Gatsby Wedding Inspiration + The Wedding Collective Showcase Event

by | Bride, Inspiration Shoot, Wedding Inspiration


This incredible Gatsby Wedding Inspiration shoot was pulled together by The Wedding Collective- a talented group of Brisbane wedding professionals to show off their talents ahead of their annual Gala.

Comprising of Stewart Ross Photography,  Wedding Films by Samantha Fletcher, Urban Weddings, Cake Star, The Babushka Ballerina, Wil Valor, Rush EntertainmentEpic Empire FurnitureWhite + White Weddings and EventsAmini ConceptsBouquet Boutique Wedding Bling. This year’s event will take on a Gatsby edge at Brisbane’s opulent Mirra Private Dining.

Danielle of White + White Weddings and Events explains, “This year The Wedding Collective has taken on a “Great Gatsby” feel as we felt there is already a strong contemporary relevance to the fun and glamorous “Gatsby” theming in weddings of today.”

Rush Entertainment provided Gatsby-esq costumes and dancers to set the scene.

“The gold, art deco accents matched up with the glamour and opulence styling of the 1920’s era, provides so many possibilities and can be adapted for the modern bride; from a soft, romantic, vintage style of this Era to a full “Gatsby Glam” extravagance with over the top opulent styling.”

The “bride” wore a The Babushka Ballerina gown.

“For more of a subtle take of this theme, one or two key elements such as gold accents, embellishments or pop colours, like emerald can be incorporated into the wedding.”

Urban Weddings created black and gold stationery to compliment the art deco styling.

Bouquet Boutique created a bouquet in bronze hues. The floral centrepieces took on an opulent feel.

Wil Valor outfitted the “Groom” in a sharp bowtie and suit combination.

” As well as the styling, The Gatsby theme can be brought into other areas such as entertainment – Think swing bands and flapper dancers; as well at catering – what about creative canapés, signature cocktails and champagne towers!”

Cake Star created an art deco style cake with metallic and black detailing.

Wedding Films by Samantha Fletcher created a film to show off the event.

The Wedding Collective Showcase Gala, held this year on August 21st, invites couples to dress up in their Gatsby finest and enjoy a different kind of wedding venue – full of elements you can taste, touch and feel rather than the traditional wedding expo of looking and no touching! A gala designed to inspire and indulge your senses.
