Amazing New Furniture at AVH

The gorgeous new seating and dining packages from Anthology Vintage Hire are beautifully boho!

If you are based in the UK, and are looking for the most unique and extensive collection of reclaimed, vintage and handmade furniture items for your wedding, then look no further than Anthology Vintage Hire. With a warehouse packed full of tables, chairs, sofas, rugs alongside large and small props, their collection really has it all. Especially now, with some if their amazing new collection additions.

Owned and run by Amy and her husband Ben, the collection has significantly grown over the past few years. Born out of a lack of available vintage and reclaimed furniture for their own wedding, Amy decided to take the matter into her own hands and launch AVH.

And with trends and demands for lower seating areas, chill out corners and bohemian style wicker furniture ever increasing, Amy has been keen to listen to what her couples want for their big days.

“Over the last 6 months, we have been busy collecting some gorgeous new furniture to add to our collection. We have been asked a lot for more low seating areas for guests to chill out, and furniture with a more boho feel. So we have listened and we have created some gorgeous seating area which we hope you love as much as us!

Low seating has become a real big trend over the last year, and our low seating areas are perfect for you to enjoy gorgeous food, drinks, or just conversations with friends. They are also perfect as a kids area for them to hang out and play if they’re getting a bit bored of the speeches! Amy

With so many different seating options available, you can either book set packages which Amy has carefully curated based on trends and customer requests. Most packages also include styling elements too, such as lanterns, rugs, etc…so you don’t have to worry about all the extras…they are already taken care of! Or, there is always the option to mix and match different pieces and styling accompaniments to create your own perfect seating/eating spaces.

“Our Chesterfield Sofas are the perfect piece to add some warmth and richness to your seating. Paired with our peacock chairs they instantly create the perfect boho corner for people to relax in. Our new bamboo furniture is perfect for outside seating, whether you only want a few armchairs, or a large seating area, we can create the right package just for you and your event.” Amy

Anniversary Shoot: Jacklyn & Nick

Jacklyn answered a callout for a styled shoot, desperately wanting to wear her dress again!

The beautiful Jacklyn & Nick were married a year ago on the day of this shoot, September 2018. Answering a callout for models for a styled shoot, Jacklyn threw their names in the ring as she desperately wanted to wear her gown again!

Photographer, Ross Kyker, shot the pair at the Sekrit Theatre in Houston. We love the glasshouse images of the pair dancing…beautifully composed and perfectly romantic…what a way to spend your first anniversary!

From City to Cliffside

This stunning shoot by Nick Nguyen combines the best of the city with the wilds of nature.

We’re back, back, back again, and what a shoot to return on. Another gorgeous feature from the immensely talented Nikk Nguyen, this stunning shoot combines the best of the city with the wilds of nature.

“Being an Austin, Texas wedding photographer means you need to know the best spots in town that will offer inspiration to those preparing for their big day. That’s why I chose the locations you’ll see in this urban and cliffside boho styled shoot. It’s definitely another incredible inspiration shoot on the books and one that didn’t disappoint in the least! It was loads of fun to put together and even more fun to photograph and with all of the roaming around the city, this became the first shoot where I’ve actually needed a dedicated assistant just to carry my bag! Needless to say, there was a lot of walking involved!” Nikk

The team kicked off this epic shoot by hijacking the lobby of the Driskill Hotel to get ready. From the hotel, they started their trek throughout the city snapping photos all along the way. Despite being a super hot day to be out and about, the team were dedicated to producing the best shoot possible and we totally agree that they succeeded!

For the last part of the shoot, the team headed to Mount Bonnell to capture some breathtaking cliffside ceremony shots.

“I wanted to make sure we incorporated the sunset and I knew this was the place to do it! After getting some heart-stopping ceremony images we finished off the shoot by popping a bottle of champagne and drinking to another successful boho wedding inspiration shoot!” Nikk

Aegean Rue de Seine at Laguna Gloria

We’re loving these beautiful couple portraits and the focus on the stunning Rue de Seine dress.

