The Great Gatsby Wedding, Lizzie & Wesley
The roaring 1920’s conjures up exquisite imagery of flapper dancers, gangsters & endless glass saucers of the finest champagne. A decadent era & the perfect choice of theme for the talented fashion designer Lizzie & her own handsome Gatsby, Wesley.
After a whirlwind year living in Oxford, getting engaged in Sorrento, Italy, they headed back home to Melbourne to put the finishing touches to their 1920’s themed cocktail reception. Guests were instructed to adorn themselves in flapper & gangster attire whilst Lizzie & Wesley channeled the elegance & grace of Daisy & Gatsby, to host a swell celebration electrified by the swing band, Frankie Wants Out.
Lizzie chose a glamorous wedding gown by Sonia Cappelazzo, embellished with intricate beading that complimented the vintage style hair brooch by Claire Macardle. Her ruby red rose bouquet sat perfectly with the dapper groomsmen, who wore a classic black bow tie ensemble.
Lizzie described the day as “the best day of my life” and her top tip for brides to be is to “spend the reception together & try not to catch up with everyone, just enjoy the day”
