And, all of the possible great existential achievements, lightness remains my favourite».

I don't know exactly where I heard this sentence, nor of who it is by, but the idea behind this photo shoot is precisely to create something that we really liked and that could not be schematized with defined labels.

The undefined geographical location: an Italian countryside, the outer space of a very cosy cloister and the bright interior space give the photos a slightly indefinite atmosphere, as with the haute couture dress from a few seasons ago and the eccentric but not precious jewels. There is a continuous game of what it could be but it is not ... the elements of the traditional wedding are lightened and desacralised to obtain a relaxed fresh, modern atmosphere.

We played with colours, space and light and we hope that all of this entertains you as much as it did us during the making of the shoot.

We chose a beautiful Villa in the wonderful countryside near Todi as our location: the magnificent local pink stone with which it is built seems to light up and reflect the faint spring sun. We immediately fell in love with
the design of this location, carefully furnished with a refined and international taste, full of eclectic objects of various origins and works of art.

The young model has a very natural Mediterranean look: her makeup, skilfully applied by the makeup artist Alice Quartarone, is natural and bright and enhances the model’s particular beauty.

She is wearing a champagne-coloured silk brocade dress that enhances her olive complexion; the clean lines and large application on the back give the dress an elegant but sober look.

Shoes are a touch of brilliance: we used two models of shoes, both handcrafted by Massimo Calzature, an Italian company that produces custom-made bridal shoes.

Even the jewels are unique pieces made by a local craftsman in gold and mother-of-pearl: we particularly liked this stone for its opacity and ductility.
