Dr Who, Role Playing, Star Wars, Renee and Dave, Not a Typical Wedding | Hobart Wedding Photography Mona

There was one thing that Renee said to me when she was talking about photographing her wedding that set in my mind how this wedding was going to play out.

“We are getting married at St Davids and having the Imperial March from Star Wars as the Recessional Music”

My initial thoughts were that this is going to be fun with a touch of geek/nerd. You can go over the top when you are planning those little details in your wedding, too much and it’s overkill, too little and no one notices. Renee and Dave had it just at the right balance with the guests first inkling being the laughs and smiles as they realised that music coming from that sacred organ in that big old church was pure late 70’s Sci Fi.

There were the other touches too, the tardis on the garter, the tardis on the gifts table and the tardis with Tom Baker-esk scarf and caketoppers. Add in the button hole and cufflinks being role playing dice and you knew exactly who these guys were.

 

And who says geeks can’t look good? These guys looked fantastic and every other bit of the wedding was spectacular. The huge 4 million course guys breakfast, the red kombi for the girls, that great dress, those friendly butterflies, the brief zombie walk and a little boat trip out to the reception at MONA.

 

I think the best part was exactly what I knew it would be. The fun. Oh so much fun.

 

Dave and Renee are awesome, geeky and awesome. Congratulations on getting hitched and for doing it your way.
