Sunny Sunflower Styling Photo Shoot

We did my first photo shoot session today, with a lovely photographer named Fabrizio. The shoot was a bit of a test run, to tell you the truth, featuring  the first style of menus, place-cards and wedding favours that I have designed and made by hand. This is a service we hope to be able to offer to Country Weddings Italy couples, working with them to offer personalised items according to their chosen wedding style, theme, or personal tastes, so that the items will be unique to every celebration.
Here are a few photos, just to show you what was created this week, and the effects that can be obtained at the wedding reception table. The sunflower theme would be most suited to an early summer wedding here, with its bright colours and rustic chic style. The Italian countryside fills up with giant yellow sunflowers in late June - early July each year, so what better way than to carry on such a local, natural theme right through into the wedding styling.
