Pretty in Pink: A Vintage Village Hall Wedding

Pretty in Pink Tattooed Wedding - Photography by Vicki (68)

Oh 
Danni and Ben, your wedding gives me LIFE. I am so excited to share it on the blog today.

This gorgeous heavily-tattooed pair were hitched in Maidstone, at a venue called Kent Life. “Our wedding theme was a bit of a mixture of 1950s, rural farm life and a tea party!” said Danni. “We love the 1950s anyway, I have a huge collection of dresses already and we just love the music and the dancing. I really love that our wedding was personal to us and wasn’t generic.”

“One of the highlights of the day was our fire breathing burlesque dancer!” she continued. “That’s pretty different to most weddings! We just wanted to be ourselves and also to make sure there was a lot going on all day. I would never want anyone to say they were bored, so we had wooden games, a sweetie table and a Rat Pack tribute. We also had close up magic and it really created such a great atmosphere with people crowding round and laughing!”

Katya Katya Shehurina 2015_2016 collection (17)

Obsessing over Latvian designer Katya Katya Shehurina‘s incredible wedding dresses is something I’ve been doing for a long time. Based in London, they specialise in breaking tradition with their bridal wear by bringing a fresh new look to vintage and boho styles. So, when they sent over these images of their dresses modelled by a gorgeous pink haired, tattooed babe which were photographed exclusively for Rock n Roll Bride, I was thrilled beyond belief.

If you’re still looking for your dream wedding dress then you’re going to want to check these out. Their elegant and slim yet unstructured silhouettes are super flattering, and their mix of exquisite French lace, Italian silk and hand embellished Swarovski detailing is second-to-none.

To me, there is nothing better than being able to completely customise the dress you walk down the aisle in. After all, being a Rock n Roll bride is all about being yourself, and being individual, so why would you want your wedding dress to be exactly the same as someone else’s?

Not only do Katya Katya Shehurina offter a bespoke service, but they can change anything on their made-to-order gowns too. If you want a neckline tweaked or a sleeve length altered, they’ve got you covered. Small changes can make a huge difference to how a wedding dress looks and they love to encourage their brides to let their imagination run wild so they end up wearing something truly unique.

They also offer the option for you to inject some colour into your outfit with their interchangeable coloured slips, which can be worn under any of their designs. They are not attached to the dresses so you could even buy more than one colour to change up your look throughout the day! How about wearing a white or nude slip for that traditional church ceremony and change into a blue, pink or even black one for the evening? They can make slips in any colour too so you an match it to your wedding theme!

Bohemian & Geeky South African Game Lodge Wedding

Chirese and Jannie had a fully DIY wedding at a game lodge in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains in South Africa. Their theme was bohemian and creative with a hit of geekiness thrown in for good measure.

“We chose to do a lot of the planning ourselves, by calling upon our family and friends to help out where needed”, began the bride. “Pinterest and blogs were a saving grace for us as we would easily share ideas with everyone involved. We got married at Shumba’s Rest Game Lodge in the lakeside chapel overlooking the sunset of the African bushveld. Our reception was at the main thatch roof hall at the lodge.”

“The aim was never to break away from the traditional wedding in the formal sense of the word”, she continued. “We just chose to combine the things we love as a couple and as individuals, such as his love of all things geeky and my love of all things funky! We both love Game of Thrones and Vikings and movies like Avengers so these were the inspiration for both of our hair styles!”

1950s Rockabilly Wedding at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum

Retro Ironbridge Gorge Museum wedding (42)

Patrick and Hazel love the 1950s and rockabilly style so they wanted to bring this into their day. When watching Grease one day, the bride also decided she needed a carousel at the wedding! Luckily they found  Blists Hill Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum in Shropshire which came complete with a fun fair!

“Our day was mainly about everyone having fun, so we made entertainment a priority for all ages to join in with”, began the bride. “We love our family and friends and wanted our day to be as memorable for them as it was to us. The other factor we took into account was that it had to be based on who we were. We started planning to the usual traditional path and quickly realised it was to normal to resemble our everyday life, so we scraped the planned and started from scratch.”

“We’ve always loved 1950s rockabilly style and that became our new basis for the wedding, Then one day I sat and watched Grease and did a bit of a bridezilla by demanding that I had a carousel! We started researching and found that it would be far too expensive until we found out that the museum down the road that had a Victorian fun fair with a carousel held weddings! It was perfect. Having the fair there was actually great for our guests too. We’ve been to lots of weddings and have noticed that there is always a quiet lull for the guests while the couple go to have their pictures taken. We wanted to fill the gaps by keeping the guests entertained and having the fair was perfect!”

Speakeasy Wedding in Canada

Nina and Christian wanted an intimate wedding. They had just 40 guests meaning they could have a small ceremony and a non-traditional reception at East Thirty Six, a restaurant in Toronto.

“It was very important to us to have an extremely intimate wedding full of love, that personified who we are as people and told our story”, said the bride. “We really appreciate antiques and music from the 1920s (and cocktails!) so it seemed perfect to have a wedding inspired by those times. We heard from our guests that they were amazed by the small things and all the attention to detail. We wanted each and every person there to feel special and that we appreciated their presence. We even had an actor dressed in a zoot suit to greet guests as they arrived. There wasn’t really any part of the day that followed the traditional wedding route. We had no bridal party and little formality during the ceremony.”

“We wanted to pay homage to the Prohibition era without taking on some of the more elaborate features of, say, a Gatsby-inspired wedding”, she continued. “Our vibe was grittier for the reception; the restaurant is quite dark and has some beautiful interior design elements. We used empty liquor bottles as vases, vintage teacups to serve cocktails in, and there wasn’t a feather or diamond decoration in sight!”

Breaking Vegas: Punk Rock Wedding at The Flamingo

Kenzie and Jeremy had one goal for their August wedding – to break Vegas! “As soon as we got engaged we knew we didn’t want a typical wedding”, said the bride. “We didn’t want anything in a church, or anything really traditional. We also knew we didn’t want to have anything huge, and one way to eliminate a massive guest list is to make it a destination wedding.”

“Our friends are some of the most amazing people on the planet and we wanted to be able to go somewhere where everyone could let loose and have a blast. So we decided to pick up and go to Vegas. It’s an amazing city where dreams can come true, and ours did. We wanted our wedding to be fun, light hearted, crazy, amazing. We were very honoured that Jeremy’s dad was there too. He hadn’t seen him for 20 years and he made it out to the wedding!”
