Thanks for blowing in to join me at the end of a stormy week here in England. Today I have a fabulous vintage-inspired wedding to share with you: the lovely Chelsea and Chris.
Chelsea and Chris wed earlier this year: the crowning moment in a romance that started when they met aged sweet sixteen. In stunning 1950s pastel lace, Chelsea was the perfect vintage bride. Here’s the gorgeous moment when she reveals the dress to Chris…
And here’s the beautiful bride, so no wonder he looks like the cat that got the cream!
When she visited my studio, Chelsea had already seen many dresses. In her own words,
“We had spent a whole day trying on dresses and while enjoyable it was unsuccessful…until our last visit to Heavenly Vintage Brides. Helena had so many gorgeous dress and I picked out sooo many to try on, but it happened…THE dress. I never really believed in that moment, but it happened.
I didn’t cry but my face hurt from how much I smiled and my IQ seemed to drop several points as I kept repeating ‘Its just so…lovely. It’s so….lovely’ over and over again. Just two days later my Mum was dragged to London and we brought the dress. My Dad’s face when he saw me in it totally confirmed that it was ‘the one’.”
And for a dusting of edgy glamour, she teamed these with an Alexander McQueen-inspired ‘knuckle-duster’ clutch bag.
Just like the dress, every detail at this gorgeous wedding was a perfect expression of Chelsea’s unique and quirky style. From Chris’ Lego pirate cufflinks from Crimson King, to the cute cake pops by Scrumptious Pops…
And now, I’ll let some more of Chelsea’s dreamy pictures do the talking… Enjoy!
I hope to see you again soon!
