‘Moody Industrial with a Vintage Twist’ Black and Cranberry Halloween Wedding Inspiration

Today I have a day off, woo hoo! I am out for the day with Dexter picking pumpkins, enjoying some Halloween fun and hoping that it stops raining at some point!  Nik is off as well so the 3 of us are out tomorrow. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween festivities so far this year, totally gutted that we can’t trick or treat as normal but we are trying to make it as special as possible this year despite the many restrictions we are living under! So on with today’s styled shoot. This one is a very subtle nod towards Halloween, as it is more gothic and industrial than full on Halloween. The shoot took place in February last year in Columbus, Ohio at Dock 580 which has unfortunately now closed due to the effects of Covid on the events industry. The shoot is a stylish mix of moody industrial and vintage, with accents of cranberry and lots of black. So far this week we have really seen a great mixture of black wedding dresses, showing that it doesn’t just have to be about the classic white wedding dress, Black wedding dresses are super stylish, modern and oh so chic. Big thanks to Kaila Sarene Photography and her team of first class suppliers who put the shoot together.

Kaila the photographer tells us more about the shoot

After seeing the black dress trend hitting the wedding industry, I knew immediately I wanted to use one. I wanted to show brides that you can go for a moody wedding look and still be classy in a practical way. I matched the industrial look of Dock 580 with the tables we used, but decorated them in an art-deco way with stone candle holders and a gold centerpiece with the florals. Our florist made beautiful loose blooms that carried the moody industrial look I wanted, including deep cranberry and yellows that pulled in some of the art and brick around the venue. La Prima Beauty showed off with a bold look for the bride that carried our theme as well.
