Today we hand over to our friends, a group of wedding professionals in Italy, to talk us through one of their recent styled shoots. We love how they’ve utilised the natural environment while creating a thoroughly modern look…
The Italian landscape offers a gift of a wild and true nature. Passing through hills covered by centuries-old olive trees we reached this big cane thicket. Here the light of the sun, filtered by the reeds, created geometric slices of light and a warm and golden atmosphere.
The space seems to form a large container that both protects and divides. While the barrier is dense and imposing, it doesn’t take much to break it down.
The colour palette is natural; golden beige to terracotta, we wanted to be in complete harmony with the natural walls created by the reeds.
We are always fascinated by the task of creating organic floral compositions, that speak volumes of the place and what it offers. The main element of this bouquet is the olive tree and it’s mixed with dried flowers, small orange roses and delicates blush-colored roses .
On the table we had plates with monochrome patterns, concrete vases/candle holders, vintage glasses and hand-forged iron cutlery. We paired the tableware with ethnic chairs and a rustic table and chandelier, for a modern and eclectic look.
The bride wears a low-waisted dress in soft silk chiffon; a style inspired by the 70s. In keeping with the bohemian retro style, our female model wore her hair in loose, natural curls and her makeup featured pops of gold and orange.
If you’re planning a destination wedding in Italy and are looking for an English based/speaking wedding planner please contact me. I have a working relationship with these brilliant, passionate Italian suppliers.
