Only Lovers Left Alive {A Gothic Wedding shoot at Lesnes Abbey}

Gothic wedding

Finally I can share these images with you from a gothic wedding photo shoot I was involved in! Aside from a couple of Facebook sneak peeks, and a pair that I threw into my “Best of 2012” blogpost, I’ve had these waiting for months to be blogged – they were lined up for a feature in Unique Bride’s latest issue, and I wasn’t allowed to share them until the magazine came out!

The shoot was the brainchild of Lau Delpech from Frenchmade, and she pulled together some amazing suppliers to make it come to life! I loved that I could go a little more editorial, a little more high fashion (all those seasons of Next Top Model had to be good for something!) than I usually can at a wedding. And all the details…well, details make me sing. I loved the whole vintage-meets- gothic wedding setup! Just gorgeous.

You can see a full list of everyone involved at the end of the post.
