Think romantic Goth for today’s real wedding! Set in Villa Capri Sydney, couple Amy and Andrew created their own version of a romantic Goth fairytale, that’s far from traditional. We first featured this wedding in BOND Bride, but with a beautiful, bespoke wedding dress, chic black and red styling, and a backdrop to die for, we just had to share it on the blog to! We hear from the couple themselves who tell us all the details of their perfect Villa Capri wedding day…
How did you and Andrew meet?
“Andrew and I met through mutual friends. We almost didn’t meet back then as he was heading overseas the next day but decided to come out to a local club for the night anyway. He was extremely shy at first, but then with some liquid courage and cheek, he asked to borrow my mobile to make a call and ended up calling himself to get my number!”
“Andrew organised the proposal in advance, with some help from some friends. We were all heading overseas to Hong Kong for a wedding, and decided to extend our trip to a few other places. So when we were at the Fushimi Inari temple in Kyoto, Japan (my favourite city!) he bent the knee and popped the question. I was so floored; my first thought was that “Why is he doing that – is he offering me chocolate?!”
“I was never a traditional person! I am covered in tattoos and white was never for me, so naturally, I always knew I would be wearing a black dress. I picked some elements from dresses I liked and worked with the designer to make the dream dress. I very much love the modern styles but also love the Gothic look that replacing white lace with black lace makes.”
Planning The Wedding
“We knew we wanted our wedding to be Gothic; full of blacks and reds and orange-glow 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.”
The Best Part of the Day
“Being walked down the aisle with both parents on each side at ceremony 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)!”
Words of Wisdom
“Just enjoy yourself… surround yourself in the positive vibes that family, friends and unity brings, and try not to sweat the small stuff!”
