My wedding!

Post by illumina » Sun Dec 05, 2010 9:25 pm

It was in June but I've been very lazy about sorting out my pictures. It was an absolutely fabulous day with all our guests getting into the steampunk spirit :) I have very happy memories!

Dress by my wonderful cousin, Rosie.
Dreads by the amazing Kellye (thecutealternative). Installed by me and my best friend Zoe.
Bridesmaids' dresses by the marvellous Wen-D.
Photos by the fabulous Jelena Aleksic and Huw Thomas.

Kellye, if you'd like pics just send my a PM and I can get some over to you :)

I adore the colour of your dress and your hair. It looks like an amazing day.

Also I'd love to know where your venue was, it looks incredible!

Thanks! It really was a perfect day.

Dystopatica - The venue was the Playfair Library which is part of Edinburgh University's Old College. It's an absolutely gorgeous venue and very appropriate as both me and my OH are academics and graduates of Edinburgh Uni. Oh, and it's pretty damn steampunk too ;)

I love it that so many people did their best to look steampunk-y! In stead of only the couple/bridesmaides/groomsmen. Looks like you had a wonderful day :mrgreen:

Thanks everyone. I was so happy with how involved the guests got. Our family and friends are obviously just crazy enough to like that kind of thing. My Dad got really into it! :D

Oh wow, that is so spectacular! Im really impressed that everyone participated in the style, even your parents. That adds so much to the atmosphere.
I had to look at all your pictures on flickr. What a wonderful idea for a wedding and so well executed. I have to admit that I am usually not too keen on steampunk. There are too many bad adaptations out there. But yours wedding pictures really impressed me. Respect.
But even so, amid the tornadoed Atlantic of my being, do I myself for ever centrally disport in mute calm; and while ponderous planets of unwaning woe revolve round me, deep down and deep inland there I still bathe me in eternal mildness of joy.
