Opulent Designer Wedding Style Shoot
I sent Abigail of Abigail Bloom Cake Company, a few Pinterest photos a couple of weeks before the shoot and when she showed up, it was as though her cake had walked right out of the pictures and into my shoot. This wedding cake was hand finished by Abi with roses and petals and special rose features on the different tiers. It was a perfect setting for the 3-tiered ivory cake to take centre stage in some of the shots! In another setting we used the delightful cakes from Ty Couture Cakes – I love how up to the minute and stylish gold is right now, but I wanted to take a different slant to this trend! Ty’s cakes were indeed opulent large and certainly creative and colourful. Setting the wedding cake alight with the gold and silver cake and then the cake with bright red flowers interspersed between the layers of cake.
The 2 photographers for the shoot had to be different in their styles – Tai from Love-Exposed Photography is an award-winning photographer. He is dedicated and knows exactly how to get the money shot each and every time. He agreed to be my 1st on hand photographer and was able to get his usual feel for the stunning photographs I knew he would get for me, and new to the wedding photography scene was Joe from J Hitch who I felt showed a passion for the work and the creative detail, again his photographs showed a creative side. We were lucky to have Justina Rude to record the day for us with and her brilliant cinematography can be seen on my website, and Mary who was creative director of the video editing.
I was able to created two stunning looks for our gorgeous fresh-faced new super models who rocked in front of the camera. They have fallen in love with the bridal scene and have promised to use me to create their weddings when the time comes. In the mean time I have now managed to rebrand and re create my website in order to demonstrate my talent and eye for every detail as a luxury wedding consultant with the flair for the opulence and creativity, and the experience for the bigger and bolder than average weddings and events. I feel fully inspired to work with brides and grooms who want that extra ‘something else’, something out of the ordinary, an extra flair with a fully charged creative essence to ensure whether the event is on a small scale or a full production, that I work with the couple in mind, and work to a standard not necessarily to a price which is the mantra I chant as I go about my daily work as a London Wedding and Event Planner.
“We have been sharing this fantastic style shoot over the past few weeks, – as it was such an inspiration and such a brilliant infusion of wedding professionals that this couldn’t all be showcased in the one article. So stay tuned, keep checking in with us and we hope you enjoy our work. Big Hugs – Shola”
