Vintage wedding photographer Heather Shuker offers advice on how to plan a retro-inspired big day to remember.

How to plan a vintage wedding

Indulge yourself in and around Brighton in the many vintage shops listed on VintageBrighton.com. And not forgetting Brighton’s Sunday Market at the Marina and remember early bird catches the worm – and the treasures.

Enrol aunties and grans into helping source vintage treasures for you – after rummaging in their lofts and cupboards first of course. They will love to feel involved in your big day and are magpies when it comes to old knick knacks and vintage bits and bats.

Put together mood boards of clippings and photos to create your theme and and get online – there are masses of ideas and check out RocknRoll bride’s blog.

Make, don’t print. When it comes to your invites, menus, orders of service etc – write them – it really is easy and we all did it at school! Buy a nice pen – a real ink pen and sit in front of the TV for a night and you will be surprised you can still write !

Look through old photographs of your family for ideas and think about props for your day such as old chairs/chaise longs, sign boards, picture frames, photo booths etc…and call me!
