Graceful Bridal Pool Session in Apulia
Welcome to the Masseria Montenapoleone, an idyllic spot in the middle of Italy’s vineyards – and the perfect place for stylish bridal inspirations from Apulia.
It is an experience for all the senses to indulge in the colors, scents and flavors of this Mediterranean oasis. Its driveway is lined with flowering shrubs, the stone house thrills with individual design and the garden entices with a wonderful view of the sea.
We meet a captivating bride. Her eyes are purposeful and yet loving. Her brown hair is loosely pinned up to bring her precious jewelry into effect. Her legs seem to be endless and perfect, under her exclusive wedding dress by Paolo Corona you only recognize her tender silhouette.
Here at the impressive pool, where the view is so unique and the surrounding nature so untouched, she will soon tie the knot next to terracotta pots and olive branches…
Even from far away you can recognize the handwriting of event stylist Joy Proctor in this wonderful summerly styled shoot, don´t you? How she effortlessly picks up on the natural colors of the surroundings, the special atmosphere of the region and the rustic – elegant charm of the location, and the way she incorporates all that in her usually perfect concept is simply unmistakable.
For her design, she used the given range of terracotta, beige and white, peppered with various green tones of the local flora and conjured up a heavenly light dinner table.
Among other fantastic vendors, she was supported by floral designer Flower Addict Angelica, who was inspired by the blossoming beauty of Apulia to design smaller and larger floral arrangements.
The grandiose result of this graceful pool session was captured by wedding photographer Gianluca Adovasio. Here we may sneak a peek at his collection.
