With nods to both Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan and Gothic fantasy, this boldly captivating eventscape embraces the idea of letting conventions go. Germany-based Event designer Kathrin Otzmann set out to show soon-to-weds that they shouldn’t steer clear of unexpected locales or colors that are often perceived to be somber. “We wanted to express that the color black can be both elegant and festive,” Kathrin says. “It can be a happy color!” Filled with feathers, swan curios, and sprinklings of gold leaf, the shoot was set in an abandoned industrial space in northern Bavaria. The symbolism of the crumbling setting was clear. “You can’t go wrong with a little bit of drama,” Kathrin says. “Your venue or surroundings do not need to be perfect. You don’t have to get married in an immaculate park or garden or castle. It’s all in the details and how a couple fills a space with atmosphere and soul.” Perfection in letting go, indeed!
