St. Valentine’s is almost upon us, so gentlemen you have limited time to organize a surprise dinner for your loved one! Whether you are fans of the most romantic day of the year or not, this chic styled shoot from Studio Phosart Photography & Cinematography will get you in a loved up mood for sure. We decided to go for a different setting that won't include cliché hearts and balloons. We kept the color red which is characteristic of the day but also added burgundy and purple to the color palette. For the dinner invitation we chose Beethoven's love letter to his loved one in a deep red envelope and handwritten calligraphy. We couldn't think of a more idyllic place than the garden of Pyrgos Petreza, an amazing stone winery. The fine table for the couple was filled with beautiful seasonal flowers such as roses, anemone, buttercups, astilbe and ivy. Apart from the color of the flowers, we chose burgundy for the linen towels as well, and all other details were neutral in tones to achieve balance. The red velvet cake, complete with a white chocolate dripping, had a very interesting twist as it was decorated with fresh flowers, raspberries and strawberries. Nikos chose an elegant blue suit with a red bow tie while Evita a magnificent burgundy creation by Katia Delatola. And last but not least, your loved ones gift! What better than jewellery? Delicate earrings, bracelets and a ring with rubies and diamonds.
Good morning, on July 7
Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
