This Doctor Who wedding began with the sound of a TARDIS

You know we love a good Doctor Who wedding on Offbeat Bride. So I was stoked to get the chance to check out Gracie and Daniel's subtle take on the Doctor's world for their Los Angeles wedding last June!

Some details would be pretty hard to spot for those without a fan's eye. The sunflowers, for example, were a nod to an episode about Vincent Van Gogh. TARDIS blue was everywhere. And you'd have to be looking to spot Gracie's hand-painted Timey Wimey heels.

Of course, nonfans probably would have noticed the cutouts of the TARDIS, the weeping angel, and the cyberman at the reception. And they had to have noticed when Gracie's father entered the ceremony stating that he didn't know where she was — only to be drowned out by the sound of the TARDIS landing. Safely back from her adventures with the Doctor, Gracie met Daniel at the end of the aisle right on schedule.

Be sure to take a look at the reception's Whovian details! Guests munched on Dalek and TARDIS-shaped cookies, the cake featured a bride and groom escaping into the TARDIS from a pair of dinosaurs, and a photo booth included appropriate props like a fez, a sonic screwdriver, and 3D glasses.

  1. Dat topper tho! Where was it purchased?

    Such a beautiful wedding. I love the hand painted shoes. I was thinking of doing something similar since I cannot find ones I like.

    As one Whovian to another this wedding is FANTASTIC!

  3. I love this. Every. Single. Bit of it πŸ™‚

    The blue of the slip clothes and napkins in that glorious sunshine look fabulous. And the sunflowers in the church and bouquet. The Dress. The Cake.

    Gah … I love πŸ™‚

  4. I love all the details in this wedding, especially the cherry blossom cake! Any idea where the bride got her robe? It's beautiful. Also it looks like the fabric is pretty thick unlike most that I've seen that have a really thin fabric.

    1 agrees
  5. This was one of the best weddings I have ever been too. I am honored to have baked hundreds of Dr. Who themed cookies for their guests.
