It’s a Gotham City wedding for two Nightwing and Batgirl fans


What happens when a Nightwing fan and a Batgirl devotee meet and fall in love? They have a Batman-themed wedding, naturally.

“This guy stopped to help me hang up a poster and three years later he proposed after jumping out of a plane,” user “babsgordon” writes on imgur. “Our relationship bonded over our superhero obsessions, so why not have a Batman wedding?”

This Dynamic Duo didn’t skimp on the details: As you can see from the photos here an on imgur, they wore Nightwing and Batgirl T-shirts in their engagement photos, sent invitations designed to look like tickets to Haly’s Circus, displayed a Gotham City cake, and the bride sported Bat-Signal earrings, custom-made garters, and even a utility belt (for her bridal shoot, at least)!

And the wedding party? Nightwing-blue for the groomsmen and groomswoman, and Batgirl-yellow for the bridesmaids and “bridesdudes” — complete with the appropriate insignia for the boutonnieres.






Very cool. Congrats.

That’s a very attractive pair of total dorkazoids. Looks like a fun wedding!

Awesome! Congratulations! Nice to see more people doing this! We did a superhero themed wedding last October. My husband costumed up as Green Lantern and I dressed as Star Sapphire (Fatality Version). All 80 of our guests had to dress as superheroes or villains that I chose for them. Lex Luthor officiated.


I am a total Babs/Dick fangirl so this is just incredibly awesome! Congrats to the happy couple!!

That is very awesome and romantic.
Now I wonder when there will be a Tim Drake (Red Robin) and Spoiler (Stephanie Brown) theme wedding :)

Problem is that after twenty years the wedding is retconned away and they have to do it over.

It’s like Lois and Clark; no corporate edict will ever take away an OTP like Dick/ Babs.
Unless it’s Dinah/ Babs or course!

A thousand congratulations to the happy couple! I speak from (grateful) experience when I say there’s no greater thing in the world than sharing your life with someone who also shares your geeky obsessions. My Wonder Woman/Batgirl/Power Girl/Zatanna/Black Canary/Black Widow/Rouge-adoring wife and I have been together six years, now, and each and ever day just gets better. All the best to you, guys!

Dude, your wife is awesome.

I’d do her.

Congratulations to the happy couple. May your days be pleasant in your civilian identities, and your nights be full of adventure in and out of costume!

That is awesome!

Thank you for posting about my wedding! It’s a great honor! You guys made this go viral overnigh!. Can you please update your images to the new ones with the photography credit on it? They’re on the same imgur link. My photographer was amazing and I want to make sure she gets proper credit. Dianne Personett Photography.

Awesome idea. Congrats to both of you.

@Darcy Robertson: You should get in touch with the CBR guys and share your pics. That sounds awesome.

As for this, it’s great to see love like this. I’m sure the parents were probably totally against the un-traditionality, but I’m glad they did it in a way they both would enjoy immensely. Also love the idea of Bridesdudes and Groomswomen. Totally using that at my wedding (once they let me marry in PA that is).

Wonderful, all the best for the future.

I wish to someday meet a girl this awesome, damn, congrats to them!

Very cool!!! Love the dress pic on top of the building.
