Fantasy Meets Steampunk Wedding

Tania and Mir wanted to create their own fantasy world for their August wedding. “In our world, everyone should feel free and comfortable without any straight rules,” the bride told us, “and we strongly agreed on one thing – that was to avoid any stress in the lead up.”

For this pair, that meant pairing dreamy florals and rustic charm with their love of all things steampunk, and inviting their guests to join them! “Steampunk clothes were not a must for our guests, as we understand how hard it is to think of a costume, but we invited them to take part if they wished. To our amazement, the majority of our guests arrived in these amazing costumes. We were overwhelmed!”

Steampunk Wedding with a Custom Built Chapel & Lettuce for Decor!

It was wonderful to work with this couple,” said Jen from Pink Light images as she signed off her submission email, “but in real life, this pair are just SOMETHING ELSE!” Let’s just say, our interest was officially piqued, and we’re delighted to share with you one of the most unique weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of being submitted! 

Chris and Elizabeth are artists and proprietors of LizzyGator, an art house and events venue in Pilot Point, Texas. “We create just about everything around us, including our own whimsical world,” the bride began. “It was definitely not easy getting married last year, but it gave us the time to create the latest LizzyGator statement, our ‘twisted chapel’. We built it as a gift to each other, and with the hope of sharing it with the world once things are brighter.”

Intimate Steampunk Wedding in Lithuania

Their wedding was inspired by their own style, steampunk and a touch of Alice in Wonderland. Greta and Donatas were married at the registry office in Vilnius, Lithuania. “Our wedding theme was simply our own fantasy world with steampunk and Alice from wonderland accents. We were inspired by our casual lifestyle. We wore the kind of clothes that we’d wear every day!”

They kept things super small, with a registry office ceremony and nothing more. The bride made her own outfit and in total they spent just €2000. They rode their own bikes to the ceremony too. “The thing that made our wedding unique was its simplicity”, she said. “We didn’t prepare much so we didn’t stress at all. We didn’t spent much money and we just let it flow. All we knew in advance was the time when we need to turn up to sign our wedding papers! Everything else was impromptu. The best bit of the day was that moment when we heard ‘Now you are husband and wife’. I just felt that I flew up into the sky and I still feel like I’m flying now.”

A Rustic, Steampunk, Fairytale Wedding in Germany

As fantasy cosplayers in their spare time, there was no doubt in their minds that Joana and Maria’s wedding would be a fantastical fairytale! Drawing inspiration from all different areas – their participation in medieval festivals, their love of steampunk and all things rustic and fairytales; they didn’t want to be constrained by one particular genre so they just chose all the things they love.

They brought their vision to life by DIYing practically everything for their big day – from their stationery to their ceremony and reception decor, they even made their own outfits, painstakingly keeping them secret from one another and stealing moments to sew when the other one was out.

“It made it quite complicated and stressful at times, but sewing our own outfits was my favourite part of planning the wedding,” said Maria. “We really wanted to surprise each other and have the first moment we saw each other’s outfits at the ceremony.”

Vintage World’s Fair Wedding at The Houdini Estate with All the Colour, Steampunk Details… and Sloths!

Jade and Nick’s wedding was a riot of gorgeous colour and elements that really reflected them as a couple, at the ultra-cool Houdini Estate in Los Angeles – yup, that’s the old estate belonging to Harry Houdini himself! Jade is a big fan of bright colours, and Nick is a robotics engineer, so when planning the wedding, they thought they’d combine the more whimsical county fair vibe with the more ye olde worlde futuristic side, and came up with a vintage world’s fair look, which worked PERFECTLY.

Jade had already picked her stunning Jovani dress (which was actually an occasion dress, not explicitly a ‘wedding’ gown) before they’d picked the venue, so they let the dress guide the colour scheme. This meant they had bright colours and lots of floral elements, which looked incredible against the backdrops and the blazing Californian sunshine.

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.”
