I 'heart' this Nostalgic Wedding

I cant tell you how much i love this wedding.
Taking this back to how weddings used to be, Lisa & Tim opted for a completely personal, village hall type wedding in the beautiful historic village of Melbourne . ( which is where we are also based)
It reminded me of a nostalgic wartime era wedding, and i loved the fact they turned a simple village hall into a quintessentially english wedding venue. When i walked in the room to dress it with flowers, it completely had the wow factor for me. The room was so sweet, and back in the day I could visualise a gramophone playing in the corner. They even provided little pink bon bons in vintage china. A real blast from the past.
For the flowers, Lisa gave us a brief of pink and cream, but then allowed us the freedom to use whichever flowers we thought we complement.
For me, it had to be all my personal favourites roses, hydrangea, peony, stocks which complemented the rural, informal setting of the wedding.
For the church, Lisa hired our bay trees which we decorated for her, and then moved these to the reception venue which was only a short distance away. The wedding was on a lovely sunny day and the happy bride and groom walked from the church to the venue - perfect.
For the reception Lisa collected lots of different containers , and hired a couple from us, for us to fill with flowers, for a mismatch shabby chic look.
To support local suppliers , the food was catered by the highly recommended Mileburne restaurant, also based in Melbourne.
It was so refreshing to be involved in a wedding like this. Thankyou very much Lisa and Tim for allowing us to be involved in your special day. x
