Tell me a bit about your business.
Boelle offers unique bohemian event styling and bespoke wedding planning.
What is a wedding planner and stylist? What do you do?
As a wedding planner, I will support couples in every element of planning their big day. From venue finding, to financial advice, sourcing suppliers to suit their tastes and personalities and running the event on the day.
As I stylist, I firstly meet with couples to discuss their themes and look over their ideas and Pinterest board. The next step would be getting to know the couple and reminding them how important it is to factor in their tastes and interests into their styling to make their wedding unique to them.
Together we will look through my varied stock list and discuss bespoke hand made items which I will make to incorporate into their styling.
Why is Boelle different from other wedding planners/stylists?
The name 'Boelle' means Bohemian Elegance. My styling is laid back, bohemian, mindful, sustainable, free spirited, natural and adventurous . I run my business how I live my life. My aim is to make Boelle a laid back, stress free and enjoyable experience that's a little out of the ordinary!
Tell me all about your brand.
Boelle is boho, creative, fresh and unique. I aim to achieve any style and theme to make sure my clients and couples have their perfect event. No matter how creative!
I hand make the majority of my accessories to tailor to everyones needs.
I use organic, up cycled and sustainable materials in the process in working on making Boelle 100% green. For each styling or planning package booked through Boelle a donation is given to Greenpeace.
If your brand was a person, how would you describe their character?
Boelle is a wanderer. Constantly exploring and looking for new places, ideas and opportunities.
Boelle is energetic, up for a run in the morning in preparation for the day.
Boelle strives on being different and loves bright colours, crazy clothes and anything wild!
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Spending my time surrounded by couples with so much love and positive energy. Boelle is my drive, my ambition and my ultimate focus. I don't see it as my job, I see it as my lifestyle. It allows me to be nothing but myself and I honestly believe that after 3 years of being surrounded by so much love and positivity has resulted in me becoming a more mindful and happier person.
Have you had any branding or headshot type photographs before this one?
I have never had headshot photos before, only natural lifestyle type photos. Despite being a confident person I usually feel insecure in front of a camera. I feel comfortable in familiar and natural environment. Anything to formal and serious frightens me!
Do you have any specific requirements or any specific photographs you would like to achieve during your WRB shoot?
Natural, fun, and creative headshots! Photographs of me working and doing admin. Something a little different!
AFTER THE SHOOT
How did you find your WRB shoot?
I try and get out of my usual working space and work with friends in a new environment on a weekly basis. Shooting with you Jenny was like working away in a coffee shop with a friend. I felt very much at ease and I believe this is reflected in the photos.
A big Thank You to the Kedleston Country House in Derby for letting us shoot in their gorgeous venue!
