Emma and Nick's 50s Style Wedding

50s style wedding

Emma and Nick chose the gorgeous setting that is Ness Gardens on The Wirral for their wedding this summer. Joanne Flemming Design in Brighton made Emma's beautifully elegant 50s style wedding dress, and her Audrey Hepburn style veil was made specially made by Kelly Spence. The bridesmaids looked fab in black polkadot swing dresses with a pink petticoat and matching hair flower.

The couple completed the retro feel by hiring a traditional red London bus from Routemaster Buses to transport their guests!

Thank you to Elegant and Wild for the fab photographs.
