A Vintage Chic Destination Wedding in Sardinia, Italy

Marco and Carla had a beautiful destination wedding in the medieval village of Castelsardo, on the edge of the sea with views near and far. This Sardinia destination I do was one filled with love, laughter, and a gorgeous lace wedding dress. Carla shared with us how they selected their location and all the sweet Italian details.

We chose the resort by my love for the sea and the fact that I find the Castelsardo landscapes highly suggestive and romantic.

For the outfits, I wanted something original but at the same time traditional and recalling the colors of my land. I found Elisabetta Delogu’s unique pieces.

On a single, extraordinary day, it ‘s hard to find a “favourite time” but having to choose I would prefer the evening part when dancing party – a particular intimate moment with the people I love.

Advice for other destination wedding couples from this well-versed bride?

To other couples, I would recommend choosing a destination and decorating themselves without having to be influenced by relatives and friends because the wedding day should reflect the tastes and the peculiarities of the bridal and make happy first the bride and groom and foremost the people concerned and then also all the guests!

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

English Countryside Wedding Inspiration

Today’s photo shoot comes to us from Photography by Rachel who was inspired by the English countryside to create a vintage wedding look fitting of setting as beautiful as this.  The photographer shared with us the ideas behind the shoot with not one, but two couples!

Set in the english countryside at an outdoor wedding venue called Briasty Estate it was the perfect place to compliment the wild english garden look which was the overall theme for this styled wedding shoot along with the idea to have two real loved up couples in one setting.

One couple with an air of modern luxury about them who looked stunning amongst the wild foliage of the venues ‘greenhouse’ and a beautiful brunette couple who completely represent the classic beauty in english literature – think Mr Darcy!

The venue is a blank canvas for your outdoor wedding with the only limit being your imagination with rolling hills as far as the eye can see. I love to photograph outdoor weddings so this venue was perfect and I love the idea of capturing the romance between a couple amongst the beauty of a wild garden overflowing with nature.

A Gorgeous Formal Elopement in Austria

Georgiana and Stefan had an intimate elopement, just for two, three years after their first wedding. She is from Romania he is from Austria. They met in Bucharest and originally wed in Romania before deciding to do it all over again years later, just the way they wanted to. The location they selected may look familiar, Schloss Leopoldskron in Salzburg, a spot used in the film The Sound of Music!

Georgiana shared a little bit of the behind the scenes from their second big day with us:

It was definitely strange after almost 3 years to put my wedding dress back on to see each other like this again but it felt absolutely wonderful – magical really. Since it was just the 2 of us it was more intimate than with an entire wedding party. We had plenty of time just for us and with Claudia our photographer. We were able to do all the things we didn’t have time at our first wedding. It was a real luxury. A full day just for the two of us.

  

I really trusted Stephanie my wedding planner to come up with a perfect colour theme. I love opulent décor mixed with a contemporary feel so the grey was a nice and balancing touch.

      

The Rolls Royce was a real treat. The driver took us around the lake and we really felt like superstars.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Romantic Garden Wedding in Tuscany, Italy

destination wedding dress

Collette and David said I do in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Tuscany, Italy. The couple shared with us their sweet story and how their destination wedding came to be.

Imagine getting married in a beautiful and romantic villa in the heart of Italy. That’s how we shared one of the most important days in our life together.  On September 14, 2016, we said “I do,” at Palazzo Rosadi, a wedding location found by ourselves. We knew it was where we wanted to get married.  So, we spent a week at the location with our friends during the wedding week.

The color scheme for the wedding was light and soft, but still very romantic.  The white, pastel purple, and light pink color added a natural, simple element to the beauty of the entire day.  Additionally, gold elements were scattered throughout the event to add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

The bride wanted the decoration to be minimal so we used babys’ breath and eucalyptus, and for the bride’s bouquet we used White garden roses, hydrangeas and babys breath, while on the guests’ tables we used succulents as table number holders. We had lots of candles on the tables which gave a lovely romantic touch to the look.
