Rustic, Vintage, Romance

December 9, 2009

The second UK wedding of the day is Clare & Dean’s classically beautiful rustic, vintagey romantic wedding. They employed the talents of my good friend Penny Merricks of Tigerlily Weddings to plan their day to perfection. Didn’t she do a fabulous job?

“I made all the invites that featured vintage lovebird stamps and ‘to have and to hold’ ribbon from Cox & Cox Clare told me. “Also I handmade the luggage tags for place cards with same vintage bird stamps and ribbon. I asked friends and family to collect glass jam jars for months, and we covered them with lace and ribbon for tea-light holders. A designer friend of ours also made the booklet that contained the history of the barn, order of ceremony, pictures of our parents and grandparents on their wedding days, the menu and the last page contained a quiz about us both… also using the same vintage love bird stamps.”


Even though the couple wed in the UK, the bride bought her dress at David’s Bridal in Dallas (hello exchange rate!) Her shrug was from Cornelia James and her shoes were Peto by Rainbow Couture. Clare’s vintage style matching pearl and diamante necklace, bracelet and earrings by Dulcie Angel and her diamante hair clip instead of a tiara fwas rom Glitzy Secrets.

Thanks to Penny, Julie, Clare & Dean for sharing this beautiful British wedding with us today.
