The bride wore Alex Perry, carried roses and arrived in a shiny black car – all pretty normal right? But this wedding is nothing like you are imagining! Ben & Gwynn tied the knot on 31 October in a quirky, slightly Gothic and truly fabulous Halloween themed wedding.
Funeral director Gwynn’s gown was dramatic black and accented with a rich red cloak. Her blood red roses were entwined in twisted willow and the groom was suited in armour.
If you believe in spirits there were thousands of guests in attendance as the ceremony was held in the largest graveyard in the Southern Hemisphere with over a million burials since its opening in the 1800’s. Those on the real guest list total only 50 so the day was intimate, personal and romantic.
The cake was adorned with red rose petals, dripping blood and a corpse bride and groom topper, the wedding car was a hearse and the ring pillow was embellished with a skull, feathers and luxe velvet. The details were truly ‘of another world’ and only the photos below can really tell the story of this magnificent day. The fantasy, the love and all the sensational yet spooky details…
Congratulations Ben & Gwynn! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness… thank you for sharing your amazing day with us. We loved every minute!
At Angelica Peady Photography we love a bride that’s a little bit offbeat. The more funky, outlandish or alternative – the more excited we are to be part of your big day. Tattoos, wild details and unusual requests are our speciality but whatever your day if you are celebrating the ‘real you’ we want to be your photographer. Our favourite weddings are those that capture the essence of a couple, reflecting their passions, loves and hobbies.
