The team behind the National Vintage Wedding Fair have styled a Christmas wedding shoot, featuring 1960s vintage column dresses, lots of colour and decorations and of course oodles of confetti everywhere!

How about carrying a vintage bauble bouquet? And styling the tables and yourself with pompoms! Maybe a cake covered in sugar baubles in candy pinks to match your kitsch Christmas tree? Whatever your style, you’ll agree that this wedding is colourful and festive – and so much more fun than a traditional deep red, winter wedding!
