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.”

The wedding was held at Medusa Resort in Tver City. “We wanted to make our wedding our own so we made a big photo frame like Polaroid film, many colourful garlands, the name plates, the dolls, and the decorations for table. We also had vinyl hanging everywhere.”

“We organised our own instant camera ‘photo booth’ station where guests could take photos and put them into a wish-book. The cake was also amazing. The first layer was made to look like a piano and the second one was covered in golden sheet music.”
