On Track for Vintage Style
Photographer Nick and his bride-to-be Tania had always thought their wedding wouldn’t be run-of-the-mill, and following their engagement in Oxford, Nick fell in love with a traditional Oxford boating jacket in navy with pale pink trim. The 1930’s vintage feel and the colour scheme for the day was born.
Tania tracked down the ideal venue Horsebridge Station, a disused railway station in Hampshire’s Test Valley, hosts only a handful of weddings each year, so the couple were delighted to discover their was still a slot free in May. Tania then set about sourcing the perfect wedding dress. ‘I knew I didn’t want anything strapless, so a friend designed the dress and I then found the most beautiful silk and French lace in London. We had to redesign the dress in the fabric shop, to be sure I could afford enough lace, but I was delighted with the finished result!’ laughs Tania.
Vintage touches abounded throughout the day, from the 1930’s family photos featured on each of the tables, to the tea-bag as favours for the guests. Tania had also planned to put together an old-fashioned sweetie bar for the children, but with so much to do on the day, the children ended up putting it together for her – to everyone’s obvious delight!
