When else can you be so fabulously glamorous than your wedding day? Olga Makarova, a very favorite photographer asked this questions when producing this regal, Italian wedding inspiration. Selecting a Medici palace in Tuscany, this styled shoot shows how you can put on your own royal wedding.

Inspired by 18th and 19th Russian stories, still-life paintings and the opulent film “Russian Ark” Olga sourced vendors to put together the most regal of wedding goods fit for a ballroom. Our bride wears flowing Ela Siromascenko gown fit for a goddess and the way it twirls, wow! Bright kumquat, pomegranate, and expensive shades of plum fill the punchy floral spread.

The bride’s makeup is clean and glowing, while her hair is romantically tousled with delicate pearl tiaras and detailed hair combs. We greatly admire this inspiration for short-haired brides (guys, I just cut my hair!) showing how even a modern cut can fit a vintage, royal wedding scene.

From Olga Makarova

This photo session was inspired by the movie “Russian Ark” and beautiful renaissance still life paintings. For this photo session, I was looking for a villa with some splendid fresco on the walls and was fortunate to find Villa Medici Buti in Tuscany.

I grew up on the books of Tolstoy, Chekhov and Pushkin and was imagining with that novels those beautiful imperial balls from the 18th and 19th centuries. We imagined those elegant gentlemen and insanely beautiful fluttering dresses of refined ladies, waltzing pairs in love, and flowing sounds of the orchestra in the beautiful halls of the king’s palaces.

I miss that elegance and gallantry in our modern life and rejoice in finding that refinement in weddings.
