When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most and truly enchanting inspirations is choosing a Gothic theme. From the bridal gown to the hair, makeup, flower arrangement and decor, all in an almost nostalgic, sensual and unforgettable style.
A famous Gothic wedding was that of Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson in 2005. It was well documented by Vogue, in the March 2006 issue. Von Teese wore a purple Vivienne Westwood gown, as shot by Steven Klein. Her best friend, Christian Louboutin, designed her matching purple wedding shoes.
And one cannot forget about the cake!
Gothic Wedding Cakes Are Gothlicious!
See this stunning creation by Lorelie Carvey – pretty poppy flowers with sugar beaded center, soft lavender sugar veil lace wrapping the bottom tier. Matte black fondant and creamy butter cream are merged into one design.
Here are some Gothic inspirational photo shoots discovered in Junebug Weddings‘s blog.
