WHITBY, UNITED KINGDOM - OCTOBER 27: Goths Tony and Angela Lightowler pose for wedding pictures after re-newing their marriage vows at St Mary The Virgin Church during Whitby Gothic Weekend on October 27, 2007, in Whitby, England. Tony and Angela of Stockton-On-Tees were married two and a half years ago but decided to take their vows again during Whitby Gothic Weekend with themselves and their guests dressed in Gothic clothing. Whitby Gothic Weekend, which started in 1994 to celebrate all things dark and mysterious, has now grown to a twice yearly event for Goths. Whitby was partly chosen because Bram Stoker wrote his famous Dracula story in the fishing town with the Gothic Whitby Abbey as his inspiration. The weekend has now grown from providing a few bands to include followers of Romanticism and Dracula.
