Not so long ago, a pre-loved wedding gown, a pretty posy of fresh flowers and a backyard reception served on Nan's best china, was considered old-fashioned, even daggy. My, how times have changed - for the better. Now, it is considered vintage and vintage weddings are in vogue.

Planning a wedding is time consuming. Planning a vintage wedding more so, especially if you do not know where to look.

Wedding planner Rebecca Price (Weddingesque) and photographer Debs Ivelja have done all the hard work for you. They have sourced some wonderful wedding suppliers for their 'vintage baby' - A Very Vintage Wedding Fair. Together, they will help you plan the perfect vintage wedding.

A Very Vintage Wedding Fair will take place at The Bleeding Heart Gallery, located in the heritage listed School of Arts building in Brisbane's CBD. Bleeding Heart is an art gallery, artisan gift shop, cafe and events venue; including weddings.

Bec and Debs have all wedding aspects covered with a variety of vintage vendors: beautiful blooms, hand crafted stationery, hand made favours, vintage hire, wedding planners and stylers, cupcakes and cakes, photography and Super 8 cinematography, and entertainment.

And last but certainly not least, beautiful bridal gowns and accessories.
