Dante's Inspiration


In the Divine Comedy, Dante talks about two damned and lovers souls, condemned to be swept away by an infernal tempest for the eternity.
I've taken, from the literature, the metaphor of the two lovers as doves that fly towards their nest and I've developed it in various ways: from the illustration on the invitations to the feathered bouquet, from the cake surmounted by a nest until to make a real transformation of the female figure. So here's that angelic wings appear on the bride's back or she takes the flight in the surrealist photos of Luke Sharratt.
The last, significant detail is an old leather guestbook, that is a reference to the book that made Paolo and Francesco fall in love.
