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.
