There’s nothing quite like a beautiful retro wedding, and Marta and Bartosz’s big day, sent to me all the way from Poland, is one of the most gorgeous I’ve seen in ages! They were married in October.
“We wanted something different for our wedding”, wrote Marta. “A lot of couples these days (especially in Poland) seem to go for very typical weddings but we wanted something more. My dress was a subtle yellow colour and we got really creative with our portraits. The vintage American airstream stands in the middle of Częstochowa (our home town) and sells the best hamburgers in the city!”

Elisa and Ricky were married only a year after meeting in a bar at the end of the Olympic Opening Ceremony (on 27th of July 2012). Although she wasn't interested at first, and after turning down his number a bunch of times, she eventually agreed to go out with him about two weeks later! "After six hours of talking that night, I decided I would give him a go and It’s been a whirl wind romance since. I still can't believe it", she explained.
Retro Cartoon Wedding: Daisy & Leigh
Tux and Tales
August 20, 2013
Daisy and Leigh's retro wedding themed came about because they knew they wanted anything but a traditional day. "We decided to go down the retro/ vintage theme, but I also didn't want it to be the typical ‘vintage’ wedding style that is everywhere at the moment!" Daisy wrote. "I also didn't want a traditional sit-down meal so we had afternoon tea complete with cocktails served in teapots. The wedding eventually became about all of the things we love from the 1950s to the 1990s! I wanted our wedding to be really unpretentious and for everyone to have lots of fun."
Retro Kitsch British Wedding: Lynne & Stevie
November 23, 2012
We may be well on our way towards the depths of winter (waah!) but I thought I'd just cling onto those hazy Summer days for just a little while longer by sharing Lynne & Stevie's June wedding. The quintessentially British vibe perfectly accompanied by vintage and retro touches was just too good to pass up.
Retro Bowling Club Wedding with an Ocean View: Nat & Sam
November 30, 2012
The retro wedding of Nat & Sam is perfect... literally perfect. I just know you're going to go nuts for Nat's nostalgic bridal style, their ocean view ceremony and the reception that looks like it stepped right out of the past.
"Our ceremony was at Burrows Park Headland, Sydney", explained Nat. "The ceremony spot was a beautiful cliff edge looking over the Pacific Ocean and located right next to the Bowling Club where we had the reception. We loved that the only way to get to it was via a very long, natural aisle sheltered on one side by trees, which we decorated with Chinese lanterns. For our reception we chose Clovelly Bowling Club. It was cheap as chips to hire, the drinks prices stuck in the 1980s, and the tacky bright blue carpet and a strange old picture of the Queen flanked by two Aussie flags above a stage which houses an ancient piano (which we tuned up and used!) were AWESOME! As soon as we walked in we looked at each other and said 'Yes!'. Oh, and it had 180 degree ocean views!"
Vintage Street Party by the Sea: Charlotte & Sean
March 25, 2014
Charlotte and Sean's colourful retro wedding was held at The Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis, with their ceremony at Forde Abbey in Chard. Their theme was a vintage street party and having the day in two places meant the bridal party got a ride in a stretch Chevy limo midway through, complete with retro jukebox pumping out some old school tunes!
Junk and Glitter Themed Farm Wedding: Ellie & Ed
September 6, 2013
Ellie and Ed wanted their June wedding to not only reflect them - their likes and loves - but to be a fun day for everyone, full of DIY details. The day started with an emotional ceremony at Aldenham School, Elstree and the reception was in tipis on Buckettsland Farm, Well End. "We said the whole way through the planning process that we didn't have a theme but looking back it was essentially junk and glitter", began the bride. "If you ever saw our flat, you would know that we’re not matchy-matchy people in the slightest. I love tack and have a big collection of oddities, plus I have an obsession with the stars and the moon and anything glittery, so I always knew they would end up making an appearance."
Glamorous Vintage Wedding: Cecilia & Stuart
May 15, 2014
Cecilia and Stuart's Glasgow wedding was pure vintage glamour - with a big dollop of pin up rockabilly cool thrown in for good measure! The couple were married at St Patricks church and their reception was held at Sloans, Gasgow's oldest bar and restaurant.
A Retro Americana Wedding: Ralph & Carly
August 22, 2012
Ralph & Carly love all things Americana and retro and so the theme for their wedding was easy to decide on. They wanted to incorporate the feeling of driving through America in an open top car - something they love to do in real life. Ralph had even proposed on a road trip through Arizona, one of their favourite places in the USA. "We love Americana and we feel that there is a big difference between what is retro and what is vintage", Carly explained. "We wanted our wedding to be all things that we love. We love nothing more than booking a flight and a car in the US and then exploring, although sometimes we end up in very peculiar places and cannot wait for daylight to arrive so that we can head out! For the most part though it's the way that we have discovered some of our favourite places. Each table was named after a hotel or motel that we have stayed in on our trips, there have been many others but these had the coolest signs."
