Vintage Pin Up Wedding with a Touch of The Great Gatsby

Bre and Matt’s wedding had a vintage yet moody theme with some Great Gatsby references. They were married in British Columbia in Canada in September. Their ceremony was on a rooftop overlooking the Okanagan Lake.

“We met when were were 13 and aged 17 we agreed that if we weren’t married to other people by 25 we’d marry each other!” Bre began. “Life took us on separate paths for a while, but we reconnected and actually started dating when we were 23. Not long after we started dating, we went on a big road trip, and one night on the California coast Matt told me he loved me. Fast forward two years and Matt planned another trip for us, which brought us back to the exact same place he told me he loved me. That night he proposed to me on the balcony overlooking the ocean. That promise we made when we were 17 had been kept, and at 25 we were engaged!”

Great Gatsby & Art Deco Inspired Pub Wedding

Great Gatsby & Art Deco Inspired Pub Wedding (35)

Brooke and Reece first met in high school and were married in Australia in September. The main inspiration for the wedding was their venue; The Provincial Hotel in Fitzroy. It had the laid back feel they were after and had lots of rustic charm. Their theme was mash up of rustic, handmade details and the Great Gatsby. They decided to not have a first dance, cut the cake or throw the bouquet as they didn’t want a scheduled wedding with time frames and things to remember, they just wanted to party!

“We have a love for the art deco era but didn’t want to fully base the wedding on a theme so we chose certain aspects to be art deco inspired and the rest rustic and laid back,” explained Brooke. “We really wanted a venue that was in Fitzroy as that area means a lot to us. We were so happy to find out that The Provincial Hotel does weddings as we frequent there often and we wanted the venue to show a little something about us.”

Sarah and Justin were married in Yaletown, Vancouver, in October. Their wedding theme was eclectic with a bohemian, art deco glam feel. “We wanted our guests to be relaxed as well as showcase our personalities” explained Sarah, “so we had a relaxed reception with food stations and canapés rather than a sit down meal.”

The couple had a candlelit, romantic, dreamy ceremony with unique rather than traditional vows. “My favourite part of the wedding was the ceremony” said Sarah, “especially the moment when I walked into the room and down the aisle – I was just blown away with how amazing the room looked and even smelt.”

Imogen and Jordan were married on 31st October in London. The wedding was inspired by art deco, Autumn and, of course, Halloween! However they didn’t want their day to be too themed, so they went for subtle touches such as glittery pumpkins and the bridesmaids wearing black lace masks for the ceremony.

“I’m a huge vintage and an art deco enthusiast and I absolutely love glitter”, said the bride. “At the end of the day all the staff were covered in glitter head to toe. We first met on Halloween, at a party when we were at school. so we wanted to be married on the exact same day. I took inspiration from Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby too as we really love the style of that film and how beautiful everything looked.”

Art Deco Inspired Wedding in Loire Valley

London dwellers Emma and Jason decided to marry at Les Noes Blanches, a gorgeous private hire château in Loire Valley, France. The 450 acres of gardens and private estate made for the perfect setting for their intimate vintage inspired wedding. 

“The main theme was the 1920s”, said Emma. “Our colour scheme was white, black and gold but we also gave the day a modern twist. We took  cues from art deco and stripped it back to clean lines, and added a softer colours through flowers. The rural French château itself suited our theme too as it was white, clean and unfussy. We removed anything from the wedding that didn’t speak to our core values and we jettisoned anything that is just hanging on for traditions sake. We considered what was important to us, and tried to transmit that with each element.”

“While these were our primary sources of inspiration, I spent a long time scouring the Internet for ideas, and anything that made our hearts sing was appropriate”, she continued. “We also wanted a mystical and spiritual nature at the wedding event. I wore a gold Vesica Piscis temporary tattoo from Danielle Laporte representing the union of god and goddess. The pointed oval at the centre of the sacred geometric pattern is also said to represent the divine feminine. This was something that was really important to me as a woman.”

Travel and Art Deco Themed Wedding

Daniel and Keely had lots of different influences for their October wedding. From the bride’s love of jewel tones – reflected in her dress and make up and the bridesmaid outfits, to their mutual love of travel. They even had art deco references in their stationery. It sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it totally does because it was a real reflection of them.

“The inspiration for our wedding was definitely ‘fun’”, said the bride. “We put a lot of effort into making sure that everyone had as much fun as possible. In fact, most of our decisions were made with our guests in mind. We had the ceremony and reception at the same location so that guests didn’t have to drive to another venue and could have a drink or two at the ceremony. We also did our photos beforehand so that our guests didn’t have a big boring break between ceremony and reception. This also meant we got to spend a lot more time with our guests.”

“We organised lawn games for guests”, she continued. “We had archery (which was a huge hit!), badminton, croquet, boccie and giant Jenga (we made it ourselves and painted it in the colours of the wedding). It was great fun for everyone, and we were so happy to have a venue that was really creative and accommodating. They put in so much work to make sure our ideas could be made real and we really wouldn’t have been able to have the wedding we wanted without a unique venue like The Hideaway Retreat.”
