Vintage Nautical Wedding: Tenille & Christian

December 7, 2012

Tenille & Christian were married at Maritime Museum in Fremantle, West Australia. The venue totally set the tone for their vintage nautical themed wedding. “I found working with our theme to be quite easy”, explained Tenille. “The colour scheme worked and it was easy to pinpoint and find things to match our theme. If you have Photoshop and some time to be creative then you can save loads of money doing things like menus and table names yourself. I also highly recommend a cocktail party wedding as guests get to mingle and no one is stuck at a table. It really livens up the atmosphere to have guests being able to stand, dance and have fun in general.”

“I have a love affair for the 50s and 60s style and just love how the ladies and gents back then made that super extra effort. I love the large hoop skirts, fringe bangs, rockabilly curls and the fact that men were real gentlemen”, she continued. “I run my own online vintage fashion business which also gave me some inspiration. These eras were so elegant, had amazing bold hair styles and defined make up styles which is what I wanted for our wedding. As soon as we visited the museum we loved it. It was just amazing. It is on the water surrounded by the harbour and there boats inside the museum. We thought it would be perfect to mash these two styles together and lucky for us it worked!”

Utterly beautiful. Thank you to Tenille & Christian and their wedding photographers I Heart Weddings for sharing with us today.
