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’.”

Folklore & Fantasy Pagan Woodland Wedding

Jay and Wisia had a Pagan ceremony in the woods. They wanted their wedding theme to be folklore and fantasy inspired without being too cheesy.

“There’s a fine line between themed and fancy dress”, laughed the bride. “Our special day was a cross between Viking and Elvish visual themes with elements of Pagan.”

“We were inspired by our love for one another and the love that surrounds us from all the incredible people we know. Other than that, it was influenced by our favourite films, TV episodes and books such as LOTR, The Hobbit and Vikings. We were also deeply inspired by our favourite place to be together… the woods!”

“There are several things that we did that were particularly unique whilst staying very ‘us'”, she continued. “First of all we picked our own surname. We became Mr & Mrs Ælf‎ær (an old English name meaning ‘whole’ that we had chosen together).”

Isabela and Felipe’s Brazilian wedding had a casual and boho vibe. They were married at a concert venue in Sao Paulo. The day was simply a mash up of things they both liked.

“We didn’t want anything uniform or traditional”, said the bride. “Our venue, Centro Cultural Rio Verde in Sao Paulo was not a usual wedding location so that was different too. It’s a place where lots of independent concerts happen. About three years ago, when we’re just starting to see each other, we went to a concert there and commented that it’d be pretty cool to get married there. That comment was never forgotten!”

Rock Music Themed Wedding

Heather and Bill’s New Jersey wedding could not have been a more perfect example of a Rock n Roll wedding if it tried! The blue haired bride and her punk rocker groom’s big day was inspired by their love of music.

“Bill and I connected over our love of music”, said Heather. “When we first started talking, we used to swap CDs with each other. Right before we started dating, he bought me Nine Inch Nails tickets for my birthday (pretty much the moment he had my heart). We see a concert about once a month, our living room is decorated with band posters, I play guitar and ukulele, he plays guitar and keys, and it’s a constant debate over who has better music on their iPod (it’s me!) Since it’s such a major part of our lives, it made sense to make it our wedding theme.”

“The theme for the shoot was ’Head in the clouds’ a name inspired by our model’s stunning turquoise hair and our fluffy cloud installation”, they explained. “The aim of this shoot was to mix the elegance and style of a 1950s wedding with a big and bold jewelled tone colour scheme. We didn’t want to recreate a wedding from the 1950s, but wanted a fresh take on a traditional vintage theme.”

Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk Wedding Ideas

The theme of this shoot was Neo-Victorian meets Steampunk with a little bit of high fashion thrown in for good measure.

“I think Rock n Roll gets boxed in too easily”, explained photographer Phi Porto. “I am a former vocalist of a band, tattooed from head to toe and I used to only wear all black t-shirts and shorts. I am now married, run a business and I love men’s fashion, particularly wooden bow ties. I don’t believe I am any less punk rock or Rock n Roll. I still have the same passion and wanted to exemplify that through this shoot.”

“I wanted to inspire Rock n Roll brides to be themselves and not be boxed in by any title. The models for this shoot have completely different lives but from the blue hair of the bride to the sailor jerry style tattoos on the groom, they are still Rock n Roll!”
