Set The Scene…
We personally think an abandoned warehouse or a transformed industrial space is the perfect location to house your seasonal wedding theme.
The blank canvas location will lend itself wonderfully to a Halloween-inspired event, particularly if it features exposed brick walls, tall beams and original rustic features.
Create a Gothic atmosphere by adding a mixture of muted hues, candles and black features to your tablescapes and wedding decor. Chandeliers will add opulence, whilst Festoon lighting will create a warming atmosphere on a chilly, Autumnal eve.

Halloween-inspired gowns aren’t seen very frequently, which makes them a beautifully unique choice for your aisle style. Think bridal separates teamed with a black lace veil to add to the Gothic feel to your day, and is the perfect choice for a fashion-forward bride who isn’t afraid to dress outside the norm.
Alternatively, we adore this chic little number below, by dress designer Pronovias.
Give your guests a clue about your unusual wedding theme by designing your invitations with a dark coloured palette in mind. Golden calligraphy looks stunning against the contrast of a dark background, and it’ll help add a touch of glamour to your stationery.
A wedding bouquet consisting of Autumnal colours will look truly extraordinary. Discuss with your florist about which flowers are in season. Black dahlias and chocolate cosmos teamed with dark purple tulips will create a seriously stunning bouquet. If you are donning a traditional white wedding gown, your bouquet will be a subtle nod towards your Gothic wedding theme. Although it can be quite a tricky theme to create, do it the right way and it’s oh-so chic.

Coolest Wedding Cake
Looking for a wedding cake that is contemporary and unique? Then opt for a chic metallic or dark coloured design that will wow your guests. The striking colour looks magnificent adorned with burgundy blooms or gold geometric icing.
