Vintage British Wedding

Rustic Weddings

There are so many things to love about this wedding. One of them being from a quaint little place in England. Captured by Kyle Hepp, this gem of a wedding has the whole package with plenty of steal-worthy ideas. We’re loving Sarah’s added polka dot tulle overlay that her friend made for her to customize her gown. Read on for more deets!

From the bride, Sarah: [I wanted] an informal and quintessentially British day in a beautiful rustic location with good food and wine. We wanted family and friends to feel part of the day and asked many to help out in a variety of ways. We also wanted something very personal which represented us and would be lots of fun. We therefore designed lots of decorations ourselves and asked guests to dress in their best vintage classics.

We wanted a vintage, British, retro, English village fete, colourful, inclusive wedding. The venue was local to where groom’s parents live, and was recommends by local friends from the Surrey Oaks village pub. We wanted a venue with beautiful outside space so the ceremony could be in open air, and we got lucky with the weather!

We had lots of DIY. The tea length wedding dress was partly made by a friend, bunting was specially designed and made, all decorations put up by friends and family who also provided some of the food. Stationery was all made by the groom. Local village contacts provided music and food.

Eco-friendly Handmade Wedding

Rustic Weddings

This bride’s decision to utilize a rental home for her wedding venue is nothing short of sheer genius, not to mention wildly eco-friendly. Diana and Ramesh’s guests all stayed on the property grounds the night before the wedding and enjoyed some seriously fine porch action with a wonderful view to boot. Thank you to sweetheart Erin of EE Photography for sending these photos our way!

From the bride, Diana: We originally envisioned a relaxed outdoor wedding with a touch of vintage. Ramesh and I loved water, so we wanted a lake, river, or ocean involved. I wanted something laid back but still fancy and beautiful, as a wedding should feel. My husband is very environmentally minded and wanted to keep waste at the bare minimum. We also wanted to support local businesses and used local, organic foods. And we loved the idea of a food cart!

Our wedding was completely handmade. Friends and family members all were in charge of different items. My wedding coordinator was a good friend, and my sister made half of the desserts the night before for our dessert bar. The flowers and bouquets were done by my bridesmaids, and I ordered at a local wholesaler. All the decor was the genius of my younger sister, and her and I worked for months finishing all our projects. We were on a small budget, so it was severely tight. My veil was made by my mom for $2 about 12 hours before the wedding from supplies at the local Wal-mart. All my friends and I collected mason jars and old wine bottles for an entire year.

The earthy dessert bar consisted of an eclectic collection of tables, cabinets, lamps, and a barrel. Antique buttons and books propped up cookies and cupcakes. The wedding and groom’s cake rested on fallen tree slices, and marshmallow peeps kept an eye on all the goodies.

Any advice for future brides? I think the packaged weddings are very enticing because they’re stress-free, but I just love the weddings where you feel part of the family, and everything has a personal touch.
