Dr Who Themed Wedding with Glitter, Magic & Tonnes of Fun!

When the groom is a magician and the bride a comedian, you know their wedding day is bound to be packed with entertainment! In fact there wasn’t a dull moment in Robyn and Martin’s October wedding day, with musicians, magicians, singing waiters, a flashmob and a first dance to Baby Shark! “We just wanted a day full of fun,” the bride told us,

“I’ve been to so many weddings and had hours of making polite conversation and twiddling my thumbs that I was adamant ours would be the opposite. If a family like ours can’t put on a show then who can!”

Their day was held at Tilehouse Street Baptist Church in Hitchin before moving on to the Hilton Garden Inn in Luton for the reception. The bride and her mum did tonnes of DIY, spending months in the lead making props and doing almost everything themselves with the help of family, bridesmaids, children and anyone else they could lay their hands on! From custom wine-glass charms as place names to handmade favour boxes, birdcage centre-pieces to a life-size tardis for the couple to secretly make their entrance from for the reception! “I probably took on too much,” the bride admitted, “and should have delegated a lot more but I was so secretive about all the little details that it paid off to do it all myself!”

Pink meets Rustic, Child-Friendly Barn Wedding

As parents themselves, Arron and Casey based their wedding around how they felt when they took their kids to other peoples weddings. “I wanted everyone to feel comfortable,” the bride explained. “It didn’t matter to us if children were running around crazy, in fact we put everything into making it the sort of atmosphere that our friends and family would want to bring their children along to.”

A series of unfortunate events with their original reception venue meant that, with just three weeks before the big day, the couple’s bridal party rallied around to find them a place to party – a disused cow-shed on a very much working farm wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but Arron and Casey didn’t let that perturb them!

“It was hard work organising everything but we wouldn’t change a thing,” explained Casey. “I threw my all into DIY-ing decorations – the table plan, centrepieces, I filled the whole barn and marquee with stuff I’d made – and people still talk about our wedding a year later.”

Poirot-Themed Wedding at a Vintage Motorsport Museum with Tiny Tony the Miniature Pony!

When a bride describes the inspiration for the wedding as “a fun episode of Poirot with lots of tiny animals”, you KNOW it’s going to be an alternative wedding, and an amazing day! Frankie and Chris (or Jaffa as most people call him) got married on 5th October 2018 at The Brooklands Museum in Surrey. It was the home of an old Motorsports racetrack but is now a museum for vintage vehicles – cars, planes and buses.

As soon as we saw their beautiful pictures by Nikki van der Molen we squealed with delight – the miniature pony is called Tiny Tony!! I doesn’t get any cuter than that! They arranged to have a him there for an hour or so in the afternoon for the guests to meet him. He was very sociable and made for the most adorable photo ops! Animal Magic also brought along a few dogs and a the most laid back friendly cat ever.
