Hello and welcome back! Last week I wrote all about my favourite season - Spring - talking about the wonderful flowers and my styling in the Spring. This week I wanted to share with you one of my Spring tablescapes, talk about all of the elements on it and what story it is telling, along with table styling tips for you all. Read on to hear all and see all the pretty…Read More
If you are reading this, it sounds like congratulations are in order! It is so exciting that you are engaged and it is one of the most special times you will ever have. There are lots of ways you can mark the occasion, if you decide that you want to, and you could perhaps have a party, an intimate meal with your favourite people, a trip away or you may want to plan an engagement shoot to capture this wonderful time (or you could do all of these!).Read More
Hello! How has your week been? Last week I shared a post showing you one of my favourite moodboards, using a delicate, neutral palette. This week I wanted to show you what you can achieve from using a similar palette, and share some images from an inspiration shoot I produced back in March with a very clever and lovely bunch of wedding suppliers. This week is part one and I will share more next week. I hope you enjoy it...Read More
Hello! Lovely to have you back. Today I wanted to chat about using heirloom pieces within your wedding styling and show you some of my favourite pieces that I like to use in my prop collection, and that are often featured within my elegant and romantic wedding styling.Read More

So here are some of my favourites from across the UK...Read More
Hello you gorgeous lot! Today I have some stunning inspiration for you all, in the shape of a boudoir shoot I created back at the beginning of the year, with a very lovely and talented team. This shoot gives inspiration to a bride getting ready for their wedding day, with stunning lingerie and an abundance of pretty props. Do take a peek...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
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
For years now I've always gone down the traditional route of red & gold Christmas decor and whilst I am a traditional girl at heart, I fancied something a little different this year. Not drastically different - you won't catch me going all modern - but I've cut the red out of the Christmas tree, and it is mainly full of gold baubles, apart from one new special one that gave me the inspiration for my table...Read More
In December’s Perfect Wedding magazine, I was lucky enough to have a double-page feature, showcasing a styled wedding shoot I worked on back in the summer. This shoot was designed to inspire readers to use vintage at their weddings in a fresh and modern way, and to provide some inspirational images for styling your wedding reception. Want to take a peek at more of the images? Here is the wedding table design I put together and next week will be the dessert dresser and table plan…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 last post showed you lots of my lovely, elegant vintage props I have available for you to hire for your wedding or event in Kent, Sussex or further afield if needed.
This week I wanted to show you some more of my items, more specifically china and tableware, and show you some ideas of pairing them together with other items to create beautiful, vintage tablescapes...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
I love a boot sale and would probably go to one every day if I could / had enough 20ps. You can find so many gems of all sorts - fruit & veg, plants, kids' toys, bacon butties... but obviously the reason for why I love them so much is for all the vintage treasures. Vintage prop/decor hunting is at its best at boot sales and I have found some of my favourite pieces at them.
Let me show you some of my pieces that I use in my wedding styling ...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
