Inspiration

Having met through their joint love of riding vintage Vespa's, there was only going to be one theme for their wedding with a beautiful mid-length halterneck wedding dress, super cool wedding transport and huge smiles on every single person's face! This 1960's inspired wedding at Garthmyl Hall looks so much fun, we wish we could have been there to enjoy the 'Rave Cave'! And those flowers are to die for, although we would expect nothing less as the bride herself works at the amazingly talented JamJar Flowers. Even just looking through this wedding puts a massive smile on our faces!

What Made Our Day Unique

The whole day was very 'us' - scooters, soul music and a secret Rave Cave. Tim and I both ride classic Vespa's from the 1960s & 70s, that's actually how we met. There are a few scooters in the family, so there was no question that they'd be at the wedding. Tim and his boys, along with my Dad and Uncle rode down to the venue in convoy in the morning, all suited and booted. A brilliant way to start an incredible weekend.

Halterneck Wedding Dress

Now let's just talk about that halterneck wedding dress! The Charlie Brear bridal gown is the perfect choice for a '60s inspired day, the 3/4 style means the Miu Miu silver shoes were on show for everyone to appreciate and the bridal updo was highly in keeping too! A beautiful garden ceremony was followed by the wedding breakfast in an open marquee, guests were then encouraged downstairs to dance the night away in the Rave Cave that had been created!

Inspiration & Styling

We both have exactly the same taste, which always comes back to a modernist aesthetic, so that influenced the table styling which we wanted to feel clean and modern. Black cutlery with grey and black plates on crisp white table cloths. I do a lot of work with pressed flowers at JamJar Edit, so each guest had a single pressed flower on their napkin. Table flowers were in vintage bottles, all amber and aqua glass, including my favourite little ink bottles from our bottle filled window at JamJar, and one of my favourite JamJar Edit pieces - a flower-filled Rose Globe on the top table.

It was important for our couple to keep the music flowing and keep the dancefloor filled so good entertainment was a must. The Best Men (DJ's) were a perfect choice, you can find them and other fantastic suppliers on our handpicked directory!
