On this day in music history: May 1, 1967 - Elvis Presley marries Priscilla Beaulieu in a civil ceremony at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The ceremony will last only eight minutes and is attended by a small group of family and friends, followed by a press conference and reception attended by one hundred guests. The bride wears a floor length white chiffon wedding gown (of her own design), trimmed in seed pearls, topped with a three foot long white tulle veil and a rhinestone tiara. The groom wears a black brocade silk tuxedo and black western boots. The couple honeymoon in Palm Springs immediately after. Nine months to the day after their wedding, Priscilla gives birth to their only child, a daughter named Lisa Marie. After six years together, the marriage breaks down and the couple grow apart. Priscilla files for divorce in October of 1973.

So I got married on Friday. I have a lot of pictures to wait on from my photographers but couldn’t resist sharing this sneak peak of my beautiful bridesmaids.

Each of them are utterly gorgeous (but had swapped to flip flops immediately following the ceremony 😂).

My theme was bright and colourful but my bridesmaids were essentially my very own sailor scouts. From left to right, my Jupiter, Mars, Neptune, Venus, Saturn and Uranus with me in the middle with my custom made Sailor Moon inspired dress.
