A Jenny Packham, Vintage, Details Heavy Wedding {2}

Ok… bear with me… i may hyperventilate, for this wedding is just wow!

These portrait shots are amazingggg, from their little wedding car, the bridesmaid’s dresses {is a dress i own, my favourite in fact – French Connection Bex Dress}, the bunting, the cranes to the image of Audrey Hepburn on the wall this couple’s wedding is plain inspiring.

Thanks so so much again to their wedding photographer Jake Morley for sharing his work today…

The Flowers…

The flowers were by Alison Bentley, she did a wonderful job as we weren’t too sure which flowers would be available to us over the Christmas bank holiday. We made antique candelabra’s one of the main themes of our wedding. Alison decorated them with ivy and pearls and we used them as our table centre pieces.

Memorable Moments…

The whole day was absolutely brilliant and I think we are still on a high, however, the first time we saw each other at the alter was a great moment and one that we will never forget. We also loved driving around in our little Figaro, Marina (our wedding planner) had arranged all of our guests on the steps outside the venue as we drove up, it was wonderful to see all of our loved ones together cheering and waving as we arrived.

Beautiful Bridesmaids….

My sisters, Jessica and Nina were bridesmaids. Nina was 27 weeks pregnant. I think if the wedding had been a week later we would have had a bridesmaid’s dress disaster! They both looked really beautiful on the day.

The Cake…

Our cake was made by Sarah Lavender, It had one layer chocolate, one layer carrot cake and one vanilla sponge, it was delicious!

The Details + Decor…..

Our family helped us collected nearly 100 candelabra’s from antique fairs and car boot sales, we dripped lots of dusty rose candle wax over them and left them out in the snow to make them look more vintage. We also had white bunting strung from the walls and spent hours with our friends making nearly 400 origami cranes! We hung them from the ceiling as you entered the venue and they looked spectacular, they looked almost like an art instillation. Hanging cranes is a Japanese tradition that is supposed to be good luck.

We made the eating area look really intimate by projecting classic Audrey Hepburn films on a big screen in the room. It really tied the whole vintage theme together.

Advice for other couples…

If your reception is not in a hotel or established wedding venue get a wedding planner!

The Honeymoon…

We only had a few days together after the wedding so decided to go to Paris to celebrate New Years. We had a really romantic time cycling & shopping around the city. Most of the time was spent eating, drinking and meeting new people. We didn’t want to come home!

Thanks so much to Alex and Hollie for sharing their day today.
