Subtly Halloween Inspired Rooftop Shoot

Halloween is just a few weeks away so what could be a more perfect shoot to share today than this one? Inspired by Memphis (where the session took place), Halloween and autumn, the nods to the season are subtle, but effective. I’m not a massive fan of really over the top, themed Halloween shoots so this one is right up my street. In fact if I was having a Halloween wedding this is exactly how I’d style it!

“The inspiration of this styled wedding shoot was HALLOWEEN”, photographer Ashley wrote. “Kelsey (Connor and Co.) and I wanted to do a bad ass alternative bride shoot and decided it should be Halloween and it was appropriate for the time of year. We took classy and elegant and brought it to a whole new level.”

A Jewellery Making Party with Tatty Devine!

I have been a massive fan of Tatty Devine ever since I discovered them as a teenager. I dreamed of one day being able to adorn myself daily with all their pretty plastic creations. That love affair has continued well into adulthood and the Tatty pieces I own will forever be some of my ultimate faves.

So when the babes at Tatty Devine got in contact to ask if I wanted to visit their Brick Lane store to do a Halloween themed jewellery making workshop it felt like all my Christmasses (or should that be Halloweens?) had come at once.

On Tuesday evening Sophie, Ronnie, Lisa, Paige and I excited arrived at their shop just as it was closing for our private party. We were all sat around a table and instead of normal place settings there was a custom spooky glittery name necklace in each spot. I may have audibly squealed.

Ronnie even got TWO because they weren’t sure if she’d prefer Ronnie or Veronica.. and she got to keep them both! Jealous much? I should have casually mentioned in advance that I also go by the name of Kathryn… and Rock n Roll Bride… and Princess of the Manor…

Vampire Vow Renewal at Dracula’s Castle, Transylvania

Halloween may be a month away, but that isn’t stopping everyone getting VERY excited for it. I think I’ve witnessed more pre-Halloween excitement than ever this year. So I thought I’d add fuel to the fire by sharing Daley and Logan’s Transylvanian ceremony with you today!

Those eagle-eyed among you may recognise this pair from their EPIC vampire royalty wedding which we featured in May. However not be satisfied with pulling off one of the most popular (and expensive!) weddings we’ve ever published, the pair also wanted to confirm their marriage with a second ceremony in Romania. And what could be more fitting for a gothic, vampire and all-things-spooky loving couple than Dracula’s castle in Transylvania!?

“Before we got married we had decided we wanted to start a tradition of renewing our vows every year somewhere different around the world”, Daley said. “So that by the time we had grown old together, we would have vowed our love to each other all over the world. What better place to start then on our vampire honeymoon in Transylvania? Our travel agency was kind enough to set the whole thing up for us. Our tour guide even brought champagne with him for a toast.”

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!”
