Over the summer the Artisan Maskers collaborated with a whole team of amazing artists to put together a fantasy Circus-themed wedding shoot. Here’s a quick spread of the carnival madness that ensued!
First, we have our Tightrope Walker bride. She preps for the big day with a gorgeously bizarre assemblage of bridesmaids (below): a Clownette, a Lion Tamer, a Fortune Teller, and even a mustachioed Ringmaster!
Next up, our Clown of a Groom and his fabulous Groomsmen: the Magician, the Roustabout, and, okay, the “Lion”, too…
A few choice shots of the Bride and Groom…
And, then, the gang’s all here! Time for the party to START!
So, what do YOU think? Could a Circus be in your marital future? ;D
Please, have a look at all of the incredible artists that made this shoot possible!
Mini Top Hats, Clownette Ruff, Dog Ruff, Feather Bouquet – Because It Sparkles
Crystal Bridal Headband and Belt – Clay Bouquet Shop
Bustle Skirt and Groom/Best Man Jackets – DAS
Little Miss Muffett Garter – Never A Plain Jane Designs

(Not pictured: Wedding Streamers – Extravagant Exits )
You can have great photos, even if you don’t have the budget to pay your photographer to edit them all for you! Many photographers offer a limited number of edited JPEGs in your photo package. But, if you have other good shots and even a very basic editing program, you can take mediocre pictures to memories worth keeping! (Most computers come with a basic photo-editing program, but if yours doesn’t have one, you can do most of the following with just the editing programs that photo-ordering sites provide.)
It’s summer time and you know what that means!
The carnival is coming to town and you have a wedding to plan 🙂
Themed weddings can be a break from the traditional church going crowd.
Imagine having a Pie-in-your-Face stand instead of the traditional smearing of the cake all over your significant other. Or how about fresh popped popcorn as a welcome munchie? We know the birdies like it better than rice.
From the invitations to the person who pronounces you husband and wife (or ringmaster and ringmistress) you can have a themed wedding to fill your carny desires!
