A Comic Book Wedding with Lightsabers and Lego – what’s not to love?
As there’s no wedding this weekend, it’s time for a throwback to this gorgeous wedding from 5th November 2016. Raquel and Robin got married on a day to remember-remember, and styled themselves a bit of a bonanza.
Raquel was extremely handy in getting all the details together for the day, she made her amazing flowers for a start… Check them out below – they’re comic book wedding flowers held together in a lightsaber handle. If you’re having an alternative bash where things aren’t the “norm”, then you can do well by planning and preparing for a DIY wedding!
Today is also the birthday of Steph from Bake to Differ, the very clever lady who made the fantastic and funny Lego Wedding Cake below…
The way that Robin and Raquel threw their personalities onto their wedding day was relentless – exactly as it should be! Everywhere I looked there was a fab, quirky and most importantly COLOURFUL addition to the day. Whether that be their pop-up photobooth, guests in handmade clothing, table decor or a handmade comic waistcoat by the Groom’s mother!
Robin had a surprise up his sleeve too, planned with the help of the good-humoured Registrar… When the time came for Robin to lead Raquel from their ceremony, traditionally Raquel stood on his left hand side – nearest his heart, but also so that his right side was free to defend her honour… with the lightsaber which had been hidden behind the curtain the whole time…!
So many laughs and silly faces during Robin & Raquel’s wedding, anyway. They and their friends and family had a real hoot. Some of Raquel’s family attended from Spain and Columbia – they made the most of the party!
A real joy to photograph, in any case! More cool weddings please!
