Steampunk Wedding in Austria with Homemade Details

Sarah and Benjamin’s Austrian wedding was inspired by the 19th century science fiction theme of steampunk! The day was held at Schloß Weinberg (Weinberg Castle) in Kefermarkt. The ceremony took place outside, in the castle’s grounds.

The bride wore a dress and cape from by Sincerity. Her whole outfit was based around her accessories (headpiece, necklace, bracelet) which she made herself. She also decorated her shoes using cogs and steampunk embellishments. “Originally I really wanted to wear black as I am part of the gothic scene”, said Sarah, “but my mother was fiercely against this idea. As an alternative we came up with steampunk as a theme. ‘Steampunk is goths wearing brown’ is a popular saying.”

“In the german-speaking area of where we live, steampunk is not very well known. So our whole theme made it stand out. For us it was all the details. We paid so much attention to them that made it extra special. We think our wedding looked really authentic, and just like we are.”

As well as her outfit, the bride designed the stationery and they came up with all ideas for the decor themselves. “Except the cake and flowers, most of the details were home made. I also made 200 paper roses to go around all the decorations. These took the longest to make. They were all made of old books and it took about two months.”

“I wanted to show that we have a lot of great places in Austria where you can shoot your wedding photos”, she told me. “I also wanted to have an alternative looking couple. She wore boots and an amazing dress from Katya Katya Shehurina and he was in jeans and a pink jacket. The backdrop seemed to suit them perfectly, it was extraordinary and wild!”
