Hello lovely people. Today I’m popping back on to chat to you all about setting the tone for your wedding day.

So I’m going to give you some hints and tips on working on this from the very beginning and throughout your wedding planning, in order to have the most elegant and romantic wedding day of your dreams.Read More
I adore flowers, I would love to have them all over my house all of the time and I feel so lucky that I get to see and play with so many beautiful ones with The Timeless Stylist. I adore flowers in the Spring time - ranunculus and blossom in early Spring and peonies in late Spring. I also love hydrangeas, dahlias, roses and too many to list any more! If you give me a bunch of flowers, I will be your friend forever!Read More
Hello you lovely lot, today I'm chatting to you about one of my favourite things to do - moodboarding. But this time I created one that is much more fun than my usual electronic versions, it was created from cut outs, flowers, ribbons & material, and colour swatches. Let me show you what I created and how I put it together, and perhaps you can have a go at creating one too?Read More
Hello you lovely lot, this week I'm talking all about my rebrand to The Timeless Stylist and why I chose to change my name and grow. I'm not going to chat too much about why my old name and branding was not working, but more about why I chose my new name, how much I love my new branding and what I will be up to as The Timeless Stylist...Read More
Hello lovelies, I'm back this week with some inspiration for you all for a timeless and elegant wedding. Back in January I designed and styled an editorial shoot with a wonderful team of fantastic wedding suppliers, and it was featured on BLoved blog a few weeks ago. Today I am sharing some of my favourite shots with you and explaining how I created it...Read More
I'm so sorry it's been a couple of weeks since my last post - time is running away with me at the moment! But today I'd love to chat to you about my love of heirlooms and how I love to use them within my wedding design and styling…Read More
Hello you lovely lot! It's been quite a while since I did a blog on my favourite table place settings, so this week I am doing just that! I have chosen 6 of my favourite table place settings that I have done over the last year, both for weddings and at home, and wrote a little bit about them here...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
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.

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 you know, I'm all for a neutral palette, or pretty pastels, for your wedding day. But here at Vintage Amy I'm not afraid to try something a little different to give all you bride-to-bes and vintage lovers some further inspiration for your wedding day, event or just for fun.
So a couple of months ago a wonderful team and I packed up our things to spend the day at Eridge Village Hall, where we were to transform the venue into a riot of colour with bold and fun looks for your big day, of course using my beloved vintage. I crafted a few little things for it too, and here you can see the results...Read More
