Now we all know that Love My Dress is the home of fantastic real weddings (err, hello four – yes, count them, four – nominations in the Wedding Blog Awards!) and I have to say that my head is always full of the amazing things I’ve seen. If I had to put together an end of year post featuring some of the most brilliant, I’d hardly know where to start.
That said, a wedding full of original vintage details and waitresses dressed in vintage Playboy Bunny outfits sourced by the bride is always going to make my list. So today, you can understand why I’m beyond excited to introduce you to that super creative bride, Francesca and her company, The Fabulous Vintage Bride…
The Fabulous Vintage Bride is a downright brilliant alternative wedding styling and prop hire company with one aim – to give your wedding that extra dose of WOW factor and to get your guests talking. Offering unique prop hire, bespoke prop sourcing, venue design and dressing, you’re guaranteed a great day from The Fabulous Vintage Bride.
“My props range from kitsch flamingos to vintage retro flower power kites,” says Francesca. “I’ve got a huge collection of beautiful glass vases, vintage radios, typewriters, telephones and not forgetting my extensive inventory of Sindy doll centerpieces and super hero Barbie dolls!”
If you adore the thought of a wedding less ordinary, then Francesca is certainly your woman. She can style your entire day from stationery, flowers, details and more to create the perfect look for your or she can design and dress your venue using her treasure trove of props. Imagine your wildest wedding dream and then contact Francesca because nothing is impossible – she longs for a Star Wars wedding!
“The idea for The Fabulous Vintage Bride came to me when I was on Cloud Nine after my own wedding. I spent forever designing and styling it all! My guests were thrilled with a more alternative and exciting look and everyone was Instagramming like crazy!
“I studied fine art at university and then moved into the film industry but my heart has always been in design and I have found myself drifting towards the art department on my shoots. I literally couldn’t be more excited and passionate about The Fabulous Vintage Bride – finally my skills as a producer and my love for vintage style have combined.”
There are so many reasons why Francesca and The Fabulous Vintage Bride are so special – her love of creative, inventive, almost magical installations is there for all to see and her use of bright, vibrant colour is inspiring. What guest wouldn’t smile when surrounded by such happiness?
“I’m all about creating a fun atmosphere for the bride and her guests. I love everyone being able to revel in their surroundings. However my main inspiration for each wedding comes from the bride herself – having a cuppa and chatting through her thoughts and wishes for the day are the inspiration that I use to create a truly bespoke wedding.”
The Fabulous Vintage Bride in based in London but Francesca is happy to travel to (or ship to!) anywhere. As well as her venue styling service and full vintage wedding styling service, prop hire and more, Francesca also has a number of themed collections of table centres available for the DIY bride – all the designs come in individual boxes with easy-to-follow photos to show you how to set up each piece.
