Intimate Wedding Inspiration in Tuscan Rolling Hills
A Wildflower Styled Shoot in Val d’Orcia with an Editorial Vibe
Those Iconic Rolling Hills you’re used to seeing on Instagram and that, years ago, you were used to seeing on postcards. You know what I’m speaking about, huh? In early May of this year – while we were slightly coming out form out Italian CoViD19 lockdown – I reached out to Olivia, asking her if she wanted to do something together in the following free months. She talked to me about her idea about a colorful shooting in Val d’Orcia she had in mind, and it all started from there. Our “Intimate Wedding Inspiration in Tuscan Rolling Hills” was taking shape.
Together – we decided to involve in the project a team of just super-local vendors, but with a cosmopolitan and international attitude and addressed to the international market. We wanted to see if we were able to provide our clients with a bunch of suppliers that can help them in building a 100%Tuscan made-to-measure experience. From dress and suit to shoes, from sunglasses to a tailored perfume, from jewelry to underwear and robe, all you’re gonna see here is 100% from Tuscan craftsmen (95% Florentine I’d say). Photographer as well, of course, is 100% from Florence! Not only the beauty but also the bespoke experience that such a team can create for a couple is a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wherever you come from, if you’re thinking of Tuscany as your wedding destination, then you should discover the full team behind this styled shoot. This is your starting point if your ambition is to enjoy your wedding with a unique set of local experts. We all share the same vision: creating tailor-made experiences for demanding clients, who wish to customize every aspect of their celebration in Tuscany. Olivia asked us to imagine a joyful mood, elegant but also out of the “classic Tuscany” everyone can expect to see. A bit far from the usual rustic-chic vision, taking inspiration from the Italian fashion inheritance, we tried to put in it an elegant, unique editorial vibe, all wrapped in a kind of cinematic look.
Have a look below, you’ll make me happy if you’ll tell me what you think about in the comments. I’m smiling behind my face mask all the times I look back at these photos, that today will be also shown on Green Wedding Shoes!
