Friday the 13th Wedding


Leon and Kate are a couple with a fun sense of style and a passion for art, cinema and music. They share a love of 50's fashion, comics, and cheesy horror film. So of course what better day for them to marry than Friday the 13th!

The vision for the day was '1940's Ballroom from the classic horror film 'The Shining', meets a Mad Scientist's Laboratory.... what fun!

The colour theme, Ivory, Black and Dark Red.

I encouraged Kate to go with a classic elegant look with a hint flare... hence the ostrich feathers in her bridal bouquet which consisted of cream vendela roses, cream-blush calla lilies, with ostrich feather detailing, bound in ivory satin.....


 The bridesmaids wore black dresses with red accessories and Kate loved the idea of dark almost-black-reds, for a gothic horror look. We created these posies of deep red roses, black calla lilies, with red berries and black feather touches, bound in black satin....


The look of the bouquets together was very striking composition of flowers to accentuate the fun but gothicy theme of the day.

 

 Leon wore a cream calla lily with feather detail bound in black satin, to compliment Kate's bouquet....

And the Groomsmen wore deep red roses with black feather detail...




The Father's wore simple cream rose buttonholes and the Mother's wore cream spray roses with feather and ribbon touches....



The venue tables with dressed with an array of vases with red roses, calla lilies, black feathers and ribbon, winter twigs and leaves, for an equally gothic and glam look. 



It was such fun to work with Leon and Kate in creating their dream Friday the 13th Wedding. It is a treat to do something a little left of center every now and then and I loved how the rich colours looked with the attire. Very stunning!
