“We do not remember days, we remember moments” – Cesare Pavese
Feeling nostalgic about the late 90’s lifestyle? Here is your exclusive chance to see it, feel it and live in it fully. La bride is showcasing the vintage-styled photography by the talented Katja & Simon Photography.
A majestic building, black n white touch, rusty door knob, green plants all around, classic mirrors and an air of mystery surrounding the whole place! No, you are not in Hogwarts! This is our new set for the editorial wedding in Botanical garden Sezana, Slovenia. The whole setup has a natural and pure appearance, void and untainted by any modern day artifice and superficiality. This is what makes such destination perfect for your wedding!
Adorned in a blue coat, bow tie, and loafers of the same shade, our model Sandi is seen standing amongst the greenery, staring into space. The sunlight is pouring through the glass window, adding gold streaks to his hair. Styled by Ikona Ljubljana, Sandi portrays the 90’s groom perfectly with his light beard and solemn yet handsome aura.
A figure of feminine beauty, Martina, dressed in white by eNVy Room and holding freshly bloomed flowers in her hands, seems to have filled the whole place with warmth and affection. Her very presence has made the setup come alive. Styling a wreath of flowers colored as vivid as white and red on her head, she smiles and her eyes sparkle brightly as she does so. She is a figure of delicacy standing next to her groom. When they laugh, the sunlight dances around everywhere in the garden, reverberating the love and trust of this relation. The white and green backdrop pronounces the couple’s presence as the only human forms among the plants. These plants add the needed texture with their varying leaves from pointed, thin needles to broad, droopy ones. However, the only flowers are those in the bride’s hands and on her head, making her a distinctive bearer of beauty amidst the green plainness.
Outlining the surroundings to suit the details of the theme, Nadjina vabila has done a great job by setting up everything, which will take you to your high school days in just a glance. The union of two passions is done well; the passion of study and the passion of love. There is a small story in the wedding session itself. Here the groom looks alike of a college student with an interest in book reading until he finds his soulmate, whose beauty is as subtle and exquisite as the morning sun and evening sky. The ways to communicate with his love are a typewriter and landline phone. They finally unite on their wedding day with candles, bouquets and a wedding cake adding a romantic touch.
Finally, taking the whole session a step further, the images not only display the decorations and theme but also the emotions of the bride and groom intricately. They are alone, yet not so alone! They have each other. She appears peaceful and contented in his arms and both of them are ready to begin their happily-ever-after!
After seeing the camera lens capture so many aspects, you will surely think about making your story known to the world in the same way and by giving us the chance to do it for you.
