A modern Gatsby wedding inspiration shoot with PapaKata and Dominic Wright Photography

She purred…” said our PM this week, and I quite liked it. Oh, to purr in velvety tones with all the glamour of a Hollywood starlet – I’d love to speak that way! It’s how I imagine today’s super glamorous bride would sound: she has that timelessly elegant beauty originating from the Great Gatsby era and I know you’ll adore this shoot!

Sperry tents

Our bride wears the most exciting of vintage styles: an Eliza Jane Howell designer wedding gown with sequins, sheer sleeves and a fabulous belt, all in the softest shades making a gently sophisticated statement. Her groom wears a luxurious navy suit with bow tie, creating a look both elegant and vintage which fits the style of the day.

Combining rich, midnight blues and natural textures with minimal design and a focus on comfort, the setting for the shoot is one of PapaKata’s gorgeous new Sperry tents – indeed today’s styled shoot is the brainchild of PapaKåta, The Wedding Affair and Dominic Wright Photography.

With a simple but stylish combination of a Sperry tent, classy furnishings and statement pieces of stationery, flowers and signage you can easily recreate this elegant vintage wedding style. The tents bring Hollywood glamour all the way from the US; the wedding gown of shimmering sequins transports us to another place and time… it’s every glamorous girl’s Gatsby wedding dream!

Setting the scene with fabulous stationery…
