The legend of Quinta das Lagrimas
One of the most beautiful love stories ever told took place in the small city of Coimbra, Portugal.
The protagonists were Prince Pedro, a Portuguese man that lived during the 14th century, and a Spanish girl, Inés de Castro. They loved a lot each other but as many love tragedies, their most beloved ones didn’t want them to be together. The legend says that here Inés cried for last time while being pierced by the daggers of the killers sent by King Afonso, Pedro’s father. Her blood still colors the stone-bed of the fountain that was born of her tears – the tears that gave the name to the romantic estate where this wedding inspiration shoot took place: Quinta das Lagrimas.When Pedro became king he crowned Inês as Queen of Portugal, post-mortem. He made everyone on court to kiss her dying corpse. Afterwards, he revenged her killing the soldiers of his father that stole the life of his love.

Magical places of France
We had the pleasure of being able to collaborate in this French editorial organized by Murielle of Intens’Events. We work with a warm, welcoming and personal concept. The styled shoot took place near the famous city of Pezenas, in La Seigneurie de Peyrat, one of the oldest vineyards of the area. This family estate covers from the Roman era until the seventeenth century, when the real castle was built, an incredible architecture work. It is surrounded by splendid fields of vineyards and olive trees.
The colour palette was inspired by the same place: soft olive green, dark green and dark purple representing the strains and grapes, vibrant red and light pink for its excellent wines and pale yellow to enhance the simple beauty of the place. The floral arrangements were elegant and romantic, but informal and wild. For the kitchen we chose the Modena chargerplate in nude colour, off white tableware, copper cutlery and our old Rosaline glasses. As a complement to the calligraphy you can see, with a timeless and elegant touch.
An inspiring editorial for brides.

This is the environment surrounding the Palacio de la Vega, a quiet, beautiful, idyllic place to get married. We could not have better tandem for this project, on the one hand we worked with stylist & florist Mila and on the other hand, behind the camera, Arturo. Both are behind Diluart, people with great sensitivity and delicacy.
For this project the color palette was white, gold and a touch of blood on the flowers and stationery. A very elegant palette.
The natural wood table, with a large floral centrepiece accompanied by a soft table runner and gilt candlesticks. Our Modena tableware, stylized Elba glasses and our matt gold-plated cutlery had just shaped the table.
We wish these pictures inspires you for your special day.

Nostalgia, sweetness and sophistication.
These are the words that best define today’s scene.
Throughout this image of ‘The Experialist’ we have chosen an aesthetic which conveys a story steeped in romanticism, with an atmosphere of decadence but also plenty of charm.
What better location for such a scene than ‘La Baronía’, whose castle will transport you back in time to witness a lovers fairytale. The thin light of the palacial interior set beside its cloudy exterior add an element of mystery to the piece.
As well as the palette of colours which flow from pastels of powdered rose, to celadon green and cream. Elements of ancient gold, crystal and dark wood are present in the decoration.
The head table is a lavish haven of love for the couple to relish, adorned with verses of Jane Austen and intimate vows to witness the occasion.

Wedding inspiration in a Mediterranean atmosphere
The shoot designer, Bodas Deluxe describe it like this:
“I was born in the Mediterranean, surrounded by calm, green landscape and a beautiful blue sky. If I close my eyes I can feel the wind blowing through its leafy woods and people laughing in their picturesque stone streets. That’s why we wanted to recreate an elopement inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle. An intimate wedding just for the couple and their witnesses. A real slow wedding with a Mediterranean vibe.
Our bride wakes up in a canopy bed and starts slowly to prepare her wedding. In the backyard of the house the groom in love waits impatient for his future wife. Everything that surrounded is natural, organic, unadorned. A beautiful rustic house, a table with homemade desserts, calligraphy on a cottonpaper and a table with an elegant and rustic feeling under a flower cascade of leafs and soft flowers.
The color palette that inspired us were: a romantic soft pale pink, natural hazelnut and distinct greens, which blends perfectly with the vitality of the vegetation.”

The tradition returns, presidential tables.
Today’s editorial is an inspiration for your presidential table. We love presidential tables, a trend that will gradually have more presence the following seasons. Bloggers like Miss Cavallier joined this trend on their wedding day.
The presidential table we show you today is for two, with a simple palette of different greens and small touches of gold to give light. We chose two classic armchairs instead of the traditional chair. We combined two linen tablecloths, one of them with lace details that brings romanticism to the table. The dinnerware is made up by our Modena crockery with the Florencia Oro & Verde, the Elba stylized cups and the Oro mate cutlery. To finish the set we could not miss a centrepiece of white flowers and a set of old candelabras.
We hope we encouraged you to get the presidential tables back.
