We have a wonderful styled shoot for you today from a host of talented South West suppliers curated by the Blue Fizz team! But first, we want to bring to your attention the reason behind this celebration of gorgeousness – the totally fabulous BOHO and RETRO WEDDING FESTIVAL at Bridwell Park.

This event is happening this month over Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th April and it’s set to be a unique and very stylish weekend celebrating all things fabulously Boho and Retro. Attending this festival means you get a chance to visit Bridwell Park, a beautiful Georgian House which has recently opened to the public following a stunning renovation. There will be private tours of the house available which is set in 120 acres of Devon parkland and home to Lord Ivar Mountbatten.

As if the venue wasn’t enough to entice, there will be goody bags and giveaways galore, a showcase of Wedding Marquees, Tipis, Domes & Yurts (including our fave picks World Inspired Tents and Baya Hire), Boho & Retro inspired music and entertainment, a pop-up hair and beauty boudoir, the Barefoot Catwalk, a Grooms Room, a Glamping Village and various talks and demonstrations!

Entry is free via ticket and you can pre-register at Eventbrite: BoHo and Retro Wedding Festival.

#BohoRetroWedFest

So back to the shoot! With all things boho in mind, the team wanted to showcase this relaxed style with a little touch of luxury. Bridwell Park, with its stunning surroundings and unique chapel, was the perfect backdrop! Plus the colour palette in this inspiration is perfection – I’m currently crushing on plaster pink in a massive way so my heart has been truly stolen.

Notes from Blue Fizz

Blue Fizz:

Our seating and tables were supplied by Emma at The Great Event who sourced some fantastic chairs from an Indian cinema alongside rustic wooden trestle tables. I fell in love with them and they worked brilliantly with the palette of plaster pink, navy and browns and the perfect contrast to the Lux look that we combined around them.

I dressed the table with Bridwell’s own crockery and satin napkins and oversized ties in hues of duck egg and green with the addition of feathers. The chair backs and table were decked out in volumes of greenery by our florist Emma at Brompton Buds who combined the plaster pink colour with the most beautiful roses and trailing vines.

This really does promise to be an Open Day like no other.

So who are Sami Tipi…?

Sami Tipi are a Midlands based tipi hire company serving the Midlands and surrounding areas. Inspired by the Sami People of Lapland, their tipis & kata tents make for an outdoor celebration whatever the weather and provide a breathtaking alternative to a conventional marquee.

The tipis are naturally stunning with their rustic wooden poles, which come to life at night with fairy lights, transforming the space into something very magical.

The tipis lend themselves to style as much or as little as you please, popular styling items are pom poms, paper lanterns and bunting!

This charming Edwardian-era country house, set within beautifully landscaped grounds, has been lovingly restored to its original splendour. This Oxfordshire gem features nine bedrooms, three large reception rooms, a handsome library and an intimate wood-paneled study.

Poundon House is privately owned and the family have held three weddings of their own at the house, so they really know what’s involved in planning your wedding and offer such flexibility, always trying to accommodate all your wishes, making each wedding very different.

The venue is holding a Wedding Open Day tomorrow – Saturday 11th June – and you can find full details in our Event Diary. But before you hop in the car, take a little peek inside and learn a bit more about this house.

Let’s begin the tour with a little history lesson shall we…?
