An Elegant 1920s inspired White Wedding With Gypsophilia Details: Jodie & Tom
An elegant white wedding with a touch of 1920s romanticism is up on the blog today. Gorgeous bride Jodie wears a super pretty Jenny Packham wedding dress that has just the right amount of wow and the most amazing, intricately detailed sparkle – coupled with a beautiful vintage headpiece I just love her bridal style.
Jodie & Tom chose neutral colours of white, grey and silver for their modern with a vintage feel wedding and with classic wedding suppliers such as Rachel Simpson, Two Birds and the kind of wedding favour I would love to receive, I think you’ll be inspired by their wedding.

I chose my Jenny Packham wedding dress as it just felt different and even though I had decided I didn’t want anything that sparkled. It made me feel so special and for one I day I think you need and deserve it.
The beauty and detail was different from other dresses, and I cried the moment I put it on, so I just knew! The girls at Ava Rose were amazing, and very patient with an annoying bride to be,
Emma from Baytree Flowers, she was simply amazing, and had the most fantastic ideas. I just wanted beautiful simple flowers, and always wanted them white. Emma came up with the designs to suit our requests.
Both our venue and the church meant a lot to us as they have views of Pendle Hill where Tom and his family grew up. Tom unfortunately lost his father in 2014 so it felt like there was a piece of him there with us when we viewed and on the day of our wedding day.
Our wedding style was inspired by the 1920s, as everything they did was romantic! From this I wanted the venue to be clean and to be able to be tailored to our specific needs. We always wanted the colours to be neutral, and to let the elegance and beauty of the surroundings show through.
My Dad walked me down the aisle to the traditional wedding march.
Tom and I met through where I worked, Tom was supplying a surface for our indoor arena. It was strange that we started to speak and it was as if I had known him forever, and although I didn’t know we would be together straight away I always knew we would be great friends.
For wedding favours we provided a mirrors for the ladies and a bottle of grey goose for the men. The mirrors were all sourced from monsoon, I thought it was a nice wedding favour everyone could take away with them.
Our wedding cake was a lemon and chocolate sponge, the cake for ourselves, wasn’t that important, we just went with a simple design.
Our wedding photographer was Steve Longbottom of Mr Sleeve!
What was your most memorable moment of the day / evening?
The speeches, they were funny and light-hearted but emotional at the same time, followed by everyone dancing and having a great time in the evening. I have to say the food and wine played a huge part. The first dance was ‘Just Be’ by Paloma Faith, and can’t even remember the reason for choosing it, it just felt right.
If you could impart any words of wisdom to a future brides planning their wedding day, what would they be?
Just let the day flow, there are so many people around you that love you that they all make sure the day runs smoothly for you so there is no need to worry!
Massive thanks to Mr Sleeve for sharing this very elegant wedding with us, and congratulations to Jodie & Tom – we love your day.
