Weddings for goths, steampunks, rockers and punks have never been more popular. Never mind conventional white gowns and traditional hymns, if you’re planning an alternative wedding, you’ll want to do things a little differently from the norm.
From your outfit and ceremony, through to your reception, you can make it as unique as you. But where to start? Here at Alchemy, we’re often asked which of our pieces would be suitable for weddings, so we’ve compiled this handy guide for brides and grooms-to-be who want alternative accessories.
