You might think that a Boho wedding sounds simple?  I think Frin, Fiona's mum might disagree as an enormous amount of work went into this one at Amersham Cricket Club!

We made Fiona's rustic bouquet from peach dahlias, ammi majus, tanecetum, scabious heads, ivy, ferns and gypsophila with a sprinkling of birch twigs.  Her sister's bouquet was of gypsophila and both bouquets were tied with hessian ribbon.

Not really boho but definitely festival, Fiona arrives by helicopter - a suprise!  The guests then walk towards the trees to take their places for the ceremony.  Dark clouds had built in the sky so just in case the ceremony needed to be moved to the club house, we had our flower arch at the ready which would have provided a nice "frame" for the couple saying their vows.                     

All morning Fiona's team of boys worked on getting everything in place for the reception and ceremony.  All those gym sessions paid off boys - there is no way I could have lifted one of those straw bales! Manwhile,we were busy draping the trees with organza and ivy to create a wildly romantic setting for the marriage and then got started on dressing the reception tables under the teepees.

A pair of festival Hunter wellies and straw bales set the scene for the ceremony...

Loved the seating plan below - not sure who to credit for that one but it was definitely home made and something worth copying.  Very effective with metal pails of flowers and luggage labels attached showing the table numbers and guest names.

The bunting, wooden wine boxes and planters completed the setting for the reception along with tin cans full of wild flowers and lanterns on the guest tables.  Well done Frin and family for eating your way through tuns of beans and soup in the months before the wedding! 

Tip:  if you want to change the look of the cans or pails, they look really effective sprayed in copper or gold paint

Big celebrations followed in the teepees - although quite cold, I reckon there was plenty of body heat to keep the venue warm!

Nearly forgot the cake - a naked sponge hand baked by sister Pippa and graced by models of Giles, Fiona and Tinks no less!

The pictures say it all...so much enjoyment and love felt here.  Such a wonderful effort by everyone involved to create this wedding with a true Glastonbury feeling and we loved being a part of it, thank you Fiona and Giles - we hope you will be very happy together xx
