50s Rock n Roll Wedding: Alison & Liam

Bride in 50's style wedding dress- creative wedding photography
Alison & Liam had a 50’s style rock n roll wedding at Botley Hill Farmhouse in Surrey. They are such a fun couple together, and they planned a wedding that was reflective of their personalities and alternative style. Alison was Marilyn Monroe’s cooler tattooed lookalike in her 50’s rockabilly wedding dress, accented with red dotty shoes and beads. Liam wore a mod style suit with a red gingham shirt and slick black waistcoat and tie.

The warm and personal ceremony was held at Croydon Town Hall with just close friends and family. The couple left in a vintage VW campervan, and we stopped en route for some portraits in the lovely afternoon sun. Arriving at Botley Hill Farmhouse, more guests were waiting to greet the newlyweds. The marquee in the pub garden was decorated with the rockabilly theme, with tables named after places along Route 66. Liam made an awesome replica gas pump which doubled as a card postbox. They had black and red cupcakes, with a day of the dead style skeleton cake topper. The table settings and favours were pin badges made with their own designs. After the wedding breakfast there were speeches by a whole host of friends and family, all with something funny but also something heartfelt to say to the happy couple. More guests arrived for the evening’s celebrations, and danced into the night with a disco of alternative classics (a refreshing change from Rihanna for someone who goes to too many wedding discos!) It was an absolute pleasure to be there for the wedding of two fun & happy people, so very meant for each other- congrats Liam & Alison! Here are some photos of their day…

  1. First of all – the little MPEG at the start is spinnerific:) What a brilliant job you did here for them. Friendly, fun, zazzy and cool. Alison and Liam look like they had an amazing day and I love their outfits. I’m a sucker for a bit of DoD detailing too.
