Nicole and Glen’s vintage wedding at Nettlestead Place, with Duntons Photography

Hey lovely! Happy Friday… and before we begin, lots of love to two of my brides: lovely Sophie whose mirror calligraphy was my project of the week, and lovely Ruth who asked me for a marriage certificate and then place name cards in calligraphy. Girls, I hope you get the gorgeous sunshine you’re hoping for! This morning though, let’s admire Nicole and Glen’s vintage wedding from Nettlestead Place in Kent.

With two wonderful historical venues, today’s gorgeous couple simply couldn’t resist a vintage theme. Nettlestead Place was perfect for their ceremony, and The Plough at Leigh was beautifully decorated for a welcoming and pretty reception. The flowers are everywhere, and really make the most of a lovely room. Nicole’s hair with little flowers is just fabulous, and she’s a picture perfect bride. Glen is her perfect match, and together they created a charming reception which I’ve been so excited to show you.

All of the images are by lovely Steven from Duntons Photography in Kent. Steven photographs weddings in London, Sussex and beyond, and his striking black and white images have stolen my heart. They’re timeless and impactful, capturing the beauty of every bride as well as the depth of love in a glance between bride and groom.
