Summer of love: a dreamy boho reception full of macramé details in a magical woodland setting

From bunting that matched a macramé cake topper to embroidery hoops hanging from trees, every detail of this shoot, styled by Ela Aksoy at Bochic Weddings and Events, delivered a handmade energy based on the fine art of string knotting. Dream-catchers and watercolour stationery added pops of magenta, turquoise and yellow, while golden candlesticks and pretty crockery kept the theme on the luxe side of rustic. ”We wanted to inspire couples to be a little wild with their choice of food too," Ela says. "Using a mix of antipasti, salads and bowl foods in a range of textures, layers and colours gave the displays real vibrancy, and we created more volume by accenting with fruit, herbs, nuts and flowers. It’s all about the detail!” Photography | Heline Bekker
