ROCK & ROLL, LOVE MOTEL THEMED WEDDING
“It took a few phone calls to my family in New Zealand, firstly to get them to book their tickets ASAP and second, to reassure them that it wasn’t a hoax, as we really had no plans in the near future to marry.” She laughed.
“My dress was from ASOS! With minimal time to source the right one it had to be done quickly and this site is a great go to. Linda Jane Doble in Northcote Melbourne altered it for me (at very short notice) and did an amazing job.”
“The theme was a ‘rock and roll, love motel’ vibe. This encapsulated us perfectly. I remember leaving the hotel room after getting ready, feeling like stars, jumping into our old girl which is a 1971 valiant and driving though the city to the venue with the windows down and black Sabbath turned up!” Pepe told us.
“The venue was amazing. A huge canvas to work with. It is down a gorgeous little laneway next door to a super cute bar for after drinks and a stone’s throw from the train station. Our bright pink neon upside down cross at the head of the table was nuts and the blue and pink velvet touches were amazing. We had a ‘love motel’ bed with a projector in the background playing an old 80s skateboard movie, there was also a retro sitting area with a vintage sink with ice and bubbly wine in it. On the wall was another neon sign saying, ‘it was all a dream’. I was also obsessed over the flowers! They were just magic!”
“Our cake was black with a skeleton hand coming out of it. It was carrot with layer upon layer of cream cheese goodness through it. It was divine. The food!! Aghh unbelievable! A modern take on junk food with fried chicken and mash and gravy and tacos and mini burgers (vegan options also). The caterer sourced some pecorino which my dad (who has passed) used to make with sheep milk in New Zealand and had won international awards for. It accompanied spaghetti which we used as part of the prop for photos on the love motel bed draped with pink velvet. Oh yes…… we also had a tattooist set up behind the ceremony with a flash sheet displayed in an old television set. Our daughters covered themselves in the stick-on ones, whilst many of the vendors got their first ever tattoos!!” She added.
“Our day was just magical, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. I really didn’t believe marriage would change us after being together this long, but it has brought such a lovely comforting vibe to our family.”
