Ehellions know I have no kind thoughts for theme weddings that look more like theatrical productions than theÂ serious sealing of vows a wedding ceremony is supposed to represent. The overuse of theatrical type make-up and theatrical props to pull off this Goth wedding ceremony puts it way over the edge as one of the worst examples of “wedding theme gone bad” I’ve ever seen.

Bride and gloom: Meet the happy couple behind this goth wedding
8th March 2008, Daily Mail
The bride was smiling and the groom looked a picture of happiness.But while this black wedding was a joyous occasion the two newylweds involved have certainly taken the phrase for better or worse to a whole new level.
Childhood sweethearts Julie Williams, 45, and Dylon Holroyd, 49, decided to tie the knot goth style, although judging by the amount of people dressed in black one could be forgiven for thinking they were attending a funeral and not a happy celebration.

Arcade worker Julie, who arrived to the nupitals in a coffin and hearse, said their wedding seemed “like the most natural thing to do.”
Julie, nicknamed Morticia by friends, walked her husband down the aisle with none other than a dog lead and said they decided to tie the knot after first meeting 27 years ago.
“We went our separate ways when we were young, married other people and had children,” she told the Mirror.
“But then we bumped into each other last year and realised we were meant to be together.
“So the first thing I did was put a dog collar around his neck and say ‘It’s taken me this long to get you, I’m not letting you escape now’.”
More than 100 guests attended the register office wedding in Wakefiled, Yorkshire, and Julie’s wedding coffin now takes pride of place as her lounge room coffee table.
