Frida Kahlo Inspired Elopement

This summer we got a chance to collaborate with some amazing creatives in the wedding industry here in the Algarve.

Being a fan of Frida Kahlo and her work, we were so excited to shoot this Elopement inspired by the artist and a colourful Mexican aesthetic.

We love this unique bridal look.  A red wedding gown with a lush floral crown and large statement jewellery pieces tied the look together.

Our wonderful couple, Veronica & Alexander, embraced the spirit of the shoot and we had such an amazing time photographing the pair at Casa Fuzetta in Olhao.

It was great working with this creative team.  A pleasure to meet Jeremy, from Jatc, who came up with this brilliant concept for the shoot – Frida Kahlo inspired Elopement. The make up was impeccable and so beautiful, we always love working with Sharon and Veronica was wonderfully transformed into Frida. Love the colourfully artistic floral arrangement and design by Julie Pinto.

The dress was a showstopper, love how it moved and it’s such a unique look for a bold bride, perfectly paired with the most elegant yellow Louboutin shoes.  The intricately crafted jewellery pieces were an essential addition to complete the look.

And of course Blue, the “showbiz” parrot who brought so much fun and excitement to the set!

The location was magic, shoot at the beautiful and charming Casa Fuzetta.  The rooftop provided a stunning backdrop at sunset overlooking the white washed buildings of Olhao.  Really look forward to shooting an intimate wedding here soon!
