Anton and Ekaterina (Kate) decided to celebrate their third wedding anniversary in a special way by recreating the magical atmosphere of their wedding day in a charming forest located by a lake. The entire editorial was designed and styled by the gorgeous girl you see in these images, Kate of Pandorossa Flowers, and shot exquisitely by Irinia Kilmova.
From Kate of Pandorossa Flowers – We took this editorial very seriously. I’m a floral designer and with wedding season right around the corner I was just in the mood for this spectacular project. Our third wedding anniversary seemed to be a trigger for this wonderful and stylized session with our almost family photographer friend Irina Klimova, who can really understand and feel our concepts and us.
The location for the shooting was chosen with purpose – a forest by the lake, where a lot of cheerful tourists are during the summer, but in winter this place is much more quiet, with only true lovers of winter fishing along the lake shores. At times like this it is wonderful to stop and breathe, enjoy the light, silence, and the wonderful atmosphere. That is the reason why autumn and winter shoots are so amazing – they let us to places which are unreachable in summer, allowing us to appreciate a very different side of them.
Inspired by our recent trip and infinite love affair with Italy we combined that with a touch of vintage of Italian flee markets and elements of eco-rustic style, all of which was reflected at the wedding ceremony area and nut bar. Each of the areas was thoroughly thought over, each element was selected with love and tender care to reflect our love story.
SHOOTING THE EDITORIAL
That day turned out to be not so easy. We had a sleepless night of preparations and assembled a lot of the décor very early in the morning in frosty weather. Afterwards, the wedding ceremony arch by the water was left up because we simply had no energy to disassemble it. However, the local fishermen have told us that they are pleased with it!
Despite the difficulties we were SO pleased with our editorial! Our infinite love for each other kept us warm and gave us power and that day ended up to be the best celebration that we could have ever had for our anniversary.
