Neo-Gothic Bridal Inspirations


With a touch of magic that gives us goose bumps, breathtaking bridal inspirations of contemporary history bring the era of Neo-Gothic to modern times. With sure instincts and a sense for beauty planner Roberta Cavaliere of Artefice di momenti felici, brought together what seems to belong together.

And so, behind the ornate façade of the imposing Castello del Roccolo in Busca, two worlds met that could not be more different, but complete each other like a missing puzzle piece.

Like day and night, black and white, light and shadow, the extravagance, playfulness, and beauty of Gothic would not exist without the simplicity, reserve, and clarity of the present.

Wedding planner Roberta Cavaliere made this tension, the play of contrasts, visible in a very special way: „The shooting inspires two different kinds of bride. The first one is total white, with gold elements, an important wedding dress which perfectly fits with a crown made of precious stones and with a bouquet made with black and soft pink roses and fern.“ she reveals and adds:„The second one, total black, with an asymmetrical wedding dress made with valance and transparencies, combined with a neo-gothic headgear and with a bouquet made of silver dollar branches.“

In addition to the extraordinary dresses and the elaborate head pieces, it is above all the artful floral arrangements of La Bottega di Davide Fiorentino that astonish us.

Photographer Carla Penoncelli accompanied the exciting journey through history and captured every little detail in such an impressive way just for us.
