Ariadne's Thread | An Italian Editorial

This editorial was inspired by Greek mythology and photographed in Northern Italy, at the picturesque Lake Como. The Italian team of creatives put a modern spin on the ancient myth of Ariadne's Thread and found inspiration in the natural beauty of the region.

"It is said that Ariadne fell in love with Theseus when he arrived in Crete to kill the Minotaur in the labyrinth of Knossos.. Ariadne, betraying her half-brother, gave Theseus a ball of wool so that he could mark the path he had travelled in the labyrinth and then get out easily.

Ariadne then fled with him and the other Athenians to Athens, but Theseus once landed on the island of Naxos departed while Ariadne rested, abandoning her.

Various versions underline the petty behavior of Theseus that seems

inexplicable and this suggests that a part of the original myth has been lost.

In our story we want to imagine a happy ending for the two young lovers - a

gathering meant to last forever."

Photographer Nicoletta Subitoni captured this editorial which was dreamt up by Wedding Planners and Stylists Confetti at Colazione. The scenery of Lake Como against Villa Grumello made the perfect backdrop to this stunning shoot and had us dreaming of an Italian Summer.

Keeping with a natural palette, Il Profumo dei Fiori styled the tables and created bouquet with textural and soft roses. Gold cutlery by Tableset Luxury Rentals gave a luxurious accent and the macrame by Nodo Su Nodo, which was used in the table styling nods to the Greek Myth of Ariadne. The woven details in the Letterink stationery is another considered detail that ties in harmoniously with the inspiration behind the editorial.

The ethereal tulle gown by Silvia Moretta adds a soft textural layer to this stunning Italian editorial and is a beautiful contrast to the perfectly tailored, dark suit by Sanvenero. With rings by Linea Laboratorio Rafo, earrings by Taala and Enzo Miccio Bridal shoes, the modern day Ariadne looks every part contemporary bride.
