1920s Style Vintage Wedding at Allerton Castle

7 Aug 2013

The 1920s look is very much on trend at the moment thanks to the recent release of The Great Gatsby and there is so much to admire in this stylish era.

This vintage Charleston inspired wedding encapsulated the glamour and elegance of the flapper period.



The dramatic 19th century gothic setting of Allerton Castle was the venue for the wedding ceremony, breakfast and evening reception and provided the perfect backdrop for a fabulously unique event.

We created a look of true 20s elegance by using a lush mix of roses, seasonal spring varieties and plentiful foliage.



To achieve a mix of classic elegance and show-stopping drama we used two separate colour schemes. The bridal party and wedding ceremony flowers were designed using timeless white and ivory with lots of mixed greenery.

The floral style in the ballroom was a complete contrast, using bright mixed colours combined with palms and other lush foliage.

Ever-so-slightly over the top with plenty of drama, the overall look was one of an indoor garden bursting into glorious bloom.

Large headed roses, spray roses and feature two-tone and striped varieties in shades of peach, coral, pink, bright red and green were used with accents of blue and purple.


Graceful stems of gladioli, lilies in fabulous shades of deep pink and peach, amaryllis, broom and gypsophila combined to create a theatrical look that Gatsby would have been proud of.

For a thoroughly vintage finish, brooches and lace were added into the bridal hand-tie bouquet and the bride collected numerous silver trays, vases, cake stands and vintage glassware to use on the registrar’s table and guest tables.

The whole style was extremely eclectic which suited the bright colour palette perfectly. Coloured water and sugared fruits completed the effect.
