In search of something old? The Vintage Wedding Dress Company sells authentic gowns as well as fur capes, antique lace and other wedding accessories. Restore, reinvent and recreate with the help of Heirloom Couture. Who says second time around isn’t as special?
Keep guests entertained with party tricks performed by magician Daniel Reed. Jazz singer Emma Munro-Wilson or a gospel choir will help them feel the music within, while burlesque dancers will get everyone in the mood.
Wedding romances are always the main attraction, so keep palm reader Philena Bruce on hand to figure out the future of new relationships.
Whatever people say, cards are a big deal. For a stylish start, send Louise Richardson’s bespoke invitations or Chartula Studio’s laser-cut stationery. For everything else, take a trip to Mount Street Printers.
All this planning getting you down? Don’t get your knickers in a twist; take some time off to party with your friends.
By the time the big day rolls around you’ll be high on life; let your guests get high on sugary treats. The Original Tricycle Company has a posh 1930s or a wacky 1960s trike for serving magnificent ice creams. Or opt for a tiered cheesecake piled high with strawberries, blueberries or blackberries.
It’s a sweet start to married life.
