Hello again lovelies. Last week you saw the first part of my whimsical woodland vintage wedding at beautiful Longton Wood in Kent, where I shared with you the lovely wedding invites and some stunning bridal shots. This week I have the stunning wedding tablescape for you, adorned with vintage lace and gold details, the beautiful wedding cake, plus lots more prettiness, to share with you. All set amongst the bluebells, enjoy...
This seating plan was created to show a beautiful, luxurious table plan on old, weathered, chippy vintage doors. I just love the contrast and it shows how you shouldn't be afraid to mix-up your look, and be loose with your theme, to create something stand-out and unique for your wedding day. The clever calligraphy table plan stationery was created by the talented Ipek at Mango Tree London, who hand writes this stunning calligraphy, and the gold works perfectly with the off-black.
One of my absolute favourite things to use for my wedding styling is vintage lace, and I adore all the lace here amongst the bluebells at Longton Wood. I have layered various lace tablecloths here, to create added texture and give a luxurious feel. I then added vintage brass candlesticks, popped amongst the beautiful flowers by Cabbage White Flowers, which were kept natural and simple in order to showcase the beautiful bluebells.
The vintage lace continued in my lace doily bunting and through to little pieces of lace, in a darker, contrasting colour, tied around the vintage style champagne glasses and around the gold cutlery. In addition to the neutral flowers, I was keen to keep the rest of the decor neutral, and also elegant and luxurious to in-keep with the overall feel of the scheme, so the gold calligraphy continued in the table stationery. Vintage chairs were used to show how it is important to think of all the details, and swapping your chairs for something a little more luxurious can be a perfect addition to help make your wedding stand out.
This stunning wedding cake was created by the very talented Kasserina Cakes and doesn't it look just stunning on the lace amongst the bluebells? Sometimes less is more.
Our stunning bride wore the breathtaking Apache gown by Jenny Packham, from the fab The Pantiles Bride in Tunbridge Wells. The lace overlay and stunning detail is just magical, and works so well for an elegant woodland wedding. The hair needed to have a relaxed feel and I wanted the makeup kept natural but dramatic, which was perfectly captured by Mari at Chase Makeup and Natasha Valerie Makeup respectively. All of these beautiful images were captured perfectly by the very talented Katie Rogers Photographer, who is a dream wedding photographer in East Sussex and Kent.
So there you have it, what do you think? I absolutely loved using my vintage props amongst the bluebells, the lace and the gold just worked beautifully don't you think? Would you like to hire any of these props for your wedding, or perhaps you'd like to discuss how I can help you create your dream wedding day, by styling it with all my vintage pretties.
