This shoot, inspired by both vintage and vinyl elements was pulled together by wedding photographer Sarah Gormley. “I wanted to create a wedding shoot that would be relevant for passionate musicians on a tight wedding budget, so this vintage vinyl shoot features an array of DIY touches”, she writes. “For a guest book, we used silver sharpie pens on vinyl records, framed to make hangable mementos for the happy couple. We also took small black-rimmed DVDs and printed stickers for their center to make handmade vinyl-themed table number signs. As decoration for the bride and groom, we hung 3×3 black and white photos on an all-black clothesline.”


So what do you think? Would you ever had vintage records as part of your wedding decor? I love that although this shoot is described as having vintage elements, there’s also some bang up to date modern touches with the strong black & whit colour palate, and the model’s deep red lip. I approve!


Thank you to Sarah & her team for sharing today.



  1. I love the idea of using records as part of the wedding decor! We use them at home as place mats all the time (often get told off by older generation even though they were already scratched before we started using them as place mats!). Really fun shoot!

    I love the idea of getting music in there somewhere. Me and the future Mr are both music obsessed. But when I suggested using vinyl I got shot down pretty darn quick. Sacrilege apparently. Might have to make some fake records out of card instead.

    What did she use as her table numbers? I’d love to use something similar as escort cards!
