Vintage weddings are all the rage at the moment with some brides opting for a full on 1950’s themed wedding.

If you are inspired by the lace dress, bunting, vintage roses and forget me nots but don’t want to stray away from your childhood dreams of a traditional wedding then West Park could be just what you’re looking for. Our stunning 19th Century building is set within beautiful mature gardens, an ideal setting for any photographer wanting to capture your special day.

It couldn’t be simpler to add a vintage twist to your wedding, here is our wedding co-ordinators top 6 vintage tips:

  • Choose centre pieces that reflect your theme such as candelabras or jam jars filled with wild flowers
  • You don’t need fondant or icing to make a statement, go ‘naked’ with your cake and instead highlight the inside layers and an ornate style cake stand
  • Select a vintage style and use it for your stationery from your invitations right through to your place cards and table plan
  • Why not travel in style to your wedding and book a classic VW camper van for you and your bridal party
  • Another idea sure to please all your guests is a retro candy buffet with all their favourite sweeties from years ago
  • And finally why not decorate the room with some bunting which can even be personalised with your initials!

We have lots more ideas and would be delighted to discuss them further with you, why not get in touch and let us help you make your dream wedding a reality!
