An Urban Wedding Hangar Shoot Inspired by Jackson Pollock
Wedding Hangar Shoot Inspired by Jackson Pollock
Travelling is one of the best and most interesting experiences in our life. There are journeys that change our lives, and many of us spend our free time flying towards new destinations. This combined with an admiration for Jackson Pollock inspired this travel themed wedding shoot.

It’s never too late to get on board and start over. Someone wrote:
”I learned to toast the doors closed, the roads stopped, the stories ended because it is at the end of things that new beginnings start all over again”
The aim of this project was for me to elevate the theme of travel in weddings, towards a more modern, symbolic and cultured dimension.
The stationery, designed by Enza Valente, emphasized this concept of dynamism.
The Symbolic Concept
Getting married to someone is so much like a journey. So travel and love have many things in common.
As in our love life, some travels have long waiting times but also meetings that can change our life; travelling is to see the world with different eyes. Exactly like when you are in love with someone; for every end, there is always a new beginning. A journey is made of connections and culture but a journey, like love, is also in the eye of the beholder.
The Stylistic Project
In order to emphasize the modernity of the project, I focused on the colours yellow, grey and teal. The red and orange colours warmed and matched the whole scenography.
Since I’m very passionate about art, I decided to make a tribute to Jackson Pollock: florist Elisa Vanin hand-painted the paint-stained table with the main colours of this project.
These paint stains have a symbolic value because stains are dynamic like travel and like a love story. Each paint-stain is totally unique, just as every human has their own personality and their own way to approach life and love.
Moreover, we change during our life so we don’t remain the same person.
The photographer, Matteo Michelino ( Street Wedding Photography ) excelled himself with the modern and urban strength of the shoot, whilst maintaining the romanticism that a wedding deserves. A touch of fashion in many of the portraits was also essential for this modern wedding shoot.
“The modern artist is working with space and time and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating“ – Jackson Pollock
