Downton Abbey Wedding Inspiration {Roundup}

January 5, 2015 - by Preeti

For those of you in the United States, Downton Abbey Season 5 begins tonight. I know I know, season 5 has been around for a while, you Brits are so lucky.

But here, we're just beginning the excitement and costume extravaganza of our family upstairs.

With Downton Abbey on my mind, I couldn't help but pick favorite photos from different styled shoots inspired by the show. Each of the shoots has been inspired by a different person in the show, so it's a lot of fun to see how the photographer and wedding team executed it.

Inspired by Sybil Crawley and Tom Branson's elopement

From Floral & Bloom Designs, the theme was: Our color scheme of blush, slate, and ivory only helped to reinforced the idea of a simple, yet regal affair—the tones were neutral, but with a flair of elegance, accented by silver accessories.

The wedding of Lady Mary Crawley and Mathew Crawley

True Bliss Photography shares, "My goal was to bring to life the excitement felt before a wedding back when men and woman weren’t allowed to ever be alone as well as the slightly uncomfortable anticipation but overall exultation of becoming husband and wife."
