Laura Lee and her boyfriend Patrick have been life-long Sixties fans. When they decided to get married it was clear their wedding was going to be as vintage and as Sixties as possible. The result was a beautiful and truly individual do that we just had to share with you. Here’s Laura’s story.

When my husband and I started to plan our wedding we knew that it would have to have a Sixties air about it as we are very much into that era. We both love the music, the clothes and have vintage scooters of our own which I knew had to be part of our big day. We didn’t want the wedding to come across as cheesy or over the top but luckily since our friends and family are either into the Sixties/Mod scene themselves or are very well dressed, we ended up having the best looking bunch of wedding guests we could have imagined.

It took six months of hard work to pull everything together. I already knew what kind of dress I wanted, which made finding it extra hard – I actually started looking around very soon after Patrick proposed. I was close to resigning myself to the fact I would have to have it made, when I finally found the one. Snuggled on the pages of Oxfam.com, I couldn’t “Add to basket” fast enough. It was perfect, vintage Sixties, A-line, full-length with an Empire Line topped with lace and a bow.

Patrick had his suits made by his favourite tailors in Leeds, and he accessorised with a vintage tie clip, watch and cuff links. We both had a day and evening outfits. My second dress, christened Disco Dress, was much shorter in pale yellow with a high neck and big bow on the back (it seems I have a penchant for bows!), again it was Sixties and this time I found it on Etsy, which is also where I found my vintage Sixties bridal shoes.

On the big day I had my hair in a huge amazing beehive (thanks to Vintage Hair Lounge) which was so fab I really didn’t want to take it out, while my cousin did my make up. My three bridesmaids were dressed in bespoke pink silk dresses and my flower girl wore Monsoon. They all had in their hair somewhere some tiny fabric flowers that my mother had on her wedding dress in the Seventies.
