In the Mood for Hot Love: Moody Tropical Little Island Brewing Co Wedding Styled Shoot

This Little Island Brewing Co wedding styled shoot puts a dark and moody spin on the popular tropical wedding theme, with neon lights that electrify the dark and glamorous styling.

We’re absolutely thrilled with how this moody tropical wedding styled shoot at Little Island Brewing Co. turned out! We wanted to put a spin on a tropical wedding theme by electrifying it with neon lights and dark and moody styling, and our amazing team pulled off a truly spectacular set. The gorgeous details and dark, tropical mood were all beautifully captured by Andri Tei Photography.

Overlooking the sea in Changi Village, Little Island Brewing Co. is a popular wedding venue with space for up to 320 guests, beloved for its home-brewed craft beers on tap. With its coastal, laid back vibe, the venue was perfect for staging our moody tropical sets. Stylist Lalu of Wulala! brought the concept to life at the venue, in a rich, moody colour palette of velvety blacks, midnight purples, rich burgundies, deep greens, dark reds, and electric pops of hot pink, accented with a glamorous touch of gold.

She styled a gorgeous backdrop against the steel and copper vats of the brewery itself, with gold script by Trudy of Poptsie Paper Co on a black acrylic circle, framed with curved neon lights by Beyond Neon. Kayly of Bucket Full of Roses finished the backdrop with a stunning arrangement of wild, dark, tropical foliage and flowers in lush abandon, from monstera leaves to gilded orchids to black palm fronds.

Our talented real-life couple, Vera from LOVEBLUSH and Lawrence Ong, wore minimalist ensembles in keeping with the shoot’s laid-back and alternative vibe. Lawrence wore a dark suit by men’s bespoke tailor Stitched.sg, and Vera rocked a chic and architectural number with detachable off-shoulder detail by wedding gown designer Stitch x Stitch Co. Hair and makeup by the LOVEBLUSH team completed the looks. Vera carried a wild, tropical bouquet with wine-red roses and midnight purple calla lilies by Bucket Full of Roses.

Wulala! set the mood for an intimate wedding dinner on one of Little Island Brewing Co’s rustic wooden tables, styling it with moody floral centrepieces by Kayly, exotic tropical fruit, vintage bulbs, and tall dark candles in gold candle stands from Crate and Barrel for a touch of glamour. Deep purple candles, mirrored glass votives, and black linen napkins from Crate and Barrel accented the tablescape. The set was finished with gold-lettered leaf place cards by Trudy.

By the long bar with its many polished taps, the team styled a gorgeous dessert display with elegant treats by Charlene from The Dessert Party. An absolutely adorable meringue pineapple tower highlighted the tropical theme. Delicious gold-flecked earl grey macarons, lemon meringue tarts in dark chocolate cases, brownies, and blueberry cheesecake shots were arrayed temptingly on the shelves by the dessert table stylist, accented with props from Lalu and florals by Kayly. A neon acrylic sign playfully inscribed with “Gimme some sugar” finished our dessert display. The dark wedding cake also by The Dessert Party topped with tropical blooms took pride of place on a gold stand, embellished with lush floral arrangements and scribed acrylic.

All of us had so much fun creating the dark and moody vibe of this tropical styled shoot with its electrifying neon lights, and we hope that it inspires you with a different take on the popular tropical wedding trend!

Huge thanks to the incredible team!
