Something Old, Something New: How to Add Modern Touches to Your Timeless Wedding

Your wedding; it’s going to be a once in a lifetime event. And for some, it’s a day you’ve been dreaming about for years. But whether you’re brand new to wedding planning or have already got your vision pinned down, those 24 hours of love and fun are ones you’ll look back on for many hours more.

Timeless is a word that pops up a lot during the planning. You want to love every moment of your wedding while you live it. But you also want to feel the same when you pull out the photo album to reminisce in a decade. And when you show pictures to your one-day grandchildren, you want them to love it too.

So, just how do you pack your celebration with your personalities, with the promise that it’ll be future proofed, too? Take inspiration from Gemma and Sean, who nailed it for their barn wedding, captured by Heledd Roberts.

Whimsy and white

From the very first days of the white bridal gown, this delicate hue has been destined for weddings. Its long-standing history lends an instantly timeless feel. Marry this with more modern design details for a contemporary effect you won’t fall out of love with.

Gemma and Sean tied the knot surrounded by an amazing twist on a barn. Traditional gable ends and window frames were reimagined, seemingly floating around the couple and their guests. A true marriage of old and new. The effect was enchanting, the setting paying homage to the past, yet truly unique.

Style that sings

Take this approach and run with it during your planning, from your venue to the music, your attire to gifts for your bridesmaids, and even wedding sneakers too!

Bride Gemma looked incredible in a figure-hugging design with a plunging neckline and illusion lace capped sleeves. A deep scoop back adds a distinctly modern feel, contrasting beautifully with the sweeping lace train. Modern meets traditional, and it’s truly irresistible.

But Gemma didn’t stop with her dress. She also opted for the perfect footwear for the occasion – wedding sneakers that would enable her to wander the grounds, pose for pictures with smoke flares and dance the night away, all while feeling her beautiful best and without a sore sole in sight.

A step towards forever

We personalised a stylish and super comfy pair of Nike Air Force 1s for the bride. Keeping it classic in white, each shoe displayed her newly married name on the side and wedding date on the heel.

They’ll also stand the test of time. Opt for a neutral palette like Gemma, with timeless white teamed with glimmers of subtle gold that tie in with their wider wedding theme. Nike wedding shoes may be an unexpected choice for a traditional wedding, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be a match made in heaven.

Considered colourways and heartfelt personalisation are the key. And on a day that’s all about milestones and the memories you’ll make, ensuring you feel comfortable and ready to put your best foot forwards is worth its weight in gold. Discover the possibilities for your Nike wedding shoes.
