Laura and Andrew had an amazing 1940′s wedding this past May in their local Bristol community. With Laura playing the part of stylist, she painstakingly sourced all the incredible vintage gowns for her bridesmaids – even going as far as hand-dying them to the gorgeous pastel tones that we fell in love with the moment we saw them! Not to mention how awe-inspiring Laura’s own dress is, which was luckily found tucked away in the USA, in a trunk that hadn’t been opened since wartime! And, it’s not just the ladies that are flaunting incredible vintage style – wait till you get a load of Andrew and his groomsmen in their dapper duds! Along with their amazing vintage styling, L + A effortlessly combine bright and cheery handmade decor that puts their Bristol wedding over the top and makes it vintage inspiration at it’s finest! Get ready to take a trip back in time, enjoy!
