Being huge Doctor Who fans, Lua and Pedro knew as soon as they were engaged what their wedding theme would be. The celebration was held at
Solar das Palmeiras in Rio de Janeiro.”
“As we are both geeks and great fans of TV shows, we thought our wedding couldn’t be a regular wedding”, began the bride. “We had to choose something that would look like us. We chose the British TV show Doctor Who for our inspiration. With the help of Pinterest, we collected ideas of how to make our special night even more special. I tried to spend as much time as I could making props and decoration items we could use, and the result was awesome. People at the wedding couldn’t really tell it was a themed wedding, but everybody agreed it looked just like us. They said they felt as if they were celebrating at our own house.
“One of our favourite (and funniest!) parts was our dog as the ring bearer!”, she continued. “He dressed up in a tuxedo and my nephew held his dog leash. Both of them were responsible for bringing our wedding rings to the altar.”
“The décor was very much DIY. I made many, many things! I made the stars used to decorate the gardens where the ceremony took place, painted the doors used in the ceremony, made all the photo frames, cut the props for the photo booth. I could have bought these things but it was much cheaper to make them myself (and I really enjoyed doing it!)”

A Rainy Brazilian Wedding with DIY Details: Cecilia & Luciano
August 16, 2012
Cecilia & Luciano wanted a simple wedding inspired by their choice of venue, Pousada Estrela D'água, in Trancoso, Brazil. "My inspiration was the wedding venue", explained the bride. "The village of Trancoso, Bahia, is beautiful and simple at the same time. That's what I sought in all my wedding decisions. I did not want anything too pretentious. For the decorations we used photos of family and tablecloths that belonged to our great grandmothers. The decor had a bit of our history and showed a lot of our personality."
Cecilia made her own dress from the lace of the veil that her mother-in-law wore when she married. She also designed and made the bridesmaid's dresses. "There was no specific theme to anything really", she continued. "We just tried to do everything as simple as possible."
A Quirky Brazilian Wedding Planned in Just Two Months: Juliana & Tomas
May 24, 2012
Organised in just two months, Juliana & Tomas' wedding was held in Brazil on the very date that they first met. The bride explains, "Tomas & I met two years ago through a mutual friend. At that time, Tomas lived in New York and I lived in Sao Paulo. In December 2009, Tomas went to Brazil to work and our friend invited him to spend New Year's Eve in a house I'd rented at the beach. We spent 6 days together and, two months later, we met again, but this time in New York. We started a long-distance relationship, which lasted just 4 months, because I decided to come to New York. My plan was to spend a season in New York, study and invest in our relationship. Back then, we were very uncertain about our relationship's future, but now we have no doubt we made the best decision."
