Amy Vosinthavong says she has never been a traditional person.

So when it came to her wedding day, she knew she wanted something a little different.

Instead of going for the traditional big white dress, Amy decided on a black lace gown.

The 29-year-old from Sydney, and groom Andrew, 31, decided on a ‘goth and punk-infused’ wedding, to reflect their personalities.

She told Femail: ‘I have always the loved the alternate scene, specifically the goth/punk scene.

‘Andrew isn’t quite a traditionalist either, but he was happy for me to take the reins with the decor and theme of the wedding.’

Amy said that she didn’t want to just go for a traditional wedding because that’s what other people wanted as she feels it should be the couple’s day.

She added: ‘I definitely wouldn’t have felt as on top of the world as I did had I been in a traditional white gown,’ she said.

‘I am also covered in tattoos and white was never for me.’

As well as the black dress, they had a soundtrack that included Sum 41, the Foo Fighters and Death Cab for Cutie.

The couple even head-banged their way out after being officially announced as husband and wife.

The bridesmaids were able to choose their own dresses but they had to be grey to fit the theme.

And the reception was filled with black, red and orange – even the cake was a dark gothic theme.

Amy said her family and friends – particularly the older guests – were shocked and struggled to understand the theme, but her mum knew that it suited her daughter’s personality.

She said: ‘That’s my Amy.’
