Concrete Jungle Styled Shoot - Malarkey Cakes London

Malarkey Cakes and I teamed up to create this really special, unique and fun tropical styled wedding reception shoot! We planned the entire shoot ourselves which was in equal measures exciting and very stressful but that made it all the more rewarding when we witnessed the whole thing come together at the shoot location B.Loved Hive in The Biscuit Factory. However, I have decided that from now on for all future shoots I will enlist the help of a wonderful human that comes in the shape of a planner/stylist/organised angel who's job it is to be fabulous at sourcing materials and whipping people into shape and I will be ready and waiting with my camera haha!

With that said though, the fact that the entire shoot was organised by us entirely gave us total freedom with which to style to our hearts content and that was super, super fun! Especially when your collaboration partner is your big sister! :)

We enlisted the help of the glorious flower wizards Herbert & Isles to who I have worked with before on this bridal editorial and are now my go to for big, bold and colourful

flowers to create some impressive bold bouquets and source tropical foliage to complete the cake table and our carnation pink backdrop! The talented pair truly brought their A game and helped Katie to amp up her home made cake stands! We hired a gorgeous wooden Oak table and Bar from Anthology Vintage Hire - which was the perfect fit for the shoot and Paper Grace UK created the stunning pink and green palleted tropical stationary suite which I absolutely fell in love with! Danielle was our incredible, modern bride for the day rocking the Marquise Bridal silk separates stocked at Halo & Wren Bridal and we had make up and hair by the uber talented Rianna Plummer!

we are absolutely delighted that the shoot was featured on Mr & Mrs Unique's blog in November of 2017 which can be seen here! Now all we need is for a wonderful couple to organise a tropical themed wedding and book us all!

Please let us know what you think of the shoot in the comments below, it would mean the world to us to hear your feedback! :)
