Till Death Do Us Part: A Dark and Bewitching Halloween Pre-Wedding Styled Shoot

With long, eerie shadows, an enchanting witch, and flickering candlelight, this bewitching Halloween styled shoot will give you the shivers.

It’s that time of the year when nights get a little eerier and you start imagining whispers across your cheeks in the dead of night. If you get a thrill from the shivers and spooks every Halloween, then you’re going to fall in love with today’s creepy chic styled shoot, which brings to life the phrase “till death do us part”.

Dreamt up by stylists I Do For You, today’s moody styled shoot showcases an intriguing and unconventional pre-wedding shoot concept that goth couples will appreciate. “The concept was a blend between the movie Addams Family as well as elements from Halloween and witchcraft,” shares the team. “These elements provided a mysterious-enough aura around the styled shoot to make it dark and inviting, yet aesthetically pleasing.”

Styled in a moody and gothic black palette with hints of brown varying between dark and light oaks, speckled with pumpkin orange, the Halloween shoot was set in Seletar Northlink with its dark and mysterious foliage hidden off the beaten track. With florist Dancing Petals, the team created a twisty arch with blood-red florals and moody foliage, and styled the set with sorcerous elements such as white skulls, vintage candelabras with dripping candles, and ominous spiderwebs.

“We pictured a fearless witch who was willing to go above and beyond to get the man of her dreams,” the team from I Do For You tells us. “Hence, the photos show a series of her journey to bewitch the man with her beauty, unbeknownst to him that their romance has been premeditated through witchcraft!”

For her bewitching look, the model wore a dramatic black gown with a tulle overskirt and shimmering constellation beading by Bridefully Yours, with a moody black veil adding to the haunting vibe. Autelier Makeup gave the model a dark and smokey look, with mysterious and enchanting eyes and a dark lip, topped off with wild curls. The model groom was dressed in an all-black suit paired with a black tie, also from Bridefully Yours.

The magic happened as twilight faded and darkness fell, enchanting the shoot with eerie shadows cast by flickering candlelight, as the witch casts the man of her dreams fully under her spell. The haunting mood was perfectly captured by photographers Hey Stranger, who elevated the Halloween concept by creating an ominous effect both during the shoot and in post-processing.

With their enchantingly mysterious Halloween styled shoot, the team hopes to inspire couples not to be limited by convention. “We want couples to know that they are not obliged to conform to convention and their magical moment should be uniquely theirs,” I Do For You shares. “Vendors such as all of us involved in this styled shoot, are willing to jump on board for any of such unique concepts.” So let your imagination run wild the next time a dark and moody wedding theme in mind, or want to take your shoot into the fantastical realm. Make some magic!
