Cinco de Mayo Wedding Inspiration at Open Farm Community

Let the fiesta begin! Today’s Cinco de Mayo-inspired styled shoot at Open Farm Community is awash with vibrant colours, florals, and papel picado banners. Imagined by Fiona Treadwell, with dresses by Caramel & Co., cake by Winifred Kristé, stationery by Pearlyn and Paper, photography by AndroidsinBoots and modelled by Power 98 DJ Jacqui Thibodeaux, the fun and festivity never ends! Best viewed with a margarita in hand.

A word from Fiona…
“I wanted something loud, joyous and fun for a change as weddings in Singapore seldom opt for vibrant colors. Ours was a shoot with bright colours, succulents, cacti, fancy cocktails, embroidery and an oversized floral headdress.

I approached Open Farm Community as their farm-to-table concept, free-range chickens, and lovely garden were a perfect fit!

I styled a cocktail bar section where guests could gather before the solemnisation and also double up as a cake-cutting table after the solemnisation. Winifred Kriste Cake’s cake was adorned with realistic sugar flowers and also had hand painted designs on it. Local potter Mud Rock Ceramics made the jade coin vases. The area was decorated with paper buntings customised by KcottageStudio and transformed the space into something festive. I also handmade a bead and fabric backdrop which could be used for a solemnisation.

Mel from Caramel & Co. hand stitched the flowers on the first dress and it also came with a matching bib. Jacqui's second dress has flutter-sleeves with a plunging neckline and fitted bodice to show off one's curves. Jacqui wore handcrafted jewellery by Amanda W.

Pearlyn designed a stationery suite which included invites, rsvp cards, table numbers and escort cards (the latter in particular to be used to encourage guests to find their own seats instead of having to be directed to their seats by members of the bridal party).

With help from GG Fresh Flower, I curated some fresh blooms from around the world. I used Kate Garden Roses as the main flowers, and mimosas, delphiniums and garden spray roses were also used to dress up the venue. Jacqui held a horizontal bouquet and I created an oversized headdress to complement the look. Jacqui also sat on a Peacock chair woven with flowers to suit the theme.

Last but not least, the vital role of capturing all these nice pictures was played by AndroidsinBoots (AIB). Thank you AIB for always taking up challenges, pushing boundaries in the industry and sharing the same vision as me.”
