Pretty garden wedding from Vela Images

This delightful wedding from my lovely friend Greta from Vela Images has the most deliciously pretty details, I hardly know where to begin!! From the beautiful crockery and lace on the tables, to the stunning array of pastel shades in the bridesmaids dresses, to the brides utterly stunning dress, there is something for everyone. Greta is such a master at documenting gorgeous details like this.

Francesca and Dan (well, Francesca in particular) became obsessed with the 1920s and 30s just before they got engaged, so when it came time to plan and style their wedding they knew they wanted to infuse it with their newfound passion! With that in mind, they chose a waterlily garden as the venue. The waterlilies reminded Francesca of old paintings and cake tins and was an ideal place to celebrate their romantic and relaxed day in true vintage style.

In keeping with the 20s theme, Francesca commissioned her gorgeous drop waist dress from Corina Snow. She'd fallen in love with the fashion of the era and was looking for something classic and elegant in lace. While browsing through a wedding magazine she saw a picture of the back of a similar dress that Corina had designed and excitedly made an appointment to meet with her.

“My advice to other couples? Have fun with it!! Try to include details about your personalities and style as a couple – the more you put in the more the day will feel unique and yours!”

Family and friends helped with the planning and sourcing of items, including the beautiful vintage car that took Francesca to the ceremony. The owner, Roger, had in fact sold the car a few weeks before, but only on the condition that he could still use it to drive Francesca to her wedding!
Francesca and Dan felt that their wedding was really ‘them’. The many hours spent planning and designing were all worth it to them as it was like no other wedding they had been to. Sharing the beautiful day with their parents, families and close friends made it perfect!
