Red Hot Rockabilly

Holden Oldies Limo Services are one of our favourite wedding transportation businesses.  Their lovingly restored classic “yellow cab” is rapidly gaining iconic status here in Brisbane offering a fresh and unique option for couples.  We were recently catching up with Brian and Linda and they shared with us this fabulous inspired shoot photographed by Helen McConnell Photography that they created last year with a few other awesome Brisbane wedding vendors.  Of course after seeing the shoot we simply had to share their work with all of you!

Inspired by Linda’s rockabilly “tattoo” style necklace, Celebration Design Studio created an incredible stationery suite carrying the rockabilly tattoo theme through.

Harry’s Diner, a replica of original 1950s American drive-in diners, was the perfect location for their shoot.  Their colour palette of red, black and white made for a super fun 50s inspired wedding shoot. Both Brian and Linda from Holden Oldies were the gorgeous couple featured in the shoot with Brian wearing a truly rockabilly style black and red outfit and Linda in a short tea length dress with red accessories that really popped!

With makeup by Elegantly Perfect Makeup Artistry and retro hairstyling by Beauty By Corinne, Linda looks ever so cute.  We are a huge fan of the fresh red roses and feathers in her hair and a black birdcage veil instead of a traditional white/ivory veil.

Yum, yum, yum… this fabulous cake was created by the flour girl and tied in perfectly with the rockabilly inspired wedding invitation suite.

Floral arrangements including the brides bouquet with scattered diamantes and black feathers were created by Floral Fantasies.

Isn’t Harry’s Diner the perfect place for a 50s inspired event!

We absolutely love Holden Oldies yellow cab inspired wedding car.  With so many couples keen to embrace vibrant colours in their wedding it really is a fun vehicle to arrive in, or for the fellas to arrive in style.  Holden Oldies also have a black Lincoln convertible coming soon…. can’t wait to see!!!
