I can’t think of a better week to be sharing our Tropics in the City inspiration with you… With temperatures set to soar to 30 degrees it’s certainly going to be feeling HOT. And that’s exactly what this botanical City Chic shoot is all about.

When we started to design the look we wanted industrial vibes, flashes of pink, luscious botanicals and hot love…

Alongside Katrina, resident Wedding Planner and my Coco & Kat sidekick, we worked with an incredibly talented team including Rebecca Goddard PhotographyHiding in the City flowers and Perfect Day Bride who came swathed in acres of Charlie Brear tulle.

Before we share the full shoot and a new film by Insta Wedding with you, we thought we’d share a snippet of the mood boards we put together for each element. Much like your own wedding day, you want to document your thoughts and ideas to ensure your styling is consistent, dreamy and reflective of you… So here’s my inspiration behind Tropics in the City; a colourful, HOT, chic wedding.

Head back later this week for two more instalments from the Tropics in the City editorial… We’ve got the full shebang on Wednesday with a yummy makeup focus feature from Jo of The Hair & Makeup Atelier.

I can’t wait to show you what we got up to in the incredible space that is SNAP Studios at Wimbourne House

Lots of love!
