The ‘Manchester Vintage Collective’ styled and shot four different eras – 1920s through to 1950s – capturing the essence of each period through the flowers, styling, stationery, accessories, bridal wear etc. This is the 1940s part of the shoot, and I’m looking forward to seeing the other eras – 1920s through to 1950s – on other wedding blogs!

It’s easy to see why vintage inspired weddings are so popular. There’s something about vintage decor and accessories – like delving into an old treasure chest, finding beautiful sparkly things which aren’t just beautiful but have histories and memories of their own. I think that’s why vintage weddings have such an appeal, and Denise and Luca’s wedding really captured the essence of vintage for me.

Wedding photographer Heline Bekker submitted these beautiful images, taken at Covent Garden’s Kingsley Hotel (for the bridal preparations), then St Peter’s Italian Church and at the wedding reception at Brown’s Luxury Hotel in London. Bride Denise is gorgeous in her halterneck wedding dress and birdcage veil, and Luca’s chocolate brown suit with a classic pink rose buttonhole fit the vintage styling of their day so perfectly.
