Readers’ Vintage Weddings: Jo and Robert

Jo has her own vintage headdress and accessories business in Hampshire but travelled to the majestic Banff Springs hotel in Canada for a magical winter wedding. 

The theme: 30s elegance and old Hollywood glamour. A Jenny Packham “Alice” gown, feather boas and pearls as table dĂ©cor.

Homemade things: Jo made her own alternative bouquet out of her Grandmother’s vintage brooches and her unique head-dress from vintage gems and jewellery. For favours, they bought old-fashioned sweets from the local shop in Banff and placed them in wine glasses along with handwritten thank-you notes. 

Vintage tips: Jo recommends sourcing vintage from the suppliers featured on Love My Dress – where she found her veil and bolero, which she finished off with a huge vintage brooch.

I've included some of Jo's gorgeous vintage creations below, that you can find on her website.
