We set up some activities for our wedding guests to participate in, with a nod to Alice in Wonderland as a theme.
We asked two friends to help us with a photo booth, the camera was set up at the end of a room using the stone wall as a backdrop. We put together a hamper full of props – top hat, rabbit ears, fake moustaches, roses, giant playing cards, feather boa, monocle, pipe, pocket watch and crown. Then leaving the camera in one position for every photo the fun began.
The second activity was a game of croquet. We bought two croquets sets (8 mallets and balls, 20 wickets and 4 posts) and a pack of giant playing cards. We used cable ties and glue to attach the cards to the hoops and set these up on a grassy area, starting from ace and ending at king using the diamond suit. We spray painted the croquet mallets pink and used marker pen and black paint to draw flamingo faces/beaks on the end of each mallet and added googly eyes to the drawn faces.
