Fictional Follies | Claire and Jamie

We're headed to the Highlands for this next instalment of Fictional Follies, and yes - there are kilts.

If you're a fan of Outlander like we are then you are on the edge of your seat waiting for the next season. You wish you had time-travel so you could get there faster. So meanwhile, we thought we'd take a little look at what a modern day Claire and Jamie Fraser wedding would look like.

Yes so we already saw a wedding in 18th century Scotland, but let's have a go at bringing it into modern day where they had nice things like crockery and proper underwear.

First off, this thing is going to be super intimate. Maybe not quite an elopement - maybe a few clansmen and women - but a small gathering for a ceremony and a beautiful, simple picnic with a view.

For Claire, we're thinking simple, long-sleeve lace gowns with a bold, unusual, statement bouquet. A simple beaded or nature-inspired crown on a messy updo.

The table is moody and messy with wildflowers, fruit and gathered objects adorning the table for a fine celebratory feast.

And of course, off they head afterwards into the Highland mist together in a vintage car.

Fictional Follies: Sheldon and Amy

Today's Fictional Follies instalment is a love so scientifically perfect, so iconic, so beautifully nerdy - it's Dr Sheldon Cooper and Dr Amy Farrah Fowler. 

So what would this glorious coming together of minds look like? There's just too much geeky goodness to choose from.

Both Amy and Sheldon, despite their outer quirkiness, we think would both still just want to look amazing. A slick tuxedo for Sheldon to play out a James Bond fantasy, and for Amy a simple gown and bolero fit for a princess (remember her bridesmaid dress for Howard and Bernadette's wedding? Yeah ya do). Oh and sensible shoes.

But though there is tradition at heart of it, there's a whole lot of fun to be had with their wedding design. Drawing inspiration from their work and their hobbies, reflecting their personalities like a good wedding should.

A simple, white tiered wedding cake with comic book detailing is the perfect summary of their traditional meets quirky day, as well as the groomsmen's simple grey suits with a pop of yellow in their matching converse.

Brainy details like the seating plan of periodic tables, and the signage made up from elementary symbols. Scientific beakers house beautiful blooms, or custom cocktails.

A wedding in which Sheldon was the groom wouldn't be right without a ton of popular culture references. Games, TV shows and movies would have their own role to play in decking out the reception space.
