A Vintage Rockabilly Wedding: Molly & Sam

Molly & Sam’s beautiful vintage rockabilly wedding was held at The Promethean in Adelaide.

Before the ceremony, the couple met at Cafe Salsa – a 50’s themed beach cafe – for photographs. They also has some shots taken at the skateboard park as Sam and his friends can often by found hanging out there.

“Sam and his mates did some brief skate manoeuvres and everybody prayed nobody took a spill and injured themselves,” photographer Helen told me. “Then it was on to The Promethean for the ceremony and a cool party with groovy music. They walked down the aisle to ‘Rose of my Heart’ by Jonny Cash. The party went on until 5am!”

Thank you to Molly & Sam and their photographer Helen for sharing.
