If you want a wedding that’s more Elvira than Bewitched, this one’s for you. From tarot card tableware to gold painted chocolate bird skull favours, use these moodboards to help you create your ultimate luxury gothic wedding; then dust it with a little bit of your own black magic.
Rustic branches interwoven with earthy moss and crimson petals look gorgeous as a centrepiece and sit well beside these easy DIY upturned glasses with lace trimmed candles. Glittered red riding hood toffee apples are great for a trick or treat sweets table or as wedding favours.
A wispy linen table runner and macaroons sprinkled with edible glitter are simple but incredibly effective. For lesbian brides, up the luxe with a gorgeous brooch bouquet which you can buy pre-made or bespoke.
Purple has long been associated with the Goth look, but it doesn’t have to mean 14-eyelet Vonda DMs and heavy piercings. Perhaps you’d like to give a sophisticated nod to the stereotype instead? We love this watercolour dress, gilt-style wedding stationery and blackberry drip-iced wedding cake.
If you’re contemplating dressing head to toe in black or wearing a tux be sure it stands out from conventional suits by incorporating some Gothic-style patterns. Or go glam squad goth with black lipstick, heavy eyeliner and a killer black swan feather shrug.
Gold may not be traditionally Gothic, but when contrasted against black it adds an undeniable layer of baroque luxury. Incorporate it into your colour scheme through lighting, table decor and gold-painted chocolate bird skull wedding favours.
Use monochromatic colour schemes to create ethereal Gothic style. We adore this gown by Halfpenny London, peeptoe shoes from the Couture Company, and elaborate lace-iced wedding cake.
