Aussie anime lovers tie the knot #Wedding Porn#australia#church#classic car#couples of color#geeky#origami#parasols#superhero#sydney March 20 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw Photos by: Jonathan David Photography One thing you must know about this couple, Karl and Kristina, is that they had this engagement shoot. Yep, that's a cosplay of the anime series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which was a shared interest when they met. Their wedding, while not an exercise in cosplay, totally had veins of their anime love throughout (including the main characters of their favorite show as the cake toppers!). Fashion also ruled the day with the bride's Kanzashi hair ornament, contemporary kimonos on the bridesmaids, and even some unexpected Green Lantern Corps details from the groomsmen. It's a little bit traditional, a little bit geeky, and a LOT bit right up our alley. Thanks to Jonathan David Photography for sharing the love. A geeky garden wedding with enough Doctor Who, Stargate, and space references to make you giddy If you could dream up a geeky celebration of love and life set in a garden, you'd probably come close to the wedding that Olivia...

The Green Lantern touches, the get-away car, the origami, everything! 3 agree Reply Beautiful wedding! I love the cake toppers with Kyon and Haruhi. That's one of my favorite animes. 2 agree Reply A great example of including your own personailty and style, while keeping a lot of traditional elements as well. And of course beautifully captured by Jonathan – he's shooting our wedding later in the year and we can't wait. 2 agree Reply Wow! Wow! Thank you for featuring our wedding! I just wanted to say I had a lot of inspiration from the site when we were planning it. The Kanzashi ornament was definitely from here. We also made our own props for the photobooth (though it's not shown here.) Thank you also to our fantastic photographer Jono for sending the tip! Again, thanks for featuring us! Never thought we'd get featured here, it is such a nice surprise! ^^ Cheers, Kristina & Karl 1 agrees Reply LOVE your crane place cards! Any chance you'd want to share how you did that awesomeness?!?! Reply My husband Karl was the one who actually made them, with my sister-in-law! I didn't do any as I'm bad at folding… I'll get him to reply on how they were made Reply Hi all, thanks for the awesome feedback wasn't expecting this to show up on a site like this, but it's definitely a pleasant surprise! RE: crane place cards – I'm pretty keen on origami so I was able to reverse-engineer it from when I saw a picture (starting with the basic origami crane). I stumbled into this a while back though and it takes you through the steps pretty well. Hope this helps! 1 agrees Reply Love, love, LOVE this! Everything is lovely, and I am totally stealing some ideas here! <3 Have a happily ever after! *high fives for fellow anime lovers!* Reply I love how elegant meets geeky for some serious geek chic! The romantic colors, the fun touches, LOVE IT! I love that get away car, and the bridesmaids dresses, too! Wow. Too much to love here.
