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.”

Naturally-arranged flowers and foliage adorned the couple’s vintage transport, church pews and, of course, bouquets.
Lisa designed her wedding dress herself and it was brought to life by Love Couture. She teamed it with a glamorous fur and pheasant feather headpiece to complete the vintage look.
Lisa allowed her bridesmaids to choose their own dresses, which helped create a relaxed vibe with plenty of vintage flair.
Bob wore RNLI personalised socks as a nod to his voluntary work as a lifeboat crew member.
“We smiled and laughed from start to finish.” says Lisa.
