Lenie & Francesco: A fairytale wedding in South Tyrol

Posted on December 14th, 2015 by Silvia

Happy Monday sweeties!
We are almost at the end of a fantastic year of weddings, inspirations and beautiful Italian venues! Did you enjoy our selection so far? It’s not finish yet! Today we will share with you the last real wedding of the year….and I’m warning you  it is a super romantic one! A big thank you to Sandra Åberg who kindly shared with us these beautiful pictures.

Lenie and Francesco got married in a hot day of June at an amazing castle in the South Tyrol, an Italian region in the north of Italy, surrounded by the Dolomite mountains.

Wedding in Südtirol
After an outside ceremony Bride and Groom with their guests moved to a panoramic terrace on the top of the Prosels Castle and enjoyed a spectacular view of the countryside nibbling on freshly cut speck, chunks of Parmigiano Reggiano, and sipping champagne, before moving inside to a ballroom in the castle for the formal dinner. The event was simple and elegant, the venue was spectacular – a majestic castle preserved in in its original format and dates back to 1279 –  and based on the pictures I guess the food was really tasty…The right combination for a perfect wedding!
Find out all you need to plan a stunning wedding in the mountains on our inspirational mood board of the month!

Into the wild wedding inspiration

Posted on December 7th, 2015 by Silvia

Hi ladies!
Looking outside the window this morning I could see our stunning mountains all covered in snow and they got me thinking for a great idea for the last mood board of the year! A wedding characterized by wood, trees and a magical atmosphere of a mountain forest. I really like the idea of a wedding set in the woods near the mountains surrounded only by nature with a rustic and charming style. Check out all the pictures we selected to create an unique style for your Italian wedding into the wild!

Let’s start with some views of Italian Mountains….First a beautiful landscape in Friuli Venezia Giulia with the mountains on the back and an amazing fields of wild flowers. It would be amazing to take some wedding pictures here! And what about the Cime di Lavaredo and the lake Sorapis?!

For the wedding dress, a loose-long gown with lace or nature inspired inserts is a perfect choice. The accessorizes are always an important part of the outfit. A floral or green crown is an expected but proper element for a wedding into the wild!

What about these amazing shoes? Just perfect…

A vintage and decadent bridal shoot in Macerata

Posted on November 23rd, 2015 by Silvia

Hi ladies!
Today I feel nostalgic, so I decided to share with you a beautiful wedding shoot which took place in the beautiful Macerata in the Marche region.
The stunning location Società Filarmonico Drammatica is an old palace of the late 19th Century, once a cultural society for aristocracy and bourgeoisie. These magical pictures of Vanessa Illi make you go back in time as you were invited to a ballet prima in the 30s!
Federica of Honey and Cinnamon Italian Wedding Planner did a great job, all the details are very thoughtful and a perfect match to a vintage-decadent style embellish with a elegant touch of a retro shade of gold.
I absolutely love the look of the model Isabella… from the vintage hairstyle to the simple but powerful makeup. For the jewellery the choice of pearls is perfect. I adore the ring and the pearls in the table centrepieces.
What about the bouquet? Simply beautiful… The shape and the selection of flowers and colours represent perfectly the vintage-decadent style of this shooting.

Greta and Fabio: A country Wedding in Verona

Posted on November 9th, 2015 by Silvia

Happy Monday everyone!

The sun is shining again here in Italy and it makes me so happy I will share with you an amazing wedding captured by Valerio Di Domenica! When I first saw these pictures I was overwhelmed with emotions and I think you will too.
Greta and Fabio got married on a sunny day in the romantic city of Romeo and Juliet, Verona. An intimate and simple event with the closest family and friends in the Venetian countryside but with a lot of surprises and laughs! I love the bride Greta’s style.. a simple flawy dress adorn with a pair of beautiful coral sandals. What about the bouquet? Simply stunning, with some shades of blue and pink…
Nuff said, here’s the twist of the plot… Bride and Groom, together with the photographer Valerio decided to have some pictures in a suggestive yet dreaming birch forest. Suddenly, in the middle of the shooting, some unexpected “guests” arrived…. A bunch of cows grazing interrupted a lovely session and became the part of an amazing wedding shoot!! I love it! A big thank you to Valerio, Greta and Fabio for sharing with us these stunning pictures.

Mood board: Striped Wedding Inspiration

Posted on November 2nd, 2015 by Silvia

Hello ladies!
Outside is raining today, that means I’m near the fireplace with a cup of tea looking for some ideas for you! Thinking back of the amazing summer we had this year I chose a super fun and happy theme for the mood board of this month…. When I was working on the Polka dot wedding inspiration a few months ago I had so much fun so for the today post I set aside colours and focused again on a pattern: stripes!
Here’s some beautiful pictures to plan an amazing striped wedding here in Italy.

To begin some inspiration from our beloved country…. Italy is full of stripes! I found this lovely church in Sardinia, and what to say about Venice’s gondolier…so stylish!

From the past to the present stripes patterns are a really unique detail, perfect for personalized the wedding outfit, both for him and for her.
I really like the skin-peeking sheer dress, an alternative way to incorporate stripes to your style!

It’s all about the decoration! Tapes, ribbons etc….You just have to choose the type of stripes, the colours and the fabric.

For the cake I chose two different but both original options. The naked cake creates a natural stripe pattern which I personally love and the watercolour layered cake is simply stunning.

Our selection of industrial wedding venue in Italy

Posted on October 26th, 2015 by Silvia

Hello sweeties!
We noticed you really liked the industrial wedding shoot we shared last week! We want always continue to inspire you and find the unusual, the original touch that could give a certain je ne sais quoi to your wedding!
So for the today’s post we talk again about the industrial theme, focusing on the location… We have searched all around Italy and found some amazing industrial venues, here’s our selection!

Filanda Motta – Veneto

Once a spinning mill, Filanda Motta is a perfect example of industrial architecture. Due to the crisis of the 1930s and the world wars the mill stopped working around 1960 and was then abandoned. Nowadays thanks to the restoration of a cultural club Filanda Motta hosts several events, from exhibitions, fashion shows to weddings. The main characteristic, which I really like, are the big windows and the beautiful cotto tile floor. You can see also some pictures of the spinning mill before it was closed, really suggestive…
Filanda Motta is perfect for those who are looking for an industrial venue but don’t want to renounce to the countryside element.

Stazione Leopolda – Tuscany

The stazione leopolda was a real railroad station built in 1848 in Firenze named in honour of the reigning Grand Duke. It is a really unique venue with a huge and impressive structure and a capturing industrial style. It is the ideal venue for a big wedding. Like most of every industrial venue, Stazione Leopolda gives you the possibility to create freely lots of different styles and setting for your wedding, that is a really great opportunity!

Fabbrica Borroni

Born in the end of 1800 as a toy factory, Fabbrica Borroni is a original location in Bollate, a few minutes from Milan. An artistic venue defined by an industrial past but in a modern contest. In Fabbrica Borroni you can find also some unique and marvelous wall paintings as you can see from the pictures. An ideal venue for a metropolitan and cultural wedding focused on contemporary art and design.

Fabbrica Saccardo

Fabbrica Saccardo is an industrial complex built at the end of 1800. It was renewed accurately maintaining the original architecture but giving a modern touch. Its interior is stunning with beautiful iron columns. On the outside you might have many opportunity to take some amazing pictures thanks also to the green surroundings. I would love to see a minimal chic wedding set in this outstanding venue…would you?
