The Spy Who Loved Me
With themed weddings becoming ever more popular and the anticipation of the new bond film Spectre on its way to our screens this November i thought to do a piece on a bond themed wedding.
Well why ever not?? a heroic spy to save you from the world being destroyed, tuxedos, action, thrills, excitement and last but by no means least sumptuous cocktails. I mean really whats not to love in our mysterious man of the MI6….(ok so we’ll just ignore the womanising for the better good of this article!)
So we’ll begin with invites these can be easily played around your ‘bond’ theme, below is an idea for your starting point, we’d love to hear your own interpretations.
“Your mission should you wish to accept it….
You are cordially invited by her majesty’s secret service
to witness the marriage of ‘Miss Money Penny’ to ‘Mr Bond’”
And for the venue how about the beautiful Heatherden Hall of Pinewood studios, the famous home of the Bond films, this would make an absolutely stunning location for your wedding day.
Hiring casino tables and croupiers would make a nice touch to entertain your guests while photographs are being shot.
The ever famous shaken but not stirred vodka martini is a must for welcome drinks.
If you are having a sit down at your reception then naming your tables after bond villains would add to the secret agent atmosphere.
Speaking of villains Blofelds Turkish angora cat under your arm for some of the photos would really look the part should you know someone who has a friendly white cat you can borrow though i’m sure i’ve seen a very similar furreal in the toy shops!
Transportation is certainly a must for any avid bond fan and arriving in style in an Aston Martin DB5 is the obvious choice – this is bound to be a popular one with hubby to be.
And if you were thinking of having a photobooth make sure you add some bond-esque props to really bring your bond theme to life.
If all that (the world) is not enough you even have a choice of great songs for your first dance with “For Your Eyes Only” or how about the iconic “Nobody Does it Better” alternatively and as per the title of this blog “The Spy Who Loved Me”.
So go on delve into the fantastical world of cinematic magic with a James Bond themed wedding day because after all diamonds truly are forever…..