What do you get when you cross the boho Rue De Seine dress of your dreams, with a swish grooms suit from Bonobos? Well, this inspiration shoot, that’s what! Submitted by the wonderful Nikk Nguyen, and shot at Laguna Gloria, we’re loving the beautiful couple portraits and the focus on the gorgeous, intricate details of the stunning Rue de Seine dress.

“Pulling this shoot off was a dream for me as a wedding photographer. Laguna Gloria is one of the most beautiful venues in Austin, Texas and I’ve been looking forward to this boho inspiration shoot for a long time now. To say that I’m happy to see the finished product couldn’t be more of an understatement; I’m ecstatic! This shoot had all the feels, soft, romantic and edgy all in one and to be able to capture it during sunset was a dream come true!” Nikk

Nikk explains that the inspiration for this shoot was ‘a piece of cake’ thanks to the Aegean-inspired gown from Rue De Seine. From the fringe details to the intricate lace patterns, the team were passionate about capturing the dress somewhere as natural, free-flowing and bold as the dress itself and what better place than Laguna Gloria!

“Our stylist and coordinator, Lynsie from Pearl Events, was an absolute master at pulling everything together. I was an awe watching how she took a captivating idea and turned it into a beautiful reality. Everything from the florals, to the tablescape, to the venue itself was an integral part that made this shoot work!” Nikk

Sweet Love at Addison Grove

We love a styled shoot…even more so when it involves a sweet real couple and their little cherub! 

We love a styled shoot here at Wed in The Wild…even more so when it involves a sweet-ass real couple and their little cherub! The inspiration behind this shoot was pulling in non-traditional wedding décor, like the wooden lanterns, minimally modern ceremony site and some fun extras.

Not only was the décor “untraditional”, so was the couple. The bride was pregnant with their second child for the shoot, and the couples little girl was also in attendance! Which makes for some ultra cuteness overload!

“In the words of Alex Moreau, our amazing coordinator that helped make this shoot possible, “this stunning one of a kind bohemian inspiration shoot in Dripping Springs will hit you right in the feels.” And I couldn’t agree more! This amazing inspiration shoot is filled with statement pieces. From the brass heron figurines to the vintage typewriter and cowhide textiles in the lounge, unique pieces are a hallmark of Alex’s design!” Nikk Nguyen, Photographer

What makes this shoot so unique is the “untraditional” aspects throughout which will really appeal to a vast audience; the bohemian lovers, the outside the box thinkers, the free spirits and those who want a day so unique that it cannot be recreated. Keeping the day personal is what this shoot was all about!

Boho At The Giraffe Shed

Gorgeous, dried flower and Rue de Seine inspiration from The Giraffe Shed.

After seeing this amazing Wild Ones Community workshop over on Instagram and of course, swooning over all the gorgeous details, we were so ecstatic to receive a submission from one of the photographers who attended the shootout.

Submitted by the lovely Rebecca Carpenter, this workshop was curated by an insane UK wedding scene team…including some of the finest boho suppliers; The Little Lending Company, Sass Flower and Cakes by Yolk. Dresses by Rue de Seine and Anna Campbell were lent by the amazing Jean Jackson Couture.

The workshop was the brainchild of Wild Ones Community founder, Nicola Dixon and was run in conjunction with The Giraffe Shed; a new wedding venue in Wales set up by Hannah of Rock Salt Photography.

We’re loving 2019 being the year of dried flowers and natural, peachy tones. And this shoot encapsulates a beautiful colour scheme mixed with pampas grasses and dried seed-heads, bang-on-trend wicker furniture and insane bridal styling.

