Wabi Sabi – Broken Is Beautiful

A styled shoot inspired by a desire to embrace the imperfect and the unfinished; finding beauty in what is broken.

Photography by Elisabetta Marzetti

Wabi Sabi represents an aesthetic that is both shamelessly beautiful yet authentically humble. An ideal fit for the couple who are hopelessly sentimental. Drawn to those who not only hold, but cherish their family heirlooms and hand-me-downs.

Visually, the Wabi Sabi appeal comes from its intriguingly unassuming romance, beautifully represented inside this styled shoot shot by wedding photographer Elisabetta Marzetti.

A collaboration of cultures and historical elegance layer together seamlessly. A fusion of a traditional Japanese aesthetics displayed inside ancient Italian architecture epitomizes the authentic beauty of the modern world.

Antique remnants, lovingly used objects and stationery keepsakes sit beside draped linens that mimic the unexpected yet breathtaking silhouettes of the natural world.

Wabi Sabi alludes to the idea of a new aesthetic paradigm, emulating a conscious beauty that our minds unknowingly desire

A room layered with imperfect artisan items in the way of organic table linens, hand shaped ceramic crockery, antique cutlery and glassware.
