Kerry & Stewart's
Vintage Tea Party Wedding

I love this vintage tea party wedding. It's pure heaven and the story of Kerry and Stewart that goes with it is just lovely.

The pair met through Facebook after Kerry had been off work due to long term sickness. She'd seen a profile pic of Stewart sitting in front of Villa Park, smoking a cigarette and reading Will Self.

Kerry sent him a message and six weeks later they were engaged. The rest is history.

Kerry and Stewart's vintage tea party wedding was fairly low key and relaxed. They got married in the local church and then had their reception in the parish hall feeding their guests canap├ęs, a hot buffet of Lancashire hotpot, cheese and onion pie and chilli with cupcakes for dessert. They were entertained by Kerry's brother's band and they danced all night.

Kerry loves Audrey Hepburn so it was no surprise that her dress was a replica of the one Audrey wore in Funny Face. She approached a dress maker, who found the perfect 1940s pattern and got to work with the raw Indian silk and tulle underlay.

Kerry opted for a birdcage veil to go with her 1940s look from Million Design and added a pearl and crystal headband from Ayedo. Her shoes were Pom Pom de Paris by Diane Hassall - ivory with a feather pom pom (what a name)! The groom wore a Paul Smith three piece travel suit finished off with Paul Smith shoes with purple laces.

Kerry went all DIY with her wedding stationery.

The evening invites were postcards with photos from their trip to Berlin where they got engaged. They mixed and matched having one set of postcards of their shoes and another set of a road sign to a town called 'Wedding'. Along with the photos they also sent a set of photo booth photos or a Polaroid style photo of themselves wearing hats and glasses.

It was all about their personalities and having fun than buying off-the-shelf wedding invitations at twice the price.

The decor for the vintage tea party wedding was all about being shabby chic. The centrepieces were antique bowls, cup and saucers or candelabras, filled with roses or candles. The top table had a large gold birdcage with candles and orchids inside. The other main tables had white birdcages filled with candles and the kids' tables had plenty of games and fun stuff.

At the heart of Kerry and Stewart's vintage tea party wedding was fun. It was all about their personalities and they really let this shine through. It was important their wedding was remembered for being about them and not just a cookie-cutter style, identikit wedding you often find in a hotel. They requested Kirstin, their photographer from Struve Photography to be creative with the photography and she did just that, reflecting the day perfectly.
