Gothic wedding ideas
Dusty blue accents with shots of red and burgundy brings an elegant twist to your wedding colour scheme. We think it looks particularly striking for a winter or spring wedding.
Add hints to the undead with quirky favours, coffin shaped cookies or the iconic corpse bride vows.
THAT gothic dress!
If you want to go all out perhaps a replica dress takes your fancy. If you’re a fan of Rock N Roll Bride then you’ve probably heard of The Couture Company; they specialise in custom made, alternative, quirky and unique bridal wear like below.
Writer, curator and mortician Carla Valentine married at Arnos Vale Cemetery in October 2017. Carla and hubby, Johnny indulged in an epic wedding cake from Chocolate Delores complete with white chocolate skulls and an amazing ‘Until Death’ wedding topper.
The below cake was created by Annabel from the amazing Conjurer’s Kitchen we just love the attention to detail and delicate touches! It was used for our annual Life, Death and the Rest Festival but is perfect for a gothic inspired wedding cake.
Emily and Dan announced their vows at the Underwood Centre at Arnos Vale Cemetery. After the ceremony, they drank hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows around the fire. Blue and purple flowers lifted the black colour scheme and the twinkling fairy lights created a magical atmosphere perfect for a gothic wedding day!
