Happy Valentine's! Or happy day before or day/s after Valentine's, depending on when you are reading this! I'm not a fan of going out for dinner for this day of love. It is often over-priced and you're crammed into a table right next to another couple, so we usually stay in…Read More
If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I love flowers. I feature them heavily, love to have fresh flowers as much as possible and my favourite gift is a bouquet full of soft and pretty blooms. Now obviously this is pretty handy working in the wedding industry! Flowers are a big part of my wedding designs that I create for my brides and grooms…Read More
Hello my lovelies. This week I wanted to show you some inspiration. One of my favourite parts of the initial stages of working with brides & groom to be is creating moodboards for them. I love to gather inspiration to start the design process, and it's a great starting point to begin our vision for the styling of their wedding day…Read More
Happy new year, lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I wanted to write about my 2017, to show you all that went on for Vintage Amy last year, as it was my first year in business and rather a good one, if I do say so myself! So below is a round-up of some of the highlights of my year, from styled shoots to real weddings and beyond...Read More
I love vintage (obviously and phew, you say - it would be silly doing what I did if I didn't!) for many reasons - for its character, history, charm, stories behind the pieces, design details, and I just don't believe modern pieces are the same in quality and sophistication. But another reason I love vintage is that it means a lot of different things to different people...Read More
Hello again, lovelies. Thanks for popping by! In this week's post I'm giving you some styling tips that apply for weddings, interiors & home styling, and can generally be applied for all sorts of styling.
Take a peek below for my 8 tips, along with pics to show you what I mean, and let me know what you think...Read More
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...Read More
I'm so excited to be sharing these pictures with you from a styled shoot I designed and styled back in April with a really lovely, and very talented, team. Set in the beautiful Longton Wood in Kent, I chose to use my darling vintage props and wedding decor in a unique setting, and show you how to use vintage and still get a very elegant, romantic and whimsical feel for your wedding day.
I absolutely loved creating this wedding inspiration shoot, and I hope you love it as much as me. This week I've included the pics showing you the beautiful invites and bridal scenes...Read More
My house is full to the brim of vintage bits & bobs, a lot being decor but mostly at the moment it is full of my hiring items! In the cupboards, on display, in my external storage unit, in the shed... you name it there is a place for my vintage treasures. When you do a job like mine you can't help but look out for treasure wherever you go. If I pop to the shops, I have a nose in a charity shop, if I'm going to a boot sale I keep my eyes peeled for vintage knick-knacks that will make perfect props. And if I'm away for a weekend or even visiting friends & families, I scout out the towns for pretty shops & cafes for vintage inspiration and possible purchases...Read More
What better day to share with you my wedding photos than on my wedding anniversary!? Yep, happy 4 years to us, and time really does fly - I can't believe it, it only feels like 1-2 years ago! We had the most beautiful day, it was personal, romantic and fun - everything I believe a wedding should be. Our guests still talk about it, and what more can you ask for!? Looking through these photos for this post makes me feel so happy. I hope you'll get some inspiration from them for your big day, or just enjoy the pics!Read More
I'm a firm believer that you shouldn't leave your best in the cupboards to gather dust. Get those pretties out, use them and display them, and if you're anything like me, you'll love to use them for pretty pictures too!
As I have an array of vintage china at my home, some special bits of my own and items from my prop cupboard that I like to use when they're not being hired out, I love to have my tea & cake in/on them, and to use them as often as I can.Read More
As I mentioned in my last blog, where I showed you how I styled my Easter dinner table, I absolutely love styling tables. It's my favourite part of the styling set-up for weddings and I get totally lost in the moment when I'm doing them. Here are 7 of my recent favourite set-ups, all using vintage items of course...Read More
Controversial I know, but I think I prefer styling at Easter to styling at Christmas. I don't do quite as much to the house overall, but I just love the Easter colours, the flowers and the food that you can have alongside it! Plus my pretty vintage china collection complements it all perfectly.Read More
