By Kate Beavis

Kate Beavis from the National Vintage Wedding Fair shares her ideal Christmas wedding, 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!

The National Vintage Wedding Fair has hundreds of original wedding gowns available to buy on the day as well as everything else you need for your big day. They return in the spring with events around the UK. For more information visit
