Black And White With A Dash Of Pink

Black And White With A Dash Of Pink

Classy and absolutely fabulous was the statement to be made by this modern and striking colour palette. Design, stying and flowers were by Afmena Events, specialists in bespoke design and decor. Their vision was to create a concept that would incorporate classical and contemporary elements with a modern flair. 

The setting for this styled shoot was Altitude 360, located at Westminster's tallest building, offering a modern and bright blank canvas for the creative styling of Afmena Events, also the hosts for the shoot. 

Alline of Beatrici Photography remarkably captured the famous 360 degree views of the capital of London, that are such a unique feature of the venue. With her photojournalism approach, Alline beautifully documented every detail. From the couture, hand made hair accessory by Bespoke Vintage Castle, to the flawless makeup by Faces of Bodin, perfectly complimented by hair styling from Nicole of Oban Beauty. Every image helps to piece together the story of this bold couple who dared to be unconventional, and beautifully so, with their black themed wedding cakes by the talented TY Couture Cakes. 

This shoot was brimming with talent from some of London's finest wedding vendors. With the added finishing touches from handmade menu cards by The White Card Company and bespoke treats from Something Sweeter, the stage was set for the beautiful bride and her handsome groom wearing a tailored suit by none other than Kwame Koranteng.
