A vintage wedding with an Italian twist!

Amanda and Anton had two wedding receptions and mixed vintage wedding ideas from two cultures to create two of the most memorable days of their lives!

Today’s vintage wedding blog with an Italian twist will inspire many of you I’m sure. There’s beauty in the details: soft, elegant and classy vintage roses, table decorations and styling (not to mention Amanda’s stunning wedding dress and Anton’s super classy suit).

There’s also a real atmosphere of celebration. As Amanda told me, “Italian weddings are all about sharing good food with your family and friends” – and there’s a link at the end of this page where you can see much more of their wedding.

The lovely couple chose Hannah of Lifeline Photography to capture their vintage wedding on camera, and she did a beautiful job. I first met Hannah at top wedding photographer Chris Hanley’s enchanting and creative studio space near Manchester, the Riverside Studios, and I can tell you as well as being passionate about her wedding photography she’s also a really gorgeous and lovely and genuine lady. She photographs weddings all around the Nottingham area – so get in touch! (Read this first though 🙂

What did you wear?

Anton wore a light suit with a Du Champ open collar shirt and I had an Angela Vickers gold French lace over ivory silk fishtail fitted dress with amazing Vivienne Westwood for Melissa shoes.

What were your highlights?

Walking through the streets of Sorrento after our ceremony and all the locals and shop keepers congratulating you as you walk by. Driving down the beautiful arched driveway in our vintage car at Thrumpton Hall to be greeted by all our Family and Friends

Vintage wedding styling and details

Thrumpton is a stunning manor house dating back to the 16th century with beautiful gardens and a lake with a small but lovely boat house. We chose to use lots of lovely English roses and candelabras to fit in with the beautiful setting of the English Country Garden. Italian weddings are all about sharing good food with your family and friends so the catering was very important to us. I made some sweetie trees myself to keep the little ones happy.

Music and entertainment:

We had a band called The Somebodys provided by Ear Candy – they were very professional, good fun and really made the evening.

Memorable wedding moments:

All of it, from the cars arriving at Sorrento to the taxi home in England after the reception – they truly were 2 days I will never ever forget.

My little girl Arabella who is 2 insisting her Daddy hold her all through our ceremony which just made it so much more a family moment. My veil blowing away at Thrumpton and everyone trying to catch it.

Again Arabella trying to steal the limelight taking the mic off Daddy halfway through his speech. My brother’s face when he saw me for the first time and how proud he was walking me down the aisle. My three brothers all in the same place twice.

Wedding advice:

Make the most of every moment from trying on dresses (string it out) to choosing flowers to the actual day. Do it your way it is YOUR DAY no one else’s. And you’ll only do it once. Make it personal not typical!

      Hi Fiona, either the cake or the Ferrero Rocher tree – pause for a moment and imagine that in nature! – would have convinced me to share this wedding on the blog. Never mind that the whole day is absolutely gorgeous 🙂 Wonderful, isn’t it?! x
