With a passion for the classics, Voila Event Studio and Currie FitzHugh Photography set upon creating a Shakespeare inspired wedding theme centered around the famous ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ – a tale of love with a comedy twist, set within an idyllic Italian village.

 

Held in the fields of vineyards surrounding a Tuscan style villa estate, this styled shoot recreates the romanticism of Italy. Rustic details were paired with vintage touches and laid back lace, whilst local flavours gave an organic feel to the theme, with a gorgeous grape adorned wedding cake and rich olive oil favours.

Currie FitzHugh Photography:

“As lovers of all things classic and timeless, my wedding planner sister and I wanted to put our heads together for a fabulous and romantic styled shoot.”

 

“There is not much out there that’s more romantic than Shakespeare, and Much Ado About Nothing (1993) has always been one of my favorite movies. The witty banter between Beatrice and Benedick, and the love that develops between the duo has always captivated me as classic tale of fiery and passionate hearts.”

“It was a joy for us to bring these characters to life, and although the models we had were mere acquaintances, we swear we saw some sparks of Beatrice and Benedick as the sinking sun drifted to sleep.”

 

“We came together with truly amazing vendors to make it happen we can’t thank them enough for all they did! We also did a few things ourselves, (like making a dress for Sammy the model out of a nightgown and bathing suit cover!) and we are so proud of the results!”
