Fictional Follies | Jay Gatsby + Daisy Buchanan

F. Scott Gerald is getting the Fictional Follies treatment this week, well really it's the Baz Luhrmann version of The Great Gatsby with the always amazing Leo and Cary Mulligan. But we would like to point out we loved this book way before the film came out, one of us even studied it at uni. Now we know it doesn't work out for these two but as with any of our fictional follies, when has that ever stopped us before.

We're purposely avoiding art deco and instead creating a wedding of modern opulence. We're keeping things light and pretty with shades of mint, peach and white with a gold accent. Everything is of the highest standard with little details across the entire day, now all you have to do is imagine you're there! 

Daisy's dressed in a Jenny Packham dress, who does beading so beautifully. Stunning accessories with touches of mint and a simple bouquet of white roses finish the look.

A touch of glamour is added to the escort cards with a smattering of glitter and the table is beautifully set with gold, white and mint crockery, gold cutlery and cut glass crystal glasses. But it's the extravagant dessert table and luxurious cake that your eye is drawn to.

The couple disappear for photographs overlooking the lake towards the green light, surrounded by feathers and flowers.

When they get back Gatsby lifts his glass in a toast and the rest of the evening is yours to enjoy!
