AWESOME SHOOTER SERIES: DREAMS OF VENICE . . . .

Have I got a real treat for you today from Andre and Suzanne of Belle Momenti.  This husband and wife photography team based in the UK specializes in destination weddings. Visiting Venice and shooting weddings there, both were left totally inspired by the storied and antiquated backdrop.  In their own words:  "Having fallen in love completely with this beautiful city, we wanted to recreate a Venetian-themed photo shoot back in the UK but were seeking the right venue. Through research, we concluded that there are not many bridal images along this theme and feel that the opulence and luxurious feel of ‘all-things-Venetian’ would be an interesting concept for potential brides. We have seen Parisian bridal themes used in a number of publications, however, not on Venice (a little surprising given it is one of the most romantic cities in the world)."
The search for their location ended once they visited Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa – a magnificent neo-classical mansion house built in 1767, nestled in 1000 acres parkland (including a beautiful Italianate formal garden). From the exterior and grand entrance of the mansion through to the lavish Belle Epoque style interior, marble-walled dining room and curved, marble staircase surrounded Bergonzoli's statue ‘The Love of Angels’. " We knew instantly this was what we’d been looking for. Unsurprisingly, Luton Hoo has featured in numerous films, including ‘Never Say Never Again’, ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, Eyes Wide Shut’, ‘The Secret Garden’, ‘Enigma’, ‘Bright Young Things’ and more recently ‘War Horse’. Television appearances include the BBC series ‘Little Dorrit’ and ‘Bleak House’. Hence, this was the perfect location for an opulent, Venetian-themed photo shoot."
