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.”

Victorian Gothic, Steampunk, Game of Thrones & Medieval

Valeria (the bride) and Nicola’s (the groom) Victorian gothic wedding was held at the impressive Villa il Poggione in Fauglia, Italy. The venue was decked out in medieval regalia which suited their theme perfectly.

“I would call our theme Victorian Gothic with a pinch of Steampunk, Game of Thrones and a medieval atmosphere”, began Valeria. “After we bought our clothing, we decided to turn the wedding into a themed one! We thought that it could be original and funny for everybody. We chose the Victorian Gothic simply because it was the style of our clothing and we love the style of this period. Fortunately, we have fantastic relatives and friends, so almost all the guests accepted the challenge. It’s very cool to see our wedding pictures with people in themed clothing. We didn’t expect this great participation, so we were pleasantly surprised!”

Their ceremony was held at the end of a dramatic red carpet, in the courtyard of the villa. “We were legally married the day before with just a couple of witnesses”, she explained. “So we decided to make our villa ceremony into OUR ceremony. We chose the red carpet instead of the classic white one in order to give a gothic touch. We wanted a simple, brief, romantic and original ceremony, so we decided to use some quotes from Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings between the classic script. The wedding march was played by Brian May and Queen because I had always dreamed of walking down the aisle with a song played by a rock guitar. Even the end of the ceremony exit was accompanied by a revisiting of the classic wedding theme in a power metal style.”

All the guests also got involved and dressed up in-keeping with the theme, “The place was packed full of steampunk attired friends and family, it looked magical” Jo-ann continued. “We also lined the aisle with candles and lanterns and after we signed the register the guests threw paper planes they had made rather than confetti as we walked back down the aisle, it was just brilliant!”
