“I think our wedding was so different because it was so much of me and Daryl, everyone who came said it was definitely the best and most unique wedding they had ever been part of.”
Today I get to share with you Emily & Daryl’s super cool wedding, filled with little hints of awesomeness based on their love for Lego, videos games, Lord Of The Rings and so much more! There’s even a ring bearing owl – everyone loves an owl! With stunning photography from Helen Russell.
We wanted our wedding to reflect us as a couple. We are both pretty unique people, We tried to bring in a little bit of ourselves in everything that we did. The wedding cake Lego base was inspired by Daryls love of Lego although we had originally toyed with the idea of zombie apocalypse on the Tyne bridge during the great north run. The music we chose for the service was all from our favourite video games and Daryl’s hat reflected his interest in steam punk.
We chose to have the wedding rings based on the one ring from lord of the rings based on a mutual love of LOTR and my own personal family connection to the Tolkien society.
“I got my sleeve started just after we started planning the wedding and the tattoo artist was brilliant he pushed my appointment up so I could get it finished in time for the big day.”
Daryl built the cake base himself out of Lego and that took about 4 months but he really enjoyed doing it. All the table numbers and place settings where made by hand by me I enjoyed filling up the bottles with glitter .
My favourite part was the owl swooping in with the rings followed by the groomsmen battling for 5 minutes to get them off said owl. Daryl’s favourite was the cake, he was so pleased to eat it after spending many months battling with bits of Lego.
How much is this wedding full of awesomeness! Thank you to both Emily & Daryl for sharing their wedding day with Marry Me Ink today and to photographer Helen Russell for the beautiful photographs! Be sure to leave them some love!
