Styled Shoot – An intimate Italian romance
“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.” F Scott Fitzgerald
Inspired by Fitzgerald’s classic quote, Isole Weddings and Le Vélo Fotografia have crafted a contemporary vision of Italian romance. An opulent, exquisitely styled castle underscores this dreamy mirage with Italian history, whilst striking architectural lines and soft textural features provide a sumptuous setting.
Among these sandstone pink facades appears the bride, a perfect picture of sophisticated boho with a twist of gold glam in her tulle wrapped gown by Sophie et Voila. As she moves through the stunning frescos and castle grounds, she carries a bouquet by Flower Addicted, perfectly simple yet effortlessly artful in tones of soft russet, lush chocolate and sweet ivory.
Guests are beckoned with classic stationery; heavy linen card revealing a contemporary twist; tawny ink and modern typeform, hand-drawn in calligraphic style by Dodo Design & Co.
In the Italian tradition, dinner is alfresco, under the starlit sky. A sweetly intimate tablescape of draped white linen, darky earthy textures and a hint of modern goth are revealed in the candlelight. Softly weathered metallics combine with antique detailing to continue the theme of history meets modern dreams, timeless romance and a captivatingly contemporary love story.
