If you’re getting married and you wish to represent your love all things vintage then you’ve come to the right place. Let us help you to choose a vintage wedding package that withstands the test of time creating the ultimate antiquated ambience for your special day.
The first step is picking the right venue for both your ceremony and reception to tie in with your vintage theme. You can decide to hire out a shabby theatre or arts centre like Cottiers Theatre
in Glasgow, an old Parish Church complete with stain glass windows for a very retro setting. Choose a historical venue such as a castle, manor house or country estate for a wedding filled with grandeur and dated elegance. Opulent décor, stunning chandeliers and antique furniture will surround you whilst spectacular grounds will create a breath-taking backdrop to your special day that will blow your guests away. Danby Castle is a magnificent historical venue set in the North Yorkshire Moors, home to Esk Valley Weddings
. They offer a splendid Vintage Party Tea Package for up to 60 guests, including exclusive use of their unique castle, vintage style venue bunting, a 1950s tea menu, sweet table, lawn games and more!
For that rustic and rural vibe, choose a barn such as the charming Preston Court
, where fairground rides, candy floss stalls and lined up lighting make pretty and quaint vintage touches. The venue provides a choice of spaces; for an outdoor celebration a gorgeous iron bridge highlights your lakeside walk up the aisle, or opt for the open-framed Kent Barn for a rustic setting which you can decorate to your heart’s content, adding bunting and all manner of vintage accessories. Tower Hill Barns
in North Wales provides an informal atmosphere in an idyllic location and offers you flexibility to stylise the venue with the ornamentation you desire.
If you love the outdoors, then a simple but effective vintage weddings idea is to hire an outdoor marquee or historic structure like the unique Larmer Tree Gardens
. Again you can beautify your venue with bunting, flowers and vintage furniture to enhance your desired vibe. Another beautiful outdoor wedding venue is the The Keeper and The Dell
in Norfolk, a secluded canvas marquee set in a quaint woodland dell where camping gardens, a wood cabin and an 18th century Gamekeeper’s barn lie. The perfect palette for a charming vintage wedding in a gorgeous countryside setting.
Beautiful Bunting, Pastel Pallets & Rustic Romance
The next task is choosing your wedding suppliers, and the key to this all depends on how you want to decorate and present your day. Of course with vintage it’s all about the décor, right from the wedding invitation to the finishing embellishments that grace your wedding venue. Some of the beautiful decorative touches available from our range of suppliers include birdcages for the dining tables, seasonal pastel coloured vintage flowers and shabby chic garlands from suppliers like The Big Beautiful Bunting Company
, to help enhance your venue and make it stand out. Take a look at Weddings Vintage
and A Vintage Wedding
who provide a number of different vintage themed wedding services including photography, bespoke stationary, flowers and venue styling.
When planning your catering you can go all out on your vintage theme and treat your guests to the likes of an ice cream bicycle, sweet table or some delightful cupcakes for that extra touch. A lovely little vintage embellishment is opting for an afternoon tea package made available by suppliers such as A Vintage Tea Party
or Ruby’s Tea Party
, where quaint vintage teapots, cups and saucers are all part of the package.
