London in the 60’s
September 20, 2009
this aaamazing wedding at Shoreditch House in London? Well my lovely friend Liz (like, real life friend not just online – we’ve been out for cocktails and everything!) just sent me this wedding at the same venue that she shot with Nadia Swindell this weekend. You might recognise the bowling! How fab is that – I wish I’d found a wedding venue complete with bowling lanes.
Does this wedding just scream London in the 60’s or what? The amazing and cute, short vintage dress and handmade veil were from uber cool boutique
Fur Coat No Knickers. Anyway you’re gonna love these so…
Thanks for sending these to me Liz and we really need to stop being so rubbish and find some time for that shoot we planned!

Eclectic Indoor/Outdoor Wedding: Lou & Stu
Modern Vintage Weddings
April 3, 2013
Fancy having an eclectic outdoor wedding? Well have I got the inspiration for you today! With a hearty dose of elbow grease and a firm plan of action, Lou & Stu coordinated their Sheffield Botanical Gardens wedding mostly themselves.
"I'm a vintage events organiser so the vintage vibe was a natural way to go", began the bride. "We’re both big 50s & 60s fans so we tried to combine the two in terms of the fashion but we didn't want a fancy dress wedding. My dress was late 50s/early 60s in style (vintage, which I had altered to fit) and Stu’s suit was a 60s style tonic suit from Mod shop Jump the Gun in Brighton."

Rowan & Neil were married at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, Renfrew followed by a Mad Men inspired reception at 29 Private Members Club in Glasgow. "The wedding ceremony was particularly special to us," Rowan explained. "My Dad is an Episcopal minister and it was a great honour to have him conduct the service in his own church.

Hairspray and 1960s Inspired Retro Wedding: Louise & Pete
This Modern Love
August 1, 2013
Louise and Pete's Belfast manor house wedding was full to bursting with cute, quirky and retro DIY details. The bride wore a polka dot Candy Anthony wedding dress and looked every but the mid-century starlet with her beehive hair do and classically gorgeous make up. "We definitely had a retro themed wedding", Louise explained. "I took inspiration from Hairspray (especially when it came to my hair!) and had a pink polka dot 50s style dress. Pete had a teddy boy-esque suit. We played 60s garage songs during the drinks reception and 60s girl groups afterwards. We asked all our male guests to wear bow ties, which they did, including my 5 month old nephew!"
