Moody Boho was the order of the day at Owen House wedding barn! Gemma and Jamie wanted a boho feel to the day but wanted it to be a bit edger. It also and to be fun and relaxed! So moody boho was born. We used dried florals and grasses and macrame in deeper darker shades to give a moody feel. While still having relaxed boho vibes.
Owen house wedding barn in Mobberly Cheshire is the perfect venue for a moody colour palette. The barns natural wood and metal elements already give a warm moody feel to the venue. So I worked with the elements of the venue enhancing and playing on the natural darker feel.
The venue is great space. It has everything a couple could need to have the perfect stress free day. The 2 areas for both of the couple’s wedding party to get ready in. They have onsite accommodation and more space near by. Owen House is still a working barn so lots for the guests to see on the day and morning after. My favourite area as to be the photo shed! No need to go find the perfect spot for family and couple pictures they have perfect space with all your photography needs! The fairy light wall is stunning!
For the ceremony, we went with fairy lights and candles for a romantic feel. We used large dried grasses from just Dalilah mixed with pampas grass to give a natural feel. I wanted to create shadows and movement with the darker room lighting with the fairy lights and candles flickering. It really was a beautiful ethereal feel.
The ceremony room is next to the main reception room. It is turned into a chill area after for the guest to relax and enjoy a quieter space.
For the wedding breakfast, we carried on the moody boho feel. We used a palette of mixed grey shades and black for the base. Deep dark reds and burgundy for the main colour and copper for the accent. The colour palette worked perfectly in the space. Using a mix for the base meant that we could lighten the palette slightly by adding the lighter greys on top of the blacks and dark greys. Head to my wedding palette blog to understand more about how I create a colour palette.
Gemma and Jamie were an amazing couple! They wanted a design-focused day and was clear on their vision but they also wanted it relaxed and fun! I think we nailed it they are their guests had an awesome night!
Boho wedding with an industrial twist styled shoot. The city centre venue was Lock 91 in Deansgate Manchester. It is a lovely little venue and the whole three floors including roof garden can be hired for the perfect quirky wedding venue.
The venue has so many quirky features. It has an old-style pub feel but with an industrial twist. A great choice if you want the industrial feel but ready to fully commit. With all three floors you have lots of choices to make the day personal and really put your stamp on the place. Because of the chilled vibe but industrial features it felt only right to be the venue for our boho industrial Manchester wedding styled shoot.
We took along our hexagon arch, how perfect does it look in this setting? When I am involved in a styled shoot I always like to try something new. I roped Lucy at Little white attic, she is one insanely talented macrame maker. I explained my version and oh boy did she come through! Honestly, I was blown away! Just from me explaining what I wanted and send some dimensions, I hadn’t even made the arch to send pics!!!!
So, I think I may say this on every shoot blog but the thing I love most about shoots is sending over my design boards and letting the suppliers get creative and then seeing what they have created on the day. Another wow factor of the day was the cake from urban cake house. Lisa again more than smashed the brief, this cake was epic! I don’t like to use that word often as so over said but there is no other explanation for this beauty!
We had an amazing team of suppliers, I am always so thankful for the effort and creativity they bring! This was featured over on Boho weddings go check out the feature now!
