How to Style a Loft Space Wedding Venue

I have a major crush on loft style spaces so when I came across the JJ Studios portfolio back in 2015 I knew I had to have them in our collection. More than that, I knew I had to shoot in one of their spaces.

Tropics in the City was born and we chose Wimbourne House as our base. It’s still one of my favourite shoots we’ve worked on – bold, bright and sexy it shows you how to add the current trend of brights and greenery to a wedding. But today isn’t about this shoot or this look, it’s about showing you how versatile a blank canvas space can be – in particular Wimbourne House.

Wimbourne House is home to one of London’s premiere photographic studios, located in Shoreditch. When I first visited, I knew this space was something very special indeed – a blank canvas London wedding venue like no other.

Back in November I attended The Hub held at Wimbourne House, a fabulous day for wedding entrepreneurs to gather, learn and meet. It’s always such an honour to be invited to this event and the lady behind it, Kiki-Sunshine Boonwaat, is just an all-round beautiful person.

Kiki had curated an incredible team of suppliers to style the space for the day – rather similar to a wedding set up there was an area for the speakers to address the audience (ceremony!), a gorgeous gathering of trestle tables for our delicious lunch (wedding breakfast!) and even a little spot for photos and chilling (party!).

The colours, florals and overall vibe were completely different to how we used the space and I was utterly smitten with it all. Delicate, pretty and soft, the palettes worked perfectly with the rawness of the venue.

Springtime at Fulham Palace

We may be in the full swing of Autumn, but our hearts are firmly in the Springtime with this gorgeous inspiration piece from London gem Fulham Palace

From pretty florals, yummy cocktails, backdrops for your photographs and centepieces galore, they’ve thought of it all. So if you’re considering a Spring wedding then this one’s for you.

Enjoy!

Notes from Fulham Palace

Why is Fulham Palace a perfect Spring venue..?

Set within 13 acres of rolling lawns and botanical gardens, Fulham Palace is the perfect setting for a wedding in the Spring months. The gardens are just coming into bloom and there are plenty of backdrops for the day, the wisteria on the main lawn is one of our personal favourites closely followed by the blossom lined path in our Walled Garden.

What touches and details suit a Spring wedding at Fulham Palace..?

It’s all about bringing the outside in for Spring weddings. These months are the perfect time of year to take full advantage of rustic details which can be just as pretty as more refined styling. We love the idea of palettes and crates for flowers, wooden table plans and natural herb infused cocktails.

Bhuti x The Bingham

Monday mornings – I’m sure we all have our own routines to kick-start our week right…?

Well last Monday I was well and truly thrown when I stepped away from the usual desk position and headed to the picturesque Richmond-upon-Thames, where apparently bhuti lies within…

The story starts with The Bingham. I absolutely adore this venue. It’s graced these pages many a time and it’s been a personal bookmark for many a family occasion; so when I was asked if I wanted to make another visit to try out their brand new Spa called bhuti, there was only one answer.

Bhuti & The Bride

bhuti is an eco and wellbeing escape located a stones throw from the hotel. Offering a range of natural and organic spa treatments, bhuti is a perfect extension of The Bingham’s luxury ethos and offers a range of treatments designed to ensure you feel radiant from within. From yoga classes and nutrition workshops, to thermal detox massages and inner peace treatments, bhuti offers a treatment for everyone covering a range of Complementary therapies including Reiki, Acupuncture and Homeopathy, all carried out using only the finest natural and organic products proudly made in England.

You may have a small inclination by now that planning a wedding can be teensy bit stressful, so I personally think taking time out – whether it’s with your husband-to-be, with your girlfriends or just by yourself – is essential. You can therefore visit bhuti for a pick me up throughout your wedding planning or enjoy some pampering on the eve or morning of your big day. The stresses of wedmin and to-do lists can quite simply be left at the door as soon as you step into the idyllic and tranquil surroundings.
