Did you miss yesterday’s unmissable vintage tea party wedding blog? Noooo… quickly, off you go and catch up right here: Laura and David’s Oriental vintage tea party wedding. Then come back because I’ve saved some extra images from the very lovely Hayley Ruth Photography to help show you how to get the same rustic vintage look for your own big day.

Laura and David hired a marquee for their big day but I think this look would work just as beautifully with a teepee or a barn wedding venue, don’t you? Here are the key pieces and projects which tied their gorgeous wedding style together. Hope you like!

rustic yellow vintage wedding ideas (1)The Tea Emporium at Laura and David’s wedding is a gorgeous idea – a healthier alternative to sweetie buffets, with softer colours than your average bonbon and an Oriental flavour – so to speak!


Laura and David are amazing – a gorgeous couple who poured their hearts and souls into crafting a unique, creative and inspiring wedding. They made paper fans as alternative bunting hung all the way across the roof of their wedding marquee, which was decorated with corn dollies, lavender, vintage china… it looks amazing. The table plan is an ornate vintage frame; the guest book is adorably vintage and surrounded by family wedding photos. Their overall look is beautifully rustic and lovely wedding photographer Hayley Ruth sent me so many detail images I’m coming back tomorrow morning with a second, bonus, Get The Look blog feature!

Laura has written an outstanding wedding report to share with us all, and it’s full of great advice, tips and stories for other brides and grooms as well as recommended wedding suppliers around Cambridgeshire. Oh and I love the story of how she and David met: on their first date after work they found themselves shaking hands on a spontaneous agreement to travel to Australia. 3 months later they went to Sydney together, and 7 years down the line they were married. And I’ve got all the images of their wedding to show you! Yay! Huge congratulations to a gorgeous couple, and big thanks to Laura and David, and to wedding photographer Hayley Ruth for submitting the images. Everyone – enjoy!

I couldn’t fit the word beautiful into the title of this blog post, but it should definitely be there: Linh and Tom’s wedding is absolutely Beautiful with a capital B! There are gorgeous details, light and summery themes and styling, and moments to make your heart melt.

From the illustrated stationery to the lovely little bubbles, through to the adorable little boy in a suit and then the magical first dance, the details of Linh and Tom’s wedding day are caught so beautifully by Peterborough wedding photographer Georgi Mabee.

Linh and Tom have written a great wedding report to share with you, so I’ll leave you to enjoy their story along with Georgi’s lovely pictures. This is fabulous – I hope you love it too.

Who proposed, and how?

Tom proposed at Gidleigh Park, a Tudor style country house hotel in Devon, situated on the banks of the North Teign River, surrounded by Dartmoor National Park. It was supposed to be a “birthday” surprise weekend away.
