Day of the Dead Shoot - weheartpictures-0081

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.
