This stunning styled shoot, brought Amber of Angel Lion Weddings & Events perfectly captures the feeling of Old World elegance! Here’s Amber to tell us more:
I am an American wedding planner based in Venice, Italy for the past 10 years. I run a boutique wedding and events agency here and was contacted by photographers George & Miranda Vivanco to collaborate on a stylized shoot in Venice. George & Miranda are photographers based in LA with a dream of doing destination weddings. This being Venice we knew we wanted to have a classic and elegant Venetian affair. Something that referred back to the incredible history and culture of this country.
See more after the cut!
We decided to hold the shoot in one of the oldest and most prestigious palazzi in Venice, Palazzo Rocca Contarini Corfu. The palazzo dates back to the 14th century and has been in the family for generations. It was the perfect destination for the shoot, even Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited the palazzo in 1985.
The dress and veil was from the prestigious MariaLuisa Benetti atelier. The talented Letizia Cordella decided on a classic look with a modern twist for the hair & makeup. The calligraphy was done by Catarina Brunelli, who also happens to design beautiful calligraphy pens out of olive wood. The stationary was provided by Gianni Basso Stampatore, he has a collections of woodblock stamps from the 18th century.
La Dogaressa Flowers provided bold flowers with a mixture of ranunculus and succulents. The wedding favors were made by Mola Venezia and looked perfect in the vintage mise en place provided by the family Visonti. The models were Alessandra Zuccarello and Andrea Facchin, based in Venice.
