Colourful Same-Sex Wedding in Milan
The Story: This styled shoot was born out of the desire to do something unique for a same-sex wedding. In bridal magazines and websites classic styles are common. However, this creative team wanted to bring a fresh and modern take to bridal design by celebrating the love of two women with a dynamic spirit in an urban context. Their worldly and eccentric personalities are reflected by the different pastel and neon colours that are central to this shoot.
The Location: The metropolitan Italian city of Milan. This shoot took place in a beautiful and refined studio called ‘Cross Studio’ and also el fresco in one of the most iconic and modern squares of Milan, Piazza Gae Aulenti. The indoor space chosen was similar to an industrial style loft.
The Vibe: Urban pop. Saturated eye-popping colour combined with modern textures like acrylics, feathers and dried flowers makes this the perfect celebration for strong women. Confident, unexpected and pretty, this is a celebration of modern queer love.
The Details: The table setting boasts eclectic tableware with eye-catching iridescent details that complement the stationery suite and non-traditional fuschia wedding gown from Millia London. This colourful palette is enhanced by dried floral arrangements that blend perfectly with the contemporary styling. Rings were exchanged under a cloud of dried flowers bursting with colours.
Tips & Highlights:
- The non-traditional bursts of neon colour throughout the wedding styling.
- A bold yet feminine look with a fresh choice of a colourful bridal gown and a jumpsuit, ideal for a same-sex wedding.
- If you have a stunning natural backdrop, like the city of Milan, think about how to incorporate this into your wedding photos especially if the location has special significance.
