We’re always up for a Great Gatsby inspired wedding, and this one may just be one of our favorites. Carla Atley captured the wedding of Alea and Francois, which was filled to the brim with black and gold paper goods, vintage-inspired bridesmaid dresses, and a love even Gatsby himself would have admired.
From the photographer, Carla Atley: Although my couple Alea and Francois only wanted 4 hours of their wedding professionally photographed, I’m glad I got to cover those 4 hours of the day because they put so much work into organising the ceremony and reception. Alea’s sister (who was a bridesmaid) enjoys photography, so she covered the ‘getting ready’ photos before the ceremony.
The groom, Francois works for an events hire company and he and his wife sourced pieces for their wedding months leading up to their day. Their theme was “The Great Gatsby”, and they really went all out. Alea’s sister was the graphic designer for all her invites, place settings, and general signs/posters at the wedding. The whole wedding was very based on the art deco period.
The bride’s dress was an Anna Campbell Dress and the bridesmaids (who are all Alea’s sisters) wore Adiranna Papell dresses. The bridesmaids also had beautiful corsage flowers on their wrists instead of a bouquet. The flowers for the whole event were just so beautiful. The florist really carried on the theme of Great Gatsby and added springs of pearls and feathers into the reception centrepieces, the brides bouquet and the bridesmaids corsages. The ceremony and reception was on the South Perth foreshore so all the guests got to take in the Perth city skyline as the party got underway.
