Kombi Love.









Jennifer and Vincent planned a wonderfully unique wedding, with invitations designed by the bride printed on tea towels, and table runners made from found items from charity shops. Everything was matched to a mood board and made for a beautifully crafted wedding day. 


Bride name Jennifer Winstanley
Groom name Vincent Brown
Wedding Date 4th January 2014

Bridesmaid’s dresses  All different - I let them choose their own...they just had to match my mood board - they all looked great, so they chose very well!

Groom’s attire All the groomsmen wore Ash Brown 3pc suits from Aquila. They wore check shirts and knitted ties from Aquila also...who even threw in some funky polka dot socks for free too!

Invitations and stationary  Designed by the bride. Save the Date was a postcard, the invite was printed on a tea towel and also on paper with a hand designed map on the back. 
Wedding favours  Mason Jars with name labels on them 
Catering  "Table Matters - we made our own table runners... we bought hundreds of doilies from charity shops and then painstakingly stitched them all together to become table runners.  They looked lovely, but were very time consuming... couldn't have done it without my Mum, who became a champion charity shopper!"  


Wedding cake Cake made of Tiers of Cheese from Pavilion Select Produce at Queen Vic Market...they were awesome and very helpful.  The cheeses were beautiful and lasted for ages afterwards.
DJ/Entertainment  Band - Snake and Wally - absolutely awesome, they played in the church as well and even managed to photo bomb a few of our snaps!  
Celebrant  Father Gerry Spillane  
Photographer  Tigs Macallan 


Why Kombi Love? "It fitted in with the vintage/relaxed feel that we wanted for our wedding.  We also rented a VW Kombi and travelled around Cornwall in the UK in it, so it had some nostalgia attached to it as well!  There was a little Kombi van incorporated in to the invite design too!"

Memories of the day? "Too many to mention...singing along to Abba on the way to the church with my Dad and bridesmaids. That first moment that I walked in to the church and saw Vince at the altar. The entire reception time - it was just so much fun and to share it with all of our friends and family was exhilarating. I enjoyed having our photos taken just the two of us as well - it gave us a moment to take it all in, just the two of us - Vince looked amazing and I loved just being beside him as his wife and seeing him happy."
