Gamer Geek and Steampunk Wedding

videogame geeky wedding (11)

Megan and Brendan had a steampunk inspired wedding with touches of gamer geek. It perfectly reflected them both!

“Okay, so both of us are humongous geeks”, Megan began. “I’m a  consummate bookworm and I was practically raised on early Sci-Fi and fantasy by my father. Both of us grew up playing video games and tabletop games like D&D, Star Wars, and Savage Worlds. My degree is in writing and literature and Brendan is currently studying to be a game designer. So we decided to make the theme for the wedding everything that we think is cool about gaming and geek culture. It was a bit of a floating theme, and incorporated a lot of different things, but it meant that we had a lot of  fun things to chose from.”

“A lot of our friends are nerds and geeks too so when we gave them permission to come to the wedding dressed up in theme… a lot of them did! It was great! My boss came dressed up as one of the Dr. Who’s companions and gave us a sonic screwdriver. Some of Brendan’s friends came dressed as Star Trek ensigns. My aunt and cousins dressed up as video game characters, and basically everyone else added a touch of steampunk to their outfits. It was amazing!”

Milk Bath Bridal Boudoir

I’ve got something a bit unusual to share with you today – milk bath boudoir shots! Photographer Melissa Mullins explains, “I was inspired to create a unique twist on bridal boudoir. Something different for an independent girl who wants to showcase her rebellious side, without being totally out-there. I wanted to create something soft and romantic but also a little edgy!”

“I chose vintage lingerie straight from the 1950s and loved the delicate lace and flattering shape. To keep things simple and elegant, I used a white milk bath and brought in some natural elements – fall leaves and flowers in shades of pink – to add in bright pops of colour.”

Video Game Themed Winter Wedding in Russia

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!”

Geeky Chinese & Japanese Influenced Wedding

Nicole and Jonathan wanted their wedding to represent them. They didn’t care if things didn’t necessary go together, they just wanted the day to feel like them. They included their favourite colours, their love of Lego, Jonathan’s Chinese heritage and their mutual appreciation for all things Japanese!

The wedding was held at Lower Grange Farm, an 18th Century barn owned by the Scouts that is hired out for weddings. “We wanted things to be personal to us”, began the bride. “Jonathan wanted red to be part of the colour scheme so we went for bright red, orange and yellow. The bright shades really suited the date of the wedding – mid-July – as the colours were summery.”

“The colour scheme also worked with our desire to include some Chinese touches to reflect Jonathan’s heritage, we also got engaged in Hong Kong so it was very appropriate! We incorporated Chinese lanterns, a wish tree decorated with Chinese wedding envelopes, and our invitations were genuine Chinese wedding invites that a friend of ours had bought back from a visit there!”

Ravid and Avishai were married in Tel Aviv, Israel. They wanted the day to represent them so that meant Star Wars, Disney, Pokemon, Cats and J-pop!

“It was important for us that the wedding represented ‘us’ and the things we like”, Ravid explained. “In the end we called it (behind closed doors) the ‘Ravid and Avishai ball!’ It was a mix of things we love; Star Wars, Pokemon, Scott Pilgrim, Japanese boy bands, Disney… I guess you could say it was a geeky-fairytale themed wedding.”

“I spent a lot of time looking for ideas online, but we had a strong idea of what we wanted the wedding to be like from the beginning. The design was inspired by fairytales, Disney movies and romance books; the reception was inspired by glam-pop parties we usually go to. We wanted the wedding to be based on our relationship and the things we grew to love together.”

Green & Black Latvian Forest Wedding with a Hint of Tolkien

Green & Black Latvian Forest Wedding with a Hint of Tolkien (24)

Anete and Anrijs were married in Latvia at the ruins of Zvardes Church. The styling of their wedding started with their favourite colours – black and green.

“After we picked our colours I found the amazing church ruins and instantly fell in love”, said Anete. “I knew right away that it was our place! I showed it to Anrijs and he agreed that there was no other option for the ceremony.”

“I was inspired by other forest weddings and somehow Tolkien got involved too! Maybe because when other people saw those ruins, they instantly started to talk about elves, forest fairies, literature and stuff like that. In the end it all come together really well. We can’t imagine our day in any other way.”

“The ceremony was was beautiful and personal. I also really wanted that ‘movie moment’ when you see each other just when ceremony starts. I think that there is something a little magical about it. I was walked down the aisle by my godfather and when he took my hand and Can’t Help Falling in Love started playing it was everything I dreamed it would be. I started to cry and just couldn’t stop!”
