The team shares, Designer Scent of Orchid imagined this relaxed but sophisticated shoot, inspired by the colors and atmosphere of the island. Fab wife and husband of Les Amis Photo joined the creative team in an enthusiastic way, adding their unique vision to the photos and backstage video.
Raya Hotel, who hosted this shoot set, is a timeless structure and a cozy place. Perched on the hillside, the hotel is a small Aeolian village emerging from a garden of olive trees, lemon trees and bougainvillea, leaning with all its terraces towards Stromboli volcano.
We opted for a color palette in the shades of cobalt blue and white, with touches of magenta in the flowers and light blue for details. The impalpable but precious dress was kindly lend by Christos Costarellos, a Greek designer whose collections combine a sophisticated style for a boho but stylish woman. Our bride Victoria has been wonderfully appraised by the make-up of Mel Kinsman and hair style of Patricia Soper. With its delicate and refined headband, French accessory designer Orchidee de Soie completed the bridal look.
The impalpable sensation was maintained on the table by the marvelous silk runner, provided by the same French artisan, falling down to the floor and slightly moved by the sea breeze. The same shade of light blue was used in the hand-dyed silk ribbon of the bouquet. The big and pretty messed bouquet was inspired by mediterranean flora, with wild green foliage of Eucalyptus and Olive leaves combined with a touch of glam given by white and magenta Peonies and Ornithogalum flower. The equal combination was realized for the fill-but-light centerpiece that completed the table decor. The place setting came together using a Sicilian ceramic tile as a table mat matched with glasses and cutlery kindly lended by Noeliya rental company. The table set was completed by the beautiful calligraphy by Betty Soldi.
