The Great Gatsby theme has become a mainstay in wedding style over the last year, and we love to see a couple’s unique take on the glamorous trend. Literary loving couple Clare and James envisioned a rustic Great Gatsby inspired wedding in Surrey with hints of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. The result is absolutely dreamy, with sequin accents and an overall whimsical elegance. Photographer Murray Clarke beautifully captured the bride’s impeccable details, as well as the stunning light that shone over Gildings Barn as they shared their first intimate moments as husband and wife.
