One of the best parts of running the National Vintage Wedding Fair is organising the fashion parades. These are more a “show and tell” than full on catwalk shows and a great way for brides-to-be to see both vintage and vintage inspired dresses worn and accessorized. We choose real women, not models, who simply love to dress up in vintage – something that our brides-to-be appreciate. This month I am sharing some of these fabulous ladies rocking their vintage wedding gowns, all photographed last season around the UK.


Why not come along this season to see our dresses in the flesh. Our dates are: Cheltenham March 12th and Manchester March 19th. For April and May dates visit
