Behind the stunning photography was Giuseppe Giovannelli and wedding planner and designer Your wedding – Tuscany brought the concept to life at the beautiful Villa Scorzi. I fell head over heels for the abundance of flowers, the table laden with sharing platters and the magnificent cake table set up. These images certainly bring much joy and warmth to the chilly November days and for that I am really thankful today. Soak it all up folks.
Tuscan Wedding Ideas
This shooting was organised in a fourteenth-century Tuscan villa and nods at the typical Italian beauty, not only of women but also of the quality food that Italy offers. The colour, the joy and the abundance are what we wanted to convey through the flowers, the details and the choices made in the planning. Although set in Tuscany, the atmosphere is Mediterranean, warm, colourful and stylish. The table was filled with food for a type of ‘family style’ banquet. Traditional Italian food (cheeses, cold cuts, olives, bread) has been mixed with beautiful coloured flowers. Even in the bride’s outfit we were inspired by hand-embroidered laces and ancient fabrics. However, we added a colourful touch to the shoes and the flower crown. I hope that this explosion of colours will soon bring back the desire to celebrate in Italy to the many couples from all over the world.
When we thought about the creation of this styled shoot, we took inspiration from Southern Italy and its traditions and atmospheres. We asked the graphic designer to create stationery that would emphasize the colours of the citrus fruits present in the Villa. In the flat lay photos we added a sacred Ex voto, an object with a strong symbolic value often given to the Madonna or to a Saint as a sign of gratitude for a grace received. As per strong Italian Catholic tradition, the ceremony was set in the small private chapel inside the Villa’s property. We have deliberately designed the look of the bride with a strong contrast between the traditional line of the white macramé lace dress and the eye-catching details such as the flower crown and the jewels. Even the coloured sandals complete the contrast between tradition and contemporary fashion. The centrepiece made up of food and traditional specialities, now considered a new trend for setting up banquets, was actually born many years ago on the Italian tables of the party, when the family gathered to celebrate a special occasion. The cake was set up in a suggestive corner of the Villa, which we chose specifically for the frescoed background and its colours.
