Sam and Charlotte / A Star Wars Inspired Vintage Wedding / The Earl of Doncaster
What a wedding I’ve got for you guys today! Sam and Charlotte’s wedding was vintage inspired with a touch of geekiness thrown in, a couple after my own heart!
One of my pre-lockdown couples, Charlotte and Sam initially got in touch with me back in 2018, planning to get married in 2021. They described their love of vintage, their plans to be married at a fabulous art deco venue with a live jazz band and plans to incorporate their loves of Star Wars and Batman and I knew this was going to be such a fantastic day to be lucky enough to be part of. After deciding to postpone due to concerns with covid, their wedding was a long time coming but it was just as magic as I was picturing when I heard their plans four years ago!
They had their ceremony at Barnby Dun Church where the dresses in the wedding party were sparkling perfection in the natural light and the deep red tones of the flowers in the bouquets and buttonholes popped beautifully. There were definitely some Disney/fairytale vibes going on with the classic feel to the styling.
Charlotte’s stunning dress and Sam’s beautiful light suit also fit perfectly with the art deco feel of their chosen venue, the unique Earl of Doncaster Hotel in Yorkshire that had some great little quirky colourful spots for photos!
In the evening they had their reception in the grand ballroom and took part in their first dance accompanied with a live jazz swing band playing Disney whilst colourful confetti cascaded down from the ceiling.
I love weddings where my couples really put something of themselves into the day, I came away from the wedding feeling like I’d known Sam and Charlotte for ages as not only did they put something of themselves into it, they absolutely poured their hearts into the day and really made the most of it. Stamping their shared loves and love for one another into so many details. Their joy, giggles and beaming smiles all day were incredibly infectious and it was so nice to revisit all that while editing their wedding.
Anyway, enough of my gushing about how ace it was, see for yourselves!…
