C ´´est en Grèce, dans la ville médiévale de Monemvasia que nous emmène aujourd´hui le photographe de mariage fine art Christophe Serrano. J ´ ai été immédiatement conquise par la mise en scène raffinée, l´ imagerie romantique et la palette de couleurs unique utilisée. Nous sommes en Grèce mais la table dressée avec soin nous rappelle une fête baroque dans un Palazzo de Venise, et la mariée a des allures de vestale moderne.
From Bohème Workshops: The influence of Western Europe and the Venetian Empire on the town provided the inspiration for this Editorial. The concept began to develop one year prior, when the workshop team scouted the amazing church ruin that is the location of the editorial. The stunning church ruin inspired a shoot that was hauntingly beautiful, referencing an old world European aesthetic that was both romantic and otherworldly.
Based on this design reference, a custom lace gown with a dramatic pearl veil was created for the workshop and paired with a delicate bouquet. To build on the luxuriance of the lace and pearls in the gown, the elements of ivory, silver and velvet became central to the rest of the design of the editorial. The colour palette of the floral design and tables cape referenced a pale Venetian pink, from another building from that time period in Monemvasia.
The Table setting
The pale pink was complemented with taupe, dusty lilac and grey to be consistent with the overall aesthetic of the shoot which was to be opulent and refined, aged and muted all at once. The floral centrepiece on the tables cape was oversized and dramatic. The tables cape sourced antique silverware and mix and matched Venetian style glassware and Italian wood charger plates with velvet napkins and gorgeous love letters on each elopement table setting. The stationery suite for the elopement featured a hand drawn depiction of the town of Monemvasia and was done on handmade paper, hand lettered with brown ink.
The beautiful stationery features a sketch of the town printed on dusty rose handmade paper. Those precious paper goods are keepsake the couple will cherish a lifetime.
