We’re heading to Southampton on the blog this evening for a quirky and colourful, vintage inspired wedding (with some sneaky Dinosaurs thrown in for good measure!)
During the planning stages the more I heard from Kari about their wedding day the more excited I was for it! It was also exciting to shoot my first wedding in Southampton, and at a rather cool rustic venue called The Dancing Man Brewery (the ceremony took place at Southampton registry office just round the corner from the main venue).
Vintage loving Kari chose black polka dot dresses for her bridesmaids, with colourful co-ordinating sashes and petticoats (a different colourful for each bridesmaid. Keeping things non-traditional, both bride and groom wore converse for the day.
I think you’ll agree that the couples’ vision for their styling of the venue is just gorgeous. I loved the little dino bride and groom cake toppers created by Kari herself and the records used as place holders (Richard happens to be a graphic designer so he mocked up the song title labels with their guests names!).
They had a super cute first dance to a do wop song before Kari changed into dress number two, a red heart print Vivien of Holloway number, and partying the rest of the night away!
