspass Co Westmeath, a stunning recently renovated old farmhouse set amonst acres of golden corn! The weather was most definitely on our side that day so shooting options were endless!!
After a quick cuppa, Pamela got to work on Erins makeup ensuring it was perfectly natural for the relaxed, chilled out vibe we were going for. Poor Padraic looked blue beside his stunning partner so a wee lick of bronzer put some colour into his cheeks!! Truth be told I think he secretly enjoyed being pampered!! 😂
Once Pamela was happy with how everything looked it was over to Darren to work his camera magic!! Starting in the living area he let Erin & Pádraic take the lead and while the lovebirds relaxed, chatted & played some music, Darren was there in the background snapping away. He captured the most naturally creative yet emotional photos, photos that will be worth a thousand memories in years to come.
There were some extremely beautiful and meaningfull moments during the shoot and at times felt like Erin & Padraic were the only two people in the world. We were absolutely thrilled with how the images turned out and we hope you enjoy them too.
