Jenny Packham & The Roaring 20’s
September 3, 2010
Jenny Packham and 1920’s styling was the order of the day for Emma & Adam’s wedding at Chewton House just outside Bristol. In fact Emma’s Jenny Packham ‘Joy’ dress provided the inspiration for the whole wedding!
The wedding theme came about by chance as when Emma visited
Wedding Days in Cheltenham bridal shop to look for a potential wedding dress. She hadn’t had much luck in her search up til then but luckily for her, a promotions representative from Jenny Packham happened to be visiting the store that day and had a few “one off” dresses for Wedding Days to show case for one day only. The last dress she tried on was “Joy”. It was exactly what she had been looking for. The bride then came up with the idea to theme the whole wedding about the 1920’s/30’s style of the dress.
“We also wanted the day to be as much fun as possible and for it to stick in the memories of all the guests for long after the day had finished” the bride explained. “We asked all our guests to dress up in the style of the period so that along with the work we’d done with the venue, the florist, the car, the cake, the hair, the make up and the live band we had something that captured the roaring 20’s.”
Thanks to photographer Albert and Emma & Adam for sharing their day

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."

"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. My Mum walked me up the aisle - it was lovely to have them both involved in the duties of 'giving the bride away'."

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!"