“I simply adored the styling of this shoot by The Little Lending Co! Everything was on point; the flowers, the furniture, the accessories and the beautiful dresses provided by Jean Jackson Couture were incredible and a joy to photograph. Most importantly the beautiful real life couples oozed so much fun and natural chemistry!” Rebecca

Penny of The Little Lending Company has such a great eye for detail and is the doggone queen of bohemian wedding styling.  Combined with the beautiful floral displays and gorgeous cake, along with incredible stationery by Vine In The Wild, Penny created beautifully styled areas which united all of this seasons most in-demand wedding trends.

We love seeing these types of portfolio building workshops…and Nicola is a standout in the industry; well known for her amazing concepts and her black book filled with amazing suppliers who come together and pull off her overarching vision.

“I’ve followed Nicola Dixon’s work and her Wild One’s Community workshops for a while now and have always just been in awe at the calibre of styling and scale of production. I booked because February was a quieter month for me in terms of weddings and I was bursting to create some new and exciting inspirational content. I had been following The Giraffe Shed online on Instagram and just loved their branding, the story behind it and what they were all about!” Rebecca

The Giraffe Shed is a family-owned venue on a farm in Tregynon, Central Wales. Set up by Hannah of Rock Salt Photography, they offer something completely different to the surrounding wedding venue offerings…not least tonnes of personality and a perfect backdrop to throw unique, creative and highly personalised weddings.

Photographers are divided about portfolio workshops but we think they encourage a sense of community over competition which is vastly important in todays creative industries; indeed, Rebecca is much of the same mind…

“Wedding Photographers all have very different opinions about portfolio workshops but I’m all for them! Some of my closest wedding friends in the industry I’ve met on shoot days and workshops! I think it’s so important to chat with others on a shoot day and stay in touch afterwards with people you connect with, no two photographers will ever shoot the exact same thing and edit the same and that’s the beauty of photography. ” Rebecca

And when it comes to content…well, Rebecca sums it up perfectly…

“I love to attend various shoot days throughout the year as you are shooting content for YOU! You shoot the content you want to create and you shoot the type of content you want to use to attract your ideal client. You’re not under the time constraints of a wedding day and you get to experiment with ideas you wouldn’t usually risk at someones wedding. I think they are so important for your development, creativity and you get to meet some incredible fellow suppliers along the way!” Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca for sharing your beautiful work with us, and thank you to Nicola Dixon and Hannah of the Giraffe Shed for creating such a dream concept!

Warm & Cosy at Slot Doddendael

Full of gorgeous colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is warming our cockles!

OK…so the weather here in the UK has taken a real turn for the colder…what is this!! So when this warming, cosy shoot from the Netherlands landed in our inbox, we had to snap it up to help warm our cockles back up!

Full of gorgeous, autumnal colours, an open fire and beautiful candles, this styled inspiration is all that we need right now. The bridal styling is super chic, clean and elegant, and the groom-style is super dapper and bang on trend. From the food to the florals, the furniture to the amazing dessert table, we are salivating beneath our blankets!

“Normally the best time of the year to get marry is late spring and summer. But there is so much prettiness in autumn/winter weddings. Rich colours and the warmth of the fireplace are key ingredients in this styled inspiration. Autumn/winter weddings feel so much more magical, don’t you think?” Nailia, Best Day Ever Events

Enjoy…

Real Wedding: Daryen & Markus

A super fun real wedding set in a ghost town, Wild West open air venue.

After a week long hiatus, following a major technical fault on Jenna’s laptop, we bringing gorgeous wedding inspiration back with this beautiful, super fun real wedding. Daryen & Markus were already legally married the day of their ceremony and party, but that didn’t stop the lovely couple from sharing their devotion and love for one another with their nearest and dearest. 

Ross, the couples photographer, tells us more about this gorgeous couple in love…

“These two were actually already hitched before their wedding day. They wanted to buy a house and they had to be married, so they went to the courthouse to say their I-do’s. A few months later they finally got to have a beautiful rustic wedding with family and friends to witness and celebrate with them” Ross

Excited is an understatement when Daryen and Markus told Ross that they had decided on the ghost town in Searchlight, Nevada called Eldorado Canyon. It’s a playground for a photographer, with countless places to take epic photos. The day started off in the Golden Gate at Fremont Street in Downton Las Vegas, which was actually the first ever Las Vegas hotel. How cool is that?!

