Dark Forest Wedding at Bovey Castle

Becca & Adam's wedding at Bovey Castle_Helen Lisk Photography -538

Becca and Adam met at a Fear Factory gig in 2006. For the wedding, they decided to combine elements of their shared passions including food, travel, nature and music. The reception was decorated with a dark forest theme.

“Our day included an owl ring bearer, a string trio covering Rammstein, ferret racing, two bands and a fire performance!” said Becca. “We were really surprised about how many people danced to Metalhead, our band. We’d chosen an especially heavy set list (for the uninitiated) including Pantera!”

“We opted for a civil ceremony in the hotel’s cathedral room. We wrote our own vows and had three readings including one about dinosaurs! It was a really emotional moment for both of us and we were happy we could share it with the people who matter to us.”

The bride wore two stunning dresses. The first was by Ian Stuart, and the second was a black corset and skirt from Elysian Couture. “The venue was our biggest expense and after that it was my dresses!” she said. “I found my evening outfit via blog post on Rock n Roll Bride!

“The thing we wish we’d know before we started planning was just how much everything costs. We originally budgeted £20k but ended up spending just over £30k! However it was all worth it and although we spent more than we originally intended, there isn’t anything that we regret. The day was better than we envisaged and seeing it all come together so wonderfully as well as our friends and family genuinely enjoying the day was amazing.”
