Ethereal Seaside Wedding Ideas
From Monica Leggio
“I long for home, long for the sight of home.”
– Homer, The Odyssey
A windy solitary beach littered with pale logs. The faraway line of the horizon. A woman waiting. These were the main strong images that guided us in the process of building the final vision of the shoot.
The location, a windy beach in the Tuscan Maremma, perfectly suited the melancholic, ethereal mood we were looking for. With its ancient pines, pale dunes, and bleached logs scattered on the sand as tangible traces of a shipwreck. Just like a modern Penelope, a woman is waiting for her Odysseus to come back home from the sea, in a subtle, suspended atmosphere, filled with a soft, golden, almost unreal light.
All the styling part of the work, amazingly curated by Alessandra from Fluida Design, reflects this dreamy melancholic mood. It brings to the scene a delicate poetry, made up of objects and treasures that seem to be the remains of a wrecked ship coming from the sea.
The bridal gown was a strong element of our vision as well: we were looking for something that could represent a visual reference to the sea. We found this incredible gown from Cortana, made out of natural silk stripped by hand and sewn overlapping one another, creating a delicate silk wave effect.