The bride made her bouquet from flowers at Hobby Lobby, and after the girls got ready they all headed to Nelson in a party bus for the wedding. The men got ready in the main building, putting on their suspenders and brushing their beards.

“Daryen hid behind one of the sheds while Markus headed to the big rustic barn for their first look. How sweet was his reaction?! The black box in his hand is his gift to his Daryen; a new gun with a love letter written on it. The ceremony took place amongst cactuses, followed by eating and drinking under the stars, a pyramid of Pink Box donuts, the removal of one curious rattle snake and dancing in the old barn” Ross

Daryen explained that her decor for the day utilised bohemian inspiration but also, a lot of personal touches. She has always been a big fan of old-school floral pattern, lace and the couple were lucky enough to have the perfect place to decorate for their first dance and dance floor.

Most of the deck decor was DIY, from the table lighting to the flower arrangements to the bridesmaids bouquets and the brides bouquet.

“It was our special day and we worked really well together making sure it was perfect for us.” Daryen

The couple chose laid back outfits, and we love the fact that Daryen didn’t care about her beautiful gown getting a little bit dirty in the mud…just shows that she embraced her day and had a good old time!

“I wanted something that would be elegant and classy, yet allow for a good body movement, and always having been a fan of classic lace my choice was easy. I also wanted something that would complement my skin tone, but conceal my tattoos a little bit, so I opted for a dress that had longer but see-through sleeves. The dress itself had a 12” train and was made by Wear Your Love XO. The flower crown was another personal touch of my own.” Daryen

Markus chose an ensemble which wouldn’t detract from Daryen’s dress but would be bold enough to stand out from the desert landscape.

When it comes to advice for couples arranging their wedding day, Daryen and Markus’s advice is simple…

“Don’t stress about it! You probably will anyways, I know I did, but it’s about being with the person across from you saying “I do” and not so much about the stuff you know your soon to be hubby is going to get wrong. Live it up, let loose, and have fun! You’ll only get to do it one time!” Daryen

Boho On The Farm

A sweet shoot full of bohemian, rustic charm and some little animal friends.

We’ve a beautiful, sweet little shoot on the blog today…full of bohemian, rustic charm and including some gorgeous little animal friends…and hailing from Hekluhestar, Netherlands no less.

Whats great about this shoot is that it shows just how the simplest of venues can be transformed with minimal input – some macrame details, florals and a great cake can make all the difference, and can transform an agricultural space really effectively.

Kilkenny Beach Elopement

Real couple Jordan & Freddie joined photographer Roshni for a beach elopement.

We’re loving how elopements are becoming more visible in today’s wedding industry…they used to be clandestine, secretive operations, but nowadays, so many couples are embracing the opportunity to get married in a small intimate ceremony together…saving the big party for a later date!

Jordan & Freddie shot this beautiful, simple but emotive elopement scene on Kilkenny Beach last November, with photographer Roshni. And despite the wind and cold, the trio created some beautiful, love-filled magic.

“A beach elopement shoot was always my dream and I had a chance to just do that when I went to Belfast in November for a weekend. Jordan and Freddie were just perfect for this shoot as they both are madly in love with each other and athletic too. They love surf boarding, playing football and are in love with Ireland just like me.” Roshni

Roshni sourced a dress from Susanna Greening before she left the UK, and the suit was the grooms own. The concept was really based on how a real life elopement would look like, come rain or shine; and the team certainly braved the cold November weather…exposed to the elements on the beachside shoot.

Amazingly, the flowers were sourced from Aldi on the morning of the shoot and hand-tied by Roshni…just showing that if your budget from flowers isn’t great, and you have the patience, you can create a beautiful bouquet on very little money.
