Star Wars, Video Games & A Geek Chic Themed Wedding: Jane & Neil

Facebook loves these guys. How do I know? Well because I sneak peeked a photo of them (with the focus on Jane’s epic Terry Fox wedding dress) and people went crazy for it. Cue the most ‘liked’ wedding photograph on my facebook page ever. 430 (and counting) likes to be precise. Mind = Blown.

The colour scheme of the wedding was purple and silver and the fact that the bridal suit was purple with a red Bakelite phone, similar to the original bat-phone, was just perfect. We also fell in love with the ballroom with its beautiful ceiling, parquet dance floor and purple curtains.”

The geek theme continued throughout the reception. From the Super Mario themed wedding cake to the 8-bit and video game themed stationery. “We introduced the geek theme right from the start with an 8-bit (pixel art) wedding cake design save the date, and an 8-bit bride and groom invite.
