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.
The WOW-factor is most definitely served when you enter The Loft; from the panelled corner to the bare brick walls, this is industrial heaven. To make the welcome even more dazzling, there were beautiful calligraphy signs and large light-up letters marking our arrival.
If you click through to the JJ Studios website you’ll be lost in their incredible spaces – not just studios may I add! They cover beach, rustic, botanical, grand and sleek spaces across the country all with interior-envy-inducing style. They predominantly offer locations for commercial shoots and events, but from a wedding perspective we list 4 of their London locations and they’re pretty ace.
From the first stages of planning to the big day itself, their dedicated (and super friendly!) events team will work with you to create your perfect day, to realise your vision and make your celebration absolutely perfect.
So take a little stroll through our collection!

There are so many wonderful ideas to take from this day and I could have shared ALL the images captured by Maxeen Kim Photography, but I hope this small selection is enough to get those pin fingers twitching.
Lots of love…
