Inspired by the rich hand-crafted details that are so abundant in Sayulita, Mexico,
Dekker Photography partnered with local wedding planners Sayulita Dream Weddings to create this vibrant beach picnic elopement shoot. Their starting off point was the incredible dress that their ‘bride’ wore and OMG I don’t know about you but I NEED one!
“I approached Sayulita Dream Weddings with the idea for a shoot based around the gorgeous hand-embroidered gowns from Sayulita’s famous
Pachamama boutique“, explained Photographer Beth. “The idea grew from there. We wanted a vibrant, rich colour palette with many hand-crafted details.”
“The dreamcatchers, also from Pachamama, were the perfect backdrop for our beach/jungle setting. We also had hand-stitched blankets, bespoke pillows and beach bags. For the flowers we incorporates gilded feathers, jewel-toned wild blooms, and luxe textures and colours throughout.”
“We want this shoot to really show off the amazing colours and textures that are so prevalent in Mexico. It was great to work with some amazing local vendors to create something outside of the box as well as get everybody involved.”

While all weddings are of course unique in their own way, there are a few themes here at Rock n Roll Bride that, behind the scenes, we’ve been calling nu-trad; you know, like nu-metal, but for weddings. The Limp Bizkit of matrimony, if you will. ‘Festival weddings’ being one of them. There’s a very good reason that things become popular - certain styles, like dusky foliage, painted leather jackets and dainty flower-crowns look beautiful together, so by all means there’s no harm rocking these things if you think they represent you.

It’s 2019, so obviously you’re aware that styling your wedding no longer means having sleepless nights over what Auntie Maude will think of your choice of complementary bridesmaid dresses or meticulously matching the exact shade of sage green of your napkins to - well, anything. You’re fully aware that it’s a-okay to wear a black dress, rock a floral suit or dye your hair pink if you want to. I’d bet you’re constantly tagged in posts about unicorn fashion / rainbow cake / other slightly out-dated but once-alternative fashions by well-meaning but slightly clueless friends and family as the token ~Colourful One~. But when it comes to actually using colour in your big day, are you feeling stumped with where to start and how to get achieve the perfect balance between insta-worthy colour clash and a big old mess?
