Rockabilly 50s wedding in Islington // Tahryn + Chris

This rockabilly and music-themed wedding in London was so full of colour and love! Tahryn and Chris’s ceremony was at Islington Town Hall and the reception at Canal 125, a funky venue on the canal, with a couples of hours in a nearby park to play lawn games. Tahryn has a 17-year-old daughter (you honestly would think they were sisters), who gave a moving speech and sang the first dance song. Her family lives in New Zealand so they couldn’t be there, but Chris asked them all to record videos for Tahryn, which he played during the speeches. Even I cried! The rings were held in a paua shell that can only be found in New Zealand, and Tahryn made most of the decorations herself. They had pinwheels and paper flowers made from music sheets, 50s pin-up images attached to them, vinyl records hanging from the windows, walls, mirrors and chairs, and the bridesmaids wore polkadot 50s dresses. There was a photo line hanging up, and they had fun photo games for guests – they had to use the polaroid to take specific photos described in the photo challenge sheets on the tables. The cake was a cupcake tower and the cake topper was a tiny version of them, standing on a vinyl record. So cute! The bouquets were paper poppies and every guest was given a homemade paper pinwheel so they knew which table they were sitting at. I hope you love this gorgeous colourful wedding!
