Vintage England Wedding II

And now, part two (See Part 1 here) of Stuart and Lauri’s vintage London wedding. I just adore those car and balloon pictures, and their cafe reception venue is so darling! Photos by Lisa Devlin.

From the couple: The reception was easy. We had been on a few really lovely day-trips to a fantastic little cafe at The Needlemakers in the gorgeous town of Lewes. The building, food and staff are all amazing there, and it was just big enough to turn the place into a sweaty little disco after the meal.

We all had a go as DJ as a lot of us know each other through the club night Stuart and his best man, Liam, ran together.

Our advice is to spend money on the food and the photos, and make sure your wedding has meaning and personality.

Vintage England Wedding

This Lewes wedding is so fantastic, it had to be broken into two parts! This charming couple, Stuart and Lauri, loved the idea of a fun, relaxed vintage style with personal touches. The couple did a lot of DIY planning and styling, choosing a variety of colors and styles for everything. The photos are by the talented Lisa Devlin, a UK photographer.

The couple says:  We knew we didn’t want strange, lilac matching bridesmaids’ dresses that got worn once (begrudgingly) so we let each of the bridesmaids choose their own style of dress, asking only that it be floral and colourful. This pretty much summed up the whole day, the favours were 70 different chocolate bars wrapped in a load of different papers, with wonky, hand-stamped name tags that doubled up as place-settings. Everything from the crockery to the picnic blankets, was just a big mess of colours.

I wore a vintage, linen dress bought for £125! It’s from a vintage boutique called Hope and Harlequin in Brighton, England. I did my own hair and make up, and the head-piece is from New Look and cost less than £10.

Paper Backdrops + Happy Weekend

Loving all the paper backdrops I’ve been seeing lately. These two caught my eye this week: one in a ceremony, and the other for a reception venue. Kayla and Newton, above, folded 1000 paper cranes and hung them on their ceremony altar as their backdrop, which contrasted with a dark curtain. Shot by Altmix Photography. See their entire wedding here. Below are vintage music sheet flowers pinned on a wall for a reception designed by Courtney of Merriment Events.
