The ultimate vintage seaside wedding, fish & chips, Bakewell tarts, record players – HOORAY 🙂
Lynne & Will ‘svintage seaside wedding vintage musicol vintage seaside wedding, in Lynne’s own words.
Myself and Will began chatting online through a dating site in August 2015 and met for the first time that September. We hit it off straight away and sat chatting for several hours before making plans to meet up again and going our separate ways. I was completely smitten I remember texting my friends that night whilst he was in the bathroom to tell them how ‘fit’ I thought he was. Although we both worked shifts and Will worked away in the week a lot we saw each other as much as possible and Will had near enough moved in within a few months. I decided in January 2016 that as it was a leap year I was going to propose on the 29th February that year. I got impatient and did it 10 days early; I bought a t-shirt saying ‘will you marry me?’ and drove us to a favourite spot of ours in Derbyshire and began taking my layers off to unveil the t-shirt, and Will said yes.
We both have 2 children from previous marriages and it was exciting planning a day not just for us 2 but for our 4 children too.
We decided on Whitby as we both love the place and had spent a weekend there together the previous summer, we booked a week’s holiday with the kids, booked the registry office for the Friday and began planning.
My dress was £17 from Lindy Bop a cream lace dress with a Peter pan collar. My wedding ring was my great grandmas eternity ring. Will picked his wedding in Whitby, Silver with Whitby jet.
We went for a theme of vintage seaside and music, our favourite things, and we had red, white and black as our colour scheme.
Our friends and family arrived in Whitby throughout the week so we were able to spend time with some of them before the wedding.
We had a small wedding party of close friends and family and from the registry office we walked to a fish and chip shop and then onto the beach where most of our guests remained for the afternoon. Myself and Will were booked in at Whitby tattoo studio at 2pm and went there and had his and hers nautical themed tattoos; I had a helm, Will had an anchor. We then met up with our guests at our cottage for a bbq and Pimms cocktails, it was a great afternoon and we were able to spend time with everyone. We had a local function room booked from 7, we walked up with our own record player and second hand LPs and enjoyed music, dancing, Bakewell tarts and some unprepared speeches.
It was a truly memorable few days and completely captured us as a couple… it was perfect. 🙂
