Weddings have moved light years away from the clichéd bride in a white gown, the bland exchanging of vows, the supposedly chic after-party and a bottle of overtly expensive champagne; well for us geeks at least. A few geek couples leapt way ahead and brought their childhood geeky wedding fantasies to life with cakes and proposals only a geek can think of.
