HEARTFELT VINTAGE BRIDAL & WEDDINGS – THE HOME OF CREATIVE, ADVENTUROUS WEDDINGS!
Posted on 21st January 2017
It’s fair to say we love Heartfelt Vintage Bridal & Weddings! Based in Alma Vale Road in the heart of Clifton, if you haven’t yet visited this vintage lifestyle boutique then you’re in for a treat!
Established in 2014 by husband and wife team Will and Kate, the business was bourne out of their desire to create a little haven of calm and creativity amidst the chaos of the modern world.
With a background in the performing arts, running festivals and producing artists all over Europe, it’s no surprise that Heartfelt Vintage has evolved to become a multi-faceted business offering a number of different services under one roof.
Part vintage boutique, part tea room, part party venue, they are unique within Bristol and the only place in the city where you can enjoy a cup of loose leaf tea and a freshly baked scone at the same time as choosing from their beautiful selection of vintage wedding dresses! There’s no hard sell here – Heartfelt like to think of themselves as the antidote to modern life.
Bristol’s only supplier of authentic vintage wedding dresses, they have a stunning range of unique dresses from the 1900’s to the 1970’s, all lovingly restored. And don’t worry about vintage dresses being too small – they have a fantastic alteration service who can either make a dress fit or can build a replica from scratch if you fall in love with a particular gown.
Heartfelt love creating something from nothing. With their creative backgrounds they love helping you plan your wedding and turn the most mundane space into something magical. Some of their most memorable wedding locations last year included a front garden, a cinema and a woodland cemetery!
Offering different wedding planning services ‘The Creator’, ‘The Searcher’, the Co-ordinator’ and ‘The Fixer’, they can cover every aspect of your wedding from just sorting out a problem to helping you organise the whole thing from start to finish.
You can also hire their beautiful venue for a vintage hen party with scrumptious food and a variety of activities.
You can either simply hire the tearoom for your own private party, book one of their ready-made party packages or ask them to put together a bespoke party for you. Or they can bring the Heartfelt Vintage Bridal mage to a venue of your choice.
From vintage makeovers to photo shoots and fascinator making, to afternoon tea with live music, they’ll ensure there’s always a warm welcome, enough tea to sink a battleship and lots and lots of cake!
We’re thrilled to be welcoming Kate and her team back to the Vintage Wedding Fair and we can’t wait to see their gorgeous stand.
