Most of you reading this won’t know that along with being a Steampunk Airship Artist and Chiropractor, I’m also a non-denominational Wedding Officiant. Most of the ceremonies I do are the standard faire, but I do get the occasional opportunity to do something more fun. I’ve done weddings with an Aviation theme, Hawaiian theme and a couple Scotish Handfasting ceremonies, complete with Piper and kilts. I’ve even had an inquiry relating to a nudist wedding. Never, though, (and much to my dismay), have I had anyone request a Steampunk themed ceremony! Believe me, I would jump at the chance to perform a wedding with a Victorian or Steampunk theme!
What prompted this post was the blog post of a Steampunk friend in Washington state…Trial by Steam by Audelia Flint. In her latest post linked here, she cites another post by a wedding blog called OneWed’s Bridal Blog which talks about the latest trend, (click here). I think this trend holds enormous variation and excitement and I’d like to be one of the officiants to jump onboard and start providing services in this great genre!
If you are a bride-to-be and also a Steampunk aficionado, feel free to contact me to discuss the possibility of a one-of-a-kind Steampunk wedding ceremony for you and your beloved!
