MEXICAN FIESTA STYLED SHOOT
Recently Love Carli were asked to collaborate along side a group of talented ladies from the local wedding industry to create a colourful fiesta wedding scene utilising the vibrant indoor space at Casa De Playa on Mornington’s Main Street. Directed by Verity from Miss Pickle Photography, the idea behind the styled shoot was to explore the potential of Mornington’s urban areas as a wedding backdrop in contrast to the beach and winery weddings it is well known for.
The Mexican themed venue with it’s exposed brickwork, graffitied walls and mismatched furniture called for bright colours, an abundance of florals and a little ‘day of the dead’ to up the fun. The upstairs function space was set and styled by Kristina from Dream Catcher Weddings with lush blooms by Hello Blossoms and custom stationery by Love Carli (us!). Real life couple Ashlee and Nick shared some intimate moments for us, looking the part courtesy of Erin Clare Bridal, Mickey Blue, Helen from HC Make Up and Hair and Minzenmay.
For the shoot we created a wedding invitation, personalised menus, ‘gracias’ cards for the cacti wedding favours and escort flags which sat in tequila shots encouraging guests to ‘take a shot, then take a seat’ at the bar upon arrival. To help set the scene, all our custom stationery featured colourful florals inspired by Mexican embroidery and textiles. Our favourite element though, was our hand painted ‘til death do us part’ sign on stained plywood.
We all had so much fun working together on this shoot and the delicious food left over at the end that needed to be eaten was an excellent bonus.
