Nikita and Ksu had an amazingly creative kawaii and 1950s inspired wedding in Russia. The bride’s dress and shoes were from Baby, The Stars Shine Bright and her headpiece was homemade.

They wanted their day to be quirky (like them!) but also fun for their guests. They had retro games set up on the balcony of the barn and devised various drinking games, matching their theme, for their guests.
“We could label our wedding theme, but really it was just ‘us'”, began Sarah. “We are big kids deep down! Everything on the day was what we enjoy and what is important to us. One of our fave films is ‘My Neighbour Totoro’ and Adam is a Star Wars freak. We knew Star Wars needed to be combined with the anime theme and the ideas went on from there – often fuelled by good friends. gin and Prosecco.
