Lacey-Lee channelled Priscilla Presley for her bridal look. Her dress was an original vintage number which she had reworked to the exact style she wanted. The groom, Cam, is of Orcadian heritage so he wanted to wear traditional Scottish attire. Not an obvious paring you might think, but it really works!
The theme of combining both their passions continued into the rest of the wedding. “Cam and I always knew we weren’t going to have a normal wedding”, Lacey-Lee said. “We both have quirky interests and we wanted it to be a collaboration of lots of different elements. We are both touring musicians so music was also always going to play a huge part. I decided to DJ which allowed me to really set the tone exactly how we wanted it to feel. It also made the evening really special.”
“Our catering was also unique. We didn’t want the typical buffet or sit down mean so when everyone entered the reception we had the room centred around a huge food display with beautiful canapés and a dessert bar. Then later, we served gourmet tacos!”
The day was held at Whonnock Lake Centre in Maple Ridge, just outside of Vancouver. “I would call our wedding theme ‘Mystical Mod'”, Lacey-Lee continued. “The moody, enchanted forest backdrop with traditional Scottish styling representing the mystical elements, and the vintage brass décor and sixties styling represented the Mod.”
“A lot of my DIY was buying the brass items for the décor from thrift stores. I also created all the signage and laid out the reception furniture. I loved how everything came together in the end. It’s how I visualised it in my head. From the mood, décor, food, music… It was perfect.”
