Modern Baroque is the vibe for today’s blog post and it is swoon-worthy! This beautiful Italian wedding has two very different vibes running through and both are as beautiful as one another, definitely one for modern couples looking for something a little bit different when it comes to their wedding day. Its bold, dreamy and full of drama! We catch up with the team behind the shoot including the trio behind the concept, wedding planners Mademoiselle Mariage di Cinzia Iannantuoni and Iaia Giangrande, and photographer Amarilis Photography…
“We decided to organize this styled shoot inspired by the artistic beauties of Lecce, Puglia, Italy characterized by the unique Baroque architecture in the world which developed between the end of the 16th century and the first half of the 18th century. It is recognizable for the opulence of its architectural decorations which were intended to surprise and stimulate fantasy and imagination. The shooting is based on the contrast between the minimalist floral setting and the details of the opulence of Baroque architecture and precious antique objects to give rise to a romantic and decadent taste. The color palette is based on natural colors in the warmest shades of beige, gold and deep blue present in the stationery and precious details.”
Style Tips –
- Use ancient objects, preferably of family tradition;
- Revive them by making different uses
- use a natural color palette embellishing it with gold touches.
“It was shot in a residential building in Lecce, Palazzo Romano, a magnificent example of Lecce Baroque architecture. The prestigious baroque palace belonged to the Romano family for centuries and is located in the heart of the historic center of the town, adjacent to the Roman theater. It works for elegant, chic and intimate weddings. For the following topics please write a small paragraph and include one in each of the areas for couples who are wanting to achieve this look for their wedding day. A ‘get the look’ vibe!”

“The photography is based on daylight, but always used live; the use of very low, soft light from windows is preferred, in order to make the atmosphere more suggestive we used the smoke machine.”
The Stylist – Mademoiselle Mariage and Iaia Giangrande
“The background of the first part of the shooting is the ancient entrance hall full of ancient family objects (ancient doors of the ‘600, remnants of their childhood and musical instruments) where the setting was designed as if it were a minimal vertical forest with wild plants typical of the Apulian territory: the ferla. The symbolic ceremony has a decadent romantic mood in contrast with the glam rock mood that finds its maximum expression in the party that takes place on the terrace of the building. In addition to the decadent romanticism, the fil rouge of the whole day is the dreamy smoke blanket of the first part characterized by the slow and sensual rhythm that becomes multicolored smoke with a pressing rhythm and special effects.”
The Flowers – Donato Chiriatti
The floral design is based on the ‘less is more’ philosophy and involves the use of flowers that grow spontaneously in nature: we used ferla to create a minimal vertical forest; dried flowers (hortensia) in order to create a decadent mood and lagurus with golden touches for the bouquet.”
The Stationery – Focus Calligrafia
“The style of the entire stationery is a mix of vintage elements (calligraphy with glass dip pen) in gold color on blue cardboard and the modernity of the material used (acetate and glossy sheet).”
The Dress – Mino Minafra
“We chose a sophisticated and romantic bridal gown hand made in Italy by the great stylist Peter Langner, a simple silhouette, but full of golden and precious embroidery. The look is perfectly completed by precious jewels and a powerful flower crown made by natural element.”
The Hair and Make Up – En beautè parrucchieri and Vania Tommasi
“For the amber-skinned Spanish bride the make up artist used a natural-colored makeup with a light smoky eye, pink lips and a highlighter in key points of the face. Hair styling: a natural but tidy updo with clean lines.”
Videographer – Giuseppe Piserchia Films
“The video is based on the choice of colours and lights such as the photography; the contrast -that is the basis of our shooting- finds maximum expression in the editing where the slow rhythms of music and words contrast with the rapid passages of scenes to find their exploit in the fast rhythm of the party.”
