A Beautiful 1920s Inspired Wedding with a Barn Reception


Today’s fabulous wedding from Die Hochzeitsfotografen is filled with the kind of elegant, vintage-inspired fashion and beautiful portraits that make me sigh in wonder from beginning to end. After all, what could be more lovely than a 1920s inspired celebration with an emotion-filled traditional church ceremony and a barn reception?

An Elegant 1920s Inspired Wedding with a Barn Reception

Add in an abundance of soft, romantic blooms; the most glamorous bridal look complete with finger waves and a first dance that Fred & Ginger would have been proud of, and you have my idea of the perfect wedding! Here are a few words from stylish bride Evelyn “We love the 20’s. It’s such a special and glamorous era. This inspired our wedding day’s theme. We choose pastel colours for our German / Italian wedding.”

Glamorous Silver Bridal Shoes

Evelyn choose a stunning Yolan Cris dress which she found at DA VINCI Brautmoden in Stuttgart that perfectly matched their 1920’s glamour infused day. And whilst she chose a sparkly clip for her hair, she also went for the quintessential accessory for any bride…..

“I tried many dresses including the classy ‘princess dress’. I choose this beautiful dress because I wanted it to be different and just something special. My veil was a soft silk tulle, very simple but it suited my exceptional dress.”

Scent is such a powerful evoker of memories, so don’t underestimate the importance of choosing just the right one, as Evelyn did, for your big day, …..

“I chose Coco Chanel, I like this scent very much. I was impressed that even my chosen perfume fits into this time.”

Glamorous Bridal Updo and the perfect perfume

As the saying goes, “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world”, and Evelyn rocked some of the most glamorous heels I have ever seen…..

“I was thrilled when I saw my bouquet by Still-leben and the great arrangements of flowers. I had a loosely tied bouquet with less flowers.”

And groom Giuseppe looked super dapper in his Hugo Boss tuxedo, a timeless look that perfectly complimented his glamorous Bride. To finish off his look, and give that hint of old world elegance I talked about in this post about styling your groom vintage, Giuseppe paired a bow tie and braces with black patent shoes. Evelyn tells us a little about the proposal and how they met…..

“Giuseppe worked in a bar as a bartender where we met for the first time. I was a guest and we fell in love. Unexpectedly at home Giuseppe got down on one knee and proposed. We were engaged two years before we got married.”

“We chose Steinbachhof, Vaihingen as our venue as it is near our residence. It is idyllically situated in the countryside and has a special flair through the vineyards. We felt very comfortable here. Especially the children, they had such fun outdoors. Because it was a traditional mix with modern barn we had less decoration. We only hung huge pompoms at the pier.”

Pearls of Wedding Wisdom from the Bride…

“My biggest advice – Take plenty of time for the planning stage!”

For their first dance Evelyn and Giuseppe chose a Russian waltz ‘Gramofon’ by Eugen Doga.

“Live music was important for me because I am a musician myself. Similar music from the 20’s was played by Rhythm and Tunes – Jazz, Charleston and Swing.”

Tell us a little bit about your photographers…

“For our photographers we did not have to look far. We knew immediately that it should be Die Hochzeitsfotografen – Angelika + Artur. We love their style and the naturalness in their pictures. Both are so professional and cater to every need. We got good advice and had a lot of fun with them.”
