Rich, tropical greens with luxurious golds for a modern colonialism styled shoot at The Boutique, London

In 2016 flowers won the internet. But it was the lush greenery of botanical styled shoots which really stole my heart. Today the greens are just divine… this is wedding style in fabulous colours to whisk you away to another world – and of course, to inspire your wedding! It’s lush and lovely and wonderfully on trend for 2017.

The Boutique – London’s newest wedding experience – was the location for our shoot.  Founders Tori Harris and Vicky Mallinson were inspired by this fusion of old and new creating a stunning space that is light and airy, nods to a ‘vintage’ style within the furniture but ultimately looking beautifully modern.

Their inspiration for the styling of The Boutique coming from the fruit du jour – the pineapple.  Traditionally a symbol of luxe and hospitality pineapple prints subtly adorn the walls of The Boutique. Taking this tropical touch a step further with flamingo prints featuring on the walls in the bathroom and water glasses.  The whole space has a air of luxury while remaining quirky and fun!

The Boutique was founded on a unique and modern concept – a bridal cooperative – where small, independent, local businesses can sell their products, run workshops, meet clients and support each other. In this essence wherever possible we used suppliers for the shoot from the stockists in the shop or other local suppliers.

The shoot fused rich, tropical greens with luxurious golds.  Soft feminine styling with modern hair accessories. Vicky of Victoria Millesime said of her 2017 collection which featured heavily in the shoot: “I wanted to take the botanical influence a step further from my previous collections fusing rich hues of gold, rose gold and copper in organic shapes creating beautiful, etherial hair accessories to perfectly compliment today’s modern bride.”
