Today’s inspiration shoot from Alexandra Vonk, Bloom Wedding, and Il Matromonio Italianio is the stuff of dreams. Set in a quaint church and villa in Fano Italy, it effortless combines classic Italian wedding traditions with a gorgeous color palette and enchanting details, perfect for nuptials in the Italian countryside!
From Leontine Lauffer of Il Matrimonio Italiano – “When I wanted to style this shoot, I knew that I wanted to bring out the beautiful details of a typical Italian traditional wedding. I love to keep tradition high by showing some strong accents in its pure way and then combining it with soft and elegant surroundings and materials.
Italy is well-known for its drama and strong religious beliefs and that is what makes a wedding in Italy so pretty and memorable. The rosary is such an important element of the religious wedding, and I just loved to show that. The Cannoli tower and sweet cookies are typical for an Italian start of the day and are a symbol for happiness.
The church… the veil, the praying a bride does before getting married…all are parts of an Italian tradition that we never should forget. I love Italy and I love the proud Italians keep those very important moments alive during their wedding. The church was kept exactly the way it was when it was built in the 1600‘s!
The dress was stunning with its lace accents and silk and the handwritten Italian calligraphy stationary was perfection along with the floral compositions.
My love for flea markets and little vintage shops is great, for me those little precious trinkets are the best things to use for a wedding inspiration shoot. I found the plates and cups in little shops along with the tablecloths and lace napkins, which were the perfect extra detail!”
