Black & White Tim Burton-esque Wedding with Pops of Colour

Sophie and Michael’s love of Tim Burton movies, particularly, Nightmare Before Christmas, inspired their November wedding. They were influenced by the aesthetics of Halloween Town, which is dark and creepy but has pops of colour. The bride had a black and white striped dress made for her by Rosie Red Corsetry & Couture which she wore with an OGSquad crown. The decorations were all homemade and their handfasting ceremony, led by a friend, featured the vows from Corpse Bride.

The day took place at All at The Red Brick Barn in Essex and kicked off with the couple standing up on the stage for the ceremony. “The ceremony itself was quite calm, besides a little mix up with music, as we had the legal part done last year”, Sophie explained.

Night of the Living Wed – A Halloween Wedding with a Middle School Dance Party Reception

Josh and Dre are two social media professionals living in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas. The pair met as many people do these days, online, but from the first time they met, it was clear that this was ‘the real thing’. Josh with his megawatt smile and Dre with her open-minded, free spirit made the pair an unstoppable duo. Just under six months from the day they met, Josh was ring shopping, eager to nail down his spirited and offbeat bride.

By all appearances, Dre considers herself a ‘normal gal’ but she has always been fascinated with the weird and the wonderful and of course, taking a few risks. When she initially brought around the idea of a Hallowedding, Josh jumped at the chance to create this truly authentic and special moment for the two of them. They had met near Halloween, got engaged near Halloween and now would be wed during the same season. “Some felt odd about the wedding choice, many embraced and celebrated us for doing something different,” Dre told us. “A wedding that would truly never be forgotten by anyone and thus #nightofthelivingwed was born!”

This wedding was announcing my pride in being different.” Erica met Kenny online over a decade ago, and he has supported her in her difference and choices 100% ever since. 

With a budget of $3,000, the couple pulled out all the stops to bring Erica’s spooky dreams to life. They covered their ceremony area in spider webs, spiders, bats, rats and fake bones. String lights and electric candles lined the aisle, and they made pool noodles to make three-tier candles, while a friend carved pumpkins. Erica knew she wanted to use items that they could take home so they could reuse them and they wouldn’t go to waste.
