I do .. IN VINTAGE wedding fayre
Sunday 29th July 2012
Next sunday the beautiful Blakelands Country House will be opening their doors to host the ‘I do .. IN VINTAGE’ wedding fayre organised by the lovely Eve (a photographer) and Victoria (designs, bakes and decorates wedding cakes).
Pre-register here for you chance to win a photographer and cake for your wedding day!
I was lucky enough to be involved in their promotional photo shoot back in june so I got to see the stunning surroundings of Blakelands Country House myself. Set in idyllic countryside it has an old creaky charm but with all the luxury that you would expect from a top hotel. The main house built in 1638 provides a perfect back drop to anyone wanting to add a bit of character to their wedding. So use this as an excuse to come and see the house for yourself as well wander around and chat to all those amazing vintage exhibitors.
Make sure you visit the ‘Blue Room’ as that is where I will be with the SGR Vintage Hair & Makeup stand alongside Luxe Bridal who sell the most amazing vintage wedding dresses.
I will be offering a special 1960′s inspired promotion during the show so make sure you visit the SGR Vintage stand to get your beehive for £10. Walk-ups will be available but if you would like to pre-book your appointment please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Here are some of the photographs from the photo shoot so you can see what lovely treats are waiting for you. I look forward to seeing all you beautiful vintage brides on sunday.
I was lucky enough to join the amazing girls at the LuxeBridal headquarters for their open day. They were showing off their exclusive range of Vintage Wedding Dresses from the glitz glamour af the 1920s right through to the hippie 70s.
Brides were treated to a glass of champagne and a stunning cup cake, supplied by Emily from Buds & Bows Bakery .
I was there to style the bride’s hair to help show off the beautiful head pieces from Cherished Vintage Bridal Accessories.
And to top it all off Louise Holgate Photography was there to capture it all on camera.
I had a lovely day meeting all the brides to be and the wedding dresses were pretty stunning too!
Check out Louise’s photographs of the day below:
