1950’s Diner-Style Charm

Holy 1950s wedding awesome Batman! I love it when a couple really get into a theme and do it so well – so well in fact that their photographer Al Overdrive even dressed up as a 1950’s style reporter (photo below.)

Michelle & Craig got married in style at Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Everything screams 1950s retro rockabilly charm – from the pink Cadillac and the diner style grub (giant hotdogs, create your own burgers, fries, waffles, pancakes, ice cream sundaes, Oreo cheesecake!) to the Vivienne Westwood shoes (of which I will never tire) and Michelle’s custom ‘Beverlywood’ Dolly Couture dress. 

Thanks to Al for sharing this fun wedding today

    Lovely! LOVE Dolly’s Beverlywood dress but terrified of ordering a dress blind from USA over the internet. Would love to hear how you found the experience Michelle!

  2. I was scared too, but then i saw ALLLLL the lovely british brides on Dollys Facebook page who looked amazing and so i thought… HELL YEAH!
    I wasn’t really fussed on loosing lots of weight i just didnt want gain anymore! after all, the 50’s were all about curves… Just make sure you get measured properly and you will be fine : )

    Gorgeous photos! Love that it looks like you’re having FUN rather than more of the posed, magazine pictorial shots you see way too often online. You all look so HAPPY and in love! I love the hair, dress & make-up!

    Absolutely fantastic shots. Have been looking at a few things on this website and been thinking, its all well and good but I live in Llanelli, i haven’t got a chance in hell of doing anything like this. Very pleased you have proved me wrong.
