For weddings with under 100 guests, we have often seen couples opt for an intimate wedding dinner party feel. This involves inviting your nearest and dearest abroad for a once-in-a-lifetime dinner party that showcases local cuisine and culture whilst also celebrating L-O-V-E! This is exactly what Natalie & Marco did at the stunning Badia di San Vittore in Italy. With 84 guests, the couple invited their friends and family for an unforgettable wedding and dining experience under the Italian sun. With an all-white theme that complements the minimal and rustic vibe of their venue, this wedding is timeless and elegant.

Dinner Party Wedding At Italian Villa

Natalie & Marco’s wedding ceremony and reception were decorated with white roses, gypsophila and white signage for that timeless feel. The couple had guests coming from different parts of the world including Australia, so it was important to Natalie & Marco that their guests felt at home and relaxed. They opted for an intimate wedding dinner party where they could enjoy the food, weather, music and their loved ones all at once. Natalie & Marco’s wedding was a multi-lingual event. The bride’s brother and groom’s sister acted as the celebrants. The groom’s sister led the ceremony in Italian, followed by the bride’s brother in English. We’re just in love with the welcoming, homely vibe that this couple created for their day.
