Glamorous Vintage Wedding: Cecilia & Stuart

CeciliaStuAssassynation-10327

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.

“We tried to keep the wedding cheap, cheerful and small”, wrote the beautiful bride. “We only had 40 guests during the day. We spent the most money on the bands, car and our photographer. I had seen Sassy’s work on a few wedding blogs and I knew it had to be her to photograph our wedding. She was so friendly and accommodating in communication – we knew immediately that we had made the right choice and that was only confirmed when we met her and Millie the night before at the rehearsal.”

“We chose to have the ceremony at a local church, as it is where I grew up. My grampa, who I was very close to, passed away a year ago this month; he attended that church for many decades. He and my gran were also married there in 1951. It was our little way of including him in the day.”

“Our wedding was vintage glamour with a touch of gothic”, began Eve. ” I love the 1930s/40s and that Golden Age of Hollywood. I wanted my style and dress to reflect that. I modelled my dress on one from LA Confidential with some vintage touches with my shoes, headpiece and the flowers. Dave is a little more into the gothic look. He wore all black with small hints of his style with the bat buttons on his shirt down to his studded shoes. We both had no idea what each were wearing, and I feel that our outfits worked great next to each other. We wanted a blend of both of our personalities into the day, with a touch of quirkiness. From looking at beautiful photos that Sam took, I feel we captured a perfect blend of both of us.”

Opulent Vivienne Westwood Inspired Wedding: Sashy & Dashy

Vivienne Westwood Wedding _ Anna Hardy _181

When wedding photographer Anna Hardy told me that she just shot a wedding where the bride wore the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress from the first Sex and the City movie, I was excited, damn excited. As someone who not only owns the entire box set of SATC but pretty much watched in a week straight when I got it, I couldn’t wait to see how a real bride looked in this iconic gown.

And the answer? FIERCE.

“Dashy was already living in London when we met”, explained Sashy. “I was still in Leeds at the time. It was New Year’s Eve 2009 the first time we talked to each other, and we just instantly clicked. I had just been offered a job in London and was moving down two weeks later, we were jumping around like drunken idiots shouting ‘Sashy & Dashy in LONDON!’…soon enough we were best friends. It always felt like there was something more than friendship between us and we’d sometimes have a secret kiss when our other friends weren’t looking! We talked about being together but said it was best to remain friends as we knew if we started a relationship it would be forever.”

“The thing that defined our wedding was that it was uniquely us”, wrote Anya. “We made nearly every decision together and that has helped form the foundation to our marriage. We started with what I had always envisioned for my wedding, kind of traditional and southern. I was a débutante for goodness sake! We then cut all things that didn’t make sense or weren’t okay with both of us and the rest just formed naturally.”

David and Kelly’s wedding was held at The Riviera Palm Springs Resort. The day have a classic 1950s retro vibe with monochrome details and elegant and timeless glamour throughout.

“The inspiration for our wedding was classic, retro glamour”, explained Kelly. “I love everything that embodies the 1950s: the cars, the clothing, the glamour. Women were so put together in such a classy way. I’m a sucker for the old glamour and how people dressed to a ‘T’ back in those days. People dressed up when they went out. They took pride in their appearances. Short shorts and flip-flops did not cut it when going out on the town. I’m just very classic and ‘old school’ when it comes to these types of details. I feel that I represent this ideal everyday (even though I do own a pair of flip flops and do wear them every once in a while!)”

“There was so much attention to detail back then, especially in the craftsmanship of the automobiles. I wanted to incorporate all of these beautiful details in our wedding. It’s what we love and it is what we appreciate. The most important for us was for our wedding to represent who we are as individuals and as a couple. I did not want to walk down the aisle looking like someone I am not. I did not want to be unrecognizable or look different from who I really am. Of course, the glamour was heightened, but I feel like our wedding was very representative of us. It wasn’t forced. We weren’t trying to be someone else on that day. I think you have to stay true to yourself, even when you are feeling pressure from others…. that to me is Rock n Roll.”

Completely Casual White on White South African Wedding: Kyle & Lauren

Kyle & Lauren Scott Fiona Clair Photography-237

Kyle and Lauren wanted a completely casual wedding and that meant no DIY! “How do people find the time?!” Lauren laughed, “We both work very stressful full time jobs and as much as I would have loved to do a variety of cute and quirky crafty bits, we simply did not have the time.” This attitude filtered through to the rest of their wedding with the simple cocktail style tables, the finger food and the bring your own bar.

“We wanted the entire wedding to be more like a party than a wedding”, she continued. “We wanted to keep the traditional stuff to a minimal and if we did anything traditional, like cutting the cake, we wanted to do it with a twist (we cut it with an axe!) For the furniture, we opted for cocktail tables and lounge areas rather than the staple long or round tables. This meant that there were no seating placements and everyone could sit where they wanted to.”
