Since the idyllic scenes the gentleman wanted to emulate are actually from a film (surely the inspiration didn't come from the book or they wouldn't have done what they did, the book is specifically against that), why not stage the wedding at a film studio? For the kind of budget he spent he could have had it made into an day-long film of Lorien, Lorien, Lorien, not just a few minutes like in the film. The sets would have been professionally built, you could have gotten the illusion (afterwards) of having actually climbed up those trees, and met elves and Hobbits and Aragorn, loads of special effects could have been added in. After all, he was only trying to create an illusion in the first place, with fake costumes, fake bridges and walls, fake behaviour, fake and contrived everything. So why not just go the whole whack, and make this a massive, professionally stage-managed illusion, the film of which would give him and his wife hours and hours of delight afterwards?
