EXOTIC ISLAND ELOPEMENT IN KOH YAO NOI, THAILAND

There’s something utterly exhilarating about eloping to a hidden paradise. Surrounded by the simplicity and silence of the coastline and timelessness of nature. COASTAL ESCAPE in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand, is the perfect location for an intimate exchanging of vowels and Sydney Wedding photographer SHERI MCMAHON has depicted that perfectly here with plenty of natural textures and enviable beach settings. I AM FLOWER designed bouquets of fresh white orchids and exotic anthuriums to shape and elevate the soft pastel tones and metallic gold table décor. Model bride Julia wears a gown with a plunging back by BERTA, and their infectious happy vibes made for amazing wedding day portraits in this picturesque setting.

A heartfelt thank you to Sydney Wedding photographer SHERI MCMAHON for sharing this beautiful elopement inspiration with us from Thailand. Sheri is Australian based with a love for fine art film wedding photography. She is inspired by natural light, European architecture, incredible scenery and adores photographing intimate moments and authentic unique love stories. Her approach is soft and subtle. “Film is flawless, it captures light, skin tones and romance beautifully.” With a huge passion and love of travel she’s always happy to travel to capture your magical day.

Quick Guide – Boho Weddings by Marieta Fernadez

by Marieta Fernández, author of the blog Quiero Una Boda Perfecta

Today on the Atelier Backstage blog, we’re bringing you a healthy dose of inspiration for creating an amazing boho wedding. Have you been daydreaming of an ethereal, outdoor wedding that has all the boho vibes?  Then, don’t miss today’s post with very helpful tips for enjoying a bohemian-chic wedding. Take notes!

Quick Guide: Boho Weddings / Photo via: Green Wedding Shoes

Non-traditional, bohemian, hippie weddings, clearly inspired by the ’60s and ’70s, when the boho influence was at its peak… sophisticated weddings, full of flowers, with a DYI or rustic touch… Boho weddings are in style! And we shouldn’t be surprised. Boho weddings are one of the most-liked options by brides.  Without a doubt, this is a perfect summary for a wedding where we want to have a simple celebration with plenty of personality.

Boho weddings are characterised by being natural, 100% open to personalization, and for people who love nature in its pure state. So for this type of wedding, ideally you would hold it outdoors. The beach would also be a sublime option for both ceremony and reception.

The decoration in bohemian weddings will be essential to achieve that slightly hippie touch you’re looking for. Whites, neutrals, earth tones… will be the go-to colors to serve as the backdrop. But we will always have to incorporate floral elements to add brighter and/or more intense colors like pinks, mints, lavenders or oranges, purples, fuchsias… to create the magic and warmth that this type of wedding transmits.

Flowers are essential, large blooms, grand bouquets, big wreaths… flowers always transport us to a whimsical world where everything around them glows. So, don’t forget the flowers in your boho wedding; they will be one of your main elements!

You also can add artisanal textiles, such as macramé elements, and dream-catchers, flower curtains, feathers, plumes and glass objects. We can even add a vintage touch with furniture or objects that have been recycled or purchased in street markets.

The wedding dress will be closely linked to the theme and style of the wedding. For me, in a boho wedding the bride must always present a simple yet striking image. She is effortlessly the center of attention. The dress for a bohemian bride entails details like illusion laces, fringes or delicate floral embroideries. Another major feature will be bare or finely worked backs that play up the bride’s natural sensuality. In the Pronovias 2019 Preview Collection you will find boho-style dresses that will delight you if you dream of getting married outdoors wearing a bohemian dress that is sensual, light, and flowing.

EFIGIE_H

The Efigie dress, without a doubt, is pure sensuality and sophistication. This wedding gown is able to contrast sweetness with lightness. If you add an extra-large floral crown, the result will be stunning. Do you agree?

EFIA_B

The Efia design is also an ideal choice for bohemian brides! This flowing dress that floats with every step; with the right accessories, we will achieve a totally boho-chic look.

ECO_B_1

If you want a romantic and sophisticated boho look, we will complement it with large accessories, for example, flower crowns or a flower belt like the one of the Eco dress

astada_corona_b

Any floral element is welcome, but extra-large flower crowns are sure to work for the most daring and natural brides. The Astada crown from Pronovias is delicate and very sophisticated. Its pastel colours will give the bride spectacular romanticism.

ShowBackstage_Wish_PR18_ChBe_2C8A6884

In terms of beauty, a bohemian, natural bride shies away from heavy makeup and elaborate hairstyles. The guiding premise in this department will be very natural makeup, to be beautiful with a pure and healthy look. The hair will follow the same principle. This bride will opt for simple hairstyles, like loose braids, wearing it down or gathering it in messy buns. The natural look is in style and I couldn’t be happier!

The bridal bouquet will be like the bride… bohemian, rustic, wild, natural, and colourful. Think bouquets that take us back to nature at its purest state, as if the flowers had just been picked in a country meadow.

No doubt the boho dresses from the 2019 Pronovias Preview Collection will be perfect for your bohemian nuptials. The question is, will you be able to choose just one?! Come in and try them on at one of our stores!
