Ever since my sister was engaged in Italy, I’ve spent a lot of time dreaming of Italian weddings. And this pretty little inspiration shoot from the talented team of Marriage and Glamour and les amis photo? Well, it’s right up my alley. Because this, my friends, is exactly how I picture a breathtaking Mediterranean affair to be – completely natural + organic, detail rich and filled with beauty. See every last lovely moment right here in the full gallery.
This shoot was designed by Marriage and Glamour and Les Amis Photo for proposing a Mediterranean Italian style wedding. It was created in Puglia, the south Italian region that is being discovered as a very romantic Destination Wedding location in Italy, full of “masserie,” typical white rural houses of Apulia transformed in the recent years into charming venues for intimate parties.
The materials are all natural, handmade and eco-friendly. For the table were used textiles like pure linens and ropes, for the stationery uncoated paper – all made in Italy; the stationery shows olive wreaths as main symbol (the plant is considered a banner of Puglia). A tribute was made to the bread, in particular to the Tarallo, a crusty bread typical of Puglia, which was inserted in a small placeholder created by the talented guys of SHH My Darling. For the breadbox they have realized a bag stamped with a proverb from Apulian dialect which can be summarized as follows: bread and tomato produce healty blood and warmth.
The setting was made by Ancient pottery and silver cutlery, centerpieces were made by simplest flowers mixed with herbs of the Mediterranean: rosemary, olive, chamomile, succulents. The Dessert table was prepared with a plum cake flavored with lemon, cheese cake with lavender and finally many small biscuits and sweets with almond paste typical of Puglia.
The bride and groom are very young, dressed in clothes that seem to have come out of an old trunk, created by Alessia Baldi, with a vintage and romantic alloure.
