Retro romance on the rails

Welcome to Railway Weddings! 

If you’re looking for a unique wedding theme, the romance of the rails couldn’t be more perfect. The golden age of travel was a glamorous and elegant time, giving you plenty of options to explore when it comes to venue, bridalwear, hair and make-up, design and decoration.

A train theme also lends itself perfectly to a quirky and unusual wedding. You can go for rock ‘n’ roll retro or vintage va-va voom to create a look that will make your special day one that everyone will remember.

There are all kinds of ways you can incorporate trains and railways into your wedding day. From transporting your guests from the ceremony to the reception on a chartered luxury train or vintage steam train, using a train station or rail museum as the venue, or actually getting married or blessed on the train itself, the vintage wedding railway theme is a flexible one.
