Inspired by the colours of Dia De Los Muertos, photographer Christina Sanchez, dreamt up this incredible shoot. “We shot in Mission San Juan Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano in California”, she said. “I love collaborating with amazingly talented people to create unforgettable imagery. We created this to share with everyone who loves these same things as much as we do!”

The dress was hand-painted by artist Jessica Cruz! “When you hand-paint a dress the options are endless! We went for colour, colour and more colour! We want this shoot to tell brides to dare to be you no matter what your style or what anyone says! This shoot brought together my dream look so anyone can do it!”

  1. Wow!! Stunning – Love the Totoros, unicorn, rainbow cake! My 6 year old daughter would love that! I can see some mega man , pac man and my little pony too!

  2. In your face wishy-washy vintage.

    Ha only kidding but seriously this is amazing, a great new look to inspire kick ass brides. Although I shall now have Gwen Stefani going round my head all day. Super kawaii!

  3. Ahh what a brilliant shoot. Love the take on Japanese pop culture, definitely happy to see more of this in the future. What a great collaboration <3

    I love this so much!!! I live and crochet in brights, first thing I did in my new house was to paint the kitchen bright green and the bath room turquoise. So this shoot feels so me white is pretty much banned in our wedding. I’d never wear it or choose it for decor so it just seemed silly to use it for our wedding because that is what everyone else does. It’s so hard to find properly bright wedding insparation though. Thank you to all who made this happen!

  5. We had THE best time planning this in our little group!!! Everyone was sooooooo up for it
    Thanks for all the awesome comments peeps, You made my day
    “The futures so bright we gotta wear shades!”

  6. Awesome, awesome, awesome… Every single friggin inch of this is just fabulous. It’s been amazing to see everything that has come after that incredible week at the Farm.

  9. Very kawaii! Great to some far-out-of-the-box shoots that still seem intimate and romantic. Excellent work everyone.

  10. GIRLS!! this is just incredible, love love love 🙂 well done to all of you, super gorgeous work 🙂 yummy yummy colour LOVE <3

  11. Gorgeous! I want my life to be this colorful. 🙂

    And as a My Little Pony fan, I love all the pony details, like the Rainbow Dash ring and the Celestia fascinator. Oh and the Pokemon paper fan–so awesome!

  12. This photo shoot was one of the most creative and colourful I’ve seen in a wedding blog! The cake is a complete work of art, I might get one like that for my next birthday, I’m in love with it! I also loved the Asian wedding inspiration in all the details: the origami-like paper flowers, the cherry blossoms and the Japanese umbrellas…
