Australian John & Marnie spent six weeks travelling around the US for their honeymoon after their wedding in Las Vegas. They were in town for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Festival and they loved the idea of getting married there. The ceremony was held at Little Church of the West, a quaint little ‘mini church’ looking chapel, right at the south end of the strip and the after party was at Level 107 Cocktail lounge in the Stratosphere hotel – right at the north end!
“After a year of travelling Australia following the rockabilly dance and culture scene, John proposed to me with a beautiful sapphire and diamond engagement ring”, Marnie told me. “It was my Grandma’s favourite stone and we decided to marry 70 years and 1 day after my Grandma and Grandpa did! Where possible, we incorporated elements that honoured our families (both alive and departed) into our wedding.”
“I used my creativity to create bespoke elements infusing our vintage rockabilly style into our wedding. DIY was a great way of infusing our style into our event, which, when you’re like us and love all things non mainstream, can be very difficult to source.” The bride even handmade her own dress and headpiece.
I’m pretty sure I’ve found the most iconically Rock n Roll wedding idea ever. Just over the road from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas is the KISS ‘Hotter than Hell’ wedding chapel! Many of my readers head to Vegas to wed and so I know a whole bunch of you are going to get seriously excited about this. You’re welcome by the way!

They say, “Our stage, fashioned after KISS’ album cover for LOVE GUN, with theatrical quality lights, sound and fog machines that will set the tone for your concert wedding.
