Amy and Peter’s wedding is beautiful and traditionally vintage, with lots of handmade touches. I was so pleased when Amy got in touch to show me their wedding – it’s full of ideas and handmade DIY touches I think you’ll really love. The antique lace Amy used for her bunting and tablecloths, and the antique lace doilies, really make for the prettiest feminine style.

Even Amy’s dress is a one-off (and doesn’t she look incredible?!) She bought her wedding dress from an American vintage shop online and had it customised by a dressmaker in the UK. With simply beautiful accessories it’s the perfect vintage bridal look.

Flowers are another highlight: Amy knew she wanted wild flowers in pastel colours, and ended up choosing hydrangea, stocks, peonies, roses, lilac, lavender, astilbe and wax flower. Amy’s bouquet was a loose, hand-tied bouquet, and she used an antique lace ribbon and a brooch given to her from Pete on an anniversary to tie it together. Gorgeous, don’t you think?

Jae-Marie got in touch with me in November to tell me all about her beautiful eclectic London wedding to Dan, and I’m so delighted she did. What a stunning bride… a gorgeous couple in fact, and the most inspiring and creative wedding day! The flowers are a treat, and there’s fabulous styling by Bellaboo and Beau, specialist wedding stylists based in Sussex.
