There is no doubt that we’ve had a little love affair with Downton Abbey over the years and have been eagerly anticipating this week’s release of the movie on September 20 – in case you don’t have your calendar marked. We anticipate the silver screen release to fan the flames for nostalgic era inspired Downtown Abbey theme weddings and quite frankly can’t wait. To envision the Crawley wedding in all it’s Edwardian elegance is a daydream we welcome with open arms. So when White Avenue Weddings and Karen Tran Events joined forces for this gem, we instantly fell head over heels. It’s perfection and seamless storytelling all the way. So while we anxiously await the movie premier, pour some tea and escape into Joseph Matthew Photography gallery for all the Edwardian era pretty you can handle.
Nostalgic Era Inspired Downton Abbey Theme Weddings
While we have seen some nostalgic era inspired Downtown Abbey theme weddings since being able to binge watch the series, none have captured our attention quite like this. Taking place at the exquisite Dorchester Hotel in London this UK team captures the look of a truly beautiful era gone by – English style of course. From the sheer feminine brilliance of a Claire Pettibone wedding dress to perfectly polished plate settings amongst a pale palette of wedding flowers by Karen Tran Events. Aa little sparkle and a lot of high style spills into each frame to delight your bridal fancies and wedding day dreams. No matter what wedding style you choose to say “I do” to there are elements that are steal-worthy and most certainly Pin-worthy. It’s been nine years since Downton Abbey first debuted and quickly became the international smash hit that helped reshape the world of fashion. Just like any sensation, there was an incredible trickle down into weddings in the most sophisticated and glamorous of ways. Susannah Buxton, Downtown Abbey’s original fashion designer, is responsible for the impeccably feminine and stylish WW1 and post WW2 eye candy, and these looks continue to spill over into everyday contemporary life. Dresses are lavished with lace and intricate details; oversized hats and coats are so en vogue and sparkly hairpieces have hit the streets and the wedding aisles.
