Charlotte & Will // Vintage Village Hall Wedding Photography

This vintage wedding was A-MAZING. Despite us joking about the possibility of snow when we first met for this February wedding, the weather was great – albeit very nippy, but no rain or snow. Hurrah! In February – I call that a miracle!

You might remember Charlotte & Will’s wet engagement shoot – complete with chickens? We had hoped to get them out for another cameo on the wedding day, however they were far too riled up to keep under control around such a beautiful wedding dress. However they did make an honorary appearance in spirit in the form of a chicken cake topper, on top of the button decorated cake being handmade by a family friend.

I LOVE succulents, the colour and texture of them is incredible, so when I saw Charlottes bouquet full of succulents and sunflowers I was a very happy lady, the yellow flowers were continued in the village hall where the tables were decorated with bright wild yellow flowers, making the entire place pop with colour! The old Burton Joyce village hall was covered in miles and miles of handmade bunting (literally miles) making the hall look just like an lovely old street party.

The day fitted in perfectly with Charlottes tourism and railway themed table plan when I asked them once again to get cosy on the railway line for some photos of the Bride & Groom. Luckily both of them love photography and have their own old film cameras – which I insisted made a special appearance in their day for a few quirky photos. I even managed to get a few shots of the wedding using my own Medium Format and Polaroid cameras.

The wedding was so beautifully and creatively put together by this adorable pair. Being a designer, Charlotte created all their invites, table plan and decorations all based around the iconic vintage British Railways tourism posters as well as some fantastic 50’s style music posters which decorated the village hall, using photos from their engagement shoot with me.DIY wedding decorationsGroom with stripy sockshandmade cake with buttonshandmade buntingVillage hall weddingVintage camera and wedding ringsvillage hall vintage weddingBride and groom vintage chairsFather of bride and grooms speechesBride and Bridesmaids smilingScrabble wedding gamesGroom with groomsmen Bride and Groom danceJuke box weddingBride with knee length wedding dressVintage wedding dress

In the evening came out the gorgeous red shoes and of course the life-sized Marilyn Monroe and Elvis cut outs for a great end to the evening everyone danced the night away…
