As wedding photographers in Maidstone, we’ve seen all sorts of interesting themes and ideas for ceremonies – and it’s quite difficult to surprise us these days! But even we raised our eyebrows a little at the thought of taking photos at a Pokemon wedding, which is apparently a big new trend for nuptials over in Japan.
According to Unilad, Japanese wedding ceremony specialist ESCRIT has just teamed up with The Pokemon Company to offer officially licensed events based on the video game franchise (which features a small child travelling the world enslaving animals for their own personal glory).
So what bang do you get for your buck with a Pokemon wedding over in the Land of the Rising Sun? A huge Pikachu will oversee proceedings, you’ll enjoy official wedding favours, a Pokem,on-branded desert and a Pokemon cake with Pokeball macaroons – and the wedding certificate comes officially branded as well… perfect for all you seriously die-hard Pokemon fans out there.
Naturally, this isn’t the first time that a video game has been considered a hot topic for wedding themes. Take a look at the Ladies Geeking Out website for even more inspiration in this regard, as there are all sorts of photos from different weddings featured where the couple’s passion for video games is certainly more than evident.
We’ve spotted Mario, Space Invaders, Portal, Dungeons & Dragons and Borderlands… how many different games can you find?
We’d love to hear what you’ve got planned for your wedding in terms of theme, if anything, so get in touch to let us know.
