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!”

Intimate Halloween Wedding with 30 Guests

Family focused gothic elopement (27)

There’s something all together extra lovely about the simple, love-filled weddings… The ones without lots of extra details like centrepieces, cakes and fancy receptions… The ones where the couple just really want to get married and so do it on their own terms. So when I saw Jon and Jess’ intimate wedding, which was held at their friend’s house with minimal money spent, I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

“We had a small wedding with maybe about 30 people, just our parents, siblings and some family”, began Jess. “I also made the food for dinner, so we didn’t have it catered. I wore a black wedding dress from shein.com.”

Handmade ‘Wedding Market’ in Switzerland

Matrimonio a Brissago Centro Danneman

Monica and Andrea were married in Switzerland in March. They wanted a handmade wedding that was small and intimate. “We are both handmade lovers, we love to create stuff and to collect furniture and ancient objects”, said the bride. “We wanted that day would reflect as much as possible our essence.”

“We are both enthusiasts of traditional markets and so our wedding was like a ‘wedding market’. There was something unique around every corner for us to share with our family and friends. Almost everything was homemade including the tables, we also collected mismatched vintage chairs, ladders, boxes and furniture. We built the lemonade stand and the photo booth too. We recovered, stored, sanded, painted, arranged, cut, screwed lots and lots of ancient wooden furniture – one big central table, old hanging stairs, from which hung bulbs and bottles filled with flowers.”

“Our wedding was a culmination of everything we love”, said the bride. “Music, fashion, classic cars, dancing, tattoos, comfort food and big parties… We threw in everything! I would say our theme was a 1950s vintage rockabilly and DIY extravaganza! Everyone said this was the most DIY’ed wedding they had ever seen, as well as the only rockabilly wedding they had ever experienced.”

Whitstable Beach Wedding Planned in Eight Weeks

Whitstable Beach Wedding Planned in Eight Weeks (58)

Rosie and Alex were married in Kent in October. They did things on a budget, spending no more than £5000, and planned it all in eight weeks!

Initially they weren’t even sure if they wanted a wedding, but after speaking to a photographer at another wedding, the bride changed her mind. “I said to the photographer that I wasn’t even sure I wanted to get married”, she explained. “He replied ‘I know it’s a cliche but it really is the best day ever. Everyone you like is in one place, looking great, having fun and wanting to hang out with you.’ That was really what inspired us to actually go through with it. It just seemed like such fun. We tried to keep that in mind with all our choices; it had to be fun for our guests and for us.”

They didn’t intentionally have a theme but there were nods to some of their favourite films dotted throughout the day. “Our tables were named after characters from movies, I walked down the aisle to You’re So Cool by Hans Zimmer and we skipped the first dance and had a mass twist competition (a la Pulp Fiction). I wasn’t interested in getting everything to match and I’m not naturally a ‘planner’ so the prospect of a theme that I‘d have to stick to just scared the crap out of me.”

“Our ceremony was non-religious and light-hearted”, began the bride. “We wanted a ceremony that celebrated friendship and love and commitment. We had some mishaps with the candle lighting but we ran with it and wouldn’t change a thing.”
