What is All Grown Up?
All Grown Up is a Vintage Wedding & Events company set up by Madeleine Shone in 2014. It specialises in bespoke, unusual, vintage or festival themed weddings where the happy couple want somethings a little bit different...a little bit special. All Grown Up hire out individual items for smaller affairs and plan visuals for whole venues for larger events. Why is it called All Grown Up? The name origins from Madeleines Blog 'allgrownupinlondon' that she began writing when she lived in London. It has meaning both for Madeleine and the couples that she works with, a sort of coming of age that people often feel after taking the step towards marriage.
Madeleine grew up in South Manchester before being lured over The Pennines, to Leeds, at the age of 18 to study Fashion Design at Leeds University. After becoming disheartened by the Fashion Industry, Madeleine worked as a Graphic Illustrator for 2 years before deciding to use her creative flair for the greater good and become a Fashion & Textiles teacher at Secondary School. After completing her PGCE in Leeds, Madeleine moved to the big city of London for 3 years to teach. Madeleine married her partner Sam in 2013, finally feeling that she was 'all grown up'. See her wedding story here... Madeleine set up All Grown Up on her return to The Homeland (Manchester).
What does the future hold for All Grown Up?

We have some very exciting things in the pipe line, including a ready to wear collection and bespoke dressmaking service. Please keep your eyes peeled and check back for regular updates! :)
