Adam and Amanda love steampunk and so the theme for their wedding was an obvious choice. They wanted to get their guests into the spirit of their wedding so they asked them to dress in costumes too… and they all did! Amanda’s dress was from Viola Lahger which she wore with a little hat by Linekka and Adam’s outfit was pieced together from items found at flea markets.

The couple did a lot of things themselves for their wedding including the signage, the paper goods and most of the décor in the reception room.

“Make use of playful inspiration and let your dreams and interests shine through on your wedding”, Amanda advises. “Many people may have opinions about how you should have your wedding but do not let it depress your wishes. This will always be your day and allow it to cost a bit it is worth it! For us it has not just been about a single day, but also the planning.”

“It can feel like waiting for Christmas with all the preparations and crafts. All the anticipation and commitment was almost as much fun as the actual wedding day. Oh and leave your cell phone with a friend – NOTHING interesting will happen on Facebook! We had an unplugged wedding and it was amazing!”
