Today’s shooting is a really special one, tasty like a cup of good coffee and enthralling like a journey in time. If you don’t believe you can actually have both things at the same time, it is because you have never been at Caffè Meletti, in Ascoli Piceno. Located in the central square, Piazza del Popolo, Caffè Meletti has been the city’s landmark and heritage since 1907. It is also one of the main attraction for tourists and coffee enthusiasts. Named after the historic amaro (bitter liquor), Caffé Meletti also owns its charm to the magnificent Art Nouveau building in which it is located. The venue offers a breath-taking view over the square, with which the building is perfectly harmonised.
Our shooting is set here, a location where time seems to stand still. The entire concept, planning, and styling of the event have been organised by Merry Le Marche, which has gathered some of the best wedding industry professionals around its marvellous idea. Among them, a few friends of ours: the photographer Matteo Crescentini, the flower stylist Nina e I Fiori, and the graphic designer Auca Design.
The result is an intimate, refined, and enticing bridal shooting in which the gorgeous Masha Yerokhova (hair styling and makeup, Roxy Rose Wedding) gently twirls across the café dancing to some jazz tunes, wearing Eliza Jane Howell’s dress, Emmy London’s shoes, and The Exquisite Collection’s jewellery. The vintage atmosphere is evocated rather than slavishly chased, thanks to wisely measured details like Tableset Luxury Rentals’ tableware and the swingers Riccardo Foresi & That’s Amore.
“Caffè Meletti – Le son des fleurs” is one of those work reminding us how fascinating our job is: we celebrate beauty while researching, experimenting, and sharing the experience with valuable friends and professionals. Enjoy the video!
