From the Designer & Stylist, Chiara of Scent of Orchid…The overall design and inspiration for this shoot started with the rustic elegance provided by La Baronia and the Barcelona surroundings, a typical Spanish style. When the amazing photographers The Komans asked me to join them in Spain for an editorial, I instantly fell in love with La Baronia’s architecture and view and proposed it to them.
We thought the best choice for the shoot would be to have a minimalist yet lush floral design. Liz of Siloh Floral was the perfect option when it came to choosing the floral designer who could create something beautiful and unique for our project. I wanted everything we brought into this shoot to represent Sandra and Mario’s love story while completely harmonizing with the architecture of the mansion – from La Baronia illustration that is included in the wedding invitation suite created by great professionals Ana and Alessandro from Carissimo Letterpress, to the vibrant and soft palette that contrasts the stone facade.
For the bridal styling, the bride wore a first look for the ceremony, with a long lace dress with a deep slit and Spanish style sleeves by Atelier Penhalta paired with exquisite lace décolleté by Bella Belle Shoes. My most favorite bridal accessories were the custom made crowns by Eden Luxe Bridal that perfectly framed the elegant beauty of Sandra. For jewelry, I wanted to keep it very simple, so I chose small, drop earrings by Eden Luxe paired with a simple gold engagement ring with a beautiful green gem from Italian artisan My Golden Age. The reception look is an Atelier Zolotas gown that enhances the sensuality of Sandra, with sheer and lace details and a soft tulle skirt.
For the ceremony and reception design, I wanted both spaces to be very simple, letting the couple be the eye-catchers. For the ceremony, Liz by Siloh Floral designed a beautiful hanging installation, under which the couple exchanged their vows. For the reception table, I styled a neutral and soft table set with gold accents, to allow the beautiful centerpiece by Siloh to be the focus of the table. Elegant chairs and table textiles from Nuovi Piatti complemented the flawless tabletop rentals from Canigueral. Claudia and Laura from Canigueral provided me all their beauties, allowing me to choose the delicate lace plates, the vintage glassware and gold vintage cutlery between their sophisticated collections. Each place was adorned with an elegant menu and calligraphy place cards. The celebration ended with a delicious cake by the very nice Eugenia by Lolita Bakery and a romantic last dance at sunset on the panoramic terrace of La Baronia.
From Murielle of Intens’ Events… When the Komans and I decided to collaborate on this beautiful creative project, I immediately thought that Chateau de Tourreau would be the perfect backdrop. Built-in the middle of the 18th century, the chateau has survived the French Revolution and has become over the years the beautiful gem we know today. With its green shutters and beautiful park, it really has something special. Right from the start, we decided to include that green in our main color palette.
Through the design, we wanted to celebrate Spring, the rebirth of nature. When we leave winter and we are only at the beginning of Spring, there’s a burst of life, trees are in bloom and it’s like we are surrounded by clouds of flowers. We wanted these blooms to be our central theme and we chose each element of the shoot accordingly.
