Elegant Tim Burton Inspired Wedding Inspiration

Burton-esque_Plum_Wedding_Photography Smiths035

Starting with rich in shades of plum alongside black and gold, The Photography Smiths and stylist Anthomanic, created some regal wedding inspiration with an edge of Tim Burton. The dramatic and quirky set design included odd shaped vintage furniture, lace wedding dresses with dramatic mermaid silhouettes, black & white stripes, mini top hats and milk & cookies as favours.

The milk bottles were sprayed gold and wrapped in pieces of lace and ribbon, and the bouquet was accented with plums.

Tim Burton is a popular starting point for Rock n Roll Brides but I love how this shoot shows the idea with a more regal and elegant look. What do we think? The perfect twist for a gothic wedding maybe?

Thank you to The Photography Smiths and Anthomanic for sharing with us today.



  1. A color combination that surprisingly I like it too- I always thought intense colors don’t work together but black and purple state positively. And a colored touch for the dress too is more than a fancy style.

    Oh, finally. Something a bit dark. I do love light, fluffy weddings but they can verge in the sickly sweet. Well done with this one.

  3. Wow, I love this! That deep rich purple is fab, and I love the plums in the bouquet. And of course any wedding with milk and oreos as favours would be a win in my book! x

    Thank you so much Kat and great timing posting this. I tried to start talking decoration two days ago and couldn’t find any examples of what I was thinking to show my fella. (He’s very visual) I may have pinned everything on this page.

    Oh I love this so much! Although its a beautiful dress and suits that lady perfectly I think I would choose a different one for my body shape, but I would keep everything else just how it is!! Honestly this is perfect in every way!
