I am totally in love with Italy, so getting married there would be the stuff of dreams. But today’s Italian wedding inspiration shoot from Roberta Facchini explores a part of this beautiful country that I was not familiar with – and now I am now chomping at the bit to explore.
If you are planning a destination wedding then you simply have to read on, but there’s inspiration in there whatever your wedding destination (the blooms, the style, the pretty)…
As an Italian Wedding Photographer, I just adore Italy and the Le Marche region and this shoot is the result of my passion for this undiscovered area.
I wanted other people to experience and appreciate its beauty as much as I do and for this reason I decided to recreate an elegant, organic and romantic Italian wedding in Le Marche.
Urbino Resort, the location of the shoot, is a hidden gem located near Urbino, a Renaissance hill-town which is part of the Unesco World Heritage. This romantic Italian wedding was truly inspired by the venue. Urbino Resort is a quiet place immersed in the most peaceful surroundings, embraced by gold and green hills, along with vineyards, three lakes and centuries old oaks. It’s an Italian dream wedding venue and I fell in love the first second I stepped into it.
It’s the perfect venue to spend an entire wedding weekend with your guests for an Italian Destination Wedding in Le Marche.
The stunning bridal gown was created by Italian amazing designer Marianna Lanzilli. She recommended her ‘Dafne’ wedding dress, which is lined in silk and has a simple chapel train. The ivory vintage lace frills the simple silhouette that has a very low cut back that gives a modern and feminine accent to the bride. The back is decorated with the highest quality bridal silk flowers in the industry, created with the same fabric of the dress.
As a Wedding Photographer with a very romantic and natural style of photography, I love spending time with my brides during their bridal preparation. I love creating timeless and fine art bridal portraits and carefully photographing all the bridal details in an elegant and soft way.
For the bride and groom’s wedding portraits, I wanted to create soft, timeless and editorial portraits that would fit with my romantic wedding photography style. I wanted to highlight the authentic personalities and uniqueness of my couple while still capturing them in spontaneous moments.
The flowers, bouquet and table arrangements have been brilliantly created and styled by the phenomenal Annalisa Di Federico at ISA Events. The coral peonies are the splendid protagonist of the table centrepiece, and they are sweetly combined with peach carnation, viburnum and white dahlias. Soft spiraeas are framing the table centrepiece together with the succulent plants that recall the placeholders. The bride’s gorgeous compact bouquet features spiraeas, coral peonies, carnation and peach roses, viburnum, lisianthus and white dahlias. Everything is softly gathered together with an intense peach lace ribbon.
