Following a long period of forced closure due to the lockdown, these amazing wedding collaborators felt it was time to get their thoughts together, get out, celebrate beauty and return to normal life and the job they love doing. What better idea than organizing a photo shoot with a group of fantastic wedding professionals!
From Collaborator Dream On Wedding Planner:
We chose the beautiful town of Cortona in Tuscany for the setting: a rural town perched among the green hills and where the magnificent Corte dei Papi Resort is pleasantly situated; an exclusive and highly prestigious location. The set-up was conceived with the idea of creating something that could integrate with the existing design of the ballroom in the Villa: opulent and full of gold-coloured details. We aimed at maintaining a certain freshness, lightness and grace.
We wanted the visual impact to be refined and precious but without being opulent, overpowering and heavy. We designed and built the gilded iron structures that act as candlesticks, centerpieces and cake-stands at the same time and we worked on the geometry of the space and volumes trying to obtain an elegant and balanced result.
The use of color in a monochromatic key has helped us in this: greys and whites catalyse the attention on the gold and metal reflections of the details of the set-up. Our floral design did the rest thanks to wonderful compositions that perfectly complement our “gilded cages”. The compositions are natural, apparently broken up but with a great overall balance: the opal details are given by the Honesty (Lunaria annua), a flower that I love very much at the moment and other wildflowers.
To embellish the table and accessories with opalescent white elements, we involved an exceptionally skilled local artist who produces sculptures and jewelry in very fine porcelain. All the bride’s accessories (necklace, earrings, ring) are inspired by the organic forms of nature and produced in white porcelain. The vibrant and luminous photography romantically coordinates all of these aspects together in a poetic atmosphere surrounded by the Tuscan sunset!
