It’s a New 20’s Era, But Everything Old is New Again

20th July 2020

In this Downton Abbey-esque inspiration shoot we've put a modern twist on a distinctly vintage style.

In honour of the new (I’d like to say “- and improved”, but 2020 got us like…) era of the 20’s, we put together a photo shoot for our latest magazine that harps back to the 1920’s. Knowing lots of shoots with a Gatsby style would start cropping up, we wanted to go in another direction, incorporating a more classic, traditional feel. 

Couples who were wed in the manor houses like the one Downton Abbey was styled off were all about luxe details, yet understated sophistication. Dreamy, lush floral arrangements were ever present, while bridal fashion was about chic lines and little embellishment for sincere glamour of the times. 

When Tradition + Modern are a Match Made in Heaven

Every detail down to the very English traditional four-tiered off-white cake, crystal glassware, and silver candelabras scream “vintage”, yet the lace table runner and dusty pink linen napkins, along with the festoon and fairy lighting bring in the modern element.

The classy stationery suite hinted at the calligraphy style that would have been sent to all of polite society in times gone by, complete with wax seals. 

Our stellar team of wedding pros came together to create something truly authentic, yet with a modern twist that resulted in some seriously unique Sunshine Coast wedding inspiration.
