Salvatore Ferragamo Interview - Il Borro // Tuscany

We are finally able to publish this safeguarded secret shoot we did back in October, this was such a special shoot for us as we got to meet and film Salvatore Ferragamo the Grandson of the Famous Shoemaker and Couturier to the Hollywood Stars and elite families of America. 

The shoot tool place in Il Borro, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, in the shadow of the cypress trees of the ancient Via dei Sette Ponti, (an area rich in art and culture between the three main cities of Tuscany Florence, Arezzo and Siena), Il Borro is an open window on history, a fresco to a far away world.  Medici dynasty, the Savoia family and now the Ferragamo family have safeguarded and preserved this precious oasis, making this place, suspended between past and present, a sanctuary dedicated to wellbeing and the art of hospitality.  Il Borro is a majestic village frozen in time

 We really enjoyed working on this shoot as we were working alongside the super talented Greek Photographer Nikos Gogas who's images reflect Il Borro's wonderful Tuscan spirit. 

Take a look at the lovely interview with the very charming and engaging Salvatore Ferragamo

Seven Decadent Sins Showcase//Royal Opera House

The Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden has a reputation for the best Opera and Ballet performances in the World, the talent that has graced the Stage at this beautiful Venue is indeed beyond comparison. We had the enormous pleasure and privilege of filming an event hosted and constructed by a talented group of Wedding individuals headed by Jemma-Jade of Jemma-Jade Events and Libbi Pappenheim of Over The Top Rentals.

We love filming Weddings and Wedding Events, some are just that extra bit special, when you see  Floral design that is just breathtaking you understand that Leanne Hewitt the genius behind "Wild About Flowers" knows how to create and craft flowers you couldn't imagine were possible, her artistry is unique! and her team are amazing!

Guests were wowed by the decadence of Cake's and sweet treats made and crafted by the wonderfully talented Elizabeth Solaru of "Elizabeths Cake Emporium"  the ingredients that Elizabeth uses in her cakes set her apart from the rest not only do they look beautiful that taste heavenly.

All of the Vendors at this event truly are remarkable in their field, including Kay and Jit of "Intricate Creations" who must have worked tirelessly for weeks prior to this event to create invitations and Stationery to die for!  Its so good to see so many people in the wedding industry passionate and creative about their art, it can only be a good thing in moving the wedding industry forward and establishing solid standards. So proud to call these people our Peers and our Friends! 

Please enjoy the film we created to showcase the talent! 

Love Jo & Apos xx

Imran & Vasoula // The Langham London

 

During the summer our team had the pleasure of working with a couple who when you meet for the very first time make you feel like you have known them all their life! Vasoula is warm, bubbly exceptionally funny and so so kind. Imran is a true gent, and very down to earth, together as a couple they are just the best combination you can see apart from loving one another they are true best friends. 

Their wedding was at the beautiful Langham Hotel London, it was planned by Perry's Weddings. Photography was captured by the super talented Nek Vardikos Photography, Nek and his team really did an amazing job and were a pleasure to work with, you can see further images on his website.

Vasoula & Imran wanted their guests to have an amazing day, and it truly was spectacular as far as weddings go! The entertainment exceeded any West End production it incorporated a belly dancer, singing waiters and indian bangra dancers the whole evening was a riot of colour and culture, east meets west. Vasoula and Imran come from very different cultural backgrounds which makes their love story even more meaningful and is a true testament to their commitment to each other and their combined families. In the film we produced, we incorporated very traditional elements of both cultures, we hope they love it!

We wish them a lifetime of love & happiness.
