Cuban Dreams – Styled Wedding Shoot
Back in November 2016 we were over the moon to win the title of Best Cake Designer at the Four Counties Wedding Awards. One of the greatest things about these awards are the community that you go on to become a part of. Nothing shows this better than the Cuban Dreams styled shoot that the 2016 winners collaborated on.
The shoot was the brainchild of the founder of the awards, Tracy Butterfield. Tracy chose the Cuban theme as the countries bold colours and bohemian vibes will filter through 2017 and 2018 weddings.
Many of the suppliers had only met briefly at the awards ceremony but all the suppliers fully embraced the theme and the results speak for themselves.
The photographers were Lina and Tom Photography who both had a huge part in the artistic direction of the shoot. They had a clear vision of the direction they wanted the shoot to take and wanted the shoot to feel different to other styled shoots around. Festoon lights and candles with bright jewel tones in the flowers set the scene. The models were chosen for their fantastic tattoos, giving a rock ‘n’ roll vibe to the shoot.
It’s safe to say that on this day – Cuba well and truly came to Bedford.
