The Italian Job
Welcome to a photo shoot which literally oozes style and class. Karen at Darby and Joan, along with her dream team, came together and created this amazing masterpiece. We hand you over to Karen to reveal more …
“This was the biggest shoot I have organized, a real labour of love.
60 hours in the planning, a group of amazingly talented and awesome suppliers. Four models To. Die.For. A heartbreakingly gorgeous collection of dresses. A venue to make you want to get married again. Accessories, flowers, makeup, hair and other stuff just too ace to describe.
A Vespa, an enormous light up heart, a Daimler. A few sleepless nights. But WHAT A DAY.
I wanted to show two different table styles: A classic Tuscan theme as homage to the Italian restaurant we were in – a glamorous rustic affair with a very neutral palette. The second look was a complete contrast – a bright, Kate Spade inspired table with bold stripes and tones of navy and coral.
You will be hearing a lot more about Amalfi White. A stunning backdrop for a wedding. Elegant and inspirational, the décor and the furniture in the Ballroom provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot.
Oh the dresses. Timeless Couture have produced their most beautiful and elegant collection to date.
The whole day was a lot fun and everyone was a real joy to work with, it’s pretty cool when everyone is so creative, there were ideas being thrown around left right and centre.”
