Could this be the longest wedding table we have seen yet?! The beautiful Italian wedding ceremony was followed by an intimate and romantic celebration at a private home. The couple made their entrance in front of their closest friends and family, with the groom looking super smart in a classic black tuxedo and the bride wearing a strapless lace Pronovias dress clutching a delicate pastel bouquet. In fact, pastel flowers were scattered throughout the day including on the long banquet table that just kept going and going!

What Made Our Day Unique

We were surrounded by the most important people of our lives and they were all there to celebrate our love. The result of the event went beyond our expectations, having a private location for the reception made everything more personal, emotional and of course unique! After the ceremony when our driver, Lara's brother, left us in a hidden part of the garden of the Villa was the first moment of the day that we were just the two of us, walking through the garden ready to make our entrance at the party, we saw the imperial table for the first time and we realized that all we had dreamed about for more than a year was real.. That's our favourite moment.

Pastel Bouquet

The pretty pastel bouquet and delicate flower arrangements looked beautiful dotted around the private venue, with hints of pink and pops of blue sitting next to the greenery of the villa gardens! The long imperial table was lit up with festoon lighting with rustic signs a traditional Italian wedding cake sat at the end!

Inspiration & Styling

We were looking for a romantic and intimate wedding, this is why we decided to have all our guests seated at an iperial table framed by trees and lights in an intimate part of the Villa. We also wanted to celebrate the joy of the day with a colourful flower arrangement.
