Dare you enter the ‘Unconventional Wedding’ haunted church this Halloween?
Well it’s not too spooky today with this gothic same sex wedding inspired styled shoot shot in Glastonbury. It’s a moody and atmospheric which suits the venue perfectly.

Top tips to acheive this Gothic same sex Wedding look
Choosing the right Gothic wedding venue
Sarah’s first top tip for creating this look is to find the right venue because it makes the rest easy. If you can have this as your backdrop, you don’t need to do a lot of styling and your photos will be amazing.
Go black and own it
Secondly, the dresses and accessories … go black and own it. Some people are scared because black is associated with death, but it doesn’t need to be that way. This is the perfect opportunity to change mindsets.
Get the best wedding flowers you can
And lastly, get the best flowers you can afford! Some people think flowers are just a thing you should have, but they can massively change the way you, your venue and table look! Also, for gothic, go foraging. We foraged all the ivy and some other foliage from local woods and it’s free!
