Shona & Levi’s Retro Blues Wedding

The inspiration for Shona & Levi’s wedding day, captured by Wendy Maley Photography, was a rockabilly / vintage wood & lace theme. “We both love just the rockabilly look with having that vintage 1940’s – 1950’s style yet bringing in the rock n roll feel with our tattoos and my coloured hair. The wood and lace still fit that style, but bringing in a more romantic feel and with Levi being a carpenter he used his skills to make a few things like our wishing well box and as well as 2 boxes that were on the bridal table to give it a more personal feel.”

When it came to selecting the wedding vendors they wanted to work with it ultimately came down to who could help with Shona & Levi’s vision for their wedding. Shona shares that there were some standout vendors – the venue where the staff were so organized & welcoming to not only Shona & Levi but to all their guests; their celebrant Steve was brilliant, friendly, funny and helped to make their ceremony light and funny but romantic all at the same time; their photographer Wendy was just simply amazing.  “She is so creative and I loved every single one of our photos. She is friendly and fun and I had so many of my guests compliment me on my choice of her as our photographer as she really made everyone feel comfortable.”

“After trying on a few dresses I found my dress which was full length. Wanting to keep more with the style of the wedding and to show off my shoes I took it to a dress maker who turned my full length dress into a tea length dress.”
