It may have been a 21st century way to meet (via an internet dating site), but Paul and Laura’s wedding day owed its 1940/50s style to a much simpler, low tech era.
A chance meeting at a fete in Semington with a ‘very nice man called Geoff’, who owned a vintage 1950 flatbed lorry sorted the wedding day transport. Meanwhile Laura sourced a fabulous Marilyn Monroe style dress, and a gorgeous pair of shoes featuring ice creams, with matching bag, for her own outfit, and a pair of lovely 1940s style dresses from Joules for the bridesmaids.
Melksham Town Hall provided the venue for the ceremony and friends and family were afterwards invited back to the pretty village hall at Worton for the reception, where guests were able to treat themselves to specially re-named burgers from the hired burger van.
As the evening drew in, the party moved on to Melksham Assembly Hall, where a 1940’s dance band were playing. Having secured two tables for themselves and the guests, the happy couple danced the night away!
