Today I am excited to introduce The Vintage Swallow, a new Business that endeavours to support brides with the knowledge they need to pull off their vintage themed weddings in style and authenticity.
After 10 years in the RAF navigating on fast jet aircraft Caroline Overton decided to set up a vintage wedding decorations and accessories website. People were usually dumbfounded by this and thought flying to be much more exciting, but not Caroline!
With so many friends getting married it became apparent that Brides were struggling to source vintage inspired wedding-ware in the area and that seemed bizarre considering the continued popularity of the vintage theme, so after some market research she decided that she would be the one to offer it to them!
Since making the decision to launch [November 2011] she has been sourcing suppliers and building the website and today the Website is going ‘live’.
To celebrate the launch she is having a Vintage Tea Party for local brides between 2pm-5pm on Saturday the 7th April in her period home at Rochomie, 25 St Andrews Rd, Lhanbryde, Moray IV30 8NZ.
Brides will also be able to receive a 10% discount on the website prices in April by liking Carolines Facebook page – The Vintage Swallow.
There will be authentic vintage items available as well as vintage inspired designs.
She will be selling everything you need for a vintage wedding, apart from the dress.
The main categories are Venue Decorations, Table Decorations, Favours, Bridal Accessories and Gifts.
Products include teacups and saucers, birdcages, bunting, jewellery, veils, glass bottle centrepieces, embroidered handkerchiefs, ostrich feather wraps, vintage gloves and brooch bouquets, to mention just a few (a few examples can be seen below).
This is just a small example of all the vintage pretty that Caroline stocks. If you are in the area tommorow, why not drop in on the Tea Party and if not just have a browse of her brilliant website with some great information areas on Decade details.
