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.

So you may have spotted that this week is dedicated to our recent Tropics in the City styled shoot which took place at the incredible Wimbourne House.

We talked you through the inspiration behind the shoot on Monday, the full shebang was shown on Wednesday (including a fab piece by stationery legends Cutture showing the design process behind creating our tropical suite) and today we’re chatting beauty with Jo from The Hair & Makeup Atelier!

We simply love working with Jo, not only is she so much fun to be around (great for the wedding morning ladies!) but she also translates our shoot briefs to perfection.

We really loved pulling together the looks for this shoot, so we wanted to share with you how to recreate this city bridal vibe. If luxe skin and voluminous hair are what you’re after for your big day then you’re going to want to make some notes.

I’ve also included some behind-the-scenes snaps by Rebbeca Goddard Photography from the shoot – enjoy!

Tropics In The City at Wimbourne House

Coco Editorial:

At Wimbourne House in East London, you can absolutely let your imagination run wild… And that’s what we did. Channeling the hot, sultry tropics for our City Chic styled shoot, this vast loft space provided us with so much inspiration. From the man’s corner complete with brick wall, boxing gloves and a gym horse (because every Groom needs one on their wedding day right…?) to the elegant grey paneled ‘room’ with the most beautiful parquet floor; this studio-space-come-wedding-venue was the perfect canvas for our vibrant styling.

To us, Tropics in the City meant industrial vibes, flashes of pink, luscious botanicals and hot love…
