Beach & Boho
Beach & Boho
While weddings were once a formal affair, it is becoming increasingly popular to forgo tradition and embrace the carefree - with fashion falling in line. Tropical destinations and sandy beaches are now becoming the wedding destination of choice, allowing the ceremony to boast a bohemian look and feel.
To achieve the optimum in beach wedding style there is nothing better than the full length glamour of the maxi dress. Patterned or plain, halter or strapless, the beauty of the maxi is found in its ability to be glamorous or understated, yet always effortlessly chic.
If you prefer a shorter style then soft lace, draped sleeves and vibrant prints are a gorgeous alternative; think Kate Moss for a bohemian style icon.
Beach & Boho look
Match your accessories...
Given the ceremony will (most likely) be located on a sandy dune or seaside pier, this is one of the few formal occasions where heels are out, flats are in.
Delicate and dainty, the boho bag comes in the form of a beautiful clutch; think on-trend metallics and a range of embellishments.
Choose a relaxed, simple style with a touch of the decadent. We suggest a corsage headpiece, diamante headband or a chic fascinator. Steer clear from anything that isn't fixed into postion - the ocean breeze may play havoc with a hat.
When it comes to jewellery, we suggest opting for a mix of chunky bangles, a mix of looped beads or, alternatively, keep the neck free from adornment and enhance the décolletage area with long chandelier earrings instead.

For the perfect finishing touches, opt for a Bronzed Goddess make up look and create a radiant, sunkissed complexion. Apply a bronzer to the face, shoulders and décolletage for a shimmering glow, use sultry golds and browns to enhance the eyes and finally coat the lips with a touch of gloss. Lip glosses in neutral shades work best with this look.
