A DIY Super Hero Theme Derbyshire Wedding: Becky Brown and Kris Addy

In their Marvel-inspired wedding, Becky and Kris entertained guests with super hero mask favours and invited Spider-Man to hit the dancefloor come the evening. Bride shares the story of their marvellous day at Hotel Van Dyk near Chesterfield

With vivid pink and red accents, custom-made comic book shoes, cartoon figurines and Lego memorabilia everywhere, the wedding of Becky and Kris maintained a fun yet stylish edge with a big dose of personality. As soon as we saw this unique Marvel Avengers and Lego-themed wedding, we simply had to share it.

How did you meet?
Kris and I were work colleagues who just shared the same fun-loving attitude.

What was the theme for the day, and did you have a colour scheme?
The Avengers. Fun and Bright! We made everything we could and it made it feel more personal to us. We decided (as a comic book and all things geeky couple) to have Marvels Avengers and Lego as the theme. From the Lego Avengers table plan, superhero masks as favours and our handmade Avengers shoes we made most of it ourselves and could go as crazy as we liked.

What was your favourite story from the day?
Well Spider-Man turned up in the evening! He had a little dance with the bride and groom, and posed for some great photos.

And your favourite moments?

We obviously enjoyed every minute but it was a lot of fun to sneak off for our pictures after the wedding breakfast. The sun was just setting and we got to talk to each other for a little bit. Our photographers, Mike and Tom, were professionals from the start. Their reportage style of photography was exactly what we wanted to capture the fun element of our wedding.

We had a fun pre-wedding shoot in the woods at Clumber Park in Nottingham to take away the awkwardness of posing for photos but we didn't need to worry. We ended up with lots of natural pictures of us holding hands and smi
ling at each other and we knew then we had made the right choice.

What was the most costly part of the wedding?

We felt our venue Van Dyks was worth spending a little extra, and it turned out to be more than worth it. The cheapest was definitely making a lot of our own things.
