The styling and design of this shoot was delicate, simple, elegant and romantic, just like our beautiful bride. The chosen location was Casa Coll i Regás; a Catalan modernist building designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch in 1898 and commissioned by businessman Joaquim Coll i Regás, an important textile manufacturer in Mataró.
Catalan Modernism (part of a wider trend known as Art Nouveau) was a cultural movement that embraced the arts and represented a particular way of life and mode of thinking. It combined the great Catalan construction tradition with sculpture, artistic crafts and applied arts often incorporating iron as a material.
The windows with leaded glass, hydraulic tiles, cotton flowers and cog wheels tells the tale of a house built for a textile entrepreneur. In the shoot we revealed all these corners of the house where we can appreciate the modernist movement, with the delicacy of the powdered fabrics of the dress. Her neutral make up and soft hairstyle is perfectly complimented by a skin tone palette. In addition to the bouquet, we also used some beautiful cotton flowers, a reference to the textile entrepreneur.
Martina Dorta’s headpiece makes a subtle reference to the building’s iron, one of the fundamental elements in this movement. Her stunning designs are handcrafted unique pieces that incorporate plants and asymmetric motifs. Definitely a touch of personalised class for a romantic bride, with character.
