For a wedding day with a difference, look no further than Heather & Simon’s The Westville Hotel wedding day. From start to finish, the wedding had oodles of their personality, really bringing out their fun side, which was a huge hit with guests.
I first met the couple at a wedding fair and we hit it off straight away. The first thing Heather asked me was if I could put a Death Star in their wedding photos. This was her test to find a photographer that would be a good fit for her. Needless to say, I passed.
Heather works in a planetarium and Simon is a teacher. They met at a history society at university and share a passion for Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and all things comic book related so it was amazing seeing these flawlessly carried throughout their wedding day.
Their wedding cake was a spectacular replica of the castle from Lord of the Rings, while all the tables were named after things like Harry Potter, The Hobbit and Star Wars. Simon’s uncle was the florist, providing all the flowers, which was another personal touch.
hounirThe Star Wars element of their wedding was a real highlight. Before the bridal party arrived, there were Disney and other movie scores playing. After the ceremony, the happy couple walked down the aisle as everyone raised light sabres, and a guard of honour from Jedis and stormtroopers I was definitely in my element!
The ice-cream cart was also a huge hit. Heather and Simon made sure they both got some before leaving for the creative shoot at Castle Coole
What a wedding! Congratulations guys.
