A Wedding Fable

A utopian scenario and idyllic dresses compose this photoshoot created by Loredana Mantello and her team during a visit to her home country.

A dreamy wedding in tune with nature is where this series of photographs from Loredana Mantello takes us. Shot at La Finestra Sul Fiume located on the banks of the river Mincio in Valeggio Sul Mincio, Italy. A landscape where the region’s hills reveal Venetian scenery with vineyards and gardens, among very green lawns and sparkling waters.

Whimsical wedding gowns and artistic dresses and accessories lend an otherworldly vibe to the shoot. The dresses are simple, with a gauzy effect paired with natural flowers to best represent the embodiment of nature. “I believe that to be creative, we need a lot of different sources for unique ideas and insights and, in this photoshoot, we had Monet, the French impressionist painter, as the central inspiration,” says Loredana.

The green location, a place where weddings are celebrated, enveloped the concept. “These images take me to a parallel world where water lilies, pond flowers, butterflies, trees, and dreamlike scenes made me imagine heaven on earth – a natural gift for our eyes,” she adds.
