References to Star Wars, Harry Potter, dinosaurs and Lego were a must-have at the wedding of Meaghan Price and Luke Tonkin.
The couple ensured their down-to-earth special day was a beautiful mix of casual, geek and intimacy, on the day that also marked their seven-year anniversary.
Staying true to their theme, Meaghan walked down the aisle to a rendition of the Jurassic Park theme song.
The couple’s first dance was to their favourite song from television series, The Flash, and the pair left the venue to a disco version of the Star Wars theme.
The bridal party had a lightsabre/wand fight in the car park, and the guest book was in the shape of a wooden Lego man.
The pair made several pop-culture references in their vows, and the couple often re-watch their wedding video to hear the vows again.
The bride wore an A-line gown with three-dimensional lace, and sheer back, while the groom wore a charcoal suit, with a Star Wars-themed tie and cufflinks.
The couple had plans to go to Disneyland and Universal Studios in Los Angeles for their honeymoon. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions were unable to travel.
Meaghan admits she waited a little longer than she hoped for Luke to propose, revealing he missed the “perfect opportunity” to propose in front of the Disney or Hogwarts castle on their trip to the USA in 2018.
It was in 2020 when Luke got down on one knee and proposed to Meaghan in their lounge room, with her favourite bloom, sunflowers, and a Vera Wang ring they had chosen together.
The bride’s attendants were Rhiannon Price and Natasha Atkins.
Groom’s attendants were Kelsey Tonkin and Richard Cornhill.
Meaghan is the daughter of Caroline and Garry of Gawler East, and Luke is the son of Linda and Brett of Gawler East.
