Our lovely Vintage Bride of the Week is Cassandra, who wore this beautiful late 1950s / early 1960s vintage lace dress for her summer wedding to Dave.
Cassandra tells her story here…
“David proposed on the last day of our holiday in Brooklyn in September 2013. It was a total surprise. We started to plan our big day as soon as we returned, knowing we wanted to marry in 2014 as it was a year of big family celebrations – with my grandmother’s 80th and our mum’s 60th birthday. We were also going to be celebrating the birth of our beautiful baby boy Leo!
We decided we wanted a more informal affair, something akin to a big Sunday lunch with friends and family. We knew the best place for that would be The Crooked Well in Camberwell, SE London. The food and drink there is to die for! Southwark Registry Office is a five minute walk and has the loveliest garden area for photos so it made perfect sense to do the ‘I do’s’ there.
We were joined by a small group of our closest family and friends, its was wonderful to be able to walk down the aisle with mum and be able to catch everyone’s face. After the photos we all gathered at The Crooked Well for our lunch and later we were joined by our evening guests for an evening of merriment!”
A beautiful dress, a gorgeous bride and a wonderful day! I’m sure all my readers will join me in congratulating Cassandra and Dave!
