Who has never dreamt of an exclusive wedding in Tuscany? The romantic sunsets that slowly disappear behind the green hills, the cosy hamlets full of history and curiosities, the poetic and sophisticated atmosphere … the romantic dream of every bride!
We chose the beautiful hillside town of Cortona in Tuscany as the setting for this photo shoot: at the foot of the green hills you have the beautiful and exclusive Resort Corte dei Papi;
We have to admit that we are very satisfied and proud of the results of this design set.
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, centrepieces and cake-stands, and we worked on the geometry of the space and volumes in order to obtain an elegant and balanced result.
The use of colour in a monochromatic key helped us obtain our objective: greys and whites catalyse the attention on the gold and metal reflections of the details of the set-up.
The floral compositions are natural, apparently decomposed but have a great overall balance, the opal details are given by the skilful use of Honesty (Lunaria annua), a flower that I love very much at this time of year and other wildflowers.
To embellish the table and accessories with opalescent white elements, we involved an exceptionally skilled local artist who produces sculptures and jewellery 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.
Vibrant and luminous photography combine all of these aspects in a poetic atmosphere during a Tuscan sunset.
