African Fusion Skyloft Styled Shoot

African Fusion Skyloft styled shoot London backdrop

I go through phases where I become more wedding-obsessed than ever. Having browsing through a couple of wedding magazines earlier and writing about this styled shoot, made me fall in love with weddings all over again. There is so much inspiration – how do you choose? This African Fusion Skyloft styled shoot was put together for the alternative bride and groom looking for the ideal venue for their wedding.

When looking for the perfect venue for this original styled shoot, the skyloft at Altitude, a unique warehouse loft-style space with remarkable views of London, was the obvious choice. The exposed reclaimed brickwork and wooden floors, provided a striking contrast to the elegant floral and venue design created by Afmena Events.

Coordinator, Ayo Elizabeth organised the shoot to promote the venue for the alternative bride seeking a contemporary space of their wedding. With the help of Afmena Events and a number of industry experts, they created an elegant, modern and quirky shoot.

One of my favourite parts of this is having the city of London as the backdrop of this shoot. London is a stunning city, one of my favourites as it is for many others. Being a diverse city with the world’s best sights and attractions, having this backdrop complimented the shoot elegantly.

In addition to this, the vendors wanted to incorporate colourful fabrics in honour of African culture. This was achieved with handmade cushions by OTandO Home Interiors using the very finest of Nigerian lace as well as Ankara-print bunting by Afmena Events, celebrating all things African and all things British.

The bespoke tailored suits were provided by none other than INDIVISUAL by Keye and these matched perfectly the bridal gown supplied by Gbemi Okunlola, Britain’s youngest bridal wear designer and creative director of Alonuko.

With a delicate cake design by QCakes, beautiful natural hairstyling by Dionne Smith and make up by Menoy Transforms, the finishing touches were made complete, perfectly documented and captured by Photography by Abi & Urban Cinematography.
