Deco inspired, modern London wedding at Stanley Halls… 

Deco inspired London wedding…

If you are planning a London wedding then you’ll gonna love this Art Deco inspired bridal shoot set at Stanley Halls – a Grade II listed Edwardian arts venue.

The impressive space with marble stairs, theatre seats and stunning jade tiles made the perfect backdrop for this modern bridal shoot. Over to Clara from Styled for Love to tell us more about the shoot and the suppliers involved…

Where did you get your inspiration from? 

When photographer Cat Arwel asked me to collaborate on this shoot, she had already secured the unique London venue, and when I visited Stanley Halls I understood why she was so drawn to the location – the fabulous features such as marble stairs, theatre seating and beautiful jade tiles made for such an inspiring backdrop. I knew straight away that these elements would lend themselves to a Deco inspired concept, translated in a modern way for a stylish couple. The jade tiles were the start of the distinctive contemporary colour scheme and the introduction of polished metals, velvet and curved accents complemented the venue’s aesthetic.

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

Some of the wonderful creative team behind the collaboration were existing industry contacts while other members were new connections made through Instagram.

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.
