For her August 2011 marriage to guitarist Jamie Hince, of rock band The Kills, supermodel Kate Moss drew inspiration from the classic American novel The Great Gatsby, set in Long Island, New York during the Roaring 1920s.

Scenes from Fitzgerald’s novel and images from Jack Clayton’s 1974 film adaptation starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow helped to guide the spirit, setting, and  style of Kate and Jamie’s beautiful wedding celebration.


Mario Testino’s photographs in Vogue of the Moss-Hince wedding day take one’s breath away.  In lieu of Long Island, the nuptials took place in the English village of Southrop.  Enjoy!
