Amy and Andrew planned their stunningly elegant goth chic wedding at Villa Capri in Sydney, New South Wales with the most gorgeous black lace gown, candles, red and white details, caramel corn favors, and loveliness everywhere.
Amy was never a traditional person — she is covered in tattoos and white was never for her, so she chose elements from dresses she liked and worked with the designer to make her dream, modern black dress. Their wedding was styled by the amazing wedding stylist, Anna Wang, creating a palette full of blacks, reds, and orange-glow candles.

Our style was gothic — full of blacks and reds and glowing candles. The floral feature roof over the dance floor at the reception was unfortunately, turned into a permanent feature before the wedding day! So the black and red flower roof was out of the question. However, looking back at the pictures, the white actually provided a really nice and open contrast; so in the end, I was still ecstatic with the outcome, and saved some money.
My favorite moment of the day was being walked down the aisle with both parents on each side at ceremony. It will always be a really special moment in my life. Being announced as husband and wife too, of course, and shocking all the guests when Andrew and I made our entrance at the reception, head-banging to a metal song (“Face the Pain” by Stemm)!
My advice: just enjoy yourself… surround yourself in the positive vibes that family, friends and unity brings, and try not to sweat the small stuff!
