Lisa and Bob meet their match before country vintage wedding

Wedding: 07/10/2016

Posted by lucy | 10 February, 2017

From classic machines to their love of the hunt, Lisa Dann and Bob Cooper incorporated their favourite things into their country vintage wedding.

Lisa, 38, met Bob, 35, over Tinder and later got engaged in Stockholm before heading home to the Suffolk coast for their vintage-inspired celebrations.

The couple wed on October 7, 2016 at Reydon Church, near Southwold in front of 100 friends and family.

Lisa and her bridesmaids arrived in her family’s 1940s military Jeep, with the bride wearing pheasant feathers in her hair from her first pheasant shot and even carried shotgun cartridges in her bouquet to reflect one of the couple’s favourite hobbies.

Following the ceremony, celebrations continued in a nearby field, where a tipi created a relaxed country feel.

“It was the best day of our lives,” Lisa says. “It was created by us, with everyone we love.”
