Pierrot inspired halloween wedding
This week on the blog we have this gorgeous Halloween inspired wedding shoot for you. Its reference is a ‘secret wedding of Pierrot’ with a subtle and stylish nod to Halloween.
We love an alternative wedding here at Urban and for us, a Halloween wedding is the ultimate!
If you are planning a Halloween wedding then head here to find the perfect Halloween wedding dress.
where was this Halloween wedding shoot?
This shoot was in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. A creative and digital quarter based in the City Centre at the heart of the indie Liverpool scene.
Baltic Creative Digital House is a newly opened former Victorian warehouse converted by Baltic Creative CIC into a state of the art studio for digital/tech businesses.
We utilised the ground floor space designated for a café/break out hub because I immediately fell in love with the high ceilings and huge windows so lots of natural light.
The warmth of aged bare brick juxtaposed against modern industrial steel girders and concrete was the perfect backdrop for bringing an old story bang up to date

What made you decide to do the Halloween inspired wedding shoot?
Although I’d been involved in lots of fabulous shoots by loaning dresses and accessories to some amazing suppliers, I’d actually never coordinated a shoot myself.
The camaraderie between suppliers, working together to bring an idea to life is incredibly addictive. Not to mention a lot of fun and so I decided to take the plunge.
YES!! We love this as we are huge on collaborations and so love that other people do too!
Pierrot Halloween wedding inspiration
The lush foliage included eucalyptus, ferns, jasmine and faded hydrangea freshly foraged from the garden the night before.
On the day of the shoot, florist Anna was greeted with a carpet of greenery which she expertly arranged into a table runner and show-stopping swag down a set of vintage wooden library ladders from Sara A at Lovely Lending.
The original story sees Columbine falling for the charms of the handsome, smooth-talking Harlequin so I’ve made reference to this in the harlequin inspired cake complete with a gold comedy/tragedy mask cake topper and napkins.
Pierrot wedding inspiration
A beautiful 1970s vintage wedding dress with a high collar in the style of Pierrot and my love of the two Tims – Walker and Burton.
It was nearing Halloween after all so I decided to take Pierrot, the sad clown out of the 17th-century Italian pantomime where he’d been languishing all these years and reunite him in the 21st century with his long lost love, Columbine, A testimony that true love will last throughout the years., it was a lovely nod to a Halloween wedding.
I’d been friends with Barb ever since we met at The Women’s Organisation in Liverpool six years ago when we were both starting out in the wedding industry, loved her work and knew she’d be the ideal photographer for this shoot.
In fact, all the suppliers were hand-picked for their unique style and creativity so I was confident that they would deliver the goods!
The cutest addition to the shoot was Andrea’s puppy, Cannoli, a Pembrokeshire Corgi
