Jennifer and Dave’s Vintage Wedding

Here at Vintage China Hire we cater for all types of weddings. Jennifer approached us looking to add a few vintage touches to her wedding at the lovely Tankerstown House. They were happy to do the styling themselves and we were happy as always to supply the props.8110c65b-7dd6-421d-8e36-f41a68efe48e

Having choosing the perfect venue Jennifer wanted to complement it with the right  styling. The china on the table looked amazing along with some vintage framed table numbers.

Colour trends for 2017  Lavender or lilac are very gentle and cool colours for a summer wedding. By adding little hints of purple it will work equally well for a winter wedding. Dress your bridesmaid’s in these lovely shades and if you want some  lavender touches for your groom give him a lavender boutonniere with a cool silk tie. Following through the same theme with your  flowers, cake and who doesn’t love these little cupcakes and macaroons. Love the soft romantic look of this collection enjoy.

Style Shoot At The Village At Lyons.

We were delighted to be invited by the wedding team at The Village At Lyons to help with their style shoot to launch their stunning new venue. This new venue is perfect for smaller more intimate weddings.

Downton Abbey was our inspiration for this shoot  so we  added a little old world charm with china as place setting and our exquisite selection of silver and cut glass for floral displays.

Style Shoot may 2014

We recently had the honour of taking part in a fabulous wedding photo shoot at the lovely Tankarstown House in Slane Co Meath. The style shoot was organised by Michelle Johnstone of Waterlily Weddings.

Michelle is a wedding planner who specializes in destination weddings from America to Ireland.  She collected a wonderful group of professionals around her for this shoot. The photographers for the day were Steph and Dado at 5thphotography.com from the USA. Everything else for the shoot was supplied by Irish companies.

We contributed vintage props from our beautiful china to our amazing High Nelly bikes and everything in between. Lucky the weather was fantastic someone’s nanny must have had the child of Prague out the night before. Everything came together fab on the day for the shoot and we cannot wait to see the completed work.

Hopefully it will encourage lots of American brides to select Ireland for their destination wedding. No where throws a party quite like the Irish and a wedding is one hell of a do.
