| STYLED SHOOT | Italian Romance
We’ve got such a gorgeous little shoot on the blog for you today. We are really feeling the editorial feel these images have to them meaning they wouldn’t look out of place across the pages of a glossy fashion magazine. Italian inspired, this set up is dripping in luxe elegance with those stunningly huge flower bowls, tapered candles and cut glass tablewear – romantic vibes galore. The bridal model has an air of old Hollywood glamour and who doesn’t love a groom in a tux!
Perfect for a bit of escapism; immerse yourself in this Tuscan treat for the eyes as Masha, the photographer behind the shoot, tells us more...
As a photographer and someone who has an unconditional love for Italy I long toyed with the idea of Italian garden romance, set by the fountain, just the two of them, and surrounded by impressive architecture. When I first visited the grand Marden Park Mansion in Woldingham I knew this was the perfect place to bring that vision to life. It is set in the beautiful Surrey countryside, with details and elements of the Italian Renaissance garden and is perfect for those couples who want to have a touch of European inspired wedding in the UK.
The lush fountain space becomes the focal point of the stylish wedding table and frames the ever-lasting, endless love of two. The vision for the table was luxe, inviting and elegant. I thought the colour palette for this shoot to be a mixture of neutral with blue and gold tones.
The contrast between the white-textured dinnerware, vintage inspired crystal and stylish bistro chairs for seating worked perfectly in unison. The styling was curated to accent the colours of Tuscan life with a combination of different textures of bronze, use of candles and cream, soft runner. Bentwood bistro chairs by Academy Furniture Hire gave more character to Italian garden romance. The final element to tie in the Italian mood for dinner were the place names and simple yet chic menu cards by Lou Paper Design which cultivated the look with an elegant blue.
Two of the table floral centrepieces by Raven and Rye Grass Design were full of variety of garden rose, nigella, and seasonal sweet pea just to name a few. For the bridal bouquet, our florist has decided to keep it in a lighter blush palette to give the Mediterranean vibe to the arrangements.
