Promessi Weddings & Events have put together a styled shoot at one of the most secret and unknown sites in Croatia. I was honored and really excited to be a part of it.
Here’s what Ivana from Promessi says about their whole idea:
“The idea of having a styled shoot at ancient Salona was a dream come true, both professionally and personally. As locals, this childhood wonderland of ours but also a heritage treasure dating back to 9CE, this sleepy town, once Roman capital of Dalmatia, was a perfect scenery for our story.
Recreating a vision of a summer goddess lost in this spiritual ambience of roman shrines, ancient forums and courtyard we tried to give homage to this sacred place. Not hidden anymore, today this place welcomes everybody in search of a magical outdoor ceremony and reception venue, just minutes away from Split.
Delicate emotions of our ethereal, melancholic bride were reflected meticulously by wearing a gentle lace bridal gown by Envy Room. Her inner struggle reminiscing the past times and longing for her love, was presented in vibrant flower arrangements and styling by Cvjetni studio Mirella complimenting the bride’s gentle exposure. More than 200 years old pine trees and heritage stone walls as a contrast to the black and lace linens of a vintage table, decorated with antique golden pieces and china, evoke lavish roman parties from ancient times. Stationery inspired by this story were designed especially for this shoot by Natalie. Beautiful loose hair and makeup styling thanks to Frizerski salon Darjana and Ana Šantić.”
