Isn’t there an incredible sense of celebration with the bright bold colours of this Mexican fiesta wedding inspiration shoot? A talented team headed to Cactus Country cactus farm to create a shoot packed full of wedding ideas, Photographer Neiyo noting, “The inspiration behind this shoot is our love for the unconventional wedding with a Mexican fiesta twist.”
Neiyo teamed up with stylist Winne Q, gown designer Karen Willis Holmes, floral designer Rutherglen Florist, makeup artist Emily Wodonga Beauty Room, hair stylist Lia from Boudoir Hair, stationer Santiago Sunbird, model Sarah Mcleod Nibbs and Complete Function Hire to create a Mexican fiesta inspired ceremony and reception setup and take advantage of the golden light that hit the cactus farm at sunset.
Neiyo notes, “There were lots of reds, fuchsias, orange and yellow with succulents and cacti popping in between which set a bright and still romantic tone to the shoot.”
“An abundance of colourful floral garlands mixed with ribbon was created as a bright ceremony backdrop which carried through to a table setting nestled within a cove of cacti!”
“The beautiful location was set just outside Shepparton at Cactus Country which was the perfect backdrop for any wedding. With a vast range of beautiful cacti small and large it was a beautiful contrast to the femininity of the gowns provided by Karen Willis Holmes.”
Santiago Sunbird created a watercolour stationery suite that tied in with the beautiful colours of the flowers and decor.
Rutherglen Florist set up beautiful, bright floral arrangements, Neiyo remarking “Casually set up on a crate table were colourful blooms of Dahlias, Chrysanthemums, and craspedias, skull vases and gorgeous mini plants from the cactus farm.”
“When the sun set that day the golden light set an amazing warmth to the photos that we couldn’t get enough of.”
Photographer Neiyo notes, “My style of shooting is very much slightly overexposed and natural light. I like the soft brightness romantic feel when it comes to creating images. We waited until the sun set for the golden light to create that amazing warmth to the photos and that beautiful backlight to Sarah’s hair that we couldn’t get enough of.”
