Timeless & Romantic Wedding Inspiration

Inspiration Shoots

Japanese Infused Spring Garden Wedding Editorial

Maria Francesca Nitti Photography

Today’s wedding inspiration shoot blends two beautiful cultures to create an unforgettable feast for the eyes! Set in the grounds of the historic Villa Gentiloni, in the Marche region of Italy, this timeless Spring celebration brims with romantic oriental details. From the origami escort cards and ceremony backdrop to the bride’s wedding dress and the incredible cherry blossom wedding cake, it is a delight from start to finish!

Let me introduce you to Eugenia from L’Avverasogni Weddings&Events, who will tell you what inspired this elegant take on the orient…. “Japan, a land so far and yet so admired for it’s culture, the perfect synthesis between modernity and tradition. Homeland of Manga and the lotus flower, of bright metropolis and temples immersed in green, of technology and progress together with a discrete and elegant ceremonial, mystery and discipline. The charm that comes with it is incomparable.

Organizing this inspiration shoot was like merging two different worlds but both so rich in history: the delicacy and levity of oriental decorations and the ancient suggestion of a historical Italian venue, Villa Gentiloni, immersed in the Marche countryside.

The suggestion of candle light, greenery and soft pastel colors for a lush but understated decoration. Drapes of organza and Japanese silk for the wonderful robe of the bride and for the table setting. A special fil-rouge to unite internal and external spaces and to coordinate every single stylistic choice of marriage. The perfect idea for those who love a sober style, for those who avoid excesses but want to leave an indelible mark in their memory and on their guests.”


Isn’t it lovely?? If you’d like to see more why not take a moment to to watch this lovely video from Andrea Marziani that captures all of the eastern elegance and Italian romance of the day…..

A big round of applause to the creative team (listed below) who lent their talents to create this vision of Japanese romance and elegance. And especially to photographer Maria Francesca Nitti for capturing it so perfectly and allowing me to share it with you here. If you love Maria’s style of fine art photography and would like to see more of her work then you should take a peek at this timeless wedding editorial in an 18th Century Italian villa here on Chic Vintage Brides before popping over to her website at www.mariafrancescanitti.com – and be sure to find and follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

If you’re considering an Italian wedding (or elopement) and are looking for more inspiration from this beautiful country then you will love Valerie & Jesse’s Tuscan elopement, or for something a little different yet no less romantic Beatrice & Gabriele’s on Viverone Lake, Italy. And this Spring wedding editorial at an Italian winery is not to be missed!
