Debate rages (well, at least in some circles) about whether the ‘Great American Novel’ has been written or remains to be committed to print. However, if there’s a leading contender for this prestigious prize, it must surely be F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
This tale of ambition, unrequited love, decadence and despair is set against the stylish backdrop of the Jazz Age. A cautinaory tale about the futility of the American Dream.
Cocktail parties, late night extravagances and boat houses form an aesthetic that’s as important to the novel as any of the characters.
It’s also the inspiration for incredibly stylish weddings. Feathers, art deco stylings, impeccable bobs, flappers – it’s a timeless look that’s as elegant and classy now as it was then.
And here in Portugal, we’ve got the destinations to match. Gothic mansions overlooking the ocean, beachside palaces, and vintage cocktail lounges all fit seamlessly with The Great Gatsby look.
