A Romantic Editorial at Villa Vigna Contarena with Renaissance Vibes

This project at Villa Vigna Contarena is romantic, stunning, and elegant, with 17th-century frescos in the background.

This well-styled editorial shoot is sure to inspire with Renaissance-inspired details that are unique, breathtaking, elegant, and just a touch modern realized at a magical Villa Vigna Contarena.

But it wasn’t just the villa that became my inspiration. I was inspired by our wonderful model, Annachiara, whose beauty was expertly highlighted by makeup artist and hairstylist Samantha Pretto.

This project was styled and organized by a wedding planner, Elisa, who thought through every detail. When Elisa saw Villa Contarena, she immediately told me, “this project will be with Renaissance vibes,” so this is how we have the name to the photoshoot. The colors chosen here were warm tones of neutral colors with a few golden shades. To be precise, they are white, ivory, creamy white, ecru, gold. There were also added antique vases, golden containers, precious fabrics, and an Italian antique tray used as a background for stationary by Beautiful Letters

And obviously, the project would not happen without the stunning wedding dress by an Israelian designer FLORA. This dress is an ideal combination of romance, elegance, and sexuality. It fits perfectly into the decor of the villa and does not compete with the richly decorated walls. Its beauty was emphasized by absolutely unique and inimitable handmade jewelry by Daniella Vittori, which perfectly blend with the textures of the villa and resemble small details from frescoes.

In our project, we propose an idea of a small wedding, the decor of which will perfectly fit into the interior of the villa. For example, the wedding cake Camila created is a combination of golden ornaments and white flowers found in the bride’s image. One can find the same idea in the stationary and setups and every tiny detail of the project, such as the headpiece by Guinevere Vines, mise en place by Fenixlive, and macarons on the plats.

This shoot is the perfect fit for a bride seeking elegant, luxe inspiration for their wedding in Italy.
