Old Skool Punk Rock Wedding: Kat & Gary

Kat and Gary’s Northampton wedding was pure punk rock! From the bride in a denim jacket with a custom patchwork back and Dr Marten boots, the skinhead groom in a 3-piece tartan suit, and their kids rocking mohawks, it really doesn’t get more authentic than this! Oh and Kat found her dress on eBay – in her exact size – for £100!

“To us our wedding was completely normal!”, began the bride “But we can see why to others it wasn’t! A groom in a three piece red tartan suit and Dr Martens and a bride in a wedding dress that is short at the front with Dr Martens and a denim jacket isn’t your usual I guess! Our reception venue wasn’t your run of the mill romantic kind of venue either, its an old bus station now used by a charity called Make A Difference (MAD) and has a very industrial feel to the outside, and a thrift shop with comic strip ‘wallpaper’ inside. We also had to have a DIY tattoo stall for our guests which just added to making it more us!! Oh and I doubt many brides travel by train drinking cans of bloody mary’s on the way to their wedding!!”
