INTIMATE TUSCAN WEDDING – STYLED SHOOT
What are the perfect ingredients for a fashion-forward couple getting married, if not the simple combination of fashion mixed with a touch of glamour and a twist of sophistication? Oh, and set in a dreamy Italian landscape steeped in romance and creative elegance, of course.
When photographer Gradisca Portento and stylist Giulia Lazzarini realised the dreamy concept for this editorial – it was all about taking the classic, private Villa wedding and injecting it with a new sense of elegant, modernised fun.
Kaviar Gauche, with its Cloud N9 collection was the true embodiment of the chic bride paired, with the talented hair and make-up prowess of Cherie Spisso.
To complete the concept, the floral arrangements created by Marypoppies Floral Studio spoke of sculptural, contemporary shapes and the artful use of empty space to go the extra mile in ensuring the flowers become something more than just a memory.
This display celebrates a less-is-more approach, The Letterist – with her fine touch and enchanting simplicity – has a unique way of creating minimal prestigious paper art.
As if in a private home, a recently renovated liberty-style villa perched high in the hills with a panoramic pool, scouted by Roseli Riva, was the perfect choice for a couple with great taste for architecture and Italian style. Surrounded by lush trees, stroll in the Italian garden bursting with fragrant roses and lemon trees turning the wedding into a unforgettably unique escape… and only 30 minutes away from the bustle of Florence city life.
Every single capture here was captured with a careful eye for composition, capturing the mood of those fleeting, authentic, and intimate moments with pure art by Gradisca Portento.
With the borders once more open, travel upon us and international destination weddings once more being realised – what better time to be swept away in the beauty of a European wedding dream?
