A Bohemian is often defined as, “a person living an unconventional life usually in a colony with others.” In a recent photo shoot with Cassandra Eldridge, convention was set aside, as the emphasis of a bohemian lifestyle is the importance of the company you keep. Deviating from wedding shoots and bridal portraits, this photo shoot still can prompt fun ideas for bridal luncheon or rehearsal dinners for rustic weddings. Stemming from heavy musical and artistic influence and employing free spirited thinking, Bohemian style still draws from romance, and can be the perfect theme for a wedding, event, or even a small get together with friends.
When considering a Bohemian theme, a few components can help anchor the look with a free-spirited feeling, while also allowing your own creative interpretation of Boho. With a heavy emphasis on setting, Bohemian themes often use a singular pop-up color that appears throughout fabrics, florals, and dress. Worn or decorative textured pieces paired with metallics fuse two different design components; for example, the gold tipped feathers hanging from the willow tree unite the transience of a feather with the weight of the gold. The tie dye pink tent is nestled within an open field; it showcases the scenery and nature around it, yet, like the gold feather, mixes ideas and materials not often used collaboratively.
Upholding the laid back and open minded ideals of the Bohemian lifestyle, the florals in this shoot convey the same sweetness and affection often held between friends. The floral arrangements include: Clematis, Scabiosa, Protea, Astilbe, Ranunculus, Peonies, Jasmine Vine, Anemones, and Spray Roses; the vast array of pink hues and textures blend to create a unusual, yet beautiful arrangement. With open blooms and open hearts, the Bohemian theme can fit any decor, style or event, just remember to bring an open mind!
