The romance is absolutely overflowing in this style shoot themed off a love note found on a famous wall at Lover’s Walk in Cinque Terre, Italy. The creative geniuses behind Love in October and Jenny Cuerel Photography put together a session dripping in sweet details…I must admit I had a hard time picking my favorites to share! There is so much more deliciousness in the full gallery, you’ll definitely be coming back for seconds.

From Love In OctoberThe idea for the shoot came when I spotted a sweet love note on the wall of the Lover’s Walk in the Cinque Terre, Italy. It said, “It all started at a chocolate factory, Will and Sofia”. The shoot is a celebration of what Will and Sofia’s wedding might have look liked. They had a beautiful ceremony in the Australian countryside where they were married in a ceremony circle created by guests, laid on a quirky bed and had their bridal portraits taken nearby. To honour their chocolate factory meeting place, I incorporated lots of little chocolate details, with the bride wearing a hand-made, black tulle bridal gown. 

They were married in the gardens of an old prison (that looked like an old chocolate factory). For the reception, I created an afternoon tea setting with vintage furniture pieces, beautiful flowers and lots of desserts. The desserts included individual chocolate tasting plates, hot chocolates, drink stations, and two cake bars (with rainbow cakes and a three tiered wedding cake).
