A 1920’s Great Gatsby Themed Wedding in Nova Scotia


Amanda and Georges’ Great Gatsby-inspired wedding was a complete throwback to the roaring twenties and everyone on the guest list took the theme to heart. Women arrived in feathered and bejewelled outfits and flapper attire and men donned top hats reminiscent of this fashionable era.

The couple incorporated their stylish theme throughout the celebration with invitations resembling old movie programs, vintage furniture and an altar constructed from 200 year old church doors. Amanda was resplendent in a form-fitting, vintage-inspired Anna Sui gown and paired it with fingerless gloves and a sparkling white headband.

The couple says their favourite moment of the day was holding their daughter as they they said their “I dos” — a moment in time they’ll never forget.
