Meet Jade, the wedding planner behind White Bohème Weddings and her shoot with The Brand Studio creating a contemporary wedding table design to inspire couples looking for modern wedding inspirations!

On trend Pampas Grass brings that boho edge that we love too!
Tell us about White Bohème Weddings
White Bohème weddings is a boutique wedding planning company specialising in planning intimate destination weddings in on trend, yet free spirited locations. I like to work with stylish couples looking for a slightly bohemian yet luxurious wedding. This is where the name White Bohème is derived, Bohème being the free-spirited vibe and White being a nod to the luxe, contemporary element.
Destination weddings are very personal and intricate, each one can be completely different so I form bespoke packages, created organically with my clients, that completely cater to their individual needs. Whether they need help with a last-minute elopement in the middle of a rainforest or a 200 guest wedding, spanning three days in Ibiza, I can help.
What is your favourite wedding trend at the moment?
I love how couples are using succulents, wheat and pampas as an alternative to flowers. They offer a more natural aesthetic, a look perfectly suited to destination weddings and are part of a trend that I think will continue to evolve in the future.
What colour palettes do you love for weddings right now?
My absolute favourite palette is made up of creamy nudes, crisp whites, mocha and soft beiges. Nude colours mixed with white is perfect for a destination wedding. The neutral coloured flowers and decor don’t detract from the stunning backdrop, which is usually a focal point for couples marrying abroad.
What are your top tips on how couples can bring their creative flair into planning their wedding?
The best way for couples to stamp some creativity into their wedding is to keep everything very personal and to stay true to their style, this will really shine through on the day.
The easiest way to use their creativity is with their attire. Brides should embrace their personal style and not feel like they have to conform to tradition. There are some fabulous designers such as Rue De Seine that offer slightly alternative dresses with a real bohemian feel or One Day Bridal which are absolutely gorgeous and really allow brides to show off their personality.
I tell my clients to think hard about things that make them unique as a couple and incorporate that creatively into their day. This could be something simple like having their favourite cocktails served at the aperativo or they could utilise one of their talents, for example if they are artistic they could draw a map to include with their invitations. This is particularly helpful with a destination wedding which may have multiple venues spread over several days.
What are your top tips for couples wanting to plan a Bohemian wedding with a contemporary edge?
I think to get the balance right the key is to go bohemian with the flowers and venue, and then clean and contemporary with the smaller details and the attire.
Just envision flowers arranged in a free and wild style, adorning a venue that boasts an outstandingly beautiful backdrop, such as the Fjords in Norway or a secluded bay in Uluwatu, Bali and long tables made by local craftsmen for guests to feast on seasonal delights.
All of this paired with a simple, yet beautiful silk dress from French designer, A La Robe, minimalist stationary with clean lines and simple text, neutral coloured plates and Scandinavian style cutlery.
Do you have any key details or trend predictions?
As a destination planner, I would say weddings will start to get bigger as more guests are willing to travel afar for a wedding, probably due to the availability of low cost flights. These will continue to be multi day events with post wedding day parties and welcome cocktails continuing to grown in popularity.
I think the minimalist trend is here to stay as it looks great in photos and doesn’t date. Couples are starting to realise that less is sometimes more which is translating into some gorgeous, pared back days.
