'Til Death do us Party Wedding Ideas (43)

If you like things a bit more dark ‘n moody than the usual bridal fare, then you’re going to love this wedding shoot!

Put together by Him and Her Events from Queensland, it features a black wedding cake, a deer skull above the ceremony arch and the coolest models ever! This is definitely not one for traditional brides.

“The theme of this shoot was ‘tll death do us party and sophisticated grunge”, they explained. “We wanted to embrace the rawness of the venue and create a style that inspired couples to make their own rules when it comes to their wedding day. We wanted to create a moody feel whilst still embracing bursts of colour and featuring cow skulls consistently throughout our styling.”

“Our shoot took place at The Brightside in Fortitude Valley, Queensland. Not only will The Brightside be host to plenty of rad couples tying the knot, but it is also an incredible live music venue which unfortunately are lacking in Brisbane. It has a long history in Brisbane and hopefully this shoot will help others see what an amazing local venue it really is.”

“The entire aim of this shoot was to encapsulate having no rules when it comes to your big day”, they concluded. “Although we chose a rad venue with natural grittiness, fun cocktails and fried chicken, we still wanted to style our space with a sense of luxury and romance.”

“This was the ultimate small wedding where couples can afford to go the extra mile with their styling but still keep all the things that are special to them like live music, OTT florals and the perfect mini skulls for their place settings.”



  1. When I saw this post title, I KNEW it would be from the mind of Kat Forsyth! 😉
    Everything you’ve said about ‘novelty themed’ wedding ideas – the worst thing (personal opinion) could be that it turns out like a costume party – unless you like that kind of thing of course!
    I must admit, I not a Dr. Who fan (eeek), but very much enjoy these details The action shots are fab Kat, and the venue perfect!
    The details are fun, and recognisable as Dr. Who, but not way OTT that guests will feel alienated, like they’re not part of the fun! (if they’re not Dr. Who-ligans. – I made that up just now!! Have I coined that? if so . . yay me! 😉

  2. It’s “Whovians”, Charlotte! Haha. 🙂 (Maybe Who-ligans can be the crazy insane fans, who go crazy at conventions and smash stuff).

    Thank you for the lovely words. And thanks to Kat for featuring it! I loved doing it. I’m up for a REAL Dr Who wedding now….anyone? ….Bueller?

  3. Love the attention to detail in this one, the jammie dodgers and fish fingers with custard are a nice touch!

    We had little Tardis favour bags with jelly babies in them at our wedding, and the vicar wrote her sermon around why marriage is like the Tardis. Later, we were given a Tardis teapot like the one in the photo as a present. 🙂

  4. Kat! This is awesome! I know you must have had a total blast doing it because it combines the things you love! NICE JOB! 😀

    If I show this to my boyfriend he’ll probably propose before the end of the day!

    Best shoot ever!

    I am so pleased that we were able to create such a positive response, it was a labour of love so it means a lot. Thank you so much Kat for sharing our work, I am over the moon. Hooray for work and fun being the same thing!

    Don’t know much about Dr. Who, but I love your shoot! So quirky and different. I am a proud Mum. You excel!

    Did I miss something? No one caught the names Ian and Barbara.. or was that just foregone conclusion?

  9. Lee Ferrier

    I’m glad someone caught on, Joe. Naming the characters Ian & Barbara was a direct reference to the original companions with The Doctor & Susan!

  10. THOSE SHOES are perfection! I love the running shot
    but I hate how photos always do that groom looking at camera, bride looking at groom shot haha
    now if only I can persuade my boyfriend…

  11. Totally late reply to this comment, Jessalyn, but I bought the teapot from the “Forbidden Planet” shop in London! You could probably get it online.
