The Vintage Bride Story
If you've arrived at this blog, then the chances are, you're a bit like me: you love vintage style and are getting married! Congratulations, not only are you're embarking on a new life adventure, but you've got great taste too!
I'm a journalist and editor with 15 years' experience writing for national magazines and newspapers, creating online communities and managing social media for clients. I've always loved the enduring style of the past, it inspires and excites me, it's classic and cool at the same time. I also love working in the wedding industry as a makeup artist for over 20 years, I love working with my partner in crime Charlotte. Together we are The Blusherettes and specialise in vintage hairstyling and beauty.
So why start The Vintage Bride blog? Well, as an engaged gal myself, I have found that I've struggled to find relevant resources that really capture the look I love. 'So', I said to myself, '-why not create a resource for brides-to-be (and grooms too, of course)?' A dedicated space where I can collate the best suppliers around that specialise in my favourite vintage style. This includes everything from dresses, shoes, veils, headwear and jewellery, the perfect venue, to the styling of your ceremony; the decor, food, entertainment and all those glorious little touches that create a totally unique experience for you and your guests.
This is the place to read interesting and inspiring features for vintage-lovers and show off the best, most sumptuous vintage-inspired weddings for readers to devour.
I'm always happy to hear from anyone who wishes to contribute content as I grow this gorgeous (vintage) beast of a blog.
Happy wedding planning!
