A Punk, Rockabilly, Neo-Gothic, Country & Western Wedding

July 21, 2010

So Michelle & Mike’s engagement sesh was awesome and Michelle’s bridals were totally gorgeous…but you ain’t see nothing yet. Just you check out their wedding!

Their “Rockabilly, car kulture, punk culture, antiques, vintage & neo-traditional design and styling, neo-gothic, country/western, low-brow art, tattoo culture, vintage pin-up/greaser” theme perfectly reflected what they loved and how they live their lives on a daily basis. They were so excited to share this with all their friends and families (and now you Rock n Roll rabble too!)

The whole wedding was perfectly put together and customised by the couple to give the day a truly unique feel. Everything from Michelle’s dress – which she bought as a ‘standard’ dress and had red tulle and the red waist panel added to it and veil – which her Mum made; to the centrepieces – which they made themselves with a mix of antique Coke bottles with sand, red water, a gerbera and curled wood; to the placecards and invitations– which they also made themselves, were unique and interesting.

Be sure to check out the full list of everyone and everything that went into this fabulous wedding after the ‘jump’

Thanks to Michelle & Mike and their photographer Carla for sharing these
