Wonderland Themed Wedding Photos Are Adorable, A Little Creepy: Just Like Alice in Wonderland


That’s right: these aren’t engagement photos. According to Bit Rebels, these are Erin and Matt‘s actual wedding photos, inspired by Alice in Wonderland (with a lot of credit to the Tim Burton adaptation, clearly).

And while the details are certainly lovingly crafted, part of me is most impressed by Erin’s sausage curls. That sort of thing isn’t easy!

Oh, sorry darling, I appear to have gotten makeup on your forehead. Please accept my apologies. And this cat.

Now here’s a gesture that’s actually very appropriate to the old fashioned definition of a marriage ceremony. Paint ‘em red!

    I can’t believe two people actually liked Burton’s wonderland this much (besides jeez, could they have found a more anti-marriage movie?), but God Bless. He’s done enough disappointing adaptations for them to imitate a new one every anniversary.

    Now tell us how you REALLY feel about Burton’s adaptations.

    I liked Big Fish and Ed Wood. Other than that…

    Really no nightmare before christmas? sure they hype for it went to insane levels but it was still pretty awesome for a kids film. A kid opened up a severed head for a christmas present!.

    Anti marriage? I don’t think it was against marriage as such…just marriage for reason like class and wealth. 

  • Frodo Baggins

    When the only marriage portrayed in a film is one for reasons like class and wealth, and it’s presented as the standard state of affairs, and it’s flatly rejected by the narrative in favor of business advancement, I’d say yes, the film is critical of that institution. Not that I objecting to such a theme in and of itself, it’s just an odd choice for a wedding.

    It was good, and due props to Burton for being the creative progenitor, but he didn’t write or direct. Based on the comparative quality of Corpse Bride and Coraline, I’m inclined to give more credit to Henry Selick.

    I don’t care about the critical thinking about how the themes of the film relate – this is a magnificent photo set.

    It’s quite lovely.

    Actually, I’ve just spent the last two weeks studying Alice in Wonderland extensivley, and the biggest metaphor in the story (backed up by tons of evidence from both the story itself and Lewis Carroll’s personal beliefs), is that growing up and getting married are like death. So yeah… he’s right. This is a VERY anti-marriage story. That said, awesome wedding! I think everyone should be allowed to marry how they want.

    Tim Burton wrote Nightmare Before Christmas. The movie is based in his original poem he wrote. If you really want to call people on things that you don’t like. At least get your facts straight.

    God Coraline was a good movie.  MORE NEIL GAIMAN MOVIE ADAPTATIONS!!!!

    That’s what I meant by “creative progenitor.” When one refers to whom a movie was “written” by, it means the screenwriter. Like how George Lucas was the creative progenitor for all the Star Wars movies, but didn’t write Empire or Jedi.

    It’s a fun, creative, lovely and pretty darned well done way of celebrating a tradition. You might agree with marriage or not, like or dislike Burton and/or the book, but at the very least give the couple props for making this instance their own.

    And yes, Erin’s hair is fabulous! It looked green on my screen in the first picture, which made it even more awesome.

    Hi, this is actually and engagement shoot and it’s one of my all time favourites. I love Alice in Wonderland themed weddings, engagements and styled shoots. I got in touch with the photographer, Lauren Brimhall, and she told me all about Erin and Matt’s themed engagement. I posted a feature all about it on my blog http://www.averycuriouswedding.com. I post a lot of Alice in Wonderland wedding inspiration on there.
