This blog celebrates weddings with an added touch of vintage, and was inspired by our very own stunning bride, Sarah’s country eclectic wedding. Sarah and Peter have mastered the combination of vintage with contemporary, adding thoughtful and personal touches that make their wedding day truly special. From the ultimate venue, to the wow factor dress and accessories, this is a wedding to be admired.

The pale blue walls with the ornate floral curtains make a stunning backdrop for Sarah while this dusky rose shade for bridesmaids works perfectly complimenting the surroundings and echoed in the simplicity of her beautiful cake.

Whilst Sarah didn’t opt for the classically vintage dress, she did choose the classically beautiful. She wore Buenos Aires by the spectacular designer Ian stuart. The portrait neckline with draping compliments Sarah’s figure beautifully, and the flower at the crown of the underskirt adds to the element of romance, whilst in keeping with the subtle use of flowers that have been incorporated into most aspects of the day. I especially love the choice of matching head dress, also an Ian stuart piece, which goes beautifully with this stunning gown.

One of the best things about this wedding is the attention to detail, especially the personalised rubber ducks! Sarah commented when sending us these stunning pictures ‘You will notice some ducks in here, we bought them as wedding favours for all our guests, personalised to each person; they went down very well!’ And I can see why they did, this is such a unique touch and brings an element of fun and laughter to the day. Favours like these leave the guests feeling special themselves, the thought that was behind each little duck shows how much each guests means to the bridal couple, and makes the wedding all the more memorable.

    I am mother of the bride, and would just like to say a big thank you to the ladies at Limelight for all their care, time and attention given to Sarah. Nothing was a problem and you made Sarah and myself feel like we were very special and individual, not just another customer. Big, Big recommendation for these ladies. This page is a great reminder of our very special day and a very special couple .. x
