Booze-Themed Glam Rock Wedding with an Elvis Officiant

With playful and fun vows, full of Elvis puns in honour of their officiant, Kylie and Chris filled their day with the things they loved.

Kylie is a booze publicist, so they created a customised menu for their day. Sticking to their theme, they wanted the menu to really stand out and named all of the cocktails after their favourite Eagles’ songs. She told us, “I took the beverages very seriously! The Libations Menu was carefully curated, and I worked with the team at Backyard Originals (they’re a local team of bartenders that make liquor ready mixers) to create customised cocktail mixers so my cocktails could be pre-batched for easier service and to eliminate a wait at the bar.”

Flowers were mostly shunned in favour of disco balls, although $300+ worth of hot pink baby’s breath adorned the tables in gorgeous displays by Lucky Dog Studio. Kylie told explained, “My bouquet and Chris’ boutonniere were from Old City’s Petit Jardin en Ville – they were dried floral so we could keep them as keepsakes and are more sustainable. I also had a couple of dried Australian native flowers in my bouquet, as I’m an Aussie!”

Girly Glam Rock Wedding in Northern Ireland

Inspired by their love of rock music and some of their favourite movie moments, Jenn and Tommy planned a personal, rock ‘n’ roll and wedding at Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ballymena, Northern Ireland last summer. They opted for quite a ‘girly’ colour scheme with pinks, peaches and rose gold, but included many things that reflected Tommy too – not least of all a very special guest appearance from Iron Man himself!

“Music is the centre of our universe,” began bride Jenn. “Instead of coffee in the morning, we blast an earful of Aerosmith. Going to gigs together is our favourite past-time, we’re avid festival goers and Tommy is the singer for a hard rock band. So it was a no-brainer for us to use this as a starting point for our theme, and go from there.”

Jenn walked down the aisle to the Vitamin String Quartet’s version of Sweet Child o’ Mine. Their recessional was The Darkness’ I Believe In A Thing Called Love and their first dance was to I Remember You by Skid Row. Each of their tables was named after one of their favourite artists. They made table-tents which had the menu on one side and a portrait of the artist on the other, which was painted by Jenn.  “We didn’t really get the whole guestbook thing,” said Jenn, “it’s just something we think you’d look at once and put away in a cupboard somewhere. Instead, we bought a surfboard off Gumtree and sanded and painted it. We got our friend to make a vinyl sticker for it saying ’til death do us party’ and got everyone to sign that instead. We’re going to mount it on our kitchen wall so we can appreciate it all year round.”
