Bridal Shakespearean inspiration | Venice, Italy


There are so many reasons to love La Serenissima from the glorious architecture lining the banks of the Grand Canal, to the unmistakably beautiful water paths, and the priceless marbled palaces. Yet to us as creatives, this dramatic large-scale city is a canvas that combines a love for attenuated proportion, a sensuous delight in haute couture, and pulsating energy that keeps a couple on the move, as though living in this magical destination is a never-ending theatrical play. Drawing inspiration from Shakespearean beauties whose portraits reflect the opulence and romance of the age, we wished to create an era-evoking, yet contemporary elegant editorial that would have a lasting effect on the grand manner fashion, fine art, and painterly light blend.
