1920s Great Gatsby Wedding Styled Shoot

One of the fun things about working in the wedding industry is meeting new people and collaborating with them, even if it’s done remotely. Last fall I was approached by Daniela from Shop and Marry

1920s Great Gatsby style wedding table

She was organizing a 1920s inspired styled shoot. A styled shoot is when different wedding professionals (photographers, make up artists, bridal attire, florists, stationers, etc.) all pitch in their services and/or products to create a photographs that can then be shopped around to magazines and blogs.

Daniela and her team had a neat concept, they secured an old deep red rail car, which set the stage for the old-timey wedding theme of the shoot. I contributed art-deco style wedding invitations, table numbers, place cards and a program cover. The design for the shoot contained a silhouetted cameo element.

I modified this design and it’s now in the shop as the Deco wedding invitation design set. I have to confess, designing in the art deco style didn’t come so easily to me, it’s not a trend I readily embraced. However I’m glad I cracked it in the end, the ‘Great Gatsby’ look is not going anywhere and so far this year the deco wedding design has been a best seller!

If you're in the DACH region, you can find more of these images in the February issue of MarryMag (Issue #6).
