I think they look so happy because they got me into a fez!
This was a great example of a wedding where we managed to weave in a thee without it completely dominating everything. These guys were sci-fi fans – Doctor Who, Star Trek and Stargate especially. Kathryn and Colin wanted references in the ceremony that people who knew sci-fi would get but wouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb for those that didn’t.
That made for a lot of fun research. Interestingly, Doctor Who has quite a few quotes suitable for a wedding (especially since one of the more recent Doctors had a companion who was actually married), the various Star Trek series were OK but Stargate, not so much. The little sci-fi touches were in other places too. Such as me dressing as Matt Smith’s incarnation of Doctor Who, complete with the correct version of his sonic screwdriver.
As the MC for the rest of the wedding festivities, later on, I also got to see their awesome cake. Finally, Stargate found a way in – as a wedding cake topper!
It was a really fun wedding that I looked forward to for more than a year as we planned things. And great proof that you can have an out of this world theme without going over the top.
