Funky, Punky, British {Part 2 – Wedding}

After seeing Emma & James’ funky engagement session I couldn’t wait to see the wedding and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Emma dress was a 1930’s inspired design that was handmade for her in champagne crepe backed satin by ‘Rags to Bitches’ which is a vintage boutique on Tib Street in the Northern Quarter of Manchester. She teamed this will gorgeous peach, sequinned shoes from Karen Millen and a gorgeous vintage style headband which was made from glass beads and pearls from a bridal shop in Poynton, Cheshire called Timeless Bride.

” I travelled to church (St James’ Chuch Didsbury) in a silver hackney cab, my bouquet was a column design of white calla lilies,” Emma told me. ” My uncle read Shakespeare Sonnet 116 during the service. Our reception was held at the Whitworth Art Gallery.  We ate sausage and mash for the wedding breakfast and chicken curry and prawn stirfry in the evening.  Our first dance was Everlong by the Foo Fighters (a line of which is tattooed on my arm).  We didn’t have a band but had a DJ playing our favourite music (strictly no ‘wedding classics’) which consisted of amongst others Metallica, System of a Down, Queens of the Stone Age and Rage Against the Machine. 

I was the last one to leave at 1am.”

I LOVE it! Thanks to Tobiah for sharing these great images for the features and to Emma & James for sending me all the info. Mwah!
