Time Lords, Daleks, the TARDIS, and two hearts… this truly is a Doctor Who extravaganza. The groom tells this tale and you can totally tell that this is truly his dream wedding. We're psyched that this geek boy found his perfect geek girl. Oh, and just try to keep the tears at bay when you read the groom's vows. Siiiiigh.

This pair loves their Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones and managed to seamlessly integrate their geeky interests into their decor. They also totally found a way to hack their social anxiety by having escape routes and special signals when things got too overwhelming. Plus, you'll love the bride's black Dr. Marten's hidden under her floofy white dress!
A glossary program, library book ring holder, author table names, and a big old stack of books made out of cake — we LOVE book week! This wedding is a double dose of awesome with a ceremony and reception at a California vineyard and a second reception in Glasgow, Scotland! We're glad a book kept these two together so we could see this wedding!
You might remember this short and busty bride from her custom dress process. We've now got the whole story including their fabulously elegant guild hall venue, amazing vintage travel theme, and celebrity moments on the way to the church and after the ceremony. Plus, spy all the sweet pastel details like the cupcakes, the confetti, and the buttons on the back of the bride's dress!
A countryside handfasting, geeky references all over the place, and sweet homemade touches (like the bride's handmade dress!) — this UK wedding is a dream for geeky lovers of gorgeous scenery. Add in some giant lawn games like Jenga and Connect Four and this turned into a seriously fun fête. Keep a look out for the Blackadder reference in the unity ceremony, too!
This pair wanted to celebrate their faith, their family tartans, and their EPIC Scottish clifftop scenery. They had handmade tush cushions for sitting on the rocks, kilts and tails, and a really good way to mingle AND thank you guests after the ceremony. Plus, you'll love the way they handled some objections to their wedding planning choices.
An October wedding, vintage and antique details, and candidates for "most adorable bridesmaids" awards are awesome, but then you see the bride and groom. Birdcage veil, a tattoo sleeve, bespectacled dude… we're hooked. This UK couple knows how to be adorable AND throw an amazingly crafty shindig.
If you're one of the many non-religious couples in Britain who are thinking about having a humanist wedding, you'll want to read up on our sponsor Humanist Ceremonies. Yes, humanist weddings are still not (yet) legally recognized in England and Wales, so you'll still have to go to the register office to take care of the legal formalities a few days before or after your humanist wedding. However, a huge advantage of a these humanist weddings is that you can have complete freedom to express yourselves on your wedding day. Here's how…
Emily and Phil met in 2002 through mutual friends in the UK Garrison, a Star Wars 501st legion group, and have been together ever since. The pair chose to have a wedding that combined all of their favorite things: leopard print, music, and, of course, Star Wars. The bridal party wore leopard-printed dresses to match Emily's self-designed shoes, and the bride's floor-length red bridal gown was matched by the groomsmen's red shirts.
With some of us bundled up for the cold, nothing looks more inviting than a picnic wedding complete with baskets of homemade food, blankets on the fields of an orchard, and lawn games galore. Follow it all up with four hours of ceilidh dancing, and there's a major party on your hands!
