Sylvie and Gianluca: A romantic session in Apulia

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Hi sweeties!
It’s been a long long time but I finally had some time to write on the blog!
The wedding season is been for me and Stefania really intense this year, but we manage sometime between 2 weddings, to have a break for a weekend! And this is what I and Gianluca, my husband, did a few weeks ago for my birthday!

Engagement in Apulia - Trullo

A long week-end in Apulia for my birthday, only he and I with no kids around! A real special week-end for us, full of emotions, as I spent one year of my life in Apulia 15 years ago, a hard year from a feelings perspective, during which I and my now-husband, reinforced strongly our relationship, as Apulia was at that time so so so far away from Venice where we are now…
A special gift was for the occasion a shooting session with a super fantastic photographer from the area, Andrea Antohi who we introduced to you a couple of months ago for the dreaming wedding of Roger and Remko.
We told him we wanted some pics of us in a really Apulian context, trulli, an old masseria ( that is an ancient farm), olive trees surrounded by a wild nature, the blue sea in the background…
We finally end up in the stunning Masseria Mozzone in Montalbano di Fasano. We were surrounded by an ancient olive grove, wheat fields, wild flowers and we were completely absorbed by the sounds and colors of the true Apulian countryside.
It was magical, me and Gianluca will never forget it, thanks also to the amazing work of Andrea…we are so in love with his pics!

Cecilia and Alessio: A charming Italian wedding in Umbria

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Hi ladies!
Hello wormy September! What a nice month for an Italian wedding…
Today I will share with you a super romantic one…I send a big thank you to Elisa and Marco of Studio26 who send us these beautiful pictures.

Wedding in Umbria

Cecilia and Alessio are a really sweet Italian couple who got married in Umbria, a beautiful region in the centre of Italy. Their wedding was a warm and cozy event between laughs, jokes and emotions…
The love between the two was palpable as you can see from how they look so romantically to each other.
They changed their vows in a stunning little church with suggestive frescos on the walls and an antique wooden sealing. The party continued in the Fattoria Caldese where all the guests, as part of a one big family, had lots of excitement dancing and laughing with the happy couple!
I love the bride Cecilia’s strapless, simple and elegant dress. The floral crown, which was made by the bridesmaids, is a really beautiful detail that complete a really chic and delicate style. Enjoy their story…

Borgo San Marco: A rustic venue in Apulia

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Hi ladies!
Summer is on its final days but we feel like we are still in the middle of it! Today we will introducing you a beautiful rustic venue in an amazing region of Italy, Apulia. We are between Fasano and Ostuni in the middle of Salento, surrounded by secular olive tree groves and the Adriatic Sea …
Borgo San Marco is a dreaming and relaxing place, set in a suggestive scenery where you can unbend yourself in the Mediterranean sounds. When I first saw this magical place I remember all the characteristic colours of the Apulia region which I was inspired by for the last mood board: olive green and peach and I felt immediately in love!

Once an ancient fortalice and garrison of the Knights of Malta, Borgo San Marco used to be also a monastic settlement in the twelfth century. Its little church it’s just amazing with beautiful recently restored frescos in the inside.
Imagine yourself walking at the very birth of twilight in this beautiful Masseria, surrounded by the silent of the natural sculptures that are the century old olive and carobs trees… What else? A beautiful swimming pool and a wellness centre… A perfect location, if you are planning a rustic wedding in Apulia!

Mood Board: Olive green and Peach wedding inspiration

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Hello ladies!
It’s time for our monthly appointment with the moodboard wedding inspiration!
A few days ago I was looking back for the million time (I never get tired) to the beautiful pictures of Roger and Remko wedding in Apulia we featured last month. I completely fell in love with the beautiful apulian landscapes, the trulli, the secular olive trees, the colour of the ground.
What’s more rustic and vintage than a olive green and peach, almost terracotta colour palette?
Look at this stunning views of the magnificent Apulia region… A perfect location for a Italian countryside wedding cerimony and full of beautiful spots to take some amazing wedding pictures…

To complete the look here some options of jewerly. I love the green and peach earrings, a perfect choice for a sofisticated look. What about the cameo ring? Simply dreaming…

flowers
For the flowers the olive branches are so perfect and eye-catching. I really love the bouquet in the center, so rustic and elegant with different kinds of flowers and leaves. For the centerpieces and floral decoration  the use of vintage items like the antique scale on the left is a different and original way to create a beautifully personalized style for the reception.

table

Getting married in Apulia will give you a lot of choices for decoration items. The Apulia region has a lot of different handmade typical manifactures as those stunning ceramic plates handmade painted and terracotta vases. Another original apulian item is the Pumo, you can see through the plates, rapresents a flower bud blossoming and simbolize luck and fertility in the Apulian tradition. It come in different sizes and can be use for decoration or as a wedding favour for your guests.

Serena and Pierre-Oliver: a rustic wedding in Torcello

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Hi ladies!
Let’s start the week with an amazingly romantic wedding in our beloved Venice!
Serena and Pierre-Oliver got married in a sunny September in the intimate island of Torcello.
Their story starts one year earlier when at midnight of Christmas Eve Pierre-Oliver proposed to Serena in the magical Piazza San Marco. No wonder that they were absolutely sure about the location for their wedding: Venice <3
I love the style of the event, rustic but elegant with a perfect match of the colours white, salvia green with a touch of Bordeaux. Serena and Pierre-Oliver thought of every single detail from the favors – little soaps wrapped in a vintage packaging – to the names of the tables – inspired by celebrities the visited the Island of Torcello.

Remko & Roger: a Dutch wedding in Puglia

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Hi everyone!
Today I feel particularly romantic so I will share with you a beautiful love story.
Remko and Roger are Dutch and this is their wedding…
They got married in Puglia last July after a long and accurate planning. Surrounded by the nature they promised their eternal love in front of friends and family.
What’s more romantic than having your wedding surrounded by secular olive trees?
It feels like being in a dream…
They started the day in a Palazzo de Mori in Otranto accompanied by their sweet three nieces and their trusted Labrador! With a vintage spider car, all five arrived at the wedding ceremony location, a stunning olive tree grove.
The celebration continued in a stunning venue in the beautiful countryside of Salento, the Tenuta Centoporte.
I really love the long table, its setting and all the decoration in the garden…
Remko and Roger are a beautiful couple and their love transpire from these amazing pictures taken by Andrea Antohi and Francesco Gravina!

Get ready to be amaze by the most romantic, dreaming and strange venues we found all around Italy…

A magic atmosphere…

Today this path is named the Lover’s Walk in honoured of them and is situated between the same two towns of Sapri and Maratea, in Calabria region.
Since the beginning of the 2015 the Mayor of Sapri agreed to perform the civil wedding ceremony by this beautiful venue during the week days.

Julie and Jeremy: a dreaming Wedding in Rome

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Hi lovely people!!

Today I will share with you a beautiful wedding which took place in a Villa in Lazio, near the eternal city Rome.
When I saw these pictures, I immediately fell in love with this couple!

Julie is an art director and Jeremy is a designer: they both live in Canada and got engaged last year in Rome, during their trip to Italy. For their wedding they decided to come back in Italy where it all began.
The wedding venue is Villa Trinità, a stunning late 19th century historical manor house in Capranica, near Rome.
They share their day with their closest parents and friends who helped organizing the event… Julie and Jeremy did a great job and had a great care for every single detail.
What about the three dresses? I particularly love the second one with a low back and lace inserts.
I really like Julie and Jeremy’s wedding….It was so dreaming…
A really special thank you to Monica Leggio for sending us these beautiful pictures!
