Well who would have thought that time would pass as quickly after the wedding as it did leading up to it.

We first met Dawn at the National Wedding show at the NEC back in 2013 and fell in love with all the vintage pieces on display. Shortly after meeting Dawn we knew there was nobody else for the job.

Dawn's creative vision is second to none and was able to put us at ease knowing that our Marquee was going to be decorated amazingly. However nothing prepared us for what an amazing job that her and her family would do.

The theme of our Wedding breakfast was afternoon tea and dawn really brought this to life, with the vintage dresser and mirror combo for our cake table, the milk churns, vintage tandem bike, a trunk to place all the cards in. These are just some of the little things that all came together to make a truly spectacular venue.

Our favourite and also seemed to be the favourite of our guests was the vintage photo booth. As soon as the band started playing, the guests were raiding the prop box and dancing away with feather boas, trumpets and even an old telephone!! The pictures are fantastic.

We also decided to use Flowers by Blooms By Memories to provide all the flowers for our special day. The flowers were amazing, the button holes, the bouquets, table centres and the fabulous ivy trail around the grand staircase in the entrance hall. Everything came together perfectly and I do not think for a minute we every imagined our wedding being as perfect as it was. It was everything we wanted and so much more.

From the very happy couple

Dawn I've just seen all these posts and pictures! Thank you so much for the most fabulous centrepieces! We absolutely loved them! Both the flowers and pieces were absolutely beautiful. You captured the look & feel we were trying to achieve perfectly. Xxx

Dawn & Sara, what can we say? It's so hard to put into words our appreciation for what you created in our marquee for our wedding day, not forgetting the church too, and quickly dismantling the church decorations after the service to transfer to the marquee before we and our guests arrived back home, unbelievable!
You were recommended to us through word of mouth & I can honestly say we weren't disappointed from the first meeting we had, what wonderful ladies full of energy& nothing ever was too much trouble. Andy & I are both in jobs where time is an issue but based on this, what value for money we got!!
We/I asked for rustic vintage & that's exactly what they achieved, Dawn & Sara hire the most fantastic collection of pieces perfect for all weddings...spoilt for choice. I/we just want to say a massive thankyou for all the time, understanding & love you truly put into our special day. We really have made two friends forever.

Thank you so much though, the crockery and tea cups totally set the day off, we couldn't imagine the meal without them, it would have looked all wrong with plain white stuff! They really did look beautiful and yes, everything was beautiful!

Having first met Dawn & Sara from Memories of Vintage at their trade stand at the NEC Wedding Fair earlier this year, I knew from that moment that I just had to have them as my wedding venue stylists.

At the beginning I knew I was looking to create a 1920’s Prohibition Themed Wedding but had very few ideas at this stage. After many discussions, chats, consultations at the wedding venue and generally bouncing ideas around, Dawn & Sara went above and beyond to create the most amazing designs using their spectacular vintage items, creating stunning table centerpieces, focal tableau’s and creating an ambience, unmistakably a scene from the 1920’s……just what we had dreamt of!

I will never forget walking into the decorated room for the first time on the day of our wedding and feeling absolutely overwhelmed by the work and detail that had gone into the space; I could never have imaged just how incredible the room looked….. I was totally bowled over. Both family & friends are still remarking today on just how amazing the venue looked and that this was the best they have ever seen!

We still beam from ear to ear to this day thinking how our wedding day was so special to us and giving us memories we will cherish forever thanks to the wonderful Memories of Vintage. My one word of advice to anyone organising their own wedding would be to unequivocally without question secure Memories of Vintage as your venue stylists safe in the knowledge that you are confidently dealing with a professional, supportive, warm, friendly team and if you are as lucky as us you too will gain two of the greatest friends in Dawn & Sara as we did.

Hi Dawn,
Myself and ben would just like to say thank you so much for the tea cups, saucers and side plates. The afternoon tea we served at our wedding looked amazing with all your tea cups on the tables and every one of our guests commented on how lovely they looked!

Thank you so much for helping to make our special day so perfect.
All the best,

Wedding at Elsham Hall 06.07.2013
I first met you at a wedding fair at Elsham Hall and was blown away by the variety of amazing vintage items you have for hire. Personally, it the was your vintage crockery which won me over...along with your lovely, friendly nature...and I just had to hire 101 of your teacups and saucers and the turquoise blackboard for our big day! They complimented our wedding just perfectly...sometimes the little details really do matter :) I can't thank you enough for your help, you are such a genuine lovely person and it really helps when planning a wedding to have people as accommodating, helpful and interested as you so thank you!

I simply cannot sing your praises enough!!!!! A HUGE thank you from us! It literally made my day first thing and was everything and more of what was in my head.You are wonderful! And it was so lovely to finally meet you.

My feedback can only be positive. It has been a pleasure working with you and your delicate and beautiful crockery, some were absolutely delightful and I can only repeat the amazing feedback and comments that we got over the entire event. I hope to use you in the future if we have any vintage crockery needs as the service you provided exceeded any expectations. Communication throughout this process has been so easy and you have been nothing but helpful! I would highly recommend your company and services to any one wanting to add that special vintage touch to their event.
