UK Couple Marry Breaking Dawn Style and Change Name to Cullen

Meet Abigail and Andy from Bournemouth, newly weds who married on February 5th in a wedding that was entirely themed around Breaking Dawn Part 1! Not only that, but the couple also changed their name by deed poll to ‘Cullen’. The bride, who wore a traditional gown for the ceremony, changed later into a replica of Bella’s wedding dress. The couple walked down the aisle to songs from the soundtrack and even had a cake and decorations straight from the movie.

The couple brought Twilight into their special evening in many other pertinent ways as well.

Starting with music, Abby walked down the aisle to the instrumental version of Sleeping At Last’s “Turning Page,” and then the couple chose the vocal track for their first dance song. “Bella’s Lullaby” was played during their exit from the ceremony, and the entire Breaking Dawn – Part 1 album served as background music for their dinner. Oh, and Iron & Wine’s “Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version)” played during their first kiss as a married couple (as was done in the movie).

The Cullens also chose color schemes, floral arrangements, the bridal bouquet, and her wedding cake shape in consideration of both the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 wedding and the Twilight Saga books. Andy’s best man even used a Twilight pun in his speech, saying “Here’s to Bella and Edward.” Abby maintains he added the quip in very effectively.

The new Mrs. Cullen says that her husband is “very tolerant, bless him” for being such a good sport about it all. Indeed.
