Wedding in Chianti – Olof and Anna Karin

This wedding took place in a country villa near Siena. The lovely couple come from Sweden and they contacted me a year and a half before the wedding date, so we had plenty of time to plan everything in the best detail!

Their whole family came over for the wedding, so it was a big family affair with lots of children and friends – they outnumbered the family! Anna Karin wanted a mystic feel to her wedding but with an elegant and sophisticated feel to it so they decided to have the tables decorated with long garlands of greenery and roses. It was beautiful and very elegant, despite the weather we have had this summer – even before the ceremony it was raining a bit. We are always prepared with a Plan B though and so we covered the tables and at luckily in the end they could have their ceremony under the Tuscan sun and then had their white wedding dinner surrounded by their many friends and touching speeches in the courtyard of the Villa before the party started.

Wedding stationery lavender invitations

It’s a great  pleasure for me to be finally able to release this shooting of  Adorn invitations: always loved cherry and burgundy as wedding color and in this really hot summer they remind me that fall is just couple of months away!!!

Adorn Invitation’s dreamy and ethereal fairytale of a styled shoot did not turn out as originally planned, and their styling team can say that they mean that in the most loving way. At first, the team’s mood board was filled with dark and brooding influences and rich shades of oxblood and cherry. As you can see, the end result was a feminine and romantic wonderland of lavender, blush and luxe metallics.
The team want our brides to take something important away from this change in their initial vision, which is to let your ideas run wild and free during your wedding planning. Things may not turn out exactly the way you originally hoped, but that doesn’t mean it won’t turn out magically and as it was meant to. Be open to the ever-changing direction your big day will take. Sometimes it’s like it has a life of its own, but as long as it’s authentic to you, let it happen as it may. Be open to adapting your initial ideas and desires. Though their ideas were ever-changing, they achieved the main objective that lied at the heart of the shoot which was to create something that the bridal world hasn’t been seen before.

The styled shoot embodied a sense of enchantment that truly captivates you with its luxe bohemian appeal that has been married with a strong lavender palette – a true yet unpredictable match made in heaven. Lavender in weddings is a hard colour to play with, but the team were dedicated to giving it a modern, chic and elegant appeal which we think they flawlessly achieved!
The contemporary touches of ivory and metallics against the pastel lavender shade and set amongst an enchanting lavender field created the right balance and was well harmonised. As a bride, Adorn advise you to not be afraid to go for a look that is unconventional or untraditional, as long as it’s in sync with you and your partner and rightly reflects the two of you as a couple, there’s no going wrong!
