An Outlander Wedding

Outlander Episode #107 THE WEDDING is this SATURDAY, as if you didn’t know. We’ve had lots to keep us occupied while we count down the minutes. People magazine released exclusive photos of the lovely Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp (Randall) Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and her dashing husband, James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan) in the honeymoon suite.

I increased the resolution and adjusted the lighting a bit to bring out the details of Claire’s corset in Terry Dresbach‘s gorgeous design, so have a look-see. Earlier this week, she also posted images and an early sketch of Claire’s wedding dress on her blog: An Eighteenth Century Life.

And for those of you who can’t get enough of Ms. Dresbach’s costumes, she has a new discussion forum active where you can post comments and ask questions about each episode and the costumes for each character. THE WEDDING will most likely be the hot topic this weekend, so have at it.

Most of you are probably familiar with my collection of Outlander posters. If not, you can view them all here in full resolution. I update them with new footage as it’s released. As this is a post about the wedding, I thought I’d include the corresponding poster for Ep107. The image in the middle is of my own creative imagination.

And finally, Outlander Starz put out a call for Wedding Invitations. Below is my submission. It includes a sonnet with a variation of one of my favorite lines of all the series because it’s a sentiment Diana Gabaldon‘s husband expressed to her. Sigh. From the last line of The Fiery Cross:

“When the day shall come that we do part,” he said softly, and turned to look at me, “if my last words are not ‘I love you’ – ye’ll ken it was because I didna have time.”

  1. This is gorgeous!! I LOVE the photos and how you enhanced the poster. Your invitation is so beautifully worded and created. How Blessed we would be to share in such a great love! The millions of us doing it vicariously began the journey so many years ago with Diana’s growing series.
    But I love your blog and Terry’s creations are incredible.
    I would love to see your collection of posters individually, they are so striking on your cover.

    1. Thank you so much. I include a link above THE WEDDING poster. They can also be accessed thru the far left menu option at the top of my page: O/L Posters.

      I can’t wait to update the poster for Ep108 this weekend once we FINALLY get the trailer & stills. I had to scrape that one together. lol

  2. Hi, Candida–I can’t find an email address for you, but I’d like to chat with you privately regarding a question I have about something you mentioned in your post here (regarding the wedding in Outlander). I sent a message to what I _think_ is your FaceBook page, which I assume will show up in your “other” folder. If you could get in touch with me I would really appreciate it. (If my email is not visible to you privately, you can get in touch through my (business) FaceBook page: http://www.facebook.com/Calligraphics1 ) Thanks very much! –Cheryl
