Sparkly and Festive Downton Abbey Inspired Styled Bridal Shoot

Downton Abbey Christmas Wedding Shoot (11)

I have to admit that I’ve never seen an episode of Downton in my life, making me feel like an oddball in the realm of modern television viewing. I must remedy that some day! But I do love the era and its styling, so this shoot was a real ‘must feature’ for me. I love the elegantly festive tones of golds and blues, coupled with the romantic soft lights of the candles dotted around. This is opulent Yuletide, but I also think it would be just gorgeous for a post-Christmas crisp weather January wedding, as well as a cosy do in December.

The Story Behind this Vintage Christmas Elegance Shoot, by Gilly Keat, Wedding Planner

“Downton Abbey encapsulates the timeless era that is the 1920s. The hit ITV drama perfectly exhibits the chic British glamour and luxurious décor of the time. Soon after the release of the hit Hollywood blockbuster The Great Gatsby, we have seen a sudden rise in Gatsby style celebration themes. We wanted to edge away from the traditional Gatsby glitz, and instead showcase a blend of vintage 1920s sophistication and modern simplicity. Using a mix of cool duck-egg blue tones with warm pastel pinks, infused with flashes of gold, Charlotte Munro and I created a look that celebrates elegance and class – perfect for a Christmas London wedding.”
