    A Rustic Glam Outdoor Wedding At The Edge, Bali

    There’s plenty to love about this wedding. It is elaborate but in a very soothing and dreamy way, perhaps because of the colours, and we absolutely love it. It gives the wedding much warmth. We love how the family all dressed in black to create contrast. And we adore the idea of bridesmaids ditching the dresses; they look equally feminine in their jumpsuits. Thank you, Axioo, for sharing this with our readers.

    Hipster LEGO Nautical Theme

    We love our yellow bricks so we were thrilled to see this LEGO backdrop, and those place card holders are genius! It put a smile on our faces to see Eunice in her adorable black frame glasses – it always makes us happy when brides are comfortable and confident in themselves, and don’t feel the pressure to look like someone else on their wedding day. Thanks, Rosette Design & Co and Ian Photography, for sending over this one.

    LEGO Couple Travels Around The World

    The Big Prawn at Ballina, New South Wales, Australia LEGO Travellers: A “couples project” that’s worth checking out. Craig and Lindsey love to travel so when Craig gave Lindsey two LEGO mini-figures to represent them while in Paris for her 30th birthday, it was the start of a new and fun project. Ever since that very first photo of this LEGO couple at the Eiffel Tower, the mini-figures have travelled around the world with Craig and Lindsey, which by the way is a very clever way of documenting their travels. These photos would make a really great short video, or look amazing as Polaroids in a room filled with helium…

    Custom Wedding Converse Shoes

    A theme that was anchored with yellow and blue, with custom made Converse shoes to match. Also, LEGO cufflinks and personalised boutonnieres. Welly: “The best moment was when we exchanged our vows; it was very personal and emotional, and there was also the realisation that all our hard work preparing for the wedding had paid off. We wanted to have an intimate wedding, one that would be remembered by family and friends. Hence our wedding theme was personal, fun yet unique. We chose the Lombok Lodge because it is one of the most beautiful and luxurious private villas in Lombok, and the venue allowed the sunset to become the backdrop…

    ‘The Hobbits’ Rustic Themed Wedding

    It is one thing to like the Lord Of The Rings movies, but quite another to put together a LOTR-themed wedding. In Singapore, where there are limited outdoor spaces for weddings, this couple took up the challenge of making their dream wedding come true, despite having their ceremony and reception in a hotel. The gate-crashing ceremony pictures look epic, and there was clearly lots of DIY work involved. Each reception table was named after a mythical land, and the rustic look and green colour really made the space look like an enchanted wood. Siying and Gerald even had personalised tags on all their favours. Thanks to the assistance of their…

    The Child In Us

    Axioo send us this wedding and we couldn’t wait to share it with you all. This wedding is a great example of how you can fulfill your dream of having a beautiful wedding and still inject a touch of your personality into it. Fenny and Steven added colour to their all-white wedding ceremony with LEGO bricks, making theirs a wedding just too creative to be ignored.

    The Art Of The Bricks by Dean West and Nathan Sawaya

    We were in the midst of compiling a whole set of LEGO-inspired weddings when we stumbled upon this collaboration between hyper-real Australian photographer Dean West and LEGO sculptor Nathan Sawaya. IN PIECES is a series of carefully crafted images with LEGO sculptures that you hardly notice. We understand this isn’t a wedding, but that’s our point – we believe that great work inspires greatness. Also, we haven’t really found any interesting LEGO-themed weddings yet. Even if the only LEGO object is one very simple coffee cup, we think it’ll make a pretty kick-ass bridal photo. And to the LEGO fans out there, surely you can do better than LEGO cufflinks…

    Occupation Inspired Wedding Details

    To be honest, most of us do not have the luxury of taking half a year off work to plan our wedding. Since we spend most of our waking hours at work, it’s not a bad idea to find inspiration there. Take a break and look around your workplace – ideas are right before your eyes. From paper goods to signs, uniforms or even nametags, all you need to do is add a little humour, and they could be the personal touch that makes your wedding yours. 1 pilot weds stewardess: cake topper / 2 surgeon: LEGO cufflinks / 3 director: movie clapper made from vinyl record album / 4…

    Stop Motion Ideas

    Stop motion is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. Stop motion can be done with literally anything. Here is a list of good ideas and mediums: Vintage Style – The images for this stop motion video were shot during the couple’s weekend roadtrip to San Luis Obispo using a DSLR. Other images were taken in various locations near their home. All images are single frames that they put together to create this stop motion video, which…
