Twila & Leolin’s Real Wedding

After meeting 12 years ago in New Zealand, Twila and Leolin discovered they had a connection that couldn’t be dampened by distance or time. They experienced lots of the world together and apart before settling in England, where they got married in a rockabilly inspired wedding with lots of handmade details.

Twila left her bridal beauty plan to the last minute, but happened to stumble across the most perfect places, all totally by chance! Twila’s 1950s style hair do was taken care of by the ‘amazing’ Rockalily Cuts. She had a hair trial where they experimented with a lot of authentic methods and retro styles, and finally decided on a classic 50s look with her birdcage veil and some borrowed blue hair pins her sister had worn on her wedding day.


Twila hired Miss Honey Bare to do her wedding makeup, based on one of her hairdresser’s recommendations and the results of an amazing trial! She chose to have an edgy pin-up look with scarlet lips and dramatic winged eyeliner.

Finally, the bride had her nails done by Hula Nails. She felt at home with the girls in the store and loved their work. She opted for a bold cherry red nail polish and black and white polka dots on her toes!
