Dark, Luxe & Romantic Wedding on October 31st

Ashleigh’s love of all things witchy and gothic, combined with Scott’s obsession with horror movies led this pair down the path of hosting a dark and moody, offbeat October 2020 wedding day. The bride told us – “we joke about having a love like Gomez and Morticia, and the phrase ’til death do us part’ also shaped our wedding planning and became the slogan of our wedding.”

Held at Yallingup Country Homestead in Western Australia, the typical white wedding couldn’t have been further from what they were looking for. “We wanted wild and memorable,” Ashleigh continued,”a wedding that would have our guests’ walk away saying how ‘us’ the wedding was an would be an epic statement.” Their vision was brought to life in the floral styling Lara Rose Botanical Stylist, the bride’s own collection of decor items such as skulls, candlesticks and rugs with Hire in Style filling in the gaps.

From encouraging guests to dress in their best ‘funeral attire’ to Ellen wearing a black lace Maggie Sottero gown, almost everything about their wedding was included a unique, personalised touch. Their day was held at one of the most haunted locations in New Orleans –  Beauregard Keyes House. The couple and their guests travelled from Memphis for their day, so their focus was on making sure everyone had a great time – “we were asking people to travel a significant distance to celebrate with us, so we wanted to make sure the celebration was worth it!”
