The glamour of the 1920s was met with good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll at Jessica Traynor and Mike Lambert’s Great Gatsby wedding.

The Stockport pair first met in 2008 when Jessica, 31, was in the crowd when Mike’s band was playing. They met up at another gig the next week and have since been inseparable, with music – and their shared love of Led Zepplin – an important part of their lives.

The couple had their son Jackson, before Mike, 28, got down on one knee at Manchester’s Christmas markets. “Twinkly lights galore!” he says.

The twinkly lights continued “under the stars” at their venue, Heaton House Farm, which has a magical starry ceremony space. The couple walked down a candlelit aisle to Led Zepplin’s The Rain Song on November 29, 2015 in front of 120 guests.

“Seeing each other at the end of the aisle, we both knew that this incredible moment was completely meant to be,” Jessica says.

“Our wedding was filled with love, laughter and lots of rock ‘n’ roll. From our bridal party and all our guests  to the venue dressing, we definitely pulled off  Great Gatsby glamour.”
