A beautiful vintage wedding

July 2, 2016

My daughter Kerstin has had a dream for a few years now.
She wanted to launch a vintage rental business and cater to special occasions. Today, after much planning, headaches and even some grinding of teeth, she staged her first vintage wedding.

This was the most beautiful and intimate wedding, with 40 family and friends in attendance, but it was that all important first go at something new and scary.

I was so proud of Kerstie and Adam, and while I tried to help as much as possible, it was really Kerstie who had everything running brilliantly. The groomsmen gifts that she’d bought were absolutely what I loved.

The bride wanted everything black, white and purple, and so Kers pulled out her black and white vintage.

She made some beautiful hand-lettered chalk board signs as well as bespoke driftwood wedding and arrow signs to show the way.

A long table was made ready with an area for cards and well wishes, and two huge galvanized tubs full of ice and water. (It was a hot day)


Soon the guests arrived…but where was the bride?

The bride was delayed a little bit because she was having a fresh flower crown braided into her hair.

Some of the children grew impatient and peeked around the old heritage house.

But soon the bride was walked down the isle to her groom.

And while all family and friends witnessed, listened and wished them well,

the bride and groom spoke their vows.

And there they are, Mr and Mrs Fabulously Happily Ever After.

    Whilst looking through The August Break site on Facebook I came across your post, which intrigued me to the point that I went to your website. The wedding and the wonderful, detailed photographs were utterly transporting! Looking forward to August and to sharing images with the group!
