A Beautifully Bohemian Outdoor Wedding
Boho weddings are always one of our favourites to receive and we love seeing how couples add a bohemian touch to their big day. Olivia & Tom opted for a natural, boho-inspired outdoor celebration set in the ruins of Sheffield Manor Lodge, with their evening reception hosted at Manor Oaks House.
They had a natural hessian theme with green and pastel tones, with all the decor and details designed by the very talented bride. So, take a whirl through the wonderful eye candy and be inspired for your own special day...
TELL US ABOUT YOUR VENUE...
“The venue is the ruins of Manor Lodge where Mary Queen of Scots was held during her capture. It has wild flower meadows and an Apothecary garden inside the crumbled ruins. It has the perfect juxtaposition of old and new with a boho feel. Very natural and free.
It is a DIY venue so your vision is free to become a reality. The ceremony was held outside and in the door way of the Turret House with the drinks reception in the Apothecary garden. The Reception was on the same site at Manor Oaks House.”
