Witchy Old Hollywood Wedding on Taco ‘Twos-day’

Even before they were engaged, Teegan and James had an idea that Tuesday the 22nd February 2022 (22/02/22 or 02/22/2022 for our US friends!) would be a fun date to get married. Teegan explained,

“I saw a post on the internet about how February 22nd falls on a Tuesday in 2022. We weren’t even engaged at that point, but I shared it with James and said “It’s the ultimate ‘twosday’, wouldn’t that be a great date to get married on?” A couple months later, James proposed and we agreed that of course we would be getting married on not only the ultimate twosday, but that it would be the ultimate TACO Twosday and we would serve tacos and share with our guests a tequila toast during the reception!”

Falling in love with the architecture of the Anthony Chapel at Garven Woodland Gardens in Arkansas, the couple designed their day around it. They curated the theme of the wedding around the woods and gardens that surround the chapel. “I wanted a touch of vintage flair” Teegan said, “along with deep, saturated natural tones to complement the beauty of the architecture.”

Dark & Moody Gothic Soiree with Witchy Celestial Details

With a rumour circulating amongst friends that they tried to get married at a morgue, in reality Taylor and Kaylen settled for a beautiful outdoor wedding at Ritchie Hill in Concord, North Carolina. Incorporating their dark and moody theme was important to them, with astrological elements and a black and deep-toned colour palette.

“We wanted to incorporate our love for all things witchy and magic, so we numbered our tables by tarot cards, and our escort cards were arranged by astrological sign”, they told us. “All the escort cards also had a horoscope on the back for each guest.” The favours also fit the theme perfectly. As a ceramic artist, Taylor designed and made over 100 black porcelain ceramic bottles for their guests and to complement the décor.

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.

A Forest Witch Elopement with a Black Wedding Dress

Originally budgeting $5,000 for their June wedding, as they had to change their plans due to the pandemic, Sayer and Philip actually only ended up spending $2,000! They were inspired by nature and the most important part for them was the ceremony. It was held at Big Bear National Forest in California and they hired their friend of seven years, Priestess Shannon Farley-Schonland, to officiate.

“We bonded over witchcraft, the Haunted Mansion and the Night Circus”, Sayer told us. “I decided long ago, well before I ever knew I would meet Philip, that Shannon would be the person to perform my handfasting and marriage ceremony.”

Witchy Wedding with Plants, Crystals and Bridesmaid’s Carrying Sage Bundles

Lauren, who is a witch, always wanted a repeating number wedding date so when she married Alex and 22nd February 2020 was an option, she jumped at the chance! They were married at Skylight, an event’s space in Denver and were inspired by Lauren’s passion for witchcraft as well as plants and crystals for the theme of the day.

“We are not traditional people”, Lauren began. “I knew as soon as we got engaged that I didn’t want to be a traditional bride – I knew my hair would be purple (my natural colour!), my dress wouldn’t be white and that we would have all our favourite music involved.”

Witchy Late Summer New Moon Wedding

Amber and Daniel had a September wedding inspired by the New Moon. “We had a New Moon wedding”, Amber said. “Originally we couldn’t nail down a date. I am really into the New Moon and the beginnings it brings and I kept being drawn to 9/9/2018, which happened to be the New Moon into Virgo (Dan’s astrological sign). Once we chose it, Dan’s parents told us that was his grandmother and grandfather’s wedding date! It was meant to be!”

Most of the decor came from their own home and they used their creativity on the wedding invitations. The bride even sourced vintage mineral and crystal stamps for them. “The theme was a little dramatic and a little bit boho. I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted – slightly moody, but still carefree. For the invitations we used the limited edition eclipse stamps.

Cool, Intimate Garden Wedding… with Dark Witchy Vibes!

Yuta and Artyom met when Artyom was tattooed at the studio Yuta works out of. A few sessions under the needle later, they started talking and, as they say, one thing led to another and the rest is history!

They were married in an intimate garden ceremony at Cultura, Tel Aviv, with a reception for close family and friends in the beautiful yard straight after. Their ceremony was performed by Yuta’s good friend and mentor, and continued with a song from another friend that she’d written especially for the couple in Hebrew!

The wooden deck and foliage walls contrasting with the open Tel Aviv skyline made for an personal yet urban setting that really captured the atmosphere the couple wanted from their big day.

Most of their guests were young tattooed people, many working as tattoo artists themselves, so their wedding party looked especially cool. In fact their favourite part of their day was letting loose after the formalities and dancing with their friends. “After the responsibilities of the evening had passed, we were just surrounded by people who loved us and had come to celebrate our love,” explained Yuta. “It was such a great feeling.”
