I recently became acquainted with Tiffany Grant of Grant-Riley Weddings after she contacted me via Etsy regarding calligraphy for her upcoming wedding. I soon learned that she is an event coordinator in the UK who specializes in vintage-themed weddings.
“It was after I began organising my own wedding that I had the idea of
setting up a wedding planning company specialising in vintage weddings.
Seeing the sudden surge of vintage styles advertised in bridal magazines I
realised there were plenty of suppliers offering various vintage services, but
no one bringing them all together, ” Tiffany states.
She saw this as an opportunity to to establish herself in this unique niche market. One look at the breathtaking photos on her website or her blog will convince even the most discerning brides that this woman knows 1920’s art deco style like the back of her hand, and she plans events reminiscent of generations past, ranging from the 1920’s to the 1960’s.
“Modern society seems to be tiring of the readily available, mass-produced
way of the world and we are trying to return to the past in every aspect of
life. I think the way bygone eras are portrayed shows real comfort and
romance, especially where weddings are concerned.”
She most certainly understands the personal touches that are involved in creating magical, romantic moments. Though she is in the UK, do take a moment to check out her brand new blog for multitudes of unique and inspirational ideas for your vintage-themed wedding!
