Today’s wedding is guaranteed to bring a smile: the colours are stunning, the styling absolutely beautiful, and the bride and groom gorgeous as can be! Elaine & Matt were married at West Tower, Aughton, and describe their best day ever as “a traditional, bright and colourful day filled with smiles“.

“I wanted a vintage classic dress that would suit my petite figure. However all I knew was that I wanted some lace and a high neck, so I was very open minded.

“In order to give the illusion of height I went for a more figure hugging design. I tried on a huge variety and loved the whole experience of trying on all styles. However, when I put on the dress I chose I knew it was ‘the one.’ My mum could tell by the huge smile on my face.”

And… wow. Today’s wedding is stunning, divine, delicious and designer. Beautiful bride Saoirse wears a genuine 1960s style vintage wedding dress and looks incredible. William’s suit is Savile Row – and everything you’re about to see makes me so very proud to be a UK wedding blogger – this is just ridiculously gorgeous, and amazingly creative and personal!

Idea of the day: non-bridesmaids. Genius… I’m always a little conscious of ‘uniforms’ at weddings and Saoirse’s idea of her best girls bucking tradition is right up my street. She told me, “They wore what they liked. We didn’t want matching outfits for anyone although they all had matching wrist corsages from the florist.”

Think literature: classic books with art deco elegance. Think vintage: feathers, pearls and faux fur with a strikingly beautiful make up look. Think style: exquisite fonts and striking stationery designs. And think glamour: a deliciously strappy wedding dress, the most amazing setting, and a classic vintage car.

There’s even snow outside… our beautiful model’s accessories and flowers are perfect for a winter wedding and as practical as they are pretty. You will adore this shoot – I know I do, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you today.
