Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France

Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France (10)

Emilie and Vincent met when working in Hong Kong. They wanted their wedding to be fun, quirky and a mix of all the things they like. They didn’t choose a specific theme but focused on gold pineapples, skulls, star wars and street art and wanted their wedding to blend fun with tradition. The bride found her incredible dip-dyed dress in China when she was there on her hen do!

They were married in Emilie’s family home, which was built by her grandparents. “They are no longer with us and I thought it was a good way to honour them”, said the bride. “When I proposed this idea to my mother she was so enthusiastic. This house means so much to my family and is filled with so many good memories. It’s also in the South of France so was perfect for an outdoor wedding!”

Lily and Lance’s wedding was inspired by their one big love – Star Wars! “We had a lot of fun making huge Pinterest boards.” began the bride. “As soon as we decided on a Star Wars theme the fun really began!”

“Our ceremony was short and silly while remaining sweet and genuine. As it started, Lance was walking down the aisle to the music from the end of Star Wars episode IV and asked the crowd ‘What’s up everybody?!? Are we ready for a wedding!?’ and started high fiving the guests as he continued down the aisle, which was then followed by the groomsmen and bridal party being greeted with the same clapping, cheers, and high fives. Later we were told by guests that that moment set the tone for the rest of the day.”

Dracula, Harry Potter, The Princess Bride & Star Wars

Dinner at Dracula's_A Halloween Wedding (64)

Once they chose their Dracula and Halloween theme, the only date that Jessica and Andrew wanted to have the wedding was October 31st.

“The wedding theme was ‘Dinner at Dracula’s’,” explained the bride. “I wanted to have the spookiness of Halloween mixed with the classiness of dining at with the Count. Harry Potter was also definitely part of my inspiration. I wanted long tables with tons of candles, over the top food bars, and an almost magical, other worldly experience for our guests.”

The ceremony was held outside, and was officiated by one of the bridesmaids who preformed the monologue from The Princess Bride. “The ceremony was very unique”, she continued. “Since I was wearing a black dress I knew I wanted to go down the aisle to the Darth Vader march, in which I was introduced as ‘All rise for the Imperial Lord’. Also my bridesmaid was the officiant and started her speech with ‘Mawwiage is wat bwings us together towday’ from the Princess Bride.”

Disney, Pokemon and Star Wars Wedding in Israel

Ravid and Avishai were married in Tel Aviv, Israel. They wanted the day to represent them so that meant Star Wars, Disney, Pokemon, Cats and J-pop!

“It was important for us that the wedding represented ‘us’ and the things we like”, Ravid explained. “In the end we called it (behind closed doors) the ‘Ravid and Avishai ball!’ It was a mix of things we love; Star Wars, Pokemon, Scott Pilgrim, Japanese boy bands, Disney… I guess you could say it was a geeky-fairytale themed wedding.”

“I spent a lot of time looking for ideas online, but we had a strong idea of what we wanted the wedding to be like from the beginning. The design was inspired by fairytales, Disney movies and romance books; the reception was inspired by glam-pop parties we usually go to. We wanted the wedding to be based on our relationship and the things we grew to love together.”

Simple and Intimate Star Wars Wedding

Alejandra and Cameron originally wanted to have a very small courthouse wedding but instead decided to have a bigger celebration (but still with just 40 guests) for their families. They also planned the whole wedding in just two months!

“We didn’t have a wedding party or any of the usual wedding traditions”, said the bride. “One thing that I particularly think that made our wedding unique was how much the wedding reflected our own style. From our rings matching (tungsten carbide rings with carbon fibre), to my dress and Star Wars inspired the accessories! We wrote our ow vows and the judge even said they were the best ones he’d heard in 20 years. Everything was very true to our fun personalities and tried to not get caught up in all the craziness that weddings can be.”

The wedding was held at a restaurant, Little Village On The River. “Our budget was $5000”, she continued. “My dress was from Unique Vintage and while I did originally want a ‘real’ wedding dress, I knew that the time constraints just would not do. Unique Vintage was a great find. They have lots of vintage and pin-up style dresses. I also got a petticoat in royal blue to add some colour. All in all, I ended up spending less than $250 on my entire outfit. We made the cross stitch centrepieces. Some patterns included Star Wars, Carl and Ellie from ‘Up’, and science themed (as we are both scientists). I also made my belt with some Star Wars fabric and lace.”
