Hannah & Robs Vintage wedding

I know i say this practically every time, but this really is one of my favourite weddings to date.

Sheffield based couple Hannah and Rob, opted for a vintage wedding with a retro twist as their fabulous theme.
Combining traditional blooms in quirkier colours, and adding in more retro flowers such as craspedia and gyp, the aim was to give a vintage/nostalgic feel with an edge of coolness without being too girlie/pretty.
The guests at the evening reception had a fun surprise with our dressed cake stands in each table which had the top tier dressed with old skool sweets like flying saucers !
The beautiful china was supplied by my friend Julie at vintage and cake who had her hands full with baking all of the lovely cakes at the afternoon tea/wedding breakfast and with also doing the styling on the day.
Photographs were kindly provided to us by photographer Richard Newman (richard.newman@hotmail.com) and also Ben at Vintage and Cake.
A big thankyou to the lovely Leopold Hotel in Sheffield for being so helpful on the day.

This is a flower that is definately making a comeback. I always have loved these pretty white flowers, but unfortunately like certain other flowers, supermarkets has devalued gypsophlia by including it in plain uninspiring bunches which has caused many of people to 'go off' it.

Used in the right way, 'gyp' is no longer a simple filler flower, it can be made to look vintage or contemporary, used en masse it looks so impactive , and right now we are using it alot in wedding work. Watch this space as the trend catches on . You heard it here first.

Brings back memories

A classic handtied bouquet to coordinate with dusky pink bridesmaid dresses - cool water roses, lisianthus, bouvardia and pearls.
I also had these roses in my own wedding bouquet, makes me feel abit nostalgic , happy days .

A pink and black wedding

Something a little different to share with you, a pink and black themed wedding that we recently did. A big marquee, tall vases, fish bowls, pink chrysanthemum balls and black cala lilies. It looked fantastic.

The bridal bouquet..

And tied posies of dolce vita and amalia roses for the maids...
