Halloween Wedding Lake District

Country home are the perfect backdrop for gothic and Halloween inspired weddings as half the styling is already done for you.

Choosing a wedding theme that is slightly macabre or gothic is actually easier than you think and the expert wedding planning team at Broadoaks can help make your day as special or as spooky as you imagine it to be.

Here are some great ways to incorporate a Halloween feel to your Lake District Wedding

Trade costumes for masquerade – if you love a costume party but don’t want your wedding to become too commercial, opt for a black-tie masquerade ball as your wedding reception. Dial up the glamour with your guest dressing to impress and all behind masks, for that Victorian Gothic vibe.

Pumpkin Colourings – If you are looking for a unique colour palette for your wedding and want to incorporate a Halloween vibe then choose pumpkin spice as your wedding colours. This can include a range of large and small pumpkins, carved or not, to decorate the tables or even the aisle. Autumnal colours work well as they are in season in October and you can match your wedding flowers to this orange feel. Adding a touch of gold or bronze can also ad glamorous touches to this soft colour scheme.

Black, Black & more Black – Using just one colour throughout your wedding can make a very strong statement and look striking in your wedding photographs. Consider black as your wedding dress colour, and even for contrast have your bridesmaids in white. Bold colours work well with black so go classic with whites or reds to contrast the dark base colours. Black table decorations, invitations and favours all work well together especially if you soften the look with twinkling fairy lights or candles.

A Gothic Cake – If there is one place where you really can show your creative gothic Halloween loving side it is with the wedding cake. Choose something from the queen of macabre cake maker Conjurers Kitchen you could even follow this up with chocolate bird skull or eyeball truffle favours for guests to take home.

The Lake District is by its very nature romantic, and if you have a gothic streak running through you then you are probably also a hopeless romantic making The Lakes the perfect place for you to get married. Combine that with the flexibility and creativity of the Broadoaks wedding team and your perfect wedding will happen exactly the way you want it to.
