Vintage Wedding Inspiration

In anticipation of our fabulous Something Old Vintage Wedding Fair at Whitworth Hall in Manchester tomorrow (12-5!) I have come over all romantic. Lose yourself in these gorgeous vintage wedding blogs. If these still aren't quite enough to quench your thirst for the ideal vintage wedding, then get yourself over to Pinterest and search through millions of photographs and sketches. You can even create your own Pinterest board, a sort of on-line chipboard to store all of your ideas. Oh and that includes those who are merely myself. Plan ahead I say!


A plethora of gorgeous photography, wedding reviews and useful articles to help you along the journey to your own big day. Things you might not even think about such as "Should I feed the photographer?", "How to choose the right florist." and "Is it rude to expect wedding presents?" Not that you haven't got enough to think about already...! This beautiful art deco style wedding was one of my favourites, (photography by Tino and Pip.) Looking at real wedding submissions has to be the finest source of inspiration available.

A world full of fashion, beauty and of course, weddings. Reviews of real vintage, alternative and kooky weddings to get your own creative juices flowing. This rustic wedding with photography by McKinley Rodgers, is beautifully simple and the couple's own commentary provides an extra insight into the run up to their special day. 


Less "vintage" and more for the creative couple, Ruffled is full of DIY inspiration to add your own home made touch to almost everything involved in your wedding. As with lots of these lovely wedding blogs, we have a great selection of real wedding submissions for you to peruse and steal and/or recycle other couples' fabulous tips and tricks! With photography by Rachel Grace, I thought the groom and his boys looked particularly dapper.


Browse through wedding submissions through "genre" whether it's vintage, rustic, outdoor, modern or alternative. These hippy head bands are floral triumphs and looks gorgeous on both the bride and the bridesmaids. Photography from this colourful farm wedding is by Chris Giles. This blog declares that they "hand deliver wedding inspiration everyday" and there certainly is a lot to look through!

Tomorrow we will have numerous independant retro, kitsch and individual exhibitors at Whitworth Hall. From vintage bridal gowns to rustic stationary, retro hair and make-up styling to talking point wedding props. There will be a great selection and any bride to be would be a fool not to drop by! No need to register or book, just show up at Whitworth Hall from 12pm and pay your £5 to the gorgeous girls on the door. 


  1. Such lovely vintage wedding inspirations. I am totally in love with these ideas. We also have been planning to tie the knot in coming year and we both want a beautiful destination wedding so have been making list of the best destination wedding venues.
