Surrounded by magnificent gardens, Villa Buonaccorsi in the Italian province of Macerata with its sweeping halls and beautiful frescoes, orangeries, fountains and rare plants is probably one of the most beautiful European settings for a romantic bridal shoot. Photographer Julie Paisley, together with event organiser Federica Beni, staged breathtakingly beautiful photos and showed how perfectly the earrings from our JUVELAN Modern Bride collection suit a classic bridal styling.
We have been admirers of Federica Beni's work for a long time. When she asked whether JUVELAN wanted to be part of this romantic editorial shoot in Bella Italia, we didn't have to think twice. We trusted her completely and were absolutely blown away by the results. Together with American photographer Julie Paisley, florist and stylist Janna Brown from Nashville and an their international team, Federica staged a truly magical setting with wedding dresses from the Israeli couture label Dana Harel. These photos truly blew us away. Every photo shows the same amount of attention to detail that we bring to every piece of our jewellery. For us, these are pictures that the soul and immediately awake a strong desire to go to Italy!
We particularly like how trend-consciously our earrings "Esther", "Samantha", "Kerstin" and "Christine" – all from our current collection for modern brides - were used in this very classically beautiful setting. This shooting proves once again that a traditional bridal look can be so much more than white pearls. In combination with a romantic styling and high-quality couture wedding dresses, these pictures show a modern yet highly romantic look. It is simply stunning to see how each set of earrings complements and completes the different dresses and stylings perfectly. The long earrings "Christine" and "Samantha" look great with a traditionally parted up-do. "Kerstin" takes centre-stage when worn with a combed-back, wavy ponytail. And "Esther" with its golden ornaments comes alive in wavy hair worn loosely down. Each combination creates a highly individual look that suits brides who want to mix things up a little and combine traditional elements with trendy highlights.
Looking at the photos, we still dream of escaping from grey Germany to sunny Italy. We hope these romantic pictures inspire and delight you as much as us.
