Punk Rock Wedding: Lauren & Con

Being unapologetically punk rock in their everyday lives, having a punk themed wedding was really the only option for Lauren & Con, who tied the knot at Pavilion Gardens, Mt Tamborine, Australia. “We’re punks so we wanted to have a wedding we’d enjoy but still wanted it to be nice and have most of the usual wedding trimmings for both us and the family”, Lauren wrote. “We weren’t trying to do things differently on purpose, we just did things the way we wanted and it all turned out awesome.”

“We met at a gig and going to gigs is one of our favourite things to do together so we had to have our own after the wedding. We had concert tickets instead of normal invitations, we had skulls on pretty much everything and Con rocked a bright red mohawk! He plays guitar so we had custom guitar picks made by Grover Allman that had our names, wedding date and a skull and cross-bone printed on it. We put them on our favour boxes which had red chocolate hearts inside. The colour theme was red, black and white which turned out wicked.”

(Punk!) Rock n Roll indeed! Thank you to Lauren & Con and their wedding photographer Millyjane Photography for sharing with us today.

I’d love to know if any other grooms-to-be out there planning to rock a mohawk on their wedding day?

    Thanks Emma. I made it! It was a mudcake for them to take back to the Shed for after the wedding and cupcakes for everyone to have as dessert at the reception. Had lots of fun making all the skulls and decorating them

    loved this wedding! i think because they balanced traditional with punk so well, it really made the punk shine. its a beautiful wedding!!

  3. eurogirl800 is right, the wedding has this strange balance of punk and tradition which at first sounds like it won’t work, but in the end it does. The photos are gorgeous and it looked like the wedding was a blast.
