I WHO …. Something Old Something New.. Something Borrowed and…. A Few Daleks

Posted on Updated on

MakeItWorkShop’s resident Daleks Dread and Drik recently had 2 very special Vip invitations and were extremely excited.

Will Corfield and Nicola Oldham were celebrating a Whoovian themed wedding at the fabulous Lakeside Suite in Southport.

Sworn to their best behaviour not to exterminate anyone, Drik and Dread made their way along Lord Street towards the reception.

They did stop for a few Selfies on the way with a few shoppers wanting to say Hi.

Both the Bride and groom looked amazing and Bridesmaids were all dressed in Tardis blue.

The Bride and Groom were seated at the head table with their own Sonic Screwdrivers side by side. Dread and Drik were behind. This gave them a great vantage point to see all the guests and plot their demise if they misbehaved.

It was a family friendly Doctor Who wedding. They used blue as a key colour … which was completed with a beautiful Doctor Who cake topper – The Doctor and His Companion running. Decorated in Gallifreyian text – the language of the Time Lords. It looked amazing.
The Lakeside Suite was a perfect location overlooking the Marine Lake. The entrance was adorned with a River Song Journal as a Guest Book which the team signed on behalf of Drik and Dread. There were also small wooden hearts to write a message on and post into a picture frame. The Tardis blue theme carried into the blue chair sashes and napkin ties, and also had blue LEDs in the centre pieces

Thank you for a wonderful day Will and Nicola Oldham.

Dalek Drik (our 7ft gold Dalek) is available for hire and a quote on request can be provided. Dalek Dread (5ft Black Dalek) has returned to Skaro and isnt returning our calls at the moment.

A wonderful couple Sian and Simon showed their love of everything Dr Who by having a Dr Who themed Wedding recently. It was fantastic when they got in touch because they had seen our Daleks at Southport Comic Con and asked if we could bring them along to surprise the guests.

We were delighted as Drik and Dred are both mobile and have ring modulators to speak and sound like a Dalek.

Well wisher, family and guests attended dressed as characters from the much loved sci-fi series. There were different incarnations of the Doctor himself everywhere and even a Cyberman.

As he was out exterminating the people of Southport when the upgrade was done to enable elevation up the stairs, Dread had to be carried down a few steps on arrival! Thankfully a few lovely guests helped as he is quite a big boy and weighs a bit.

We and the Daleks had a wonderful time and, so pleased were the happy couple Sian and Simon that they shared some of their wonderful memories from the day with us.
