Neoclassical Bridal Styled Shoot
Even though the rustic style weddings close to nature completely won our hearts and became a real trend, the neoclassical style remains what it really is – a classic that will never go out of fashion. What is a neoclassical-styled wedding, how is it different from nowadays rustic style weddings and why soon we might experience its revival?
Don’t get me wrong – I, myself, absolutely love the latest rustic trend. Barns, lace dresses and the stiffness-free vibe makes a perfect alternative for those who crave more laid-back atmosphere on their wedding.
However, rustic weddings tend to lack one thing that can make you throw away your all-country style wedding dress. That thing is unquestionable elegance.
Neoclassical style goes back to tradition of elegant attire, tasteful decor and chic details. The best surrounding for a neoclassical photoshoot would be a small villa, based close to picturesque fields and charming gardens, just like Villa la Pieve in the Marche region of Italy. It needs little decor to be magnificent in the wedding pictures – the settings speak for themselves.
Instead of a countryside venue, pick an elegant villa, instead of all-lace, loose dress, an elegant, timeless classic. The decor should be minimalistic, yet luxurious. Little details – a vintage clock on the wall and golden candle holders will be enough to create an atmosphere of sublime. Picking the neoclassical style, you can be sure that your wedding pictures will be timelessly elegant.
From a perspective of a photographer, neoclassical style is the best to shoot when you want to capture the feelings of transformative love, the uplifting and moving feeling of change, bringing a little bit of melancholy – irreplaceable in bridal photoshoots. In a neoclassical style every detail has a meaning – just look at the pictures and see it for yourself.
And you, which style do you prefer?
