This is the first in a new series of blog posts I am planning, where I talk about other wedding suppliers in Newcastle upon Tyne. Today I want to tell you all about Michelle et Al Vintage Wedding Hire.
I met Michelle at a wedding fair at Durham Cricket ground last year. I wanted to do a series of vintage styled wedding shoots in Newcastle venues and Michelle was crazy enough to say yes!
You may have already seen my blog posts showing the results, but here are the links if you'd like to check them out:
I had originally thought that Michelle would just be supplying the dresses for the shoots, but her business is about much more than that, and Michelle ended up styling the entirety of each shoot. Her help and guidance was invaluable.
Michelle is based in North Shields and specialises in hiring out wedding dresses, bridesmaid's dresses, evening gowns, veils, tiaras, jewellery and other accessories. You can even hire vintage afternoon tea china and other tableware.
As you can see from the photographs above, the dresses and accessories that Michelle supplied were absolutely stunning, and because each item is vintage, you can be sure that it is unique. Michelle's dress hire starts from just £40.
Michelle is currently running a competition where you can win a dress of their choice for free! There are over 150 dresses to choose from in every style imaginable: fishtails, lace, silk, ballgowns, vintage, winter, summer, and even big designer names such as Ian Stuart and Pronovias to name but a few. The sizes range from 6 to 26.
The winner will be notified on 30th March 2015.
If you want your wedding to be vintage, unique and that little bit different I recommend you get in touch with Michelle and tell her I sent you!
