Steampunk is a quirky vintage style that I am really loving at the moment. There is such a great scope for drama to be added throughout your wedding day with such a style. In our new issue of our magazine which goes on sale on Monday nationally we have put together a piece to get those who aren’t familiar with the genre up to speed along with some handy suggestions on ways to incorporate the steampunk style into your wedding day.
I know you all love a little inspiration to start the ideas flowing as to where you could take the style for your own wedding, and which elements from it that you love if you’re into it a little but don’t want a full on steampunk style wedding. We really love the quirky style of this steampunk wedding inspiration shoot photographed by Britta The Photographer from the Fargo in the United States and you may recognise some of the little details from the feature in our June issue when you get your hands on a copy!
Britta describes, “Part of the mission for these styled shoots was to give couples some great, new ideas for their wedding. And, we hope, it will allow our couples to think outside the box when planning their big day. Of all the styled shoots, the Steampunk shoot was the most wild, most alterntaive and definitely they one I would most LOVE to photograph in real life.
For those who are unfamiliar with Steampunk, think of any Tim Burton movie, add a few more clock parts and some classic Victorian styling, mix in great big dollop of punky attitude and voila: Steampunk.”Photography: Britta the Photographer, Fargo, ND Dress & Tux: The Bridal Shop (no longer open) Hair & Make Up: West 13th Salon, West Fargo ND Jewellery: Wimmer’s Diamonds Top Hats: Mara Morken Flowers & Bouquets: Shotwell Floral Stationery: Lindsay Arneson Creative Venue: Plains Art Museum Edibles: The Hotel Donaldson, Fargo, ND Gears, clock faces & pocket watch: Clockwerks Models: Ashley Thornberg (bride), Zach Zeis (Groom), Ana Mitrovici (Bridesmaid) and Justin Carey (groomsman)
