Well hello Friday, bring on the weekend!! I hope you have all had a fantastic week. It’s bene a busy one here at Boho HQ, I’ve had some gorgeous wedding to share with you this week from all around the world, as well as some super stylish styled shoots and wonderful new suppliers to share with you. Next week is shaping up to be anther busy one, the weddings are coming through thick and fast now, it’s so good to have fresh content to share with you again! Today’s rather gorgeous shoot took place on 2nd September 2020 in Croatia and it really is a beauty! The theme of the shoot is ‘Luxury Backyard Wedding’ and Luxury is what we get in abundance! The long table set up is breath taking, the deep blues against the wooden table, the light sand colours of the dried flowers, the detailing of the table scape, it is all just a dream of a wedding set up. Weddings in Croatia did a superb job of putting the whole thing together with this talented bunch of suppliers, while Flick Factory did a wonderful job of capturing is so beautifully.
The object of the project Weddings in Istria and this styled shoot was to tell the story through photography and showcase the skills and services of wedding business owners around Istria. When we first set foot on the location chosen for the styled photo shooting, we had THE moment. We stopped and a clear vision of a wedding dinner scene appeared in our minds. A luxury backyard wedding scene.
The idea for the style shoot was to represent Istria as a wedding destination through all the scenes. As Istria has 4 types of soil (white, grey, black and red), an earthy colour palette was a logical choice for the elements used in the concept and the design of the location decoration. All the segments were carefully selected in order to follow and merge with the Istrian architecture used on the location. With a touch of string lights, magic was made – an ambience which is warm yet simple.
Throughout the whole design and photo shoot concept we took care of authentic elements to represent the region. From the welcome sign made of the wooden board Istrian women used for centuries till nowdays to make traditional Istrian pasta (njoki, pljukanci and fuži) in order to feed their families to the seating plan made with wooden boards for prosciutto and cheese.
Wooden table represents the tradition, the tradition of family gatherings as Istrian families were accustomed to spending their time together, accompanied by good food and wine. Dried flowers from local woods situated in terracotta vases were a perfect choice to make a warm and natural decoration, creating a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
Istria is well-known as a region of hospitable people, people who will always invigorate you with good wine and homemade pastries. That is where the idea of two different scenes, the sweet and wine corner, comes from. The sweet corner was refined with traditional Istrian pastries (kroštule, cukerančići and breskvice) while the wine corner was filled with the inevitable prosciutto, cheese, grapes, olive oil and wine for which the whole region is widely known.
