For those of you who didn’t check in yesterday afternoon, we shared this sweet Camden pub wedding with a bride rocking an original 60′s vintage wedding dress - and which featured some lovely wedding ideas (wavy wants instead of confetti anyone?). This morning, it’s all about this very glamorous and stylish 1920s jazz aged inspired affair held at Iscoyd Park on 31 May this year, when Marketing Manager Jo-Ann married James, who works in professional football.
I think Jo-Ann looks absolutely knock-out in these images and I adore her choice of 20s/30s styling – the marcel waves and bold lip give her a …
“We wanted a sophisticated old Hollywood glamour feel. I have always been inspired by the jazz age of the 1920s and 1930s and really wanted to evoke the oh-so-chic speakeasy vibe. But with ‘vintage’ weddings a hijacked trend all of its own I found myself defending my ‘vintage’ wedding to anyone who showed a casual interest. This included a florist who told me ‘You’re not the only person who thinks she’s quirky’, when I dared to suggest I might like ‘something unstructured’ other than agree with the traditional, boring bleugh. But with a genuine ardour for all things vintage that far exceeds a stolen phase, it became important, no essential, to have a day that reflected us as a couple. Just a as much in the same way as a Photobooth might these days induce a stifled yawn, as much as I longed for the elegant and inimitable we also just wanted to have fun!”

“We got married at the beautiful Iscoyd Park on the Cheshire Shropshire border. Venue hunting was probably the most stressful part of the entire planning process. Mainly due to the fact I hadn’t had it picked out since I was 12, I didn’t have a Pinterest board for it (omg!), and really it could have been anything – a beach, a field, a castle?!
It took a marquee pushing, chair cover wielding venue manager; who inadvertently thought James (my future husband) was my Dad (and was quickly crossed off the list); to make us re-focus on what was actually important to us. As soon as we saw Iscoyd Park I realised it was everything I hadn’t known I wanted. The perfect mix of glamour and opulence but equally a totally unpretentious family home. I didn’t just want to get married there I wanted to live there!”
“Inspired by the 1920s headpieces featured in the film ‘Singing in the Rain’ my headpiece was ‘Kelly’ by Ivory Tuesday also at The Case of The Curious Bride. Melanie is wonderful and makes some magnificently lavish stand out head pieces including giant fabric bows, and ostrich feathers, so I nicknamed my more tame choice an ‘understated statement’. It had beautiful detailing of tiny silver glass seed beads, a mother-of-pearl flower centre, and a gathered spotty birdcage veil. Delish!
I was sold and didn’t look anywhere else. I wore it the day after the wedding to open our cards and presents and would wear it every day or just to do the dishes in if I could get away with it! The tear shaped base which was very light green also set the colour palette for the bridesmaid’s dresses and the groomsmen’s tie’s early on. Result!“
