If you’re head over heels for earthy tones, dried flowers and effortless romanticism, a bohemian wedding might be right for you.

As one of the most popular wedding trends, boho weddings are laid-back, stylish and beautiful. This wedding trend is perfect for free-spirited couples, who can either embody hippie, Coachella-inspired festival vibes, or it can be interpreted as a softer, more whimsical at-one-with-nature style.

If this sounds like the ideal day of your dreams, here’s some bohemian wedding inspiration from our very own beautiful North East boho brides.
