Dolce Vita in Monaco (and 1 Year of MWLBN)

A year on from the beginning of my Made With Love by Natalia adventure, I would never have thought that my path would have been lined with such blessings and fortunes to include an opportunity to partake in a photo shoot in Monaco with amazing partners and friends.

Six months we have waited for this day to come to be able to publish the photos. On the day that I raise a glass to one year of Made With Love by Natalia as it happens!

The best anniversary gift considering the pandemic circumstances I would say and to celebrate I am having a picnic with fellow crafters Claire @unpapillonsenvole and Carmen @bonito.carmen here in Vendée.

Cheers to ONE year of crafting, inspiration and feeling your love to make beauty for the home and soul. Here's a peek at the amazing photography by Sarah Stefani from the shoot back in September featuring today on Wedding Sparrow blog and across the SBM Monte-Carlo marketing collateral.

Enjoy the teaser video by Jino Agnelli...

And now ladies and gentlemen for the photos after a few words from the amazing photographer who took them, Sarah Stefani.

This was the first time I have worked on a project with so many partners aligned with my values ​​while remaining in the field of marriage and luxury. The Société Bains de Mer de Monte-Carlo, Made with Love by Natalia, My Riviera Weddings, Geraldine Daulon, Jino Agnelli and I are very sensitive to ecological and social issues and each of us work at our level for a better world. I am convinced that it is not by making individuals feel guilty that we convince them but rather by showing them a different path and by making them want to take it. And I hope that's what we managed to do with this project ☺

Cheers to celebrations in life and extraordinary opportunities!

The inspiration behind my choice of earrings for the shoot was simple, for the pool I wanted to empower Gabriele with my large hoop earrings as all else was a contrast of amazing hues of turquoise and flash white.

Gabriele's wonderful skin enhanced by make up artist Irina Awad brought out an electric energy that oozes summer vibrations.

I wanted to bring a touch of exotic to the overall styling and matched with Birsenaite's pearls in the necklace, we found a natural, sustainable look to match the wonderful setting at Monte-Carlo Beach.

What you may not know is that I am also the one behind My Riviera Weddings and this photo shoot was part of a there day production I put together for that. Have a peek at the outcome here.

For the wander in Villefranche sur Mer and sunset champagne session overlooking Monaco on the one side and Saint Jean Cap Ferrat and beyond on the other from Tête des Chiens, I opted for a pair of chic Pipa Earrings.

I invite you to indulge in the scenery as this is were Made With Love by Natalia came to be amidst the first lockdown in France in 2020 on the Côte d'Azur.

It's a wrap!
