Urban jungle wedding inspiration at the Barbican Estate, London…

Where did you get your inspiration from?

Tim Dunk Photography… My favourite place in London is the Barbican Estate. I have wanted to shoot there for a while. The brutalist architecture, its immense size, the clean lines and curves which create such interesting light and shadow, and it’s ‘grey’, create the perfect storm for an atmospheric kind of photography. As if that isn’t enough, the Barbican then, out of nowhere, welcomes you into its beating heart; the green, abundance of the Conservatory.  That incongruity is what we wanted to bring into our shoot.

How did you find the suppliers who made this concept come to life?

Although I am Leeds based,  I am part of a large community of wedding industry suppliers nationwide.  I have built many great relationships.

I met our florist, Eram from Boom Blooms, at a photography workshop. We both really liked one another’s work and wanted to work together.

Via social media we contacted, Lara, the designer, Freya, the make up artist, and Heather, our model. Our aim was to bring a team together who were as excited by the drama of the space as us.

What details are your favourite, and why?

There are so many little nooks, and larger vistas, on the estate. With each turn, there is something new to see and document.

How did you meet?

Both of us come from Somerset, but weirdly we didn’t meet there. We actually met at Italia Conti Drama School, where we both trained as actors. 

How did you get engaged?

We got engaged on a trip to Loch Awe, in Scotland. Sonnie had booked the holiday, so I had the perfect cover. It was pouring with rain during a trek up to Avich waterfall and I almost delayed, because it was so stormy, but the waterfall is stunning and I went for it. As I went down on one knee the rain stopped and the sun came out. Magic!

Was there an overall theme to your day?

We played with ideas around Shakespeare’s plays and locations. All the tables were locations and all the guests had their own character. Our favourite was casting our 1yr old Nephew as Falstaff, a belching drunkard. 

Everything else was set around A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We tried as much as possible
