Psychedelic Alice in Wonderland Wedding

Psychedelic Alice in Wonderland Wedding (29)

Adva and Guy wedding was Alice in Wonderland themed, with a pinch of psychedelic 60s vibes. They were married in Israel in September.

“I have been obsessed with the Alice in Wonderland book since early childhood”, said Adva, “and when I met Guy he came along for the ride and developed the obsession even further. Together we started to collect translated editions of the book (thirty languages and counting!), flew spontaneously to ‘Alice Day’ in Oxford, and we celebrate our unbirthdays! We love the surrealistic-psychedelic feel of Alice and it matched perfectly with Guy’s passion for late 60s rock music. Our wedding motto was ‘Life, what is it but a dream?’ taken from Lewis Carroll poem A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky.

“We went all the way with our theme – from the design of the invitations, to the decorations, music, even the food. We tried to give our guests the feeling they fell through the rabbit hole and into a dream. For example, we had four long tables, and each table had jumbo sized playing cards from a different suit on it. Instead of being given a table number each guest got a playing card that assigned them to their seat.”

Whimsical Wonderland Wedding with Afternoon Tea

Whimsical Wonderland Wedding with Afternoon Tea (62)

The inspiration for their wedding was a passion for all things vintage and retro, a love of fantasy and their amazing venue, Preston Court in Kent, which came complete with a vintage carousel! They had a traditional church ceremony followed by an afternoon tea reception.

“We became Mr & Mrs Parnham on Thursday 28th July 2016”, said the bride. “We said our vows in a beautiful quaint church and spent a splendid afternoon and evening exploring old steam trains, having numerous rides on a carousel and dancing away the night to our vintage vinyl DJ.”

Alice in Wonderland Museum Wedding Inspired by Salvador Dali

Alice in Wonderland Museum Wedding Inspired by Salvador Dali (76)

Paige and Rick described their wedding theme as ‘a wedding in Wonderland’ and they were inspired by a version of Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland illustrated by Salvador Dali. They used the book’s illustrations as inspiration for their different centrepieces, various decor and overall funky feel. They wanted the visuals to inspire curiosity much like Dali himself and his artwork, and hoped their wedding would transport their guests down the rabbit hole to Wonderland…

“As our guests entered the museum for our ceremony they were greeted with pink flower flamingos and the sign ‘Holy Shitballs Today is Going to be Awesome!’” began Paige. “Our ceremony took place on a helix shaped staircase in the middle of the Salvador Dali Museum with our family and friends on the floor above us looking down so everyone had a great view. We were married by the Mad Hatter with a light hearted, short and sweet ceremony. It was filled with messages of love but one of our most favourite parts was the ‘We Do’s’.”

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party & Pirate Wedding

Alice in Wonderland & Pirate Wedding (49)

Mandy and Dean met online and, after dating long distance, Dean proposed to Mandy at the top of Beeston Castle, where they’d had their first date. Their wedding theme was steampunk meets Alice in Wonderland with a bit of Mad Hatter and pirates thrown in. They were also inspired by the quote ‘We’re all mad here’ from Alice In Wonderland, which is also Mandy’s family motto!

The ceremony was a traditional Baptist ceremony officiated by one of Mandy’s childhood friends, and was one of her favourite parts of the day. “Marrying my best friend and soul mate was definitely my favourite part”, said Mandy, “as well as having everyone we love and cherish celebrate with us. It meant the world to both of us. The whole day was just perfect, full of smiles, love and laughter, oh and pirates!”

“For our reception we decided to have a Mad Hatter’s tea party. The décor truly was an amazing family DIY project: everything was handmade. It was hard work but it really helped keep our costs down and produced incredible results. My mum made most of the decorations herself from scratch and came up with all the ideas, she’s so creative and talented it’s untrue! She made bunting out of playing cards and ribbon, our top hat post box and created the floral table decorations using large glasses we picked up in a bargain shop. We collected all the vintage tea cups with the help of family and friends scouring second hand shops and markets, then put them together with artificial flowers and added fans made from playing cards and pheasant feathers to match the buttonholes and my bouquet.”

Just loved yesterday's Steampunk bride and groom,  Jo-Anne and I

Jo-anne and Ian were married in May. Their wedding theme was Steampunk with a splash of Alice in Wonderland, “We met at a Steampunk themed war game tournament” explained Jo-anne, “and I love all things Steampunk so it seemed very fitting.”

Ian had planned lots of things for Jo-anne while she got ready on the morning of the wedding such as love letters to open. “She got letters that I had written delivered to her by the venue staff and friends ” Ian explained, “I also built a website and kept adding things throughout the morning for her to look at, read and listen to. I think she spent the morning mostly in tears!”

All the guests also got involved and dressed up in-keeping with the theme, “The place was packed full of steampunk attired friends and family, it looked magical” Jo-ann continued. “We also lined the aisle with candles and lanterns and after we signed the register the guests threw paper planes they had made rather than confetti as we walked back down the aisle, it was just brilliant!”

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Meets a Mid-Summer Night’s Dream

Mad Hatter's Tea Party Meets a  Mid-Summer Night's Dream (37)

Erynne and Sean were married in their own back garden. The wedding was inspired by the Mad Hatter’s tea party meets a Mid-Summer Night’s Dream with a bit of a Victorian, garden party feel thrown in for good measure!

“We both wanted something fun and different”, said the bride. “It started out as a straight up Steampunk tea party, but it slowly evolved into the softer, fluffier version that I absolutely love. EVERYTHING was DIY, right down to the venue. The fire pit where the ceremony took place was unfinished when we got engaged, so that summer was all landscaping and planting. Having the wedding at our house also meant we had to make time to painting everything and clear out all our junk! I went a little crazy at garage sales and antique stores for décor and place settings, in the end we had so much stuff we didn’t even use it all!”
