Cuban wedding ideas from the 4 Counties Wedding Award winners“After being frozen in time for five decades, Cuba is opening its exotic door to the world. As one of the biggest new trends; the countries bold colours and bohemian vibe will filter across wedding themes; perfect for couples looking for something unique.”

“Only meeting briefly at the Wedding Awards Gala in November all suppliers embraced the concept and major effort was made. The sun shone and salsa music played. With the backdrop of the rustic barn and the river, a fun, colourful look was created that shows the unity of different cultures and traditions including the money dance, needed more so now than ever. Vive le diferencia!””

“It was important to us to work on a shoot which felt different to many other styled shoots around, and after Tracy gave us her Cuba idea we wanted to embrace the bohemian spirit of Cuba and still create the sense of a destination – even in Bedford!”

Cuban wedding ideas from the 4 Counties Wedding Award winners“We particularly loved all the festoon lights and candles, as well as all the bright jewel tones in the flowers and ferns. Our models were chosen for their fantastic range of tattoos too, again giving a rock ‘n’ roll / bohemian edge to the shoot. Tom and I believe couples should be themselves on their wedding day, and hope this shoot inspires couples to step aside from what a wedding ‘norm’ might be and express themselves in their wedding planning – much like this blog!’”

Cake – La Belle Cake Company

“When Tracy first approached me with the idea for the shoot I was so excited as I knew it was a theme where I could really get my creative juices flowing. When researching Cuba I knew it was all about bright, bold colours and that’s the direction I wanted to take. Speaking with the florist I knew I also wanted to add some fern detailing too to compliment the florals.”

Cuban wedding ideas from the 4 Counties Wedding Award winners“I chose to do a tall design as this would carry off the bright colours. Instead of added to much detail to the cake I added textures instead – marble detail on the top tier and embossed detail on the gold tier. This was all bought together by one large single sugar flower and ferns.”
