Forget the soft pastels and whimsical florals! This editorial takes a walk on the wilder side, showcasing the elegance and allure of a gothic wedding at the historic Lanam Club in Andover, MA. Steeped in rich jewel tones and dramatic details, this shoot proves that a dark wedding can be undeniably romantic and utterly unforgettable.

A Bride with Edge

Our bride stuns in a breathtaking black chiffon and lace gown. The flowing fabric cascades down her form, creating a sense of ethereal elegance, while the intricate lace adds a touch of Victorian-inspired mystery. Her beauty look is a captivating mix of strength and softness. Half of her face is painted like a skull, the detailed makeup with hints of shimmering silver and black adding a touch of drama without sacrificing elegance.

A Love That Endures

The groom complements his bride perfectly. Dressed in a classic black suit with a crisp white shirt, he too has half his face painted in a hauntingly beautiful design. This shared detail creates a sense of unity and reflects the dark romance theme.

Venue as Backdrop

The Lanam Club, with its rich history and gothic architecture, provided the perfect backdrop for this unique editorial. Imagine the couple exchanging vows beneath the grand staircase, bathed in the warm glow of flickering candles. The wrought-iron railings could be adorned with cascading ivy and deep red roses. The reception space could be transformed with deep purple tablecloths, centerpieces featuring candelabras and ravens perched on stacks of ancient books. Bouquets overflowing with black calla lilies and blood-red roses would complete the atmosphere.

Beyond the Ordinary

This dark wedding editorial is more than just aesthetics. It's about celebrating love in a way that's bold, dramatic, and utterly unique. It's a testament to the fact that your wedding day can be a true reflection of your personalities, even if they lean towards the unconventional.

A Timeless Inspiration

This shoot serves as an inspiration for couples who want a wedding that's anything but ordinary.
