Sixties Psychedelia Meets Lana Del Rey Meets American Gothic

Giulia and Fabio were married in Cesena, northern Italy. The day was inspired by the bride’s love of Lana Del Rey and all things retro, and the groom’s appreciation for American Gothic aesthetics.

“We were inspired by the 1960s psychedelic world, Brian De Palma’s Carrie (without the blood bucket!), Sofia Coppola’s Virgin Suicides, Johnny Cash, King Dude and two iconic couples of the 1960s: Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra and Elvis and Priscilla Presley”, said Giulia. “We wanted to mix the Cowboy Psychedelia mood with a warehouse venue. We found Ca’Bevilaqua, a B&B in Santa Maria Nuova and it’s beautiful restored warehouse full of plants, tapestry and old paraphernalia.”

June 1967 was the beginning of the famous “Summer of Love” where the Monterey Pop Festival, with performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead, kicked off a time of of hope, optimism and real social revolution.

Photographer, Emma, told us all about her inspiration. “I’m a big fan of the 60s era and I really wanted to put something together to mark the 50th anniversary of this incredible period in our history. An alternative way of living was being explored and the emphasis was on travel, festivals, sex, drugs and, of course, Rock n Roll”

Their Autumn wedding took place in Long Beach, California, at at event space called Howl. The industrial yet casual vibe of the venue helped set the theme of the day. “Our wedding was a little bit modern, a little bit 60s, and very Californian”, said Leah. “We tried to stay inspired by what the event was all about… us. Our style, our taste in music, our idea of fun.”

They decided to marry in June as they wanted a summer wedding. “We also wanted to go on our honeymoon to Glastonbury straight away!” Natasha laughed. It took us just over a year to plan the wedding but right from the start we knew exactly what we wanted. We have a lot in common – more than just our love of The Beatles! We also love art, fashion, vintage, festival and films so we brought all those things into the theme of the day too. When it came to styling the day we both agreed we wanted a small, yet very relaxed wedding. We also wanted the day to echo weddings from the 60s and 70s, with a vintage feel. Our main colours were gold, taupe and mint.”

Jasmina and Mihael’s Slovenian wedding was all about nature. They kept things small and they spent only €1000 on the day. “Our colours were white, black and dark green with elements of wood, jute and lace”, said the bride. “We wanted to have a lot of wooden elements and to completely ban plastic from our table sets.”

Bianca and Lachlan’s met over a mutual love of 1960s music, “We were both in a record store 11 years ago and somehow a very shy and introverted Lachlan made his way over to me (not at all shy or introverted) and struck up a conversation.

They were married in February this year and wedding was inspired by all of these mutual loves, but particularly the 60s and films. “We absolutely adore the 1950s and 1960s so right from the beginning we knew that the wedding would have a reflection of those tastes”, explained Bianca. “I spent hours looking online at old wedding photos from both eras which gave me the inspiration for my dress, headpiece, gloves and veil along with the inspiration for our magnificent cake!”
