Romantic Boho-Bride at Sicily 


White stone stairs, playful arches, azure blue tiles and a dreamlike view over the city to the sea get us in the right mood for this romantic boho-bride.

The sky and ocean seem to merge, shimmering in all shades of blue. Silence. No bird, not even the rushing waves reach our ears. It´s the arrival of the bride who makes this house in the mountains alive.

A life of contrasts. Her dress competes with the colors of the water, pink blossoms with the island´s flawless white. In the end all come together harmonically on the table: on paper goods, dishes and centerpiece.

„Sicily is a territory full of stunning landscapes, ancient architectures and culinary traditions.“ the photographers Erica and Marco of Les Amis Photo rave about the Island. „This island in the middle of Mediterranean Sea is surrounded by smaller isles, little gems to discover. Like Panarea, the most glamorous and together wild among the seven Aeolian Islands, that we chose as the perfect set to this shoot.“

Event planner Scent of Orchid turned the marvelous Hotel Raya into an even more adorable gem which shined in the most beautiful colors of the island under the Italian sun.

„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 precious dress was kindly lend by Christos Costarellos, a Greek designer whose collections combine a sophisticated style for a boho but stylish woman.

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, falling down to the floor and slightly moved by the sea breeze. Same shade of light blue were used in the hand-dyed silk ribbon of the bouquet.

The big and pretty messed bouquet was created expressly 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 complete the table decor. Place setting was realized using a Sicilian ceramic tile as table mat matched with glasses and cutlery kindly lend by Noeliya rental company.
