Vintage Pin Up & Burlesque Wedding

Steph and Chris’ first date was at a  burlesque show in Liverpool and they decided to recreate that atmosphere for their wedding! They infused their eclectic tastes into a perfect day of vintage, Rock n Roll, burlesque and mid-century classic style in a local historic venue. One of the acts they saw on their fist date, Suzie Sequin, even played at their reception!

They began their day with a traditional church wedding. “Although our evening was what some might consider unconventional we had a traditional wedding ceremony in a beautiful setting,” began Steph. “Port Sunlight is a historic village and Christ Church, while quite ordinary from outside, is breathtakingly beautiful inside. It is said to have the longest aisle in Britain (which didn’t help with my wedding nerves!)”

Vintage Pin Up Wedding with a Touch of The Great Gatsby

Bre and Matt’s wedding had a vintage yet moody theme with some Great Gatsby references. They were married in British Columbia in Canada in September. Their ceremony was on a rooftop overlooking the Okanagan Lake.

“We met when were were 13 and aged 17 we agreed that if we weren’t married to other people by 25 we’d marry each other!” Bre began. “Life took us on separate paths for a while, but we reconnected and actually started dating when we were 23. Not long after we started dating, we went on a big road trip, and one night on the California coast Matt told me he loved me. Fast forward two years and Matt planned another trip for us, which brought us back to the exact same place he told me he loved me. That night he proposed to me on the balcony overlooking the ocean. That promise we made when we were 17 had been kept, and at 25 we were engaged!”

Fifties Rockabilly & Pin Up Wedding

Monica and Charl’s South African wedding was a fun mix of the 1950s, rockabilly and pin up. The bride has always been obsessed with the era and she idolised Marilyn Monroe, so it was like the perfect theme for them.

“I always wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe on my wedding day”, she explained. “I also love vintage cameras and radios so I thought it would be really cool to incorporate the vintage goods with the 1950s stars to give the feeling of going back in time.”

“When we started planning the wedding the one thing I kept repeating to myself was ‘I want to be different, stay true to who I am’. With this in mind, we tried to stay away from the everyday wedding trends. I feel that I accomplished this by having a ‘2-in-1’ dress. It was long for the ceremony but we changed the skirt for the reception to be a short, fifties style.”

“Our wedding was a culmination of everything we love”, said the bride. “Music, fashion, classic cars, dancing, tattoos, comfort food and big parties… We threw in everything! I would say our theme was a 1950s vintage rockabilly and DIY extravaganza! Everyone said this was the most DIY’ed wedding they had ever seen, as well as the only rockabilly wedding they had ever experienced.”

Sioux and Tommy wanted their wedding to reflect their combined attitudes and what their life is all about. Sioux is a pin up girl and Tommy loves hot rods and Rock n Roll. Their relationship is basically straight out of Pulp Fiction! Not surprisingly their wedding theme was a rockabilly, hot rod, Rock n Roll all out fun fest complete with cars, a candy table and a Harley Davidson set up next to the card table!

“Our ceremony was short but filled with references to Game of Thrones, fishing (Tommy is a fisherman!) and making sure I knew I had to obey (!)” explained Sioux. “At the beginning our 103lb Doberman Gunnar walked down the aisle with a sign that said, ‘Daddy here comes your girl’. Our officiant was a good friend of ours and really went the extra mile when writing up how to perform our ceremony. He even shot fireballs from his cuffs at our introduction! We aren’t religious so our officiant’s special touches really meant the world to us! The funny thing is we were BOTH late to our own wedding. We were both stressing over being tardy to the other but in the end neither of us realised the other was late!”
