Wedding Inspiration: 1920’s Elegance

Posted on the 20 December 2017 by Belinda Mccarthy @b_mccarthyphoto

Today, it's time to take a look back at another beautiful wedding and in particular the decor styling that the bride and groom used to present their wedding day to perfection. During my time photographing many weddings in Dorset and Somerset, I've seen a huge variety of different styles and themes used on wedding days, from rustic chic, to classical elegance and everything in between. Some wedding styles really stand out for me though, often because they are particularly unusual or because they fit the venue style so well.

This lovely wedding day has really stuck in my mind, and I'd love to share with you the way that the wedding couple decided to decorate their wedding breakfast room and tables. It was evident that they both already shared a love of 1920's styling, and the bride's wedding dress was even a true 1920's vintage (and oh so beautiful!). From first look, this elegant room was dressed in a fairly traditional style, with white linen and flowers in cut glass vases; but take a closer look, and you'll see the vintage touches with the typefaces used, the gold rimmed placeholders and most importantly the subtle themes for each table by using influential people of the time as table names, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Frida Kahlo. Even better, many of the tables used a little quote from their namesake, or a snippet of information about them with which to delight their guests.

I absolutely love the freshness and elegance of this gorgeous wedding theme, and of course it can be adapted to suit your own tastes and favourites from this or another period in time. For example, you could use iconic Hollywood actors or directors; or perhaps 19th century romantic poets; or even important scientists of a particular era! Who would you use to decorate your wedding tables to perfection?
