Steampunk and rock music meet Indian cuisine for a wonderfully alternative wedding.
Everything went like clockwork for newlyweds Lee and Natasha Fisher when they married at Barnsley Town Hall on 10 June 2017.
Looking back on the day, the couple said it was perfect despite the bridegroom feeling a little under the weather on the morning of the wedding.
Even a bit of early rain cleared up and the wedding party were able to gather together for some fabulous wedding photographs after the civil ceremony.
Lee, who works as a Delivery Driver and Natasha, a Marketing Assistant, met over eight years ago through their love of alternative rock music. After setting up home in Carlton, they became engaged and then gave themselves nine months to plan their dream wedding day.
For the wedding ceremony, Natasha wore an ivory lace gown with a fitted bodice and a full skirt from Barnsley’s Elegance Bridal Studio. Her seven bridesmaids which included the bride’s three sisters, two step-daughters and two friends, all wore individual dresses in different designs and shades of teal.
The bride’s mother, Beverley made all the bouquets which featured ivory flowers embellished with vintage elements including brooches, buttons and cogs to match in with their chosen steampunk theme (a style that combines historical elements with 19th Century technological features).
She also made all the table decorations and centrepieces, while a friend of Natasha’s created the invitations, and on the day stationery. Everything was designed to tie in with the steampunk style, and featured the colours gold, copper and teal.
The theme extended to the couple’s wedding cake, which was created by a family friend and was made up of three different flavoured tiers; chocolate sponge, a Victoria sponge and a red velvet sponge.
Natasha said: “We had a real DIY wedding with family and friends helping us with decorations, stationery and the cake, but it was lovely to see everything come together on the day and it all worked perfectly. It was a really big help to get everyone involved, even my dad used his old Mercedes for our wedding transport.
“My favourite part of the day was when Lee saw me walking down the aisle and teared up. I never expected him to be emotional.
After the ceremony, the wedding party enjoyed an Indian buffet meal at the nearby Chilli Bar & Restaurant in Barnsley town centre, followed by an evening party in the upstairs Chill Champagne Bar. Around 95 guests attended the service and enjoyed the Asian style wedding meal with more guests invited to the evening celebrations.
Indian food is the couple’s favourite and all the guests approved of their choice and really enjoyed the reception which was far removed from a traditional sit-down wedding meal.
Their chosen table names created a real talking point too, being named after Natasha and Lee’s favourite rock bands, with some guests finding themselves seated at ‘Stone Sour’ and ‘Five Finger Death Punch’.The day after the wedding, Lee and Natasha travelled to Abersoch in Wales for a week-long honeymoon – but they were not alone – as they decided to turn it into a family affair with a party of 10 journeying to the popular Welsh coastal resort on the Llyn Peninsula where they all enjoyed seven days of really lovely warm weather. “A perfect end to a wonderful wedding”, said Natasha.
