HUNTED: { Wedding Inspiration – Movie Inspired }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

“…Cinema, movies and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made films were magicians.” – Francis Ford Coppola 

I distincly remember during one of my meetings at my wedding venue having a discussion about songs to walk down the aisle to. I asked what the popular choice was. Our venue planner revealed they had had multiple couples walk down the aisle to the theme from Star Wars. I recall looking at my husband-to-be with a look that clearly said “who are these lunatics walking rough-shod over the sanctity of marriage that necessitates the Wedding March**?”

Ah but I was green to the wonders of wedding planning back then. I hadn’t realised how far couples were stretching the boundaries of normal.

I dislike the term “theme” when it comes to weddings. It sounds gimmicky. I prefer “style” which evokes a thoughtful concept rather than  a fancy dress party. The style that I remain dubious about since that fateful Star Wars day is the “inspired by the movies” one. But as I am non judgmental, if you are considering it, I’ve hunted some inspiration below for you.

(**incidentally we didn’t have the Wedding March during our day. I can’t help mentally singing the playground version when I hear it.)

Bride Gown Glamour Hollywood White

If you’re hoping to emulate movie magic, opt for a dress that cries Hollywood siren. This Caroline Castigliano design with beautiful crossover back is perfect.

Wedding Transport

Wedding Cars Black Unconventional

For movie magic, think transport that has graced the silver screen. If you go to American Dreams UK Vehicle Hire it’s possible to hire K.I.T.T – David Hasslehoff’s legendary talking car from the Knight Rider series. The car can even say a few choice phrases. It’s more small screen than cinema, but it’s still the stuff of screen legends.

Food & Drink

Wedding Styles Film Inspired

What could be more appropriate for a movie inspired wedding than to provide popcorn for your guests? Popalicious  hire machines that can provide multiple flavours – sparing the great salt vs sweet debate.

Wedding Signature Drinks Martini Movie Themed

Also on the food and drink theme; you could borrow from Bond and serve Martinise as welcome drinks. Any stirring naturally prohibited.

Wedding Tables Movie Inspired

Picking tables names is a cinch. Just choose your favourite movies and add quotes. I say it’s a cinch, but if you’re total film buffs you’ll probably quarrel over the ultimate film list.

Wedding Decor

Weddings film buffs decor

This is a very nice unusual idea for a movie centrepiece. Fill up glass vases with curls of old-fashioned cinema admission tickets, instead of the more traditional flower bouquet approach.

Wedding Cake

Wedding Cake Movies Inspired

If you can find a willing and able cake-maker, dispense with the traditional rounds and go for an elaborate Director’s Board Cake like this one.

As a final note, once you start looking for movie inspiration, you’ll find examples of weddings styled specifically around a single film : Harry Potter; Black Swan; Alice in Wonderland etc. I’m not going to break it down to that level . . . but the ideas are out there.

As Willy Wonka sang:

“Come with me, and you’ll be, in a world of pure imagination …”
