London urban wedding shoot inspired by modern tribal design
The inspiration for this shoot stemmed from the notion that we all have our own tribe, and in London that is our own urban tribe, which thrives on a urban wedding beauty! Taking inspiration from the bold colours and geometric patterns steeped through tribal influences really came to life with shoot as we celebrated the fun of colour against the urban warehouse style of Brixton East.
Be Bright and Bold
The colour palette was driven by bold and bright with blues and greens being the main theme throughout the shoot. Ananya Cards created vibrant stationery utilising geometric patterns to bring the tribal feel which was then carried through with subtle embossing on the napkins and the chevron table runner. The backs of the chairs were completed with dream catchers created by Soiree Stylists.
It’s All About The Flowers
Who said an urban wedding had to be industrial and cold?! The flowers carried on the bold and beautiful theme with Emma Soulsby Flowers creating a stunning hanging floral arrangement suspended above the table, the greenery was dotted with bright blooms which filled the room with an amazing scent. Smaller arrangements were placed down the centre of the table to offset the bright tableware and were mimicked on the gold and glass cake trolley. Our bride’s bouquet was elegantly wild with a delicate mix of greenery and blooms, all beautifully tied up with silk ribbon by Kate Cullen
A Stunning Geometric Wedding Cake
The cake crafted by GC Couture had hand crafted dream-catcher designs with gold threading and was finished off with a blue and green geometric icing band around each layer. The move away from the traditional round wedding cake and creating something with more angular features but still elegant is just what our urban wedding loving couple is looking for!
The Bridal Details
Bridal details are key to our style conscious bride so handmade hair accessories and jewellery were created by Beverly Edmondson and were the perfect accompaniment to the gorgeous and modern bridal separated created by Kate Edmondson Bridal Couture. The first look was a flowing tulle skirt with a high necked halter style top with gold neck lace detail. The second look was a more refined sleek look with a sculpted bodice and a puddle train.
And of course a shoot like this can’t be pulled together without an epic team:
