Video Game Themed Winter Wedding in Russia
February 11, 2016
Pavel and Gulnara are both video game fanatics. This is how they met (playing World of Warcraft) so of course they had to bring it into their winter wedding.
“We both love video games and met online”, the bride explained. “He was administrating a WOW game forum and lived in Moscow. I lived 600 kilometres south-east from capital, in Kazan. He invited me to a party and I booked a plane ticket. Our nicknames in the forum were Ked and Dior so we had giant letters of these made for the wedding.”
“The wedding had winter theme with geekiness added!” she continued. “Our cake toppers were Eva and WALL-E, we had or PacMan muffins and 8bit invitations. Our wedding website was also in 8-bit style and we had a game developed about us killing space invaders!”
“One of my favourite things at the wedding was that we had two guys making alcohol during the wedding reception. They were dressed as chemists and everyone was excited to drink what they prepared. We had normal guestbook in grey velvet, and as we are both snowboarders also had guests sign an actual snowboard for us to remember the day”.
“Another thing that was amazing about our wedding is that I met my pen pal for the first time! In 1995 I started writing letters to Jenny from Kansas, and 17 years later she flew to Russia to attend our wedding. It was the first time that we’d met each other in person!”

Comic Book & Superhero Wedding: Holly & Anthony
November 26, 2012
Happy Monday you lovely little critters - have I got a wedding to start this week off with a bang or what!?
Unusually I was actually submitted this wedding by the groom and via twitter because his gorgeous bride, Holly, was nervous about doing so. Er, girl, are you KIDDING me?! I'm dying over your wedding. The comic book, superhero and geek chic radness is just too good. This is one of those weddings that I genuinely wish I'd been invited to!
Harry Potter Wedding at Hogwarts
April 27, 2016
OK, so Lewis and Cassie's wedding wasn't actually held at Hogwarts, but there ceremony venue, Manchester Town Hall, does have a striking resemblance!
"Two words describe our wedding entirely: Harry Potter!" said the bride. "We got engaged at the Diagon Alley section at Universal Studios Florida and have always loved the Harry Potter films and books. It made sense to us to have a Harry Potter themed wedding and to take pretty much all of the inspiration for our day from the films. We wanted it to look quirky and classy but not like an 8-year-old’s birthday party which can sometimes be a challenge when you have a theme, especially something like Harry Potter!"
The Minecraft Wedding: Matt & Asia
May 30, 2012
Confession: I can't take any of the credit for finding this wedding...this baby was aaaaall Gareth's doing! I'm quite the Minecraft widow actually, and when I drag myself from my computer to my bed at night I can often hear him watching the latest Yogscast video (at full volume of course!) Needless to say he's a bit of a fan... So when the creator of Minecraft, Markus Persson (known online as 'Notch'), tweeted about a wedding themed around the game, Gareth was straight away begging me to try and feature it. In fact I've never seen him run into my office so fast "Ooohmiiigaaaawd there's a Minecraft wedding! You HAVE to feature it! Pleeeease! Pleeeeeeeeease! How do you not know about this already!?? This is the coolest wedding ever ever ever!"
Star Wars, Video Games & A Geek Chic Themed Wedding: Jane & Neil
July 5, 2012
Facebook loves these guys. How do I know? Well because I sneak peeked a photo of them (with the focus on Jane's epic Terry Fox wedding dress) and people went crazy for it. Cue the most 'liked' wedding photograph on my facebook page ever. 430 (and counting) likes to be precisie. Mind. Blown.
So needless to say, I'm assuming there's a lot of Rock n Roll Bride's out there eagerly awaiting seeing the rest of this wedding... and just when you thought it couldn't get any better I have 3 words for you.
Star. Wars. Theme.
And yes.. they we're married on May 4th. Contained yourself? Then I'll begin...
A Homemade Star Wars & Lego Wedding for Geeks: Jennie & Jon
December 10, 2012
With just £5000 to spend, Jennie & Jon we're able to pull of their homemade and geeky wedding with a little bit of imagination and a lot of elbow grease! The ceremony took place at Emmanuel's Church in Sidlow and the reception was hosted at the bride's mother's house.
"We knew that when we decided to get married we would have to do it our own way and make it very individual", explained the bride. "We are both complete geeks and children at heart with a love for Star Wars and Lego, so how could it not be fun? We definitely didn't want a wedding that could have been anybody else's. All our friends live so far away and we only get together once or twice a year so we also wanted it to be very relaxed that we could just spend time with each other. We wanted to do as much as we could ourselves and scoured eBay and car boot sales for cheaper items."
Tree House and Picnic Party Wedding: Kirsty & James
November 11, 2013
They met online and with a mutual love of all things nerdy (their first date was eating cheese toasties and watching Dark Crystal) they connected instantly. They were married in August at Sole Street House in Kent. "Our theme evolved into a relaxed, geeky garden party", wrote Kirsty. "Vintage touches and having the full day to relax into the venue meant that it felt very natural and laid-back. We picked a colour theme of teal and asked all of our guests to wear something to match. As time went on, it became green and blue in all of the shades but it meant that we could relax about a 'theme' and still have everything come together."
Colourful Geeky Gamer Wedding: Sam & Stu
May 22, 2014
Sam and Stu met at college and bonded over a mutual love of video games, "primarily how to get the knights of the round summon in Final Fantasy 7!" Sam laughed. So needless to say, when it came to tying the knot, the very thing that brought them together was to be the theme of the wedding. " We’re game geeks to the core! We wanted sleek quirky bright design with our gaming interest being the centre of it. We play tabletop RPG’s, board games and regular old video games."
My Neighbour Totoro and Star Wars Wedding: Sarah & Adam
April 15, 2014
Sarah and Adam's wedding was a true reflection of them. They love anime and Star Wars, so that was their starting point! The day was held at Priston Mill, Bath, in December. They wanted their day to be quirky (like them!) but also fun for their guests. They had retro games set up on the balcony of the barn and devised various drinking games, matching their theme, for their guests!
