Inspiration

The vibes at this Italian castle wedding are incredibly sophisticated and romantic with a black-tie dress code, all white flowers and fairytale setting. Real bride Hanna looks heavenly in a bespoke gown made from two dresses, and the sunset portraits make you feel like you are right there basking in the sun with our gorgeous couple. Shall we take a look?

What Made Our Day Unique

What made our day unique was the destination, weather, being able to gather our friends and family. Katia, our wedding planner. made our wedding planning so much easier and helped us the whole way. She helped us on the wedding day and made us relax and enjoy the day even more. We didn't need to think about all the details, planning, or the time. She made it perfect! We also loved that so many of our friends were able to come down to Italy to share this special moment with us. The second night before the wedding day was a perfect way to get everyone in an amazing mood for the wedding day.

Italian Castle Wedding

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale" is one of my absolute favourite quotes and immediately sprung to mind whilst putting together this incredibly dreamy Italian castle wedding. For one, real bride Hanna looks like a princess, and two, I feel like this incredible day couldn't be more perfect. From the golden hour light to the floral arrangements and everything in between, it screams wedding goals.

Favourite Moment Of The Day

The ceremony at the hilltop, saying yes to each other, the speeches at dinner, the time we got with each other while taking wedding photos and the party after the dinner. When all the details and plans had gone by perfectly and we could relax and just have fun.

Hanna & Bendik
Hanna and Bendik used 100-year-old name tags that were previously used in Hanna's great grandfather's bakery, which was a lovely way to incorporate their passion for cakes and the family business. Adding personal touches like this is what makes each wedding special and unique to each couple. We want to inspire our readers to have 'your day your way' and have a whole Podcast dedicated to doing just that.
