How to create a Stylish Black and Gold Gatsby Styled Wedding


We love a themed wedding here at The Celebrant Directory, and part of choosing a Celebrant-led ceremony means that you can include elements of your styling within your bespoke wedding ceremony.

If you’re a literature fan, planning a new years eve wedding or simply love elegance, this is the inspiration you’ve been looking for!

The Celebrant Directory member Kelly Garrick shares with us this stunning styled shoot encompassing the most gorgeous glittering details – just wait until you see the cake!


Park Manor is a family run wedding venue.  A beautiful Grade II listed Georgian manor house built in 1870 set in the heart of Victoria Park, Warrington.  

The venue is a combination of old meets new and was the inspiration by Mark Lee Photography with Sands Design Shop dressing the room and Prague the venue manager to create the perfect luxurious memorable look.  

The Black and Gold theme was chosen to compliment the stylish and stand out venue by creating this uniquely timeless modern and sophisticated romantic almost Gatsby styled feel wedding shoot. 


Dark wedding details are infamously challenging to get correct.  But bringing together some of the North West’s most superb wedding suppliers, every attentive aspect generates the lavish art-deco glamourous atmosphere.

A classic colour scheme when its executed to perfection are ideal for a wintertime wedding and will provide your wedding with a stylish chic look and feel.

The Cake

Luxury weddings sometimes take a more is more tactic, without really taking time to use well-thought-out and imaginative features but presenting the amazingly romantic and stylish black and gold cake for those couples who want to stray away from the traditional wedding cake provides a unique and dreamy featured memorable moment.

Decor and Stationery 

Simple classy and super elegant black and gold table decorations with green garlands draped in fairy lights.  Nothing says glamour like incorporating elements of the flickering glow from the candles and the towering candelabra wows the atmosphere generating the dreamy romantic environment.   The fabulous, gorgeous details of the linens and napkins featuring the guests’ names carved in gold writing adds the touch of elegance.   


The ceremony area was styled with natural foliage to reflect synergy between here and the table design. Remember to disclose your colour scheme with your Celebrant as they’ll be happy to dress to compliment!

The Bride 

The bride model was described as blooming gorgeously flawless, her makeup and hair styled with a glamour and a Hollywood wave is seen wearing the 2021 best selling dress from the Lancashire wedding house and complimented with custom made black and gold exclusively spectacular shoes from the new glass slipper.
