Is anyone not considering a Great Gatsby wedding theme this week?

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely week. I’m working on a few little blog features for the weeks ahead and I’ve had to turn off the TV, avoid reading anything online or in magazines and steer pretty clear of wedding blogs and websites – as well as my inbox!

The Great Gatsby

Is it me or do they look a tiny bit bored already?

Why? I’m all Great Gatsbied-out.

Art Deco is a wonderfully inspiring style. It doesn’t quite fit with my wedding calligraphy business, but the striking lines and impactful fonts make for amazing wedding stationery. The glitz and glam are to die for as far as wedding dresses and bridal accessories go. But I need to make a confession: it’s not really me.

So I’m looking for fresh alternatives to Gatsby styling and wedding ideas which aren’t inspired by art deco this week! Can you help me?

If anyone has a gorgeous new product which is bright and colourful, rustic and boho or otherwise inspiring, I’d love to see! I’m also looking for alternative shoots full of sunshine and amazing details to share with everyone here. Email me – info@english-wedding.com with your ideas!

And best of all, if you’re a bride, groom or wedding photographer and you’d like to email me a real wedding to feature on the English Wedding Blog I will be over the moon! Just – anything without Leonardo DiCaprio’s face on it would be nice. I’ve nothing against him but I’ll be dreaming about him at this rate…

Oops. I got carried away researching this blog post and made a Great Gatsby inspired wedding board on Pinterest!

If you found this wedding blog post through Google and you were looking for Great Gatsby wedding inspiration then I’m sorry to disappoint (and at worst possibly make you angry! Oops). Here are some links to lovely things you’ll enjoy instead.

  • Moments or details? LOVE this pic from @crislowisphotography which for me answers the question. Yeah, we love details and planning and the excitement of making a wedding beautiful. But afterwards, when only your photos and memories are left to remind you of your best day ever? It's the moments you'll fall in love with over and over again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
