The car

Established in 1990, Vintage Occasions offers 1930s Rolls-Royce cars and a 1961 Ford Zephyr Convertible car for your wedding day. Fresh flowers matching the bride's bouquet are provided in the car on the big day and the chauffeur will be dressed in 1930s clothing to add authenticity. Vintage Occasions' chauffeurs will drive the whole route before the day to time the distance and familiarise themselves with the journey, ensuring a stress-free transport service. 


The dresses

At The Frock Spot in Norwich, it's all about the dress. The boutique's gowns have been carefully selected, beautifully designed in stunning fabrics and are vintage inspired. At The Frock Spot you will find simple satin, a full tulle skirt, soft flowing chiffon, or delicate lace. The boutique's unique range of tea length gowns celebrate timeless elegance and fashions of past decades but are brought to life with modern fabrics and tailoring. The wedding dress pictured is the Florrie gown, available to order in three lengths.



The stationery

One of Once Upon A Time's most popular vintage styles, the Holly Collection was inspired by the bride who asked for a new bespoke design to be created - personalised with the couple's initials and wedding date. The invitations feature burlap, lace, ribbon and twine on Kraft Card, and are finished off with a single Swarovski crystal for a little bit of sparkle. The complementing guest book is also handmade to allow plenty of design freedom and individuality, adorned with with a handmade mulberry paper and co-ordinating decoration.


The venue styling

If you are looking for truly vintage, festival fun, boho, retro or rustic wedding props, Lou Lou Loves Hire and Styling has your back. From authentic vintage china and cutlery to a retro bar complete with babycham glasses, big light-up letters, chalkboard signs, ribbon backdrops, giant paper flower installations and more. Lou Lou Loves' log cabin, affectionately called 'The LOVE shack', is bursting with quirky and eclectic pieces for your wedding.

The catering

A truly vintage wedding would not be complete without a quintessentially English afternoon tea from Harriets Cafe Tearooms. Dainty finger sandwiches, classic freshly baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and preserves topped with mouth-watering cakes, patisseries and macarons - all lavishly washed down with a selection of loose leaf teas and a champagne toast. Whether it is in Harriets' 1940s style tearooms or a location of your choice, the team can provide the perfect vintage afternoon tea served with elegance and style.
