Happy Friday guys.. Hope you have had a good week.. We are getting back into the swing of things after Laura’s epic festival wedding last weekend.. We are now focusing all our energy on our Latitude Wedding which will take place on 20th July.. (So really not long!!)
We have a huge amount to do and pull together for our lucky couple Nadine and Neil. See their winning entry here!!
Our inspiration is Frida Kahlo and I for one am very excited about this now very creative fetival wedding… The first full on festival wedding at a festival!! We still need more amazing suppliers to step forward at lend a hand – We are looking for make-up artists, hair stylists, decor stylists and prop hire to make this concept a reality!! If you feel you want a creative challenge based on this amazing theme then please do get in touch with us email@example.com
So Frida Kahlo de Rivera (Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was born July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954. She was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán, who is best known for her self-portraits.
Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.
Mexican culture and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as Naïve art or folk art. Her work has also been described as “surrealist”, and in 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo’s art as a “ribbon around a bomb”.
Kahlo suggested, “I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” She also stated, “I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.” Don’t know about you but this inspires me to be a painter!! xx
So a little advice for Nadine (Our blushing Latitude bride), less of the eyebrows more of the flowers in the hair!!
We love this style, and can’t wait to see all the colour and energy come to life on their big day.. But must get on, still so much to do…We hope you enjoy Frida Friday.. So much vibrant wedding inspiration all in one post!!
