Asian Steampunk Wedding Inspiration


Asian Steampunk Wedding Inspiration

I’ve already published quite a number of steampunk weddings on this blog, but have you ever seen a steampunk wedding with an Asian twist? If you find that hard to imagine, I’m sure this gorgeously styled bridal inspiration shoot will help you visualize it because this talented bunch of vendors sure nailed the look!  I see it as a mix of  Wong Kar Wai’s “In the Mood for Love” and “Chungking Express” + a healthy dose of H. G. Well’s “The Time Machine” (which are excellent inspirational pegs) and the result is an unexpectedly fresh and quirky motif that you can take inspiration from for your own celebration.

We have Jessica Young of JKB Young Photography to thank for this submission and here she is with a few words about the shoot:

I am beyond excited to share this Asian Steampunk inspired bridal session with you! We really wanted to put something together that we’ve never seen before– and all of us are more than just a teensy bit in love with Steampunk so we decided to take it East!

Jessica is here to take you through the elements that make up this Asian Steampunk wedding inspiration shoot:

For our venue, we were able to shoot at Apotheke, a hidden speakeasy in Chinatown in New York City. Inspired by the absinthe dens in Paris, this local was unbelievably mysterious and romanic. With the help of Fox Event and Design– we styled an eastern-inspired Steampunk wedding, complete with exotic floral arrangements by Annalisa Style flowers, one-of-kind invitations by My Lady Dye, and vegan chocolate favors by Chocolate Meurens.

Our escort table was set up on the bar. We used large bouquet of branches and orchids and hung our escort card along with vintage keys. The vase was wrapped with moss which made it absolutely stunning!

Instead of a cake table, we decided to have a featured “libations” table– selecting  two of our favorite house drinks (“Violet Hour” and “Root of the Earth”).  The area was set up with a gramophone, giant clock, drinks, and a test tube beaker for a floral vase.

For our sweetheart table, we had cutlery that was shaped like actual skeleton keys. Along with the floral decor, we also used mirrors with quotes written in lipstick to go along with the more seductive ambiance of the venue.

Our dress, created by Jonche & Co. specifically for this event, was designed in white eyelet cotton and black  leather. The dress itself was spaghetti strapped with a skirt of multiple layers of lace and fabric. Over the dress, the bride wore a short cropped vest, trimmed in leather and a chinese closure. Around her waist, she wore a samurai style belt, which matched her black leather boots.
