Bohemian (Boho) weddings have a distinctly soft and romantic feel to them. Inspired by nature, the style is all about simplicity while accentuating the beauty of the details. There are no over the top floral arrangements or shimmering glam. Boho weddings are about showing the natural beauty of the couple and letting guests enjoy themselves. Katelyn and Ash’s recent Boho wedding at Northshore Harbour accomplished all of this and more!
Read on to get all the details on this Boho parkland ceremony and cocktail style reception!
The ceremony took place in the scenic parklands at Northshore Harbour. With the stunning natural greenery and the river just off in the distance, the natural background complimented the wedding party perfectly.
The couple opted for a short and sweet ceremony, wanting to make the most of the reception and the time they had with their guests. It was an intimate ceremony and reception along the Brisbane River.
The canapé/cocktail style reception set the dynamic of the night and allowed plenty of time for mingling and dancing. The layout allowed the newlyweds to easily chat with all their guests and the casual Boho atmosphere made the night fun and social!
The father-daughter dance is always a touching moment at weddings. Kaytelyn’s dance with her father was very sentimental to her entire family because of the song choice. With a medley of songs to the tune of Jimmy Buffett – a family favourite which holds a special place in Katelyn’s heart- she and her father had their special moment. Her immediate family joined in at the end to make the moment even more heartwarming.
When asked what was the most memorable thing that happened on her wedding day, Katelyn responded with- “The whole day was perfect but the kind words from my father, grandfather (Waffle), father-in-law, best man, and aunty on behalf of my beautiful grandmother- who sadly passed away before our engagement- truly were so special and memorable to me.”
“To my lovely mum! Without all of her help leading up to the day, it would not have been as fun as it was. To my mother in law who supplied the wedding favours of homemade soaps. And I can’t forget my gorgeous niece as flower girl who I think nearly upstaged me and danced the entire night away!”
“A special thank you to Ellie, our event manager, for all her wonderful help leading up to the day. She was so happy to answer any question and made the day totally stress free.”
“Northshore Harbour was really the perfect location and venue to incorporate the ceremony, photos and reception. The surroundings are just stunning with the river and parklands and the greenery inside the venue meant minimal decorations and flowers were required, something the budget certainly appreciated!”
Katelyn and Ash ran off to Singapore, Macau, and Hong Kong to celebrate their honeymoon. The two are now off living the newlywed life and enjoying everyone moment of it together.
