Is anyone as obsessed with Downtown Abbey as I am? I think it’s one of my top 3 favorite TV shows of all time, and that’s saying something! I am so excited to share this Downton Abbey wedding inspiration with you today. Even though Downton Abbey has come to a close, the show’s stories and impeccable style continue to captivate our hearts. This Downton Abbey wedding inspiration at Riverwood Mansion is perfect for any bride who wants to bring the twenties-era fashion of Downton Abbey’s most glamorous weddings into a luxe and classy modern wedding.
Nashville’s Riverwood Mansion was the perfect location for this Downton Abbey wedding inspiration. The mansion dates back to the 1700s and the elegant rooms and great hall brought us right back to British estate.
The centerpiece of the shoot is the bride’s Jenny Packham gown. Packham is a British designer and her beautiful jeweled gown puts a modern spin on the Downton fashions. The bridal look was completed by a beautiful hairpiece. The groom’s white-tie attire would certainly be approved by the Dowager Countess!
Our incredible four-tiered soft white wedding cake, draped with perfect sugar roses, was modeled after Lady Mary’s wedding cake, and was a work of art to behold. The bride and groom sipped on champagne and bourbon, and the elegant table’s luxe linens and candlesticks would fit right in at one of Mr. Carson’s dinners.
Our real couple Audrey and Patrick shared so many sweet moments during the day, including a touching first look. They also wrote love letters to each other and read them aloud, which resulted in laughs all around!
I hope this post inspires you if you’re planning your own Downton wedding, or if you just want an excuse to watch all the seasons again!
