Ethereal, Dark and Romantic Wedding in Prague

Hannah and Ben’s wedding was inspired by fairy tales, Halloween and Bram Stokers Dracula! Their day was ethereal dark and romantic, with little touches of macabre beauty. “My veil had tiny gold bats embroidered onto it and there were gold spiders on the flower girls bags,” began Hannah. “Later in the day we went on a vintage tram ride with accordion players followed by a boat ride with a saxophonist. We didn’t tell our guests beforehand so it was a nice surprise for everyone.”

Their ceremony was held at baroque palace in Prague and was their favourite part of the day. “I walked down the aisle to rather dark romantic cellist music and we wrote our own vows which included Ben saying to me ‘I promise as your husband to make every day Halloween’ and I to him ‘I promise to keep your glass full of whiskey and your heart full of joy’.

We wanted people to walk in and immediately say ‘This is definitely Logan and Daley’.”

“We wanted a very unique wedding with some surprisingly traditional aspects. Logan wore custom armour (crafted after the armour from Dracula Untold), with his fangs and green contacts. We also had a dragon cake with a replica of Dracula’s Castle, a crowning ceremony, and more red lighting and flowers than you could shake a stick at!”
