Cool, Modern, Gothic Themed Wedding with Feminist Touches

Lucy and Ross were inspired by their weird and wonderful shared interests and lives together for their dark and romantic October 2019 wedding. The bride told us; ”I collect medical samples, so we made our dessert table a cabinet of curiosities. We put quotes from our favourite books and TV shows on the invites and into the the ceremony. Our tables names were out favourite art galleries and museums in London, and our guests were transported between venues on black London buses complete with cheesy ghost tour actors.”

“I know most people say it, but the theme was quintessentially, ‘us’. We had a lot of fun with putting our own stamp on things. At one point, Ross was looking at tie colour inspiration in the strangest places: he found a picture of a headless Medusa by Caravaggio and loved the combination of colours, and broke down its palette for tie colours, but in the end, he went with… black.”

Gothic yet Girly Wedding Inspiration

There’s a bit of a misconception in the wedding world that brides who want to wear black want to go all-out goth with their wedding theme too… but what if you wanted to combine your love of pretty florals with a penchant for a darker ensemble? Where exactly can you look for inspo?

Enter stage left, this beautiful editorial which was spontaneously put together by a group of UK-based wedding suppliers, led by photographer Ioana Porav. She explains, “My inspiration for the shoot was just to be very spontaneous! I had all the elements in my studio and literally overnight I called the model and I said to just create some fresh content and inspiration. Usually we work with a mood board or inspiration but this time was different.”

Metal Music Lovers’ Italian Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress & A First Dance to Rammstein

When you picture an Italian wedding, you might be forgiven for thinking it would be super traditional and definitely in a church, but when the couple in question met at one of Italy’s biggest metal music festivals, their wedding was definitely going to go down a little differently. Erica and Antonio chose to tie the knot at Cà del Facco, a farm meets holiday home in the Lombardy countryside where they brought their relaxed, romantic wedding (that still felt totally ‘them’) to life.

One of the most unique elements about the day was that the bride chose to wear black in the form of a black lace and layered tulle gown from Clara Couture and she paired it with a matching black veil. The groom wore a deep blue damask suit with a walking stick and a top hat!

Gothic Vegas Wedding with Some Traditional Elements

Choosing October for their wedding was the perfect season for McKenzie and Cory who planned a Nightmare Before Christmas meets gothic wedding. They booked The Artisan Hotel in Vegas as their venue and the fact that it was decorated in an eclectically gothic style already, made it a choice they were happy they made.

“We called our wedding theme gothic chic”, began McKenzie. “Our ceremony actually took place out front of the building under all the lit up trees. From the start we knew we didn’t want to have a traditional wedding where everyone had assigned seating and they would have to sit through a bunch of traditional things. We just wanted a ceremony, then a huge party and we got exactly that!”

Covid-19 Protest Meets Rock Concert Wedding in Israel

Alva met Shay while she was living in Amsterdam and he had travelled over from Israel for the Amsterdam Tattoo convention. Although they lived in different countries, they kept in touch afterwards and became great friends. A few months later Alva moved to Isreal to be with him and start their lives together. Four years later they had their first child, Neo, and six years after they met they were married.

Being an unconventional couple, having a wedding with any form of tradition was never on the cards. Their outfits were Victorian meets gothic inspired, as this is how they dress on the daily.

Alva’s dress came from a gothic shop in Amsterdam (she bought it four years before and kept it because she knew it would be her dream wedding dress as soon as she saw it!) and she wore it with shoes from Dolls Kill. Shay’s jacket was from the same store and his boots were New Rock.
