This is definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but this board was inspired by these beautiful and somewhat eerie photos which Marie Labbancz posted on her blog a few weeks ago. If your style leans towards the non-traditional, why not reflect that in your wedding? A palette of jet black and blood red can be accented with touches of antique gold, portraits can be taken in a beautiful cemetery and buttons and other memorabilia from the movie The Corpse Bride could be given as guest favors. There’s no reason why goth can’t be glamorous and romantic!

Several months ago, I discovered this super-talented New York based photographer and instantly fell in love with her work. Meet Punam Bean. It’s hard to believe, but Punam has only been photographing weddings professionally for just over a year! Her work is simply magical…the kinds of images one would conjure up in one’s mind when reading an enchanting fairy tale.
After writing this post, I also discovered that Punam is guest blogging on the ever-inspiring Wedding Bee Pro blog this week so pop on over to the “bee hive” to see what she has to say. You can also check out Punam’s blog to learn more about her and her work. Meanwhile, here’s a little eye candy for your drooling pleasure…
