The Dark Romantic: Elegant Gothic Bridal Style

27th April 2016

Winter is coming. Embrace the darkness with an elegant gothic bridal style.

The Dark Romantic-37

Candles, velvet, crystal and goblets of black spawn a gothic wedding of intense elegance. Bridal style has never seen such dark romance, and it achingly beautiful. 

An Autumn or Winter wedding would wear this dramatic styling by Made to Match Events with divine perfection. As the weather cools here in Australia, cool tones in varying textures of linen, velvet, silver and marble meet the warmth of the fire from candles and deep tones of burgundy.

Masses of pillar candles amongst black candlesticks and black goblets bring a rich darkness to grey linen in a high end gothic tablescape.

Olive green velvet and deep mahogany genuine vintage chairs from Moments in Vintage flush out the earthy elements to the colour palette.

Deep sultry eyes and a contoured blackberry lip with perfectly defined brows brings a sultry elegance to the bride’s delicate features, and her striking upstyle finishes the gothic bridal look. The oversized bouquet featuring deep red roses is tied with a black ribbon.

Like melted candle wax, the pillar cake is iced in black and decorated with fresh fruit and flowers.
