Two Brides in an Italian Villa
We recently spoke at a Michael & Carina Workshop in Ancona, Italy (read all about it here!) and are thrilled to bring you part two of three - these stunning and stoic Italian maids. Incredible Stella of Organic Brides worked her hair and makeup magic on these beauties with bridal looks that complemented the custom Enchanted Atelier hairpieces perfectly. The intentional and purposeful styling by Honey & Cinnamon made everything fit together with heart infused in every moment. Read below for some of the inspiration behind this editorial...
From Michael & Carina Photography: "Inspiration for this shoot came from a series of paintings of maidens in gardens by the Romantic period painter John Waterhouse, as well as from the idyllic gardens & villa of the Villa Spada. Our subjects portrayed almost ethereal, mirrorlike expressions, while ISA Events created bouquets inspired by the environment."
