As you listen, imagine it’s your wedding day. You’ve got that perfect vintage dress, your hair is perfectly set and beautifully accessorised, and your gorgeous groom is on your arm….

You stroll across the sunny lawn at your wedding venue, chatting to guests as you see them and everyone’s smiling and congratulating you both…

You have a glass of Pimms in one hand, a bijou little bouquet in the other and your arm is interlinked with your new hubby’s – everything’s as pretty as a picture…

While all this is going on, you’re listening to love songs from your favourite era – not only is your wedding visually themed around the 1950s, your music creates a wonderful atmosphere of nostalgia.

Vintage wedding music: Alexandra Carter

The beautiful vintage wedding music you’re listening to was sent to me by Alexandra Carter who sings for a band who are simply called Vintage.

The beautiful Alex Carter

Their repertoire includes dozens and dozens of songs to fit your vintage wedding theme:

  • Dream a little dream of me
  • As time goes by
  • Let’s face the music and dance
  • Moon river
  • Over the rainbow
  • Summertime
  • You do something to me

Based in London, Alex Carter can provide beautiful music for your vintage wedding in a choice of styles: please visit her website www.alexandracarter.com to find out more.

Vintage is the smooth sound of jazz and swing with Alex Carter, Christian Vaughan and Dave Chamberlain on bass.

If you’re planning a more intimate vintage wedding Alex told me she’s also now working with the fab Dave, the bass player in Vintage- as a guitar/voice duo as well – she says it works really well for smaller spaces.
