Amuda and Glanvin's vintage style wedding is about as slick as they come. Amuda looks like a Hollywood starlet in a fitted gown with a watteau train and beaded headdress. And Glanvin looks equally dapper in a brocade white tuxedo jacket. Together they dance down the aisle, danced around Birmingham, and had the time of their lives. There was also a surprise performance of 'their song' which didn't leave a dry eye in the house, including Recommended photographer Photosbyhash who later used the live recording when he delivered their images.

Our wedding had an alternative feel to our usual traditional black Caribbean wedding. It was unique to us, our style of vintage fashion, art, photography and an appreciation for each other, dance and family.

Vintage Style Wedding

We only invited a small number of people to the wedding ceremony and reception to create an intimate, romantic, homely vibe. We did not have a particular preference about the style. My mood boards mainly consisted of a bohemian looking style. But as you can see by the pictures when it all came together we had a vintage style wedding.


My husband asked our friend to sing 'our song' at the wedding breakfast. This was a super special surprise, which reduced me to tears. We also had a band play their own music. We gave them some ideas of genres we liked, and they made them their own. They even included our names in our ceremony aisle descending song.

Amuda and Glanvin booked an artist to draw a mural on a chalk wall which added a special touch to their celebration.

I feel like no matter the advice you give people they are always going to want their special day to be exactly how they want it. However, I would say it is a once in a lifetime event make sure you get a bloody good photographer and videographer because that helps you to relive that moment over and over again... So, invest well.

This may be a vintage style wedding, but there is definitely nothing old fashioned about it. If you're feeling inspired by Amuda's watteau train, and Glanvin's white tuxedo jacket, you should definitely see our wedding dress guide and groom suit ideas articles.
