A 1960s Inspired Easter Wedding: Kate & Daniel

May 9, 2012

The Yorkshire wedding of Kate & Daniel took place in April at Victoria Hall, Saltaire.  The bride’s look was undeniably 60s with a bespoke mod style wedding dress made for her by one of her bridesmaids, and genuine vintage shoes, jewellery and a veil sourced from the shop her bridesmaid owns, Glory Days Vintage.

“I would describe our wedding as eclectic – vintage 1960s and a variety of musical genres including soul, rock and indie classics,” Kate told me. “We wanted a completely unpretentious day, we had no fancy wedding cars, wedding line up or long top table. I wore a 1960s style dress and we nontraditional wedding music (Soulsavers – Revival Wedding march, Arcade Fire – Wake Up, Wedding exit). We opted for no DJ and instead played music from our collection. It was a very music based wedding including Morris Dancers, a Wurlitzer cinema organ, a Soul Band and our own play lists.”

Kate decorated the hall herself with items such as chocolate eggs and bunnies to reflect the fact that the wedding took place on Easter weekend. “The table decorations were all designed by me. I included vintage 1960s coffee pots, different styles of mint green table cloths and vintage egg cup favours with foil wrapped chocolate eggs, large eyed chocolate bunnies and Easter crackers for children. The table plan was made by a close friend Toni Giles using vintage wallpaper and typewriter font for table names and guests. It was displayed in different vintage photo frames and attached to an antique door.”

Groovy baby! Thank you to Kate & Daniel and their fabulous wedding photographer  James Melia for sharing these with us today.
