1950s Style Wedding Dress and a Wedding in Kent

We were sent some lovely images by Nicola and Paul from their wedding in August. The couple married at Kent Life which is a beautiful venue in rural Kent. As a mature bride, Nicola knew she wanted a 1950s style wedding dress that would make her feel like Grace Kelly. We’d love to share some of the details from their quirky wedding. Nicola chose a gorgeous lace and tulle ballerina length wedding dress.

1950s Style Wedding Dress

The couple got married in a quirky Kent venue that had lots of charm and history relating back to the 1950s. So it was Nicola’s wish to wear a vintage style wedding gown and so booked her consultation at our Bexley boutique.

“Always knew I wanted a 1950’s style dress. I also knew Cutting Edge Brides specialise in this style”

Knowing that they wanted a fun and quirky day, Nicola wanted a short wedding dress that could keep up. So she chose the gorgeous Honey by White Rose for her wedding day. It has a beautiful lace fitted bodice and long sleeves and a wonderful full tulle skirt that moves easily. The full sleeves are edged with lace which are a great choice for outdoor weddings or if you are a more mature bride. A ballerina length wedding dress suits every wedding venue and has a beautiful swish and sway to it as you move. It makes our brides feel like a movie icon and gives a soft and romantic feel to any wedding day.

I had a fantastic experience with Suzanne, and Krystyna from start to finish. Both were very knowledgeable and super friendly.

After a few minor tweaks, Nicola was ready to dazzle her husband to be. She wore her hair tied back with flowers in it and wore a pair of classic retro style satin t-bar style shoes. Her bridal bouquet was a mix of red and white flowers and Paul had a single flower buttonhole to complement her flowers.

I felt like Grace Kelly in my dress. A beautiful 50’s icon and real princess. Everyone  commented on how elegant I  looked

Paul wore a classic Mod Style suit in a rich wine colour and had a black tie and shoes. This was truly a retro style wedding day with lots of details. Nicola and Paul had some fund details such as a little pink chapel, ferret racing and a tug of war rope. Oh and Nicola arrived to the wedding on a tractor trailer!
