Tania & Jay’s “Love Rocks” Wedding

June 3, 2011

“Music is what brought us together (this quote was featured on our invite) and we decided to base our wedding around our mutual love of music,” newlywed Tania told me. “We decided that we would use the term ‘Love Rocks’ throughout our wedding and incorporate the music theme through all the wedding details.”

“Our wedding was rock, glam and vintage. We had an awesome 1950’s Vintage Bus that had been restored. The board at the front of the bus said “Love rocks”. Our bomboniere was music note keyrings with scalloped gift tags that said ‘Love Rocks’ on them. The centrepieces were DIY lace covered votive candle holders with vintage music note love heart table scatters and shabby chic table numbers. We used red black and white as our wedding colours as music paper is black and white and roses are red. Birds were also featured on our invites, tea light candle holders in centrepieces and on bunting decorating the reception as birds are connected to love and song. We both wanted a wedding that reflected us as a couple and we wanted it to be fun and colourful.  The music we used in our wedding was also a very important part of our wedding.”

As you can see Tania & Jay’s wedding is perfect for Rock n Roll Bride. They used personal and crafted details as well as a load of awesome independent suppliers that they found though Etsy to make their wedding totally unique. “Tania & Jay’s wedding was fun, well planned and totally THEM, ” confirmed their photographer Janine Kaye. “Jay has a huge passion for music and Tania loves crafty stuff. She organised everything herself and it looked amazing. For the location photos we wanted something a little different with an urban grungy feel..an abandoned warehouse, their favourite music store and red wall to highlight their fun props.”

Thanks to Tania & Jay and photographer Janine for sharing these today.
