Written by Lavarini Marcella from Fairtyaleweddings
This shoot was inspired by a wedding I planned last year for a lovely couple, Giulia and Gianluigi in Italy. I met Giulia, an etoile (ballet dancer) in Milan, and Gianluigi, a Pilates teacher, last year along with Gianluigi’s adorable daughters, Anna and Chiara. The little girls asked me, and Giulia agreed, for a stunning location on the lake. They wanted something romantic, glamorous, sparkling, fashionable and just a tad unconventional. The girls also had a very special request: They wanted a first dance since Giulia was an etoile. The wedding was absolutely perfect and I was so inspired that I wanted to share the story of this wedding through a shoot at Isola del Garda, the biggest island on Lake Garda, Italy.
