There’s nothing I love more than a colourful bridal party. Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you these gorgeous Dia Do Los Muertos brides from Lisa Gigante Photography who wanted to create something colourful and unique for her latest shoot.
The reasoning for this shoot is the fact I never get a chance, unfortunately, to shoot a wedding that would be classed as ‘really off the wall’ and so I thought I’d break the mould (I did a steampunk themed bridal shoot last year) and have a bit of fun, still bridal but with the colours of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos theme. I love the colours.
The flowers and the look of the face painting.. Its amazing and the suppliers I asked were very excited to be involved. To the point the lady that supplied the silk flower head pieces was thrilled to be able to make something a bit ‘different’ for a change.
The dress designer I used last year in the steampunk shoot, made my wedding dress too (which is featured being worn by one of the models!). So aims and inspirations is purely to show another side of bridal… a bit of fun and some raging colours outside of the usual ivories and cremes that we are still seeing at the moment.
How gorgeous do these dresses by David Western Couture Bridal look against the colourful flowers?
