Awaking Beauty Art Inspired Shoot
Known for his mystical details and enigmatic patterns, Awaking Beauty interprets masterpieces by the late artist, Eyvind Earle. Known for his background illustrations and styling of Disney’s classic animated films in the ’50s, this artistic treasure trove influenced the shoot.
Mila and Stephan, the photographers behind Vivid Symphony, took Disney’s classic animation and turned it into a wedding celebration. The duo are always drawn to elegance and timeless imagery so they immediately formed a team of local wedding suppliers to bring to life their imagination.
The Classic Inspiration
Mila and Stephan commenced their creative agenda by selecting a venue that fit their classic and opulent narrative. That’s how they found Villa Kontor.
The Castle-Inspired Backdrop
A royal standard, Villa Kontor ticked all the boxes for this Disney-inspired dream wedding. Subtle in its details, yet still a fantastical nod to the films with which we grew up. Intricate interiors, rich-textured walls, and 100 years of architectural history—this gem exudes grace.
The Luxurious Setup
Like the artists they are, Mila and Stephan knew the tablescape must be as polished as everything else, and that’s where Marry in Love came in. Lucky for them, the venue conveniently features an Art Deco table that served as a perfect stage for the decorative ensemble.
Marry in Love embellished the marble table with fancy vases from Meissen and perched pink flowers on top of these porcelains. The designers then combined these centrepieces with golden plates, chic cutlery, and deluxe name cards by The Lisserei. We can’t help but be captivated, especially with the splendid chandelier illuminating the whole table set up.
Picture-Perfect Bridal Look
Of course, the shoot would not be complete without its real-life Aurora, and the team chose just the perfect model to embody the charm and elegance of the celebrated princess. She wore a Rara Avis puff-sleeved dress that highlights a mesmerizing combination of tulle and silk. Die Blumenbinderei also arranged a fine art bouquet filled with anemones, peonies, and daffodils. She certainly looks like she stepped right out of a romantic fairytale, ready to live with her beloved prince in their happily ever after.
The Mind-Blowing Outcome
Every minute details of this editorial shoot exceeded Mila and Stephan’s expectations. From the gorgeous tablescape to the stationery’s timeless elegance, this styled shoot proved that a wedding inspired by a masterpiece is one for the books. Who could deny the charm of bringing the classic Sleeping Beauty into a 21st-century wedding?
