Frida Kahlo Inspired Wedding Ideas

There are few women who have used fashion and image as powerfully as Frida Kahlo. A boundary-smashing, progressive, feminist figurehead, the Mexican artist was one of the first to create her own personal brand. Imagine our delight when our London-based favorites created not one, but two undeniably ravishing Frida Kahlo inspired wedding looks at Horniman Museum and Gardens. These magnificent scenes coincide with the “Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up exhibition that recently opened at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London. Marking the first-time history that this exhibition has left Mexico, it showcases 200 of the artist’s personal items. Unquestionably, this team knowns inspiration when they see it! With Joanne Fleming Design’s vibrant Frida dress and Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium awe-striking cakes, a two-part concept and story came to life in vivid color, bold and contrasting ethereal details and a whole lot of swoon worthy moments. Working with Anna Fern Weddings the tribute becomes a high fashion bridal shoot full of Frida Kahlo inspired wedding looks with Roberta Facchini Photography fine art ability.

Frida Kahlo Inspired Wedding Ideas

In our humble opinion, Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium is a pure genius. Brilliant if you will. As the original concept and developer of this splendor, she brought together a true London A-list. The two-part Frida Kahlo inspired wedding looks are based on the well-loved Mexican artist’s most famous painting Las Dos Fridas (The Two Fridas). The painting was created at a pivotal point in her life, depicting an expressive double self-portrait that symbolizes the artist’s contrasting, yet very separate entities. In the painting, the two distinct Fridas are linked together not only by their hands, but also by the connecting cord that travels around them. Frida’s bold fashion has been a key source of inspiration for modern day designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Riccardo Tisci, and style icons such as Beyoncé. Within each contrasting looks the team breaks down how these visions of wonderment come to life.
