The thing you realize very quickly when you start your wedding planning is that your venue easily dictates the rest of the details (including your dress). When you have a really grand estate like the one shown in this beautiful shoot, it allows you a broad range of choices. We love the choices made here – allowing the dresses and beautiful florals to be the focus, and the venue to be a sumptuous background that provided the rest of the beauty.
From the photographer, Trinh:
This editorial took place in the Italian paradise of Lake Como at the elegant Villa Balbiano. Our real couple, Bianca and Francesca are deeply in love, and adore Italy, traveling, and classic fashion. The extravagant natural setting offered a perfect mix of scenery without needing to bring much else in. The clear blue water, the sloping hills of the mountains, and the blooming flowers and plants were perfection. We kept the styling and directions classic and elegant to go along with the grand villa. Then all we had to do was capture the chemistry of the couple.
