May The 4th Be with You: Star Wars, Terry Pratchett, A Blue Wedding Dress & A Pregnant Bride

Meet Tesni and Andrew: Married on May 4th, they had small touches of Star Wars throughout the day, but also included their other favourite movies and novels (lots of Terry Pratchett!) in the table names and decorations. The pregnant bride chose to wear blue as a nod to their son who was due two months after the wedding… And, even better, she found it for £500 in a closing down sale!

The day had an elegant, vintage and timeless feel, but also feel personalised and very ‘them’. “Our wedding theme was to just tell our story – eclectic, personal and slightly geeky!” said the bride.

The ceremony was originally planned for outside, but to make things easier for the seven-month pregnant Tesni, they moved it indoors to the great hall at Plas Dinam Country House at the last minute. “Its stunning moulded ceiling and deep coral walls went perfectly with our colour scheme”, she explained, “and everyone staying in the house had eaten a pre-wedding dinner made by my mum in there the night before so it just felt completely relaxed.”

Boho Chic Meets Star Wars Inspired Wedding

Josh and Katie met in secondary school. After being in the same tutor group and not exchanging a single word, it took until they ended up in a mutual friendship group in college several years later for them to finally hit it off! They’d been together for nine years and engaged for eight of those before planning their wedding day. As self-confessed Star Wars geeks, with matching Star Wars tattoos already, they knew they wanted a day that captured their nerdiness without being tacky, and also complimented their wedding venue as that was the first thing they picked.

Their ceremony took place in a beautiful rustic barn which was simply decorated with vintage, mismatched jugs full of a mix of fresh, wild flowers and artificial ones, and decorated hula-hoops. They had a simple ceremony, with the registrar reading a small Celtic poem to wish them good luck before they exchanged vows. The best-man performed favourite songs by Zac Brown Band before Josh and Katie exited the barn to a confetti shower as the new Mr and Mrs Smith.

A Cosplay Star Wars Revenge of the Sith Engagement Shoot

Molly and Christopher’s engagement shoot is just about PERFECT for today’s post, what with it being International Star Wars day and all.

The couple made the costumes themselves! “We are both huge geeks who go to a lot of conventions”, she said,” so it was easy for us to find pieces we already owned to channel some Sith realness.”

“Chris and I were both HUGE Star Wars fans before we met one another and our love was forged in the fires of our space opera fandom! We met right before the Force Awakens came out (and haven’t seen a Star Wars film in theatres without each other since), the first gift he ever got me was a robotic BB-8, we run an inter-sectional Star Wars Club together (it’s called the Star Wars Dumpster Fire). He also proposed to me with a fan made Star Wars video – perhaps the only proposal video in history where my husband-to-be makes out with my fictional husband (Kylo Ren). So CLEARLY Star Wars is a HUGE through line in our relationship. We wanted to honour that by making our own real life fanfic with our engagement photos!”

Colourful Roald Dahl Themed Wedding with Bonus Bees!

Elly and Chris have always been inspired by the works of Roald Dahl, and as they hadn’t seen the theme being used before, thought it could be one they could let their creativity loose with – even if they did have to be careful with which table they named The Twits!

As well as naming their tables after his books, they also had Roald Dahl influences in their decorations, their incredible four-tiered homemade wedding cakes and stationery. They had little plushie Roald Dahl characters dotted around the venue, and some favourite quotes from the author as decor.

Winter Wedding with Copper Accents and Star Wars

Kerry and Dan didn’t have a pre-determined theme, they just wanted to include little bits of everything they love. Little nods to lots of different elements came together to produce a wedding that felt totally ‘them’. From the Star Wars posters as table markers, to the homemade cake, DIY flowers and all the decor that they did entirely themselves. They were massively inspired by the weddings featured on Rock n Roll Bride and of course, good old Pinterest.

“The colours were initially going to be white and copper/rose gold”, began the bride, “however the bridesmaid dresses everyone fell in love with were navy and we had Star Wars posters that were in completely different bold colours so we scrapped the strict colour scheme in the end! We’ve been together so long we just wanted it to be fun and relaxed for everyone including us.”

Star Wars Themed Wedding in New Orleans

Stephanie and Ryan’s description of their wedding is arguably my favourite of all time, and it reads like this: “A mash-up of video games, 80s soft rock, and Star Wars. Classy on the surface with layers of ridiculous undertones.” Absolute brilliance.

As was having their officiants dress as Hall and Oates and stay in character all day, they also incorporated a local tradition into their day known as a ‘second line’. This is where a New Orleans brass band parades is the group of people who follow behind the ‘main line’ of official players and just dance and enjoy the music. Which in this case was the theme to Star Wars and everyone had a lightsaber and a decorated umbrella. I repeat – brilliance.

What was the inspiration behind this awesome hybrid? Stephanie said, “Honestly, just Ryan and me and our mutual weirdness. We really love being strange and making people laugh, so we just took all the traditional things and then did it our own way.” Stephanie planned the entire thing herself, “with a dash of the husbandʼs input, of course! I had a day-of coordinator, Joy from Bridal 911, who helped keep everything on time and organised.”
