Gorgeous black wedding inspiration for you!

Because a black wedding doesn’t necessarily mean a goth wedding! Black is one of the most elegant, timeless, chic, formal and sophisticated colours, so why not use it as part of your wedding colour palette? For all those black colour lovers, we gathered some gorgeous black wedding inspiration for you.

A black wedding can be whimsical, ethereal, modern, elegant, boho, minimalist or whatever you want it to be! It all comes down to the styling and the elements that you choose to incorporate in your theme.

Wedding dress

Break the tradition and bring the wow factor with a beautiful black wedding dress. This ball gown style with a tulle skirt pulls your waistline giving you an amazing shape.

Groom’s look

A black on black look for the groom and the groomsmen will make them look both elegant and chic. The little button brings a touch of burgundy to the table. A creative and unique accent to the groom look.


A lovely example of bridesmaids wearing black while incorporating a celestial theme. The golden stars pop on the black tulle fabric creating a romantic/ cosmic look.


Your backdrop plays a protagonistic role in your ceremony, it will be part of your ‘I do’ photos and will function as the frame for your first kiss as a married couple, so this idea could be a great way to incorporate black in a moody warm way.
