Auto-start Airplay Mirroring

I've been successfully using an older (2009) Mac mini running monitorless as an iTunes server of sorts. I use my iPad or wife's Macbook to VNC to it whenever I need to do something. I'll soon by replacing it with a new Mac mini and have been thinking about using Airplay Mirroring to our AppleTV (along with bluetooth keyboard/trackpad) to have the option to control it on the TV.
My question is about finding a way to start the Airplay Mirroring through a script (or something equivalent) so that I could avoid having to VNC to the Mac mini from my iPhone/iPad, click the Airplay button in the menu bar and then select the Apple TV. Ideally I could assign a keyboard shortcut to start a script which would do that for me and then it would just show up on the Apple TV.
I have a basic understanding of AppleScript and have used Automator to some extent but am wondering if someone knows of a solution that wouldn't involve writing something to emulate a series of mouse clicks?
