With a bride named Alice who’s a lover of Disney and Tim Burton, having an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding seemed like the perfect fit! She married Sven in Berlin on April 18th.
“Our wedding was crazy, funny, colourful and fancy”, she told me. “It was basically what our brains look like! We did a lot of DIY but also had help from our amazing wedding planner, Svenja.”
“Unfortunately, there is no shop in Germany where you can simply walk in and buy all the stuff for such a wedding so she had a great team that helped her realise her ideas. From the decoration on the tables to the paper mache figures in the garden, everything was made just our wedding day.”
“We wanted to create our wonderland so the decoration was very important and took most of the budget”, she continued. “However having a wedding planner actually saved us a lot of money because she had all the vendor connections and knew where to get things.”
“The only thing I wish we’d done differently was put on more entertainment for our guests. Everyone loved the croquet though! However we are so glad we realised our dreams with our wedding, even when our families tried to interfere!”

Seriously people! get a load of this sheeeeeit. OK OK let me get myself together for a second....
Margaret sent me a sneak peek to her incredible wedding to Edi back in October and I had to wait until this week to see the rest of them. Do you know how hard that has been for me?! I actually teased the above photo on Twitter the other day and someone replied asking if it was a photograph of heaven...that's a pretty accurate assumption I think!
The couple were legally married at Edi's parent's house and the reception took place in the fairytale setting of The Bali Room in the Kempinski Hotel, Jakarta and Margaret told me all about it.
"Our theme was Alice in Wonderland. I picked Alice for my theme, because I've loved it since I was a little kid and because my Mom's name is Alice. The main colour was dark purple because purple represents magical and darkness in the same time. its so glamorous! Our family members wore purple shade outfits."

A Whimsical Alice in Wonderland Wedding: Kristi & Ben
July 30, 2012
Our Labor of Love, Sharkpig, The Flashdance, Smilebooth.... oh boy did Kristi & Ben have the dream team behind their San Francisco wedding! With an Alice in Wonderland theme and a ceremony at the Golden Gate Park, they really did go all out to make their wedding day extra special. The reception was held at RF-80, a studio space in the city.
"Our inspiration was the eclectic city we live in combined with a love for all things imaginative", began the bride. "We wanted a wedding that wasn’t cookie cutter and that reflected both of our personalities. There were a lot of DIY elements involved. I scoured wedding blogs for my ideas. I also got inspiration from magazines and store windows. I would recommend figuring out what is doable within your timeframe or it can all get overwhelming. Enlist your friends, buy or make some cake, pop open some champagne and get crafting. It saves you money and gives such a personal touch to your wedding. I'd also advise other no not listen to the masses, they will scowl at your ideas, mostly because they’ve either never seen anything like it before or can’t get the proper visual. It’s your day, do what you want."

Alice in Wonderland Wedding: Adam & Louise
October 19, 2012
Alice in Wonderland themed weddings have been pretty popular since the Tim Burton version of the story was released in 2010, but that doesn't mean I don't still love to see them! I mean who wouldn't want to look at photographs that transport you into a much more psychedelic world? When Adam & Louise got engaged, and despite the fact that they thought the theme had 'been done' quite a bit, they knew it was perfect for their wedding. Louise had been a huge fan of the story for her whole life, and had always dreamt of an Alice themed wedding... so why go changing?

Easy Going and Super Cool Wedding in Berlin
January 12, 2015
Berlin is probably one of the coolest places I've ever been. There's this crazy juxtaposition of the old, overgrown and almost derelict looking architecture, with a really unique arty and creative vibe. Nearly everything is covered in graffiti or art of some kind. Jamie and Angi's wedding couldn't be more Berlin if it tried. I adore everything about it!
