Helen & Rob’s Real Wedding

Helen and Rob originally decided on a Las Vegas wedding – until Helen remembered she was terrified of flying! They married in the UK and had a laidback day, inspired by 1950s Miss Marple with a village fete feel. 


The Non-Traditional Wedding Dress

The bride knew she wanted a 1950s style wedding dress, and didn’t particularly want to get married in white. She had her princess day where she tried on a dress and a veil, but she knew it wasn’t right for their style of wedding.


After a lot of dress stress Helen ended up buying a gorgeous purple 1950s style wedding dress, patterned with roses. All her friends enthused about how ‘Helen’ it was, and it suited the style of wedding perfectly.

Planning her bridal outfit introduced Helen to eBay – it turned out she was quite the magpie and snapped up lots of lovely vintage inspired accessories. She also had a pair of shoes dyed purple to match her dress.
