Voice Actor Junichi Miyake & Artist Aoi Nishimata's Fairy Tale Wedding at Tokyo Disneyland

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Voice actor Jun'ichi Miyake and illustrator Aoi Nishimata announced last month that they were getting married at the Cinderella Castle in Tokyo Disneyland on May 5 (Children's Day in Japan). When the ceremony took place, of course people took pictures of the happy occasion, which they shared on Twitter on the hashtag "#西又葵・三宅淳一結婚式" (Aoi Nishimata, Jun'ichi Miyake Wedding Ceremony).

Here are some of the pictures people have been sharing:

Aoi Nishimata posted this one from her Twitter account:

"Ah! The wind was so strong the veil was fluttering about, and I stepped in my skirt. ( °_° ) But it was a fun ceremony 。*゚\(。•ω•。)/゚*。 Thanks everyone! Now on to the reception! ☆。.:*・゜Looking forward to it!"

From fellow illustrator Noizi Ito's (of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya fame) Twitter account:

"There are a lot of people here in Disneyland that are wishing these two the best. (*^_^*) She's definitely the main character with that pose!"

Looks like it was a blast! If you were there on that day, maybe you can share your experience in the comments as well!

Miyake and Nishimata will still continue working in their respective fields.

Nishimata is printing a "wedding photo & essay book" titled Nishimata Aoi ga Dansei Seiyū to no Kekkon o Kimeta Riyū (Why Aoi Nishimata Decided to Marry a Voice Actor) on June 24.

Miyake is possibly best known for his role as Keno in the Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East television anime and its sequel. He also has played the role of Guo Jia in KOEI Tecmo Games' Dynasty Warriors series since Dynasty Warriors 7 Xtreme Legends, where his character joined the playable roster. Nishimata, an illustrator and former cosplayer, currently works at visual novel company Navel and has provided art for such games as Lovedol ~Lovely Idol~, Shuffle!, Final Approach, and Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai, all of which were later adapted into anime. Miyake played the role of Sakuya in the Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai game and anime.

Most recently, Nishimura provided the character design for 500 in the Shanago Collection smartphone game. Apart from illustrating, Nishimata also writes lyrics.
