The Secret Garden: Fine Art Glasshouse Wedding Inspiration

Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration by Monica Leggio and BiancoAntico 51

Glasshouses make the most beautiful wedding venues, and lately we’ve been seeing more and more gorgeous ceremonies and receptions taking place in conservatories, orangeries and greenhouses.

And if you have your heart set on a romantic glasshouse celebration, then today’s wedding inspiration will certainly seal the deal.

Captured by Monica Leggio, with planning and styling by BiancoAntico and production by maMa mariage, this fine art shoot from Italy is endlessly romantic, with floral styling throughout, ethereal attire and luxe touches.

Pure unadulterated eye candy, this shoot is such a treat, scroll down to swoon over the beautiful photography, and read more about the unique concept and atmospheric setting behind it, from Viviana Tarantino of BiancoAntico.

The Styled Shoot

We wanted to tell a love story, in its highest and most spiritual meaning as well as in its earthly and sensual aspect.

This story goes hand in hand with the story of a symbolic garden and draws its inspiration from it.

This Temple of Nature was built in 1920 by the Italian Architect De Vico and is based on the two energies of life and creation: masculine and feminine, yin and yang.

As in Feng- Shui theories, feminine energies live in caves and sources, while masculine energies live in trees and woods.

The Spiritual Ceremony

At the entrance of the garden there is a fountain (representing the feminine): the water, also evoked by the pale blue tones of the bridal dress, comes out from the cave, representing a woman’s uterus.

Here is where the feminine and the masculine energies find themselves, dancing together and revealing the key message of the garden: the alchemic transformation of lead into gold, meaning the transformation of the physical world into the spiritual world.

The Nuptial Banquet

Inside the garden there is an ancient greenhouse, where we chose to set up the nuptial banquet.

Handmade plates, pieces of cutlery, stationery: all of these things draw inspiration from the alchemic symbol of gold.

As for the stylistic choices were concerned, we used empire chandeliers, brass candle holders, rich floral arrangements, candles, fruit and berries, soft fabrics, in order to strengthen the contrast with the decadent industrial structure of the greenhouse.

A luxurious, eclectic style, all surrounded by the charm of the ancient.
