Mystical, Latin American Bridal Shoot Inspired by Madonna…

Moody, Vintage Madonna Vibes…

Today’s inspiration is brought to us by Lauren from French Made Cakes and a fantastic team of creative wedding suppliers. The shoot was inspired by Latin American and Andalusian cultures focusing on the religious and symbolic importance of Madonna.

We hand over to the team to talk more in-depth about what inspired this mystical, moody shoot…

This bridal inspiration shoot took place at the stunning Ringshall Grange in Suffolk, England. We imagined a solemn, passionate, devoted bride awaiting her husband to be. The colour palette dominated by purples (majestic colour that used be reserved for royalty and church), deep red, black and gold suggested a darker and moodier feel for the styling and stunning photography by Joanna from Joasis Photography.

The thought process behind the stationery taken directly from the ‘crying Madonna’ theme. Lou from Beyond Vintage pulled red out from the colour palette and experimented with watercolour, almost like blood stained teardrops onto the paper. Mixed with complimenting calligraphy and text fonts to complete the collection. Finished with hand dyed silk ribbon and a wax seal.

Inspiration…

I went to The Princess of Wales conservatory at Kew Gardens back in the summer in search of inspiration for new cake designs. I also have a love of architecture and love the trend for concrete cakes coming over from Australia at the moment. I knew I wanted to bring it all together in a shoot.

My Sister, Sophie (Sophie Lake Photography) suggested a wedding reception shoot with a cake table as a main feature, but to also focus on other key aspects of styling. We wanted to marry together big green leaves, concrete urban style, fun pink and copper, so the concrete jungle theme was born!

The main reason for choosing B Loved Hive as our venue was the amount of natural light. As a warehouse unit offered a perfect urban space for our jungle.

The inspiration for the shoot started with a love of teal and gold. I love the Jungle and Woodland themes but wanted to create something a bit more striking with a glam 70s feel, including leopard print. The bride for this shoot would not be a shrinking violet but a bit of a glamour girl who loves a bold print and a red lip.

After a visit to Paschoe house and seeing their gorgeous dining room wallpaper everything fell into place and a geometric feel was added to the look for the shoot.

My design concept was to create a wedding look that would work perfectly with a gorgeous hotel venue – something modern and yet inspired by the glamour of the 1970s and 1920s.

Lots of lush foliage was key to the look and I wanted to include lots of greenery and
