This gorgeous piece of Mediterranean architecture is brought to us by Italian builder Gabriele Rava. The church’s asymmetry works beautifully to highlight the bell tower, and the building is loaded with great details, from the mixture of white and tan for the peeling surfaces to the wonderfully simple dark orange textured roof over the nave. The small chapel sits atop a tall quay with a spacious courtyard, which is currently hosting a wedding attended by a wide variety of personages, up to and including Dumbledore officiating.
A marriage signifies two people coming together to build a shared future, and what better metaphor than building that future with LEGO bricks! After the rings and vows have been exchanged, it’s time for the couple to drive off into the sunset. Why not end the momentous occasion by getting behind the wheel of a luxurious antique car made by Pixeljunkie?
Pixeljunkie has made some wonderful cars in the past, but this one is probably my favorite. Elegant curves, custom chromed elements, and the white body feel inspired by a classic Rolls-Royce. For me, the icing on the cake includes the whitewall tires, velvet red interior upholstery, and the bugle elements as car horns. You can almost hear them let out a piercing “Ahoogah!”
In the West, the process of getting married is sometimes known as “getting hitched.” In Pixeljunkie’s case, his minfig couple and car are both getting hitched. In this case, it is the car getting hitched to a cute little trailer. Sounds like the honeymoon consists of some serious camping. Thankfully, the bride’s veil probably also doubles as a mosquito net.
It’s not often you see a build that you want to take a bite out of. But especially for this LEGO wedding cake, I’d think twice about my pearly whites before I took a mouthful. LEGO chef Handoko Setyawan brick-baked a LEGO cake for dear friends who clearly are fans of both Harry Potter and a galaxy far far away. The icing on this cake is not what is outside, but a hidden showcase of a diorama showcasing the couple’s favorite movies.
In traditional Chinese weddings, the bride is hidden from the public until marriage. The golden beads, a sign of wealth and fortune, acts as a veil to shield her face from curious onlookers. The ultra-rich showcase their wealth with intricate gold designs very much like the LEGO headdress built by Timothy Ng. Traditionally, the color red is very much a symbol of loyalty, fertility, and love and thus very much plays a vital role in Chinese weddings.
Devid VII is getting married. And what better way to celebrate than to build a beautiful little model to commemorate the occasion? The expressions on the character’s faces are lovely, and the top hat and veil add enough detail to make clear this is a bride and bridegroom. Finish it all off with an irregular base, a smart heart shape, and some flowers and you’ve got a perfect LEGO tribute to love. Good luck Devid — I hope you guys will be as happy together as the characters in your scene.
