It’s a Vintage Love Affair! Gatsby Inspired Bridal Style at The Wedding Collective Gala Showcase


Flapper dress, T-bar shoes, glitzy hairpieces and swing house music, nothing else encapsulates glamorous romance in a more opulent way than the roaring 20’s style, revived by the legendary movie the Great Gatsby.  

The Wedding Collective has got together a couple of independent suppliers in the wedding industry to celebrate the Gatsby-inspired romance at its annual Gala Showcase, and I was fortunate enough to be on their guest list.

I’ve always been a keen supporter of individual local brands with big characters and uniqueness. What happens when a few Australian creative minds such as George Wu, Sierra Ramke from The Babushka Ballerina and Wil Valor join forces to paint a picture of Gatsby-inspired love affair? I found myself blinded by spectacular explosion of glitz and glamour, and my heart entrapped by the intricate details of the masterfully designed wedding gowns…

Made my heart sing seeing this oh-so-stunning gown by George Wu with delicate French lace and lavish Italian embroideries, definitely my favourite of the night!

I’d probably sound a little but creepy but I totally loved stalking these glamorous ladies on the night to see how they took on Gatsby-inspired romance…



Don’t you just LOVE that mini cocktail shaker? So lovely that I could use it as a little evening clutch!
