The opening line of this book says “The best weddings tell stories” and it is so true…
Every wedding I have every worked on has been a story of the couple and their love story and how it is entwined with families and friends and the little path that a couples wander along while planning their wedding.
Last year I came across Elizabeth Demos, vintage wedding style book while having a rummage through the shelves of one of my favourite book shops. You know how it is you get taken in by a pretty cover and have a flick and a few pages in you say, “yep seen it all before” and put the book down and swiftly walk off . Not this time I couldn’t put this book down, it’s packed full of vintage inspiration and some really lovely stylish wedding ideas, which I am sure you will all enjoy.
I really liked Elizabeth’s’ approach, saying “Wedding inspiration is everywhere, but for me, it is firmly rooted in the past,” I loved her approach and creative vision so this has been a favourite on the Tigerlly bookshelf for some time.
The book covers an amazing and wide range of wedding styles from Gatsby to circus, which I am sure you agree is a pretty big jump. It has lots of fabulous DIY tutorials and styling ideas to inspire your wedding designing process. A few of our favourite ideas were the escort card table plan with shutters and vintage fabric napkin rings, just divine.
