Quirky Retro 1950s Vintage Inspired Wedding

Retro 1950s Vintage Wedding http://amyfaithphotography.com/

We’re going cool, quirky and kitsch with a fabulous flirty retro wedding today. Vintage 1950 wedding lovers look no further for the most gorgeous of ideas.

Chelsea and Thomas chose to get married on the 5th September 2015 and host their reception at their Best Man’s house; Dunwood Hall in Staffordshire. The venue was the perfect setting for their home made celebration with vintage flair. There is SO much to love about their wedding. The epic naked cake complete with flamingo topper was definitely a highlight for me along with the sweet bow back bridesmaids dresses and cute ‘mint to be’ tags. There were sequins and blooms galore at the reception in pinks and mints, so very pretty.

Chelsea chose a dreamy strapless tulle gown with a show stopping retro hair and make up look. Thomas meanwhile went for a dapper navy suit by Supplier Love members Charles Tyrwhitt teamed with a stylish bow tie. The daytime celebrations were followed by a rip roaring party and it sure looked like everyone had a great time.

Thanks so much to Amy Faith Photography for sharing these vibrant and happy images with us.

THE PROPOSAL | 10th March 2013- New Zealand, Chelsea’s hometown of Hokitika at lake Mahinapua on a Sunday afternoon.

THE VISION | Vintage/Homemade inspired, mostly all about celebrating love.

THE PLANNING PROCESS | This happened inside Chelsea’s head! Accompanied by lots of Pinterest inspiration, imagination and word of mouth recommendations. Lots of family and friends input, which helped.

THE VENUE | Ceremony – Church of St Mary the Virgin, Bosley, Leek Road.

Reception – Dunwood Hall, Leek Road, Stoke-on-trent ST9 9AR – The best mans house.

THE DRESS & ACCESSORIES | Dress (Mori Lee), hair piece (Richard Designs), underskirt and veil all from Dream Dress Bridal. Dress alterations by Carol Baker (Bramhall). Shoes from Boden, hair and make up by Bethany Jane Davies (The Vintage Beauty Palour) and all bridesmaids.

FINDING THE DRESS | Only went to 2 shops with the idea of going to an outlet to buy one similar, but at the second shop I fell in love!

GROOM’S ATTIRE | Suit from Charles Tyrwhitt, shoes by Ted Baker, bow ties and pocket handkerchiefs home made by groom’s mother and sister. Made from Macclesfield silk.

Ushers – Suits, shirts and shoes all from Primark.

THE READINGS & MUSIC | Groom’s step-father’s nephew played violin in the church and we had a street band, Toftie & Bennett, (originally spotted by the sister in law) at the reception and then a home made playlist on Spotify for the evening do (made by the sister in law).

BEAUTIFUL BRIDESMAIDS | Dresses from Top Vintage retro boutique, shoes from New look, hair piece handmade by Gypsy Rose Vintage (Groom’s cousin’s wife), set of natural peals from little ol’ Argos for a small gift on the day.

THE FLOWERS | Home-grown by groom’s mother, arranged by friends and family. Bride’s bouquet lovingly made by mother in law.

THE CAKE | Home made by myself. The top tier was vegan for my vegan bridesmaid, so her and her partner could join in the celebrations. Maid of honour finished the decorations with lots of guidance. Cake was banana, lemon and vanilla.

YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER | Amy Faith Photography, the most perfect photographer ever!!

THE DETAILS & DÉCOR | All done by the team at Dunwood, friends and family, and just the sheer beauty of a magnificent building.

THE HONEYMOON | Mexico – Dreams Tulum through Thomas Cook.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS | Tom’s tears at the altar (happy tears…) and our first dance, which was to “I Want To Be Loved By You” by Marilyn Monroe.

ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES | Make your day about YOU. It’s so much more amazing when you don’t try to please others.
