A Gorgeous Gothic Wedding Shoot

When florist Christine Gysi of Swiss floral design company hochzeitsblumen.ch stumbled upon a floral beard for the first time she showed her boss Claudia Heid who simply said, "You find the model and we'll have the shoot."  Which is how, along with third colleague Nicole Soder, they created this stunning set of photographs featuring beards, garlands, pups, feathers, chains and more.

The hochzeitsblumen.ch ladies don't run a shop, but instead can be found online and are commissioned for weddings, events and shoots like this one, which kicked-off after Claudia and Christine met Boris, the male model pictured here in dapper tux and floral accessories. Christine explains, "I knew Boris was a photographer himself, but when we met at the Wedding Meetup Switzerland I couldn't resist asking him if he fancied a go in front of the camera instead. He spontaneously said yes! From there our plans just snowballed."

"Suddenly we were talking gothic. We'd always wanted to do some goth-themed work but sadly had never had any such wedding requests. So we decided if we're going to organise a shoot for ourselves, we'll make the most of being in charge and would style it how we'd always imagined."

With Boris on board the team could plan the rest, like these amazing costumes.

"It took several months to get everything ready, but in June we finally all got together – it was the first time we'd all met properly - and spent a fun day producing the pictures. The photographer Nadine Jayaraj is also someone we met at the Swiss Wedding Meetup.

"Sandra, our female model, is a friend of mine, and Nastasia Widmer our make-up artist was found after a call on Facebook. The costumes are mostly our own although the tux was rented and the kilt was borrowed from the Black Sheep Pipe Band. I designed and custom-made the bridal gown myself."

Each having their own idea of the perfect gothic wedding, the hochzeitzblumen.ch ladies naturally created a selection of totally different bouquets.

"Claudia made the gypsohilia bouquet, Nicole made the teardrop and feathered designs and I took on the flower fan, the floral bear and carnation lei."

We went weak at the knees when we stumbled upon their photos for the first time and had to share them with you. Why not think about making your dream shoot a reality?!
