Hello, and welcome to Chic Vintage Brides! Whether you are a newly-engaged bride-to-be excitedly starting out on your wedding planning journey (congratulations!, by the way), or a wedding pro looking for the perfect place to showcase your work, it is so lovely to see you here. Do pull up a pew and stay a while!
After our own wedding in 2010, and following a big move to the other side of the world, Chic Vintage Brides was created as a way for me to continue to swoon over wedding dresses and to fill an abundance of spare time. It was a hobby that quickly became a passion and, over the course of a couple of years, a thriving business.
7 years later Chic Vintage Brides is synonymous with timeless and romantic wedding inspiration, dedicated to inspiring couples to create a day that is unique, personal and a true celebration of their love, a day that from start to finish is ‘them’ – whether that means wearing a family heirloom gown, or a Jenny Packham; exchanging their vows in a local church surrounded by 150 loved ones, or by a lake just them a celebrant, and witnesses.
Publishing stylish weddings, beautifully creative styled shoots, the most perfect wedding colour palettes and jawdropping fashion, CVB inspires thousands of brides & grooms every month, connecting them with the vendors, creatives and professionals that can bring their wedding dream to life. It is consistently listed in the Top 100 Wedding Blogs and with over 4 millions followers on Pinterest was named as one of ‘11 Inspiring Wedding Pinners To Follow‘ by The Huffington Post & one of 10 Pinterest Boards to Follow by Vogue Paris.
Chic Vintage Brides is also a founding member of Aisle Society! An exciting new collaboration between 30 of the top wedding bloggers with a collective reach of over 3 million, Aisle Society is a beautiful hub of wedding inspiration, designed to lead couples to the best online wedding content around, and I am proud to be a part of it.
I’m Amy, a wedding-obsessed born-in-the-wrong-era lover-of-romance, and the owner and editor of Chic Vintage Brides!
I live with my husband, Mr E, by the sea in Clive, New Zealand. My home now for the last 8 years (originally from England), surrounded by the beautiful landscapes – mountains to the west, beaches to the east and vineyards nestled everywhere in between, Hawke’s Bay quickly became the place I feel most ‘at home’. I love just spending time pottering around our light-filled villa; or when we have a bit more time, escaping to somewhere new for the weekend, to explore this beautiful country we call our home, as well as to unplug, relax and recharge!
Away from the blog, you’ll find me and Bodie, our crazy and completely lovable Cockerpoo, on one of our daily walks; snuggled on the sofa watching an old movie – anything with Joan Crawford, Bette Davis or Barbara Stanwyck especially!; or reading – I am a Jane Austen-aholic! and when we lived in England, regularly dragged my husband to visit her house in Chawton. I love Skype, baking, period dramas, the colour teal, Pimms and to listen to the birds sing; and the things I miss most about England are foxes, hedgerows and Christmas (celebrating Christmas in 30 degress just isn’t the same) – I don’t however miss the ‘Summers’, traffic jams or house spiders!
It is lovely to meet you, let’s catch up again soon!
