From Eventoile Destination Weddings: Immerse in the Balearic archipelago, the isle of Ibiza has always held an aura of mystical appeal for us. As we dreamt of shooting in this perfect location surrounded with the Mediterranean Sea, we wanted to create a captivating getaway with a modern couple, who wished for an irresistible destination for their most special celebration.
Browsing the streets
With the sun still up, we headed up to the luxurious Hacienda La Xamena, a natural enclave that seems come out from the perfect summer dream. We stepped through the frame into an idyllic landscape to pay homage to Dalt Vila (the Upper Town) which is as charming as it its mysterious, with our stunning bride strolling its entangled streets and whitewashed walls. Before the evening preparations, Elizabeth took advantage of the stunning pool of the location and relaxed while enjoying the breathtaking view of her beloved island.
balancing nature and luxury
From the wedding planner, Leandra Svizzero: Since the moment I started thinking of this project I knew I wanted to transmit a perfect balance between nature and luxury. In order to achieve this, I went on a treasure hunt for some special objects that would anchor powerful meanings. Such is the case of the compass that was photographed with the stationary. One of Ibiza’s main points of interest is the location of Es Vedrà, believed to be the third most magnetic spot on earth. Locals have a strong sense of energy and mystic, so I wanted this to be reflected throughout the day. Another anchor element was the napkin holder, which integrated the two main concepts of design with the dark stone and golden circle. Other details, such us the feather golden spoon and the modern chairs in rustic material, also helped creating a mystic atmosphere.
organic cotton + local blooms
All the stationery was printed in organic cotton with a delicate shade of blue tones representing a modern and deeper meaning of the sea. The fabric was also used by Russell to write his wedding vows. If you think about it, he wrote his most sincere love words in one of the purest and most delicate elements nature has given us, how romantic is this? For the flower selection, I used local greenery and pampas grass with a touch of sophistication given by the orchids. I matched this selection with golden and raw candlesticks with light grey candles and a natural silk runner.
