This aspirational, romantic Italian shoot is a blend of Bohemian style, with cool elegant style against this picturesque wild backdrop. I was overjoyed when I was asked to be a part of this styled shoot in Lago di Braies, South Tyrol. When I saw the moodboard, there was no option other than that I wanted to create a suite especially for this Italian romance shoot. Combining luxury with Bohemian feels this setting is truly breathtaking and the outcome is something I am so, so excited to share with you all.
A real life couple modelled on the day, the beautiful Stefanie and her husband Raul. From idyllic moments captured as the pair rowed out into the lake, creating the most romantic and dreamy stills, (can I get married again please?). There's almost a serene but slightly moody feel to the setting, very true to the region this is whimsical yet emotive photography at it's best, shot perfectly by Sarah Longworth Photography.

Moving on from the lake, to the pine trees and the mountains views, exuding greenery and wild florals, the Col Pradat Lodge sets the scene for the latter part of the day. All styling and planning was done by the talented Pamela Pizzardo who is based over in South Tyrol and knows the area very well.
When creating the stationery for this shoot I wanted to make it true to the location and setting. A combination of deep burgundy and emerald hues with a marbled backdrop, paired with white script type and golden tones. The idea and inspiration was to make the suite personal to the couple, the minimalist menu and moody green place card combination finishes each table setting off with Italian nods to each course on the menu. White ink pressed onto handmade burgundy and deep green envelopes too, finished lastly with a minimalist thank you card, lightly kissed by natural sunlight.
This collection is called the Tempest Collection and all items will be readily available on my shop and Etsy in the upcoming weeks.
