The Barn at Spring Farm is located between Cambridge and Newmarket, with a medieval barn nestled on a 17-acre working farm. The barn provides a bohemian style celebration surrounded by historic accents and natural beauty. This dry hire venue seats up to 120 guests and allows for you to create your very own wedding inspiration.
Beth & Amy from Miss Carlysle and Co are Wedding Planners and Stylists based in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, they worked closely together on this boho inspiration shoot, with the growing love for more of a relaxed style wedding they knew this was the perfect inspiration. Amy came up with the inspiration of a boho inspiration but wanted to show how this can be adapted with ‘pretty features’. Using lots of pampas / dried flowers by Saras Events Flowers. Amy from Miss Carlysle and Co planned & co-ordinated the shoot alongside help from Lorna Marie Events, Amy’s inspiration came from the love of a boho, neutral palette with lots of pampas to compliment.
Bewilderly - ‘Frankie decided to pair classic recycled frost acrylic with this gorgeous look. Frosted acrylic blends in seamlessly with a modern feel. I chose white ink across all pieces which kept everything light and elegant, mixing calligraphy with a serif font for the larger sign’.
For the ceremony, we wanted to add a romantic feel to the shoot by adding glass cylinders and pillar candles, they set the ambience for the day. We scattered a whole range of different sized glass cylinders under the arch, the pillar candles were the only source of light in the room adding to the atmosphere. We added our new chair drapes onto the limewash chiavari chairs, they add that extra bit of colour back into the room without taking over.
For a 2nd ceremony set up, using the white draping and copper arch, we went with more of a boho relaxed style with having white & gold lanterns with pillar candles, alongside pampas florals to add depth into the ceremony.
Danielle - ‘DMA Wedding and Event Hair wanted to create a hairstyle with the collaboration of braids, soft twists and free flowing tresses. My choice of curling for this style kept the length of the hair with straighter ends and gave lots of perfectly imperfect ripples of movement, texture and definition. All contributing to a free spirited boho wave. Interest was added with the subtle twists pinned back and textured fishtail braids cascading down. I strategically placed Rachel Sokhal’s hair accessories low and curving round to mirror the relaxed boho vibe’.
Cambridge Glitter Bar provided glitter for the shoot, bringing the extra sparkle to complete the look for the shoot, which created a fun & vibrant atmosphere.
Emily Chantal MUA fitted in perfectly with out shoot as her style is a relaxed, easy and stress-free style which fitted perfectly with our boho style.
Joey the Confetti Pony provided us with the confetti for the shoot, he truly brings out the best in the guests at weddings!! Joey is photogenic and loves the attention. All of the petals used for the confetti are biodegradable.
The first tablescape we did was inspired by golds into a boho theme with the pampas. We used our gold rimmed glassware (tumblers, wine, champagne flutes), gold candlesticks holders, neutral candlesticks, gold charger plates with white plates, gold rimmed tea light holders, white cheese runner, pampas down the middle of the table, finished with a gold rimmed table number with white calligraphy.
The second tablescape we used the textured champagne flutes, using the lighter boho charger plates, white plates, complemented with black napkins, with calligraphy table numbers, brass table numbers and large floral arrangements. Using the white draping & copper arch as a backdrop for the table, this is a trend we are seeing more come out at weddings, having a backdrop behind the top table to give it the wow factor.
The three tablescape we used more of a textured champagne flutes, with boho textured charger plates, white plates, neutral napkins, neutral candlesticks holders with neutral candlesticks, pampas dotted down the table, finished with frosted acrylic table names, menu & table number.
Saras Events Flowers provided the flowers for the shoot, she worked her magic with the pampas. Pampas is still very much in trend, providing the simple styling to the day as well as complementing all of the decor.
Lorna - ‘I styled the ceremony arch with the white draping and coordinated the various other elements and details of our shoot, in a relaxed way that matched our boho theme. The colours we incorporated, all from the neutral palettes to the place settings, the dried flowers, the dress and the cake, meaning it all came together. We lit the candles to create that perfect ambience and set the scene for our couple; as well as showcasing the works of all of the wonderful suppliers who collaborated’.

Cake Table Styling
Beth from Miss Carlysle and Co styled the cake table, with the signage by Cambs Lights behind the rustic, naked trestle table, with one of our boho charger plates and brass candlestick holders alongside the neutral candlesticks. This adds more of the wow factor to the cake. A simple cake set up, yet effective.
