We’re Going ‘Under The Vintage Veil’ To Help You…

Oh So Perfect are delighted to announce that we’ll be working alongside the wonderful team at top UK vintage wedding blog Under The Vintage Veil to assist as a wedding industry expert and ‘resident wedding planner’ offering tips and advice for all your wedding problems and dilemmas.

We’ve been big fans and supporters of Under The Vintage Veil for a long time, as both regular readers and sponsors of the blog and having attended the rather swanky 1st Birthday party (#veilbash) back in June (remember all that hype about the headwear?!), so it’s an honour to be working more closely with Sara and her team on this new and exciting project.

Photos snapped by the rather marvellous Sacco&Sacco Photography.

Under The Vintage Veil offer a fab mix of real life vintage-inspired weddings and engagement shoots, creative DIY ideas, opinion posts, and personal experience posts by ‘Bride-To-Be-Now-Married-Lady’ Sara, which are always heartfelt, thoughtful and sometimes just plain entertaining, so go on over and take a look…

Under The Vintage Veil – The Official Veilbash Photos

They’re finally here – hooray, hooray! The official photographs from the Under the Vintage Veil ‘veilbash’ are now up online for your viewing pleasure, which after the poor quality snaps I managed myself is fantastic news for those of you who were looking forward to seeing some of the professional pics from the party.

You can see all the full details of the party and the accompanying photos on the Under The Vintage Veil blog now by clicking here.

So, can you spot me and my fabulous piece of floral headwear in amongst the crowd? I appear to have my iPhone in hand in most shots (cringe!) which just shows you I really did try to take as many pics for you lovely followers as possible, but unfortunately my camera phone just couldn’t handle the lighting in the venue…

Here I am attempting to take a snap of myself with the legend that is Sara Doron from Under The Vintage Veil – this photo was so dark on my phone that it never even made it onto the final cut on my blog, but hooray for Jayne Sacco for capturing us anyway – thanks Jayne!

All photos were snapped by the rather marvellous Sacco&Sacco Photography.

#Veilbash Photo-booth

Diary of a Wedding Planner

Following from my previous post Under The Vintage Veil – What a Night! I thought I would share some very fabulous though slightly squiffy photos from the pop up photo booth of myself with Sarah London Photography, Sarah Roberts, and Emma Lucy Photo… well it’s not a real party without a few embarrassing photos is it?

The photo booth was supplied by Retro Me and the individual images have been edited using my iPhone.

Under The Vintage Veil – What a Night!

Diary of a Wedding Planner

So it finally arrived! After all my previous posts leading up to this event, and a lot of excitement on twitter, Sunday 10th June finally arrived and Oh So Perfect partied in style!

#veilbash (as it has most affectionately been labelled) was organised and delivered by the wonderful Sara Doron and team at Under The Vintage Veil to celebrate the blog’s first birthday and successful year as a new and innovative wedding blog focussing on all things vintage-inspired and shabby chic.

The party was held at the rather fabulous Proud Cabaret in Brighton and consisted of a few announcements by Sara, a marvellous catwalk show, sweetie tables, cake (YES!), a pop up photobooth, hair saloon, pamper parlour and plenty of dancing the night away with cocktails in hand!

I met some really wonderful new people and friends who I hope to keep in touch with, and it was a fantastic opportunity to let our hair down and have a giggle with some of the wedding industry’s finest photographers, fashion and accessory designers, beauticians, suppliers and other wedding planners and bloggers.

The bash came with one rule only – this was not a heavy networking event – it was a party and should be treated as such, and it certainly was! But even so, you could see everyone was delighted to put faces to names and find out what everyone gets up to within the industry and in conjunction with the Under the Vintage Veil blog. It certainly highlighted to a lot of people there also just how important Twitter is to businesses, especially in this fast paced industry, as everyone swapped twitter names in place of business cards and asked ‘Do I follow you on Twitter?’

But that’s enough rambling from me, I know you’d like to see some snaps, and a final reveal of that flower headdress I have been going on about for weeks (it was perfect by the way!) so I will leave you now with my pictures of the night. I won’t lie to you, they’re not the greatest photos as I only had my iPhone to hand and the party lighting didn’t leave me much room for creativity, plus I was so busy chatting and dancing that I didn’t take very many in the end, but it will give you a taste of what the night was like. You can also check out the Under the Vintage Veil blog too for more detailed updates of the party and the professional shots that were taken… enjoy!
