Inspired By The Beauty
Tying the knot overlooking the breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast
Inspired by the beauty and rich history of southern Italy, our creative team dreamt up this romantic editorial shoot as an homage to Italian splendor and old world charm. Villa Cimbrone provided the perfect backdrop, a dream wedding location for the ones who seek to be surrounded by high aesthetics blended with tranquility and romance. Perched high atop a cliff with a dramatic sight of the Mediterranean and the coastline, the beautiful estate is the crown laurel of Ravello, a bliss for the Ravello wedding photographer.
The intimate ceremony took place under the vaulted arches of the crypt overflowing with lush foliage and floral blooms that evoked the feeling of a magical garden. Styled with a hanging crystal chandelier and scattered vintage gold candelabras, the ceremony was an incredible sight to see, a Ravello wedding at its best.
The dinner table set on the Terrace on Infinity was draped in green velvet and adorned with candelabras creating an opulent setting for the couple. Lavish tableware with gold cutlery and forged glasses highlighted by blush Florentine charger plates were reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance prosperity era. Hues of dusty rose, blush and cream punctuated the floral centerpiece completing the ethereal feel and timeless elegance of the intimate reception that any Wedding photographer in Ravello would love to capture.
Velvet accents were abundant throughout the editorial complementing the vintage-inspired styling. This sumptuous material was featured in the groom’s costume, ribbons, tablecloths, vow booklets, ring boxes and served as a backdrop for the flat lays. Antique styling goods: a mirror, brush, frames, vintage stamps and other heirloom accessories were used to showcase the stationary and bridal details for this Ravello wedding.
The invitation suite was created from handmade cotton paper with deckled edges infused with dried flowers. The flowing calligraphy on the envelope and the wax seal further added to the romantic and classic touch of the paper goods.
The heavenly floating cake appeared as if it was suspended in time and space with intricate golden leaves swirling around the different tiers. It was displayed on deep pink velvet embellished by a loose organic floral arrangement.
A whimsical vision crafted in layers of pastel green and pink tulle, the bride’s gown captured the fairytale essence with floral appliqués details and exquisite beading across its delicate silhouette which was accented by a velvet rose ribbon belt.
