Case Study: Romantic Amalfi Coast Elopement Inspiration


Sketch by Monica Naclerio
It is not always easy to catch the inspiration for an event, but the secret is only one: don't search but let yourself be found! What do I mean? Simple: when you open your mind and your heart and free your ideas and your sensations, the good idea will come by itself. It's all in your way of feeling.

For example, I have had a classical education. I didn't like in a particular way the Latin language but it fascinated me! I have never counted the number of poets, philosophers and warlords I fell in love of during the five years at the high school, but they were a lot! How could I resist to the charm of Alexander the Great or Cicero?
They are my story, the ancient history of my land, my Magna Graecia.
That's why, for the first Amalfi Soirée shooting, I've chosen as inspiration a legend of the Greek-Roman world.

Set in an ancient watchtower in the Gulf of Maiori, in Amalfi Coast, the  shooting has been an opportunity for "singing", through the myth of the sirens, the woman, always seen as different and incomprehensible, sometimes inferior or animalistic, but also powerful, seductive and worthy of veneration.

The sea-themed paintings by Victor Nizovtsev has been the starting point for the creation of the chromatic palette, an ocean of azures and dusty blues, enlivened by gold. The concept of "handmade" has guided the stylistic choices and the selection of the suppliers, all small companies that still work as they used to do, creating quality, tailored and customized products. Even our photographer, Sergio Sorrentino, a true "artisan of light", has adopted this  philosophy as his way of working, impressing every shot on film.

As regards the table, I wanted that it had a touch of real life, thanks to details such as crumbs and folds of the tablecloth, and, at the same time, that it were refined and organic: the circular floral installation, very popular this year, is an elegant background for a candlelit dinner but also a fairy-tale frame through which you can admire the horizon, enveloped in the salty aroma and lulled by the sound of the waves.

You can admire the end result, after some significant changes, on the blog Fine Art Elizabeth Anne Designs who kindly published our photos at this link.
