Forget your usual wedding day with white chauffeur driven limos and meringue dresses, there’s nothing traditional about this couple’s wedding. Bride-to-be Annette from Greenock, Scotland, was so taken with the smash hit film of last year Mama Mia that she decided to have a 70’s Abba theme for her big day.
Luckily for Annette her future husband George McQuaid was game for the idea and snapped up a lime green suit from the internet straight away. The bride ditched the conventional ivory gown and instead opted for a thigh-skimming hippy-chick mini dress complete with white knee high boots for the full Abba effect.
The wedding guests were also keen to get in on the action and all turned up in their 70’s inspired attire. The bride’s mother said everyone embraced the idea, admitting that she thought it was because “we all have a bit of madness in us.”
Instead of the usual Rolls Royce complete with ribbons and flowers, this couple rolled up to their wedding ceremony in a traditional 70’s vehicle; the iconic VW Camper Van. The wedding party certainly drew some attention when they pulled up outside Greenock Town Hall with many workers from nearby offices coming out to have a better look at the novelty wedding gang.
Most importantly a great time was had by all as the blushing bride said “Everyone got right into it, from my son, Ross, who’s 11, to my Gran Lena, who is 77.”
