A Laid Back Vintage Inspired East London Wedding: Jo & Dan
August 14, 2012
Jo & Dan’s laid back East London wedding was a mishmash of everything they love with a dash of vintage style. Don’t you just love the effortlessly cool vibe of the whole thing? “We didn’t go out of our way to do things differently, we just wanted a day that was a mix of everything we love”, explained the bride. “From East London to pub grub and The Beatles to Art Deco and butterflies. We wanted it to reflect us as both individuals and as a couple and for our guests to have a great party.”
Although Jo’s outfit was vintage inspired she went for contemporary designers who gave her look a chic edge. Her dress was created by
ACNE and her statement headpiece by etsy designer Kat Swank. “Both my dad and my son walked me up the aisle which was lovely”, Jo responded when I asked her about her favourite part of the wedding. “My daughter and niece were also flower girls.”
“In fact the flowers were another passion of mine, I didn’t want them to be formal in any way and so instead I wanted to create the feeling of walking into a meadow of wild flowers. We achieved this by arranging different varieties in a wide spectrum of colours in a various vintage vases along the dining tables (all the vases were sourced and brought from second hand shops).”
Gorgeous! Thank you to Jo & Dan and their fantastico wedding photographer
Lee Robbins for sharing with us today.

A Quirky Alice in Wonderland Wedding: Nic & Ed
September 28, 2012
Nic & Ed chose Gaynes Park in Epping as the perfect spot for their June wedding. "It is the most amazing venue ever and their food is the highlight", explained the bride, "In fact people are still raving about it now, it was better than any restaurant I've ever been to! It's also a beautiful space, which didn't need a lot doing to it which was perfect for us. I just put a few bits here and there to make it 'ours'."
"My inspiration came from my love of cakes and Alice in Wonderland. Ed was very happy to let me go off and try and put as much of 'me' into the wedding as I could. My aim was for people to know if was our wedding."
Mod meets Moghul – Indian Culture & 1960s Mods: Aelia & Stuart
March 19, 2013
"Asian weddings are notorious for being huge, but we didn't want that", the bride continued. "We wanted everyone there to truly feel part of the wedding. This was going to be a party for our nearest and dearest. We set out to find a unique venue to capture both our sides, tall order! We looked everywhere: gallery
spaces, sculpture gardens, castles – the lot. We were losing hope until we came across a beautiful
National Trust site in Derby. It was stunning and we fell in love with it straight away. Not only could we
pretty much use the whole house for our ceremony, reception, dinner and dancing but it was closed
to the public and it had a history steeped in the Rajasthani era as the owner was the Viceroy to India.
Perfect! I had the Indian side covered and Stu had the design and architecture by Robert Adams
covered. We couldn't believe our luck."

Vintage and Fun Country Club Wedding: Kat & Andrew
October 24, 2013
Kat and Andrew had a colourful wedding and took inspiration from the bride's tattoos and of times gone by. "We planned our wedding by the rule ‘do what you’d do if you didn't know what was done’, as we didn't want to go along with traditions that we didn't understand or necessarily agree with", Kat wrote. "We both saw our wedding day as an opportunity to throw a massive party for all of our family and friends, which made planning so much more fun! It’s far easier to be creative when you’re not preoccupied with what you think you ought to be doing, or with what you think people expect of you."
Buttons, Belles & Polaroids: Angela & Paul
August 13, 2012
Paul proposed to Angela on an idyllic deserted beach in Galicia, Spain. This set the tone for their wedding day. Firstly a map of Galicia became the backdrop of their seating plan. They also had a polaroid theme with the table names, place names, cake toppers and invitations. They used images of their favourite places in Galician on the polaroids including palaces, fortresses and monasteries, and used them throughout the wedding.
A British Beach-Inspired, DIY Wedding: Emma & Matt
August 1, 2011
I teased a photo of Emma in her amazing short short wedding dress on twitter as soon as photographer David McNeil sent over this wedding to me. Whoaaa, I literally had to share it with someone (well 12,000 someone's) right away! I. Die.
"We got married in Bardsea (on the bay of Morecambe)" Emma told me. "It's my parent's village which is just such a gorgeous place near the moors and the beach. Even though we live in Camden and love it - we're both down to earth and love being outdoors and away from the city, so it was a natural choice. We got married at Eden Lodge, on the outskirts of the village, which has recently been converted from a Edwardian home to a small, minimalist hotel in some AMAZING grounds. We got married in the hotel itself and then the reception was in a marquee in the grounds. It was the hotel's first wedding and they were AMAZING. We can't sing their praises enough. The staff were EXCEPTIONAL and really went above and beyond to make our day perfect."
