Venice Mask-themed Wedding Inspiration in dark red

Venice Carnaval Mask Wedding Inpiration from THE Studio Wedding Lab_0014

 

I know it’s pretty much spring… but nonetheless, some Carnival-inspired and masked-themed wedding inspiration from Italy is always nice to look at, don’t you think? This styled shoot from THE Studio Wedding Lab reminds me of opulent masquerade balls in Venice in bygone times…

From the wedding designer: “The idea for this styled shoot was to create an air of mystery with the charm of Venetian masks with their elegant and polished style. The masks of the shoot are completely hand-made using lace, tulle and other parts of bridal dresses. We used part of bridal dresses also for the chairs. The mask element is present also on the wedding stationery, from the wedding invitation to the menu. The mask wedding theme is completed by bordeaux shades, a perfect color for the location in the shooting; Villa Quintieri is a nineteenth century villa in Carolei, Cosenza (Southern Italy). One year ago my own wedding was celebrated at Villa Quintieri, so for me it was with great emotion that I went back there for my job.”

Classically lovely blush wedding in Barcelona

Barcelona country wedding in blush at La Garriga de Castelladral_0014

 

All you romantic and pink-loving classic brides out there, this one is for you. Xenia, originally from Catalonia and blogger at Olivia’s Choice, and Jeff, were classmates at City University of Hong Kong. Cupid struck after two years of studying together, and they’ve been together ever since. Their blush nuptials were held at La Garriga de Castelladral, a beautiful country venue near Xenia’s hometown and about 40 min. from Barcelona. Noemi Jariod was behind the lens to capture this classic affair and the exceptionally pretty bride… Enjoy!

“It’s not common at all in Spain to have bridesmaids, yet I couldn’t imagine my wedding without my best friends my side, and I’m so glad I did have bridesmaids, it’s one of the best memories I keep of my big day. It seems bridesmaids are becoming increasingly popular these days, and I couldn’t be happier about it, it really makes the whole experience sky rocket to another level!”

Did you notice that the layered bows on the bride’s vintage Louboutins match her blush sash?

The bride on finding the venue: I did my research online and narrowed it down to 2 places. As soon as I stepped in La Garriga de Castelladral, I knew that was it.

Any advice for destination brides-to-be? Says Xenia: “You need to be ok with the fact that not all your friends are going to make it to your wedding if you go for a destination wedding. Only 10 people came from my husband’s side, which we were totally cool with, considering how Hong Kong is on the other side of the planet!”

Apulia Wedding in fuchsia, blue and white

Southern Italy Masseria Potenti Wedding from Les Ami Photo_0017

 
Good morning my belles! Let’s get right to it - I have three things to say about this Apulia wedding:
1) If that’s not a dream venue, I don’t know what is.
2) The fuchsia and blue color scheme is so beautiful against the all white backdrop.
3) I am loving the dreamy imagery of Les Ami Photo.

What is your favorite part of these Southern Italy nuptials?

From the photographers: “Asia and Averil are living in London but decided to get married with a symbolic ceremony, in the south of Italy, in Puglia. Masseria Potenti is an amazing country house in Puglia and was restored with a vintage and stylish taste. Everything was perfect, there was a beautiful full moon and the atmosphere was magic!”
