Art Deco Meets Glam Rock Wedding at The Roxian Theatre

Heather and Andy’s July wedding was a red carpet event meets glam dance party! Hosted at The Roxian Theatre, which was built in 1929, the art deco surroundings also influenced the theme. They had lots of black and gold as well as jewel tones.

“We wanted a glam red carpet style evening wedding without the stuffiness and knew our venue would play a huge role in setting the vibe”, began the bride. “Our shared passion is music and we spent a lot of our eight-year relationship attending concerts and music festivals together, so we knew right off the bat a concert venue would be our ideal space. We wanted our guests to look and feel amazing, so fashion-wise, whatever that meant to them was cool with us. We offered guests booze as soon as they arrived, and invited them to witness the ceremony ‘concert style’ from the VIP mezzanine boxes.”

Moody Meets Art Deco Wedding with a Dog & Toddler Bridal Party!

They say never work with children or animals but Lane and Amanda threw that, and many other old adages and traditions, out the window when it came to planning their big day – they had their dog, Penny, and Amanda’s son, River, as the only members of their bridal party!

Instead of a first look, Lane and Amanda decided to do a ‘first touch’. They had gifts to give each other, and so stood round a corner from one another to exchange them and have a precious moment together before the celebrations kicked off.

The moment that Amanda had thought about the most in the lead up to their wedding was walking down the aisle. “I definitely thought I would be sobbing and unable to hold myself together,” said Amanda, “but when I saw everyone out there and Lane standing at the end of the aisle, I was overcome with immense joy in the form of hysterical laughter. I just could not stop laughing!”

Goth Meets Tropics Meets Art Deco Monochrome

Kristen and Pete were married at Panama Dining Room in Fitzroy, Victoria. Their theme was very much influenced by their venue, and the bride’s love of all things vintage. “The wedding was a goth/ tropical/ Art Deco in black and white mash-up,” began the bride. “Think Flying Down to Rio meets The Addams Family. We also decided we wanted everyone to wear a hat, as Pete is known for always wearing one.”

Having being a collector of vintage fashion for over 30 years, Kristen knew she wouldn’t be able to find what she wanted in a normal bridal shop, so she decided to design her own black wedding dress with the help of her friend Eszter Molnar of EM Originals. “My biggest saving was my dress. I was quoted $3500 by another dressmaker and he kept wanting to make it very ‘bridal’ with 8,305 buttons up the back and a built in corset. I wanted a dress I could chop up and wear again. In the end we did it ourselves for $700. The fabric was $100 and I paid her $600, though I think she deserved way more.”

Poirot-Themed Wedding at a Vintage Motorsport Museum with Tiny Tony the Miniature Pony!

When a bride describes the inspiration for the wedding as “a fun episode of Poirot with lots of tiny animals”, you KNOW it’s going to be an alternative wedding, and an amazing day! Frankie and Chris (or Jaffa as most people call him) got married on 5th October 2018 at The Brooklands Museum in Surrey. It was the home of an old Motorsports racetrack but is now a museum for vintage vehicles – cars, planes and buses.

As soon as we saw their beautiful pictures by Nikki van der Molen we squealed with delight – the miniature pony is called Tiny Tony!! I doesn’t get any cuter than that! They arranged to have a him there for an hour or so in the afternoon for the guests to meet him. He was very sociable and made for the most adorable photo ops! Animal Magic also brought along a few dogs and a the most laid back friendly cat ever.

Phantom of the Opera Meets Interview with a Vampire

Misty and David’s Memphis wedding was 1930s formal meet 1800s masquerade ball. And as a couple who hit it off discussing Dali’s rare Alice In Wonderland paintings, we’d expect nothing less than artistic brilliance. At their first meeting with their wedding planner Misty informed her she wanted their ceremony to look like something out of Interview with a Vampire, and a mixture of 1920s and 1930s Hollywood glam meets old world Parisian brothel!

“David and I love the music and formality of the big band era by day, but by night are deeply intrigued and inspired by the era of Romanticism,” Misty explains. “Our ceremony was therefore inspired by a mixture of elements from Phantom of the Opera and Interview with a Vampire – formal yet dark, intense and mysterious.”

Rock n Roll Speakeasy Wedding

Musicians Terrianne and Don met when the bride auditioned for Don’s band nearly a decade ago. Their mutual love of music inspired their wedding, from the venue choice to the entertainment. They wanted something glamorous and special, a day that truly felt like them.

“I auditioned for his punk band nine years ago”, Terrianne explained. “We gigged around the country together and got really close. After six months we just ended up together. Like I wrote in my wedding vows to him, from the moment I met him in that audition room I knew I was going to end up with him, as corny as that may sound.”

The wedding was held on 29th December at The Earl of Doncaster, a really incredible venue decked out in an authentic art deco style to reflect its 1938 origins. The couple took this backdrop as the jumping off point for their theme and decorations. “My husband has always been a punk musician and I’ve always gone for the pin up jazz style”, Terrianne explained. “The best way for me to describe our wedding theme would probably be a Rock n Roll speakeasy with vintage glam Hollywood glam style.”
