As Lewis Carol fans ourselves here at Brides Up North HQ, we quickly fell head over heels (and down the rabbit hole) when viewing images from Roxanne and Shane’s beautiful big day, inspired by the author’s most notable novel.
Brining in lots of “eat me” and “drink me” elements, plus Wonderland style décor and a beautifully on-theme cake, we’d say the couple did an excellent job of incorporating nods to Alice, while still making their celebrations both romantic and personal.
The fine backdrop of Iscoyd Park, elegant attire and pretty blooms complete the fairy tale feel and have us grinning Cheshire-cat style.

roxanne says: We got engaged on the beach in Cuba. It was the second night of our first holiday together.
We got married on 22nd October 2016. We picked this date as it meant we would have the same anniversary as Shane’s parents.
Our chosen venue was Iscoyd Park in Wrexham, North Wales. It meant a lot to Shane as this is the area where he had grown up and, so he always wanted to marry in the area too. We had 80 guests for the day and 130 for the night. We chose Iscoyd Park as we both fell in love with the beautiful Georgian house and its exclusivity. It also had 5-star reviews.
Inspiration for the theme was taken from Lewis Carol’s Through the Looking Glass – I’ve loved Lewis Carol since I was little, and Alice in Wonderland is my happy place!
We picked green for the colour scheme as it’s my favourite colour and we felt that it was complement the theme too.
I ordered my wedding dress online – it was the closest I could find to the style I liked.
My bridesmaids wore green floor-length dresses, which I also found online.
Shane and the groomsmen wore dark blue suits from Groom in Chester.
