We have just arrived home from a weekend of fun and wonder!
Pete's cousin Oliver and his wife-to-be Liz decided to do something a little different for their wedding and went with a Steam Punk theme. If you don't know, this theme is derived from what the world would be like if the world was without the power of the atom being discovered. The world would be very machanised with a Victorian-Punk Gothic look. After a bit of research, my clan went shopping in all the second hand stores and came up with some fun things that with a little adaption, came to look around the right style ready to go...
check out the shoes I found for a measley $4!! Great for a Victorian-Gothic look!
The wedding itself was held in the Sawtell Picture theatre so everyone had a great seat to see everything, and then we could partake in the candy bar afterwards - can't beat that! Sorry I can't show you the bride and groom saying there vows - just much too dark to take a good photo from where I was sitting!
Just take a look at Liz's boquet - all the lights were lit in a magical display!
The reception was in the Bellingen Hall and reminded me of a Madhatter's Tea Party with two long tables, and no two things matching, candelabras, velvet armchairs, whimiscal lighting and music - just amazing!
Also amazing was, when you entered, you were given a gorgeous bag to fill (a bit like a treasure hunt) with badge, egg of flower seeds (seed bombs) and a moutache (of course, thankfully optional wear!!)
...and look at how the menus were folded!!
