Pavel and Gulnara are both video game fanatics. This is how they met (playing World of Warcraft) so of course they had to bring it into their winter wedding.

“We both love video games and met online”, the bride explained. “He was administrating a WOW game forum and lived in Moscow. I lived 600 kilometres south-east from capital, in Kazan. He invited me to a party and I booked a plane ticket. Our nicknames in the forum were Ked and Dior so we had giant letters of these made for the wedding.”

“The wedding had winter theme with geekiness added!” she continued. “Our cake toppers were Eva and WALL-E, we had or PacMan muffins and 8bit invitations. Our wedding website was also in 8-bit style and we had a game developed about us killing space invaders!”

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.

“We met five years ago while we were hanging out in anime and cosplay convention and after six months we decided to date”, said the bride. “We like 50s culture and all things anime so we wanted to fuse the two for our wedding. We often listen to vinyl and our favourite artists are Elvis and Frank Sinatra.”

Alexandr and Ekaterina’s wedding took place in their hometown of Penza in Russia. They wanted their day to be just like a fairytale.

“We wanted a no-frills wedding”, wrote the bride. “Something light and summery. We wanted our guests to feel like they were about to go on holiday! Our theme was a mix of old school tattoos, wings, roses, birds and feathers. We were also influenced by summer, nature, freedom… what could be better?”

The ceremony was held in the woods. They set up the chairs, and the red rose and feather ceremony backdrop and then carpeted the aisle with pure white feathers. AMAZING!
