Barbie Millicent Roberts + Ken Carson
Saturday 16th May 2020
Mr + Mrs Roberts & Carson (she won't be taking Ken's last name... she's too iconic)
Family Home Backyard, Prestwick, Scotland
How did you and your husband meet?
We met in 1961 while filming a television commercial together. It was love at first sight. It was initially quite hard to be together as I (Barbie) was pursuing careers as a professional ballerina, a flight attendant, a registered nurse and a singer; but we made it work. 
Tell us about your wedding theme...
We stuck to a classic theme, clean and simple. Black, white and gold appeared to be the signature colours of the big day. The bridesmaids dresses matched with the Bride, though the dress material varied, the bride tribe all had matching gold satin belts. 
Who was your bride and groom squad? 
My bridesmaids included my two sisters, Chelsea (flower girl), Skipper (junior bridesmaid) and my cousin Francie Fairchild. The groom squad included Ken's younger brother Tommy and his friend Allan Sherwood. 
What kind of ceremony did you have? 
Not exactly sure what Dr Evil (Douglas 'Dougie' Powers) comes under, but he was great, though a little odd. When we read our vows he did ask if we were absolutely sure even if we were offered 'One billion dollars' while laughing hysterically. 
First Dance Song: 
'I've had the time of my life'- Bill Medley. It just made sense to us. We have been through so much together over the last 59 years. So many career changes, countries, houses, family members; we've done it all together. We really have had the time of our lives.
Barbie + Ken's Music
  • First dance: 'I've Had the Time of My Life'- Bill Medley
  • Song you walked down the aisle to: 'At Last'- Etta James
  • Song you walked back up the aisle to as a married couple: 'Barbie Girl'- Aqua 
Funniest wedding photograph: 
The funniest photographs have to be the three part series as I threw the bridal bouquet. I was so taken aback by how eagerly all of my friends wanted the bouquet. 
Favourite wedding supplier: 
Had to be our photographer Tink&Lulu Photography. She was so helpful in assisting with every element of the big day. From the dress making, to seating plan and decor design. 
What was your Wedding Budget – and did you stick to it? 
When you're Barbie and Ken, budget doesn't exist. This wedding was nearly 60 years in the making; we're only doing it once and we were doing it right, no expense spared. 
What did you do for your hen do? 
The girls and I spent a few days at the Malibu beach house and danced and partied. Nothing crazy. 
Favourite celebrity wedding: 
It has to be the insatiable Cher and Sonny Bono's wedding. We have always been huge fans of Cher. 
Tell us about your Honeymoon...
Yet to go on our honeymoon due to travel restrictions, but you can bet it's going to be beach, sun and sand.
