I’m always so thrilled to show Erica from Mr & Mrs Unique’s styled shoots on Way Out Wedding. They’re incredible! And this one just steals the show with its hot, hot colours, and a thousand inspirations for styling the Dia de los Muertos meets Frida wedding bash to win them all!!
The Story of the Shoot by Erica from Mr & Mrs Unique
I run a wedding directory Mr & Mrs Unique, which focuses on unique, eclectic and creative wedding suppliers. Throughout the year, I try to get together with a selection of listed suppliers to create photoshoots, as it gives us the opportunity to experiment and spread our creative wings. I encourage suppliers to push their boundaries… as long as it’s not traditional, anything goes!
Towards the end of last year, I met up with the lovely Katherine, who owns Arabian Tents, and we decided to get our heads together to create a photoshoot that included some of her new Latin American marquees, which were heavily inspired by Mexican and Argentinian influences.
Literally a few weeks later, I was speaking to Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes and she wanted to create a Day of the Dead inspired wedding cake… so along with Arabian Tents’ new marquee interiors, we had the perfect union for a Mexican Day of the Dead/Frida Kahlo inspired shoot.
Throw in some amazing photography skills from Hector and Charlie from We Heart Pictures, some lush OTT flowers from The Basement Florist, beautiful make up by The Beauty Aisle, gorgeous hair by Simply Beautiful Wedding Hair, floral stationery from Russet & Gray, some eye-catching gems from Polly Wales Fine Jewellery, bright textiles from Montes & Clark, not forgetting the two amazing dresses from Wilden Bride and Minna… we had an incredible team working on the shoot!
