For readers in the dark about the term Steampunk, it is ‘a creative social movement that draws inspiration from Victorian and pre-war history in an anachronistic mix of science fiction, modern values and a sense of fun.’ Now you know.

This was the unusual theme chosen by two devotees of the movement, Amanda Jolly and Jason Seddon, for a wedding celebration staged in the spectacular surroundings of Gorton Monastery, a restored architectural masterpiece in Manchester, where they both live.

All the guests entered into the spirit of the Steampunk theme wearing their most fabulous attire - including hats, bustles, corsets and cogs. The bride wore a sumptuous dark red taffetta complete with bustle and the Registrar was forced to admit he felt under-dressed in his suit.

Jason, from the Blackpool and Thornton Cleveleys areas, and Yorkshire lass Amanda met 22 years ago at Manchester University, where they both work.

This is a free service to readers of Lancashire Life. If you have a family wedding and you would like it to appear in Lancashire Life email the picture and details to
