Disney Inspired Tattoo Artist’s Wedding in Thailand

Disney inspired tattooed wedding (54)

It’s not often that Disney and heavily tattooed couples go together, but for Vicky and Lee, that’s exactly what inspired their destination wedding in Thailand.

The tattoo artist pair met when Vicky got a job at the studio where Lee was working. “Our first meeting was on a night out at Rock City, when he approached me with a drink to congratulate me getting a receptionist job at the tattoo studio where he worked”, the bride told me. “He was so shy that it’s probably the most words I heard come out of him for the next few years. After maybe six years I actually got the opportunity to learn how to tattoo myself. He’d always been supportive of this and it’s now lead to us opening our own studio with a couple of friends.”

The couple got engaged Thailand a few years so it was only fitting that they returned there for their wedding. “It’s a place that means a lot to us so we knew we wanted to get married there”, she continued. “When you have so many special memories you want to share them with those closest to you. Although its not always a popular decision to do a wedding abroad, we couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. Its the land of smiles and is so beautiful.”

Surely you know what a kiss is?” she asked, aghast. “I shall know when you give it to me,” he replied stiffly, and not to hurt his feeling she gave him a thimble. “Now,” said he, “shall I give you a kiss?” and she replied with a slight primness, “If you please.”

Obsessed with the Disney version of Peter Pan and Wendy, wedding photographer Nicki Komorowski decided she wanted to shoot a real life couple, inspired by her favourite love story. “I started obsessing about a grown up Peter with a huge ginger beard and a green suit!” she told me.

If someone were to ask me to list all of my favourite things, nearly everything in this wedding would feature: cats, tattoos, Disney, ears, pink, 80s tunes, glitter… I mean goodness, what’s not to love?! The wedding was held at Union/Pine in Portland, in December.

“Early on in the planning process we struggled with whether we needed a theme or not”, explained Lacey. “Ultimately we decided that the theme should be ‘us’ and the decisions came much easier after that. We didn’t feel any pressure to choose things that would fit snuggly in to a strict theme. Instead our ‘us’ theme meant that we included any and all of the things that make us happy including Disneyland, Elvis, our loved ones, tattoos, sprinkles, our favorite cocktails, photobooths, our cats, hearts, zombies, incredible food, 80s music, balloons, confetti, sparklers and so much more.”

Bonding through their mutual love of Disney, it was more than fitting that Brandon and Ashley were inspired by the happiest place on earth for their wedding. These guys went all out! The day was held at Rancho Las Lomas and they had a real life zebra in attendance and a mermaid… no, I’m not kidding!

“We love a good theme and retro was the way to go for us”, began the bride. “We wanted a 1940s jungle explorer feel. The venue had Bengal tigers, white tigers, alpacas, wild cats, zebras, exotic birds and other wildlife which made it perfect! We had custom jungle cruise fast passes that had the return time for dinner, Jungle cruise news playing on a vintage record player at the entrance and 1940s music all around to set the mood. We also went all out with our bright flowers. The flowers really did it for us and brought the jungle feel we wanted to the wedding.

Dames in Disneyland

disneyland (41)

It seems like a lifetime ago, but just as I’m ramping up to head off to America again this week, Made You Look Studios sent over the photos from our Disneyland adventure in April. I’d never been before and on hearing this revelation Gala encouraged… nay insisted that they take me there for my birthday. Well who am I to turn down an invitation like that?!

Retro Disney Wedding Inspiration

I’m pretty sure there’s a little child in all of us who get excited when a Disney film comes on the TV. I personally can’t think of a much better lazy Saturday afternoon movie than Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid or Beauty & the Beast! Come on, admit it, you’re with me right?

So you can imagine my girlish elation when this retro Disney inspired bridal shoot landed on my desk. “Whilst spending a fun filled day at Disneyland and watching all the young couples hand in hand in the place where dreams come true, the inspiration just came to me”, explained florist Jacqueline of J Morgan Flowers. “What could sum up young love better than Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their everlasting love?”
