This is a wedding I have been looking forward to featuring for over a YEAR! I first heard about Vishaka & Dean’s plans for a circus themed wedding from their friend Rhiannon Burton of Under the Cherry Moon who was designing them some custom invitations and props for the wedding. I knew from chatting to Rhiannon all that time ago that I would love the wedding and I certainly wasn’t wrong!
Vishaka & Dean got married last summer (The wedding has been featured in this month’s Brides magazine, hence the epic wait until I was allowed to feature them!) in Corsley, Wiltshire. The theme for the day was a circus-inspired day of fun. There was dressing up and a trampoline; there were hay bales and a secret treehouse with munchies hidden in it; there was a strong man and a lion, a lucky dip and a big top and come the evening time there were smores, sparklers and a bonfire. The tables were named after different circus acts and the place names were badges that the guests could wear later.
Vishaka & Dean even made the strong man and lion backdrop and 15 guests entered cakes to their baking competition, which provided desert.
Aaaaah-mazing. I certainly think it was worth the wait don’t you? Be sure to check out the full vendor list after the ‘jump’ and all the images – the attention to detail is utterly incredible.
Dina & Gary’s 1920’s vaudeville carnival themed wedding makes me wanna squeal. I wish wish wish we’d done something as fabulous as this when we got hitched. The wedding took place at Asbury Park, New Jersey and the pair really went to town with their theme – from popcorn and candy for the guests, a sideshow performance, goldfish in bowls… in fact everything you might expect to find at a carnival! Dina wore a custom dress (made by a friend) and wore jewellery and carried a candy bouquet made by another friend Melissa Heid.
This amazing art nouveau meets Victorian goth, meets the sideshow circus and steampunk styled wedding was overflowing with florals to die for! They were supplied by Karen & Kristen of Plan Decor.
Ryan & Cha Cha’s engagement session blows everything else out of the water. An eclectic, colourful, hilarious, circus, wonderland styled shoot looks like absolute crazy fun.
A sugarcane plantation in Northern Cebu was the perfect backdrop for our quirky theme of vagabond lovers. Hats, clown figurines, a colored umbrella, truck load of clothes, bicycles, and a purple teddy bear. Pure craziness in the middle of nowhere!
Alison & Steve had their wedding at Baldwin School just outside of Philadelphia, a really old but truly stunning location. Not only did they have a folk band to welcome guests to the reception, but to round off the evening they had a local circus group as entertainment!
