We are absolutely loving this retro birdcage veil from Nicola! Honestly, everything about this wedding just screams vibes, and we’re seriously here for it. Having originally planned to marry in Italy, Nicola & Andrew didn’t let the pandemic stop their Italian dreams. Their wedding included lemon table decorations, Lambretta scooters, and plenty of delicious food and drink! Complete with a relaxed atmosphere, glorious sunny weather, and a stunning outdoor setting, this really is the Italian dream… within the U.K.! Props to Recommended Supplier, Kazooieloki Photography, for the captures!

Birdcage veil for Italian themed wedding 

We had planned to have an outdoor service at the Cloisters in Sorrento Italy, as we fell in love with it on holiday. This was cancelled twice due to Covid. We decided to bring Italy to the U.K. and had an Italian themed wedding.

Nicola & Andrew


Our theme was Italian chic. We love the Mediterranean vibe! Relaxed atmosphere, lots of good food and drink, spending time with your family! And of course music… the outdoor setting was perfect; nature was our decor and it felt like we were in Italy. 


Do what makes you happy. Don’t try and please other people. Take a moment to stop and look around at the people enjoying your wedding - it goes too fast! Most importantly; enjoy it and ensure you have a fantastic photographer so the atmosphere of your special day is captured. 

Is anyone else now dreaming of Lambretta Scooters whilst riding around Italy? No? Just us? Ok…

My two sons walked me down the aisle. It was a very special moment for my husband and I. When we reached the end, they hugged me and shook hands with my husband. At that moment, we became a family.

We are just a little obsessed with Nicola’s birdcage veil. It really does give us that old Hollywood 50s Italian vibe! We understand it can be a little difficult to know what you want.
