Autumnal ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ Themed Wedding

Morgan and Stu both love autumn so they knew they wanted to incorporate autumnal colours and flowers in their wedding. Morgan also LOVES Halloween so they decided their theme should be ‘ Til Death Do Us Part’.

“I LOVE HALLOWEEN!” began Morgan, “What makes Stu such a special person is that, yes he does like Halloween, but he knows how much I love it and he lets me go with it! He didn’t want our wedding decor to be too Halloween party with blood and guts but just to stick true to the ‘Til Death’ theme.”

“We just tried to make everything about us. As selfish as that might sound, we wanted to celebrate us publicly (and legally) joining our lives forever. We didn’t try to think about if something was considered traditional or alternative. We felt pretty strongly that we would not be married in a church by a priest or pastor because neither one of us is religious. We picked our own readings for the ceremony, our own ‘I do’s’ (which came from a line from the movie, Moulin Rouge) and our own vows. Despite my feminist views, my dad walked me down the aisle but it was more about having him a part of our day. My wedding dress was mostly black and my ring is a black pearl with two skulls on either side. Oh and I had a Man of Honour instead of a Maid of Honour!”

Insanely Colourful & Macabre Fiesta Wedding

There are so many things to be obsessed with in Britani and Matt’s wedding. The bride’s black dress/ rainbow petticoat combo, the Dia de los Muertos masks, the mixed gender bridal parties, the colourful wedding cake and flowers and ALL THAT AMAZING DECOR. It’s enough to make even the most hardened of us well up and get really over excited all at the same time.

The Denver natives wanted a wedding that was colourful, fun and a little bit dark. “Our theme was ‘Rainbow Vintage Macabre Fiesta'”, explained the bride. “My dress started it all but also we both both really like macabre things, Halloween and skulls but I also absolutely adore vibrant colours”

Bohemian Cactus Farm Wedding in Palm Springs

Courtney and Sanford met at work ten years ago when Sanford came in to cover a shift. They were both wearing the same black women’s jeans and spent the whole time shamelessly flirting and laughing together. During their decade long romance they lived in different places (him in Arizona and her in Southern California) so would often meet up halfway in Palm Springs. When they came to planning their wedding they knew it had to happen there. Their theme was a groovy Palm Springs, classic rock, boho and Halloween mash up!

They had a budget of $14,000. “We definitely had a vision from the start,” began Courtney. “It’s challenging working with a tight budget in Southern California but we both have an eye for good design and details, and with that we were able to be really creative and resourceful! More than anything we wanted it to be warm, fun and very us!”

Spooky Cemetery Themed Wedding on Halloween

As soon as they got engaged, Morgan and Sam decided that a Halloween wedding would be their absolute dream. They wanted to include the dark horror side and also the warm coloured, Autumnal side of Halloween. The wedding was held at Reynoldston Village Hall on October 31st.

The day began with an intimate, humanist ceremony. “Neither of us are religious and it was really important that we had a simple yet meaningful ceremony, with a dash of humour thrown in”, began the bride. “We wanted to trim out all of the fluff, so no songs or readings – just the two of us declaring our love for one another.”

“My mum walked me down the aisle to a song that Sam and I call ours, Tears for Fears, Head Over Heels. We wanted our vows to be unique to us and reflect the way we love each other, so we wrote them. We both cried the whole way through. We exchanged rings but incorporated the Pagan tradition of handfasting. It was really nice to include an old ritual and I spent quite a while studying the meaning behind each colour of ribbon and assigning it to who I thought that best represented.”

Creepy Gothic Wedding

Creepy Gothic Wedding (37)

The inspiration for Laura and Martyn’s wedding came from their mutual love of tattoos, skulls, Halloween, metal and rock music, and Tim Burton. They wanted their wedding to be modern, but also gothic and romantic with creepy aspects!

“We have always liked creepy things so for our wedding we wanted to take something creepy and turn it into something beautiful,” explained Laura. “We searched through Pinterest for inspiration but we could never see anything that we really liked. We found it hard at first because kept worrying about what other people would think, rather than focusing on it being our wedding. We were worried people would think it was horrible and find it too creepy if we had skulls everywhere.”

“We had a lot of dark colours rather than the traditional white or ivory which a lot of people stick to. My make up was quite bold too. We also didn’t have any speeches as we really didn’t want to put any stress on my dad and Martyn who don’t like public speaking. Our aim from the beginning was to just get married, eat, drink and party! We sure did we party… until 3:30am!”

Non-Traditional Halloween & Biker Wedding

Non-Traditional Halloween & Biker Wedding (43)

Pip and Alex have always loved Halloween. Their little girl (who they call ‘mouse’) was even born on Halloween! They were married on 14th November and wanted their wedding to be a nod to their favourite time of year. They also wanted it to be non-traditional, and their theme was a cross between Morticia Addams and Cher! They saved for their wedding for over two years and bought what they could, when they could buy it.

“My wedding dress was black, Alex wore a black suit and converse, and our décor was based on my pink hair colour and skulls!” said the bride. “We are both bikers so we also had nods to our passion throughout the whole wedding with MotoGP rider table numbers, gears on our cake and helmets by our guestbook.”
