Boho Rustic Wedding Autumnal Love Story in the Woods

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

The inspiration for this shoot was my love of all things boho, I think in part because I grew up surrounded by those eclectic, hippy boho styles of that wonderful era, which I believe shaped my way of looking at the world and how I expressed myself growing up, so at heart, the boho style is what I am most drawn to. Therefore, it was no surprise that when I had my rustic boho wedding and became a wedding planner I wanted my niche to be planning rustic boho weddings!

I love following venues and wedding suppliers that also inspire this boho style and show off a rustic boho theme in their products/services, and how they present their space. So when I visited Oak Tree Barn Weddings, I knew I had to absolutely have my styled shoot there, it is a gorgeous eclectic bohemian wedding venue for the free-spirited and people who want something different. I knew we could maximise all the beautiful parts of the venue, setting up our lovely tablescape in their gorgeous barn, the fabulous hat tipi for the lounge area, to the pretty ceremony area where we were able to showcase all the gorgeous rustic boho decor in all the instagrammable areas of this lovely venue. So we knew our love story in the woods with a beautiful boho woodland vibe would fit perfectly at Oak Tree Barn wedding venue. When the team came together I knew we all shared a love of all things boho, and I am genuinely proud to have worked with a super-talented group of amazing wedding suppliers, and bringing them together with my passion for boho weddings was just truly magical and wow doesn’t it show!

What inspired the team to come together to create this wonderful wedding-styled shoot?

IndieBride London - "Manny and I both love the bohemian vibes and I knew the images would be beautiful as the supplier list was full of talent! I love the warm and cosy rustic feel that the team put together".

Nicola Tee Bride Model - "I love boho and I haven’t ever done any boho shoots before, hence why I really wanted to do this one. I love the autumnal colours and vibe". @nicolateee

The Prop Library - "Working with heavy furniture and props means I’m not able to participate in as many styled shoots as I would like, but I had been looking to collaborate on a shoot with boho elements and an autumnal colour palette for some time. Manny’s inspiration board was fabulous, and I knew my new collection of vintage pieces would fit in perfectly. I had to say “Yes”! Manny assembled a wonderful group of talented suppliers who came together to bring her vision to life. It was a real privilege to be involved, and the resulting images are truly magical". @the_prop_library

“I Do” Bridal Services - "I love being creative and photoshoots are a great way to showcase everyone's talent plus it’s the best way to meet new suppliers within the industry". @idomakeupandhair_

Artisan Cakes and Confections - "I had not done a boho shoot previously let alone an autumnal one and absolutely loved Manny’s style. The colours, textures, mood, venue, flowers, makeup, models, and props were all perfect and wonderful to meet and work with fabulous suppliers. Manny choreographed the whole shoot to perfection! Manny could also be regarded as the “Conductor” and us the “Orchestra” - all playing our parts beautifully, both individually and collectively, to produce the most amazing, stylish shoot".


Your Confetti - "Styled shoots are a great way for us to showcase the different confetti colours/mixes we offer". @yourconfetti

All Shapes & Slices Cake Co - "It was great to work with rich autumnal colours as we came out of a long summer wedding season." @allshapescake

Rose and Grace Ceremonies - "I chose to be a part of the shoot because Oak Tree Barn is one of my favourite local venues to work at as a Wedding Celebrant. It has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, which is a match made in heaven with a boho-style wedding, with a less formal ceremony, and more fun"!

Basil Dsouza - "I really enjoy working with creative people and when the opportunity came around I was excited to try something new, boho style wedding, and get the chance to create a beautiful-looking experience with some awesome folks". @_basil_dsouza_

Chris Jerome James - "I was invited to shoot a film for this project by who I have shot with in the past. I was immediately drawn to the concept with it being very rustic and boho style, with that being very up my street. The venue itself was actually one of my potential venues for my own wedding so I knew it was going to be a great one. It was a lovely experience to also work with like-minded and talented suppliers". @chrisjeromejames

Sonder Lust Photography - "When Manny first shared her mood board for this shoot with me I knew instantly this was for me. All the textures and earth tones mixed with boho vibes, let alone the lineup of talent involved and don't get me started on the epic venue… well she had me at hello. When she asked if I knew a videographer who fit in with the team I knew there was only one person who should be working on this and that’s Chris. He lives and breathes cool, has the most innovative transitions and just knows how to shoot a cool promo".

Hardings Wedding Stationery - "After working with Manny on previous shoots we jumped at the opportunity to be involved again after witnessing her impeccable vision previously. We had a design that fit in perfectly with the mood board presented and I think all of the images from the day and the suppliers involved speak for themselves! What a privilege to be part of this". @hardingsweddingstationery

The result speaks for itself, we were all happy seeing how well everything came together and feeling proud that our collective creativity shone through and was perfectly married to the concept for the shoot.
