Wedding styling: boho-chic in South Devon

Boho-chic wedding inspiration on the shores of South Devon


From elevated clifftops and secluded coves to sweeping sandy beaches, places of dreamlike beauty can be found along the coastline of south Devon. Here, Mount Folly Farm, which sits on the clifftops overlooking Bantham Beach, and the sands of Bigbury-on-Sea, with the enchanting sight of Burgh Island and the iconic sea tractor crossing the rippling waters, makes a breathtaking location for a styled shoot.

Modern boho vibes and whispers of Morocco abound in this distinctively Devon setting. Natural and locally sourced pieces are key in bringing the relaxed, romantic and achingly hip scene to life: think rattan and soft cushions, pampas grasses and vintage rugs, while an angular ceremony backdrop frames the ocean in dreamily contemporary style. 

Accessories are key to this standout look and a dried flower bouquet and crown combining neutral shades with bold red and burnt orange pop against the vintage lace dress and draped sheath design. A vintage hat and striking, ethical jewellery, together with soft boho hair, adds fashion-forward and coolly relaxed flair, perfect for a dream Devon wedding by the sea.
