Havana Nights at Fins Plantation House

If you’re a fan of bold colours and fresh, tropical styling, you’re going to LOVE this Havana-inspired collaboration at Fins Plantation House. 

When the Hampton Event Hire team announced the launch of a new collection, we were pretty excited – and their Havana range definitely didn’t disappoint. These guys teamed up with Ngaire from Event Stylist & Co and a bunch of talented local suppliers for a “Havana Nights” themed shoot in the Fins garden, and it was epic. We’re talking margarita stations, colourful lounge booths, an oversized swing and a picture-perfect ceremony overlooking the Tweed Valley. Sounds like our kind of party.

From the vibrant colour palette to the lush florals, soft silk ribbons and uber-glam bridal style, there’s plenty of modern wedding styling inspo to be found below. Keep scrolling to see all of the beautiful details (captured by Cloud Catcher Studio and Anchored Cinema), as we chat all things Havana with Hampton Event Hire’s creative designer, Emily:

Can you tell us about the inspiration behind the shoot?

We were wanting to offer something completely new and a little bit different to our wonderful clients, so the Havana collection was born. With this in mind – and with the beautiful Fins at Plantation House as our backdrop – we started to think of styling ideas for our shoot. We drew inspiration from the venue, the colours of the furniture and the floral designs of local suppliers. The Havana range features a tropical palette of sky blue, papaya and quartz pink with accents of white, so we wanted to tie everything together to ensure a complementary look. We chose to offset the vibrant colours of the collection with neutrals, blushes, soft purples and blues throughout the floral arrangements and installations, with some richer orange and rust tones used selectively.

Threats of storms loomed over all day, but we were lucky as the weather held off and created a very dramatic backdrop! It is truly such a versatile collection with endless styling opportunities, and we are so excited to share it with you. We had the pleasure of working with some of the best suppliers in the business, and hope you all love it as much as we do!
