Doctor Who Wedding Photography | Georgina & Craig | St David’s Hotel Cardiff
St David’s Hotel is situated overlooking Cardiff Bay, was a fantastic venue for Georgina & Craig’s Doctor Who wedding. The changeable summer weather was kind to us, torrential rain in the morning while Georgina was getting ready, but then the clouds cleared for afternoon wedding allowing us to get outside for a few pictures before the heavens opened again.
Gee & Craig are massive science fiction fans. When they first got in touch they described themselves as a little nerdy and were planning a few quirky twists for their sci-fi / Doctor Who themed wedding, I couldn’t wait to hear more about their plans! Apparently, I was the only photographers that listened to their ideas and thought about how we could incorporate the themes into the photos.
They had loads of Doctor Who wedding photography ideas and had a collated a selection of inspiration images, most of which we were able to incorporate into the wedding photos.
Craig’s wedding outfit was a replica of one of his favourite retro Doctor Who costumes, which he’d assembled himself and included a handy Doctor Who Screwdriver and secret supply of jelly babies.
Georgina is probably one of the most creative brides I’ve ever met. She had hand created almost everything, from the steampunk buttonholes with miniature clock-work clogs, flower bouquets with intricate detailing and customised flower girl costumes with time machine sashes, to the amazing Doctor Who wedding cake in the shape of a Doctor Who screwdriver, complete with inbuilt lighting. I’ve never seen anything like it! Just amazing!
Of course, there was a Tardis photo booth and sci-fi table decorations. I’m not sure the many, many lightsaber’s Craig had sourced “for the wedding” were completely on the theme, but they were great fun to play with in the evening!
It was a great day, one of the most memorable weddings I’ve had the privilege of photographing. A small selection of the Doctor Who wedding photographs at Cardiff St David’s Hotel are shown below.
