Soaked in wine-toned hues with hints of gold for good measure, this dreamy inspiration shoot beautifully captured by Belathee Photography is dripping with gorgeous. With florals from Flora Nova that will leave you speechless, stunning stationery from Izzy Girl and cakes from Judy Tallant that are just about as pretty as they get – this gallery is simply beyond lovely.
From Belathee Photography…Christiane and I both grew up in Germany near this beautiful 800 year old monastery, which nowadays has turned into a popular wedding location for sophisticated couples from all over the world
The ”Kloster Eberbach ” is located in a well known German wine growing region called ” Rheingau” – it’s main function today evolves around wine: the history of wine making, the selling and tasting of regional wines and therefore we chose a gold wine goblet as a repeating element throughout the settings. The goblet was not only used as part of each place setting but it was also featured on the lucite stationery: invitation, menu cards, and place cards.
For the styled shoot Christiane wanted to combine the old with the new by using elements like modern ghost chairs next to antique wooden tables, lucite menu cards and place cards next to antique candle holders, bold gold sequin linens next to vintage flatware. All in the grand setting of the old monks’ dormitories featuring tall stone curved ceilings. The florals were based around the color of the year “Marsala” as we felt that the colors fit perfectly with the deep red painted arches of the grand dormitory.
Our styled shoot at Kloster Eberbach was a dream come true for both of us and we had thought about it since we first found out we were from the same region in Germany.Working at this gorgeous location and show off its unique beauty combined our childhood with our current careers in the wedding industry. One of the highlights was to have our local relatives stop by and see us ” in action”.
We chatted about how fun it would be for Germany to be “discovered “as new and unique place to get married.. we love Italy and France but we think there is room for new neighbors ! After talking to local wedding vendors we found out that a lot of younger german couples are looking for a new and fresh way to ” set the table” while yet remaining true to many local traditions. Turns out they often seek inspiration through international wedding blogs such as Style me Pretty !
