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. 


1950s Style Wedding Dress

After being with Leolin for 12 years, Twila had spent some time day dreaming about the kind of dress she’d wear when she got married, and she spent a lot of time trying to find it once she was engaged! She knew she wanted something sassy and sexy, but also fun.


She found her short, stylish wedding dress in a local shop, and knew it was the one! It wasn’t too bridal, and didn’t have a train and it suited the rockabilly style bride perfectly. To make her dress unique, Twila added two extra petticoats in red and ivory, and twirled a lot to show them off! She had two faux fur wraps to choose from, one in classic ivory and one in a fierce leopard print and also added a lace sash to her dress for a unique look.

Finally, her look was completed with a pair of Rainbow Couture shoes, which she had dyed ruby red.
