Tattoo Britannia Wedding: Lisa & Paul

November 6, 2012

“Being the Jubilee year as well as the Olympics, a red, white & blue themed wedding seemed fitting”, began newlywed Lisa who married Paul this Summer. “I sat with my bridesmaids and mum the night before the wedding watching the opening ceremony with great pride. The bright colour options coupled with my love of rockabilly styling and 1940s glamour added such vibrancy and fun to the day. Paul and I also both love tattoos so we wanted to bring this into our day. The swallows on the wedding cake, invitations, table decorations and gifts were all tied together with tattoo images.”

Lisa even dyed her hair red for the wedding, and despite some last minute panic that it was ‘too pink’ (cue a rush re-dye job on the morning of!) it looked amazing. She wore a stunning red wedding dress by Veromia Couture, bought from Curvy Bridal in Boroughbridge, Iron Fist Union Jack shoes and a headpiece from Voodoo it Yourself. She made the button bouquets for herself and her bridesmaids from an idea she saw on Rock n Roll Bride.

Awesome! Thank you to Lisa & Paul and their photographers Tux & Tales Photography for sharing with us today.
