Worried about rain on your wedding day? Step on over this way, stat.

Set against a backdrop of stormy skies and rolling Tuscan hills, the bride and groom look like movie stars, and their wedding album could truly be an editorial photoshoot, given what turns out to be amazing light for this spectacular setting. A Rue de Seine wedding dress, sweetheart table and fabulous florals simply serve to ramp up the A-list aesthetic of this intimate wedding. We have a feeling you're going to want your pinning fingers ready for this one...
The Vibe Of Our Day
Il Rigo Agriturismo is a beautiful, family-run venue in the middle of Tuscany that only holds a handful of weddings a year. They grow their own flowers, make a lot of their own food or source it locally, and everything about it was homegrown and laid back. We had the entire wedding party stay over for a long weekend, which was amazing. We all hiked to Pienza the day before the wedding, went for a beautiful meal at La Porta in Monticchiello on Friday night, and enjoyed a BBQ the day after the wedding. To be able to do so much and spend such quality time with every single one of our guests is something that meant a lot to us and we'll treasure it forever.
Rue de Seine Wedding Dress
Rue de Seine is the name on the lips of all bohemian brides who want to make a serious style statement; a goddess who glides down the aisle cutting a dramatic and striking aesthetic whilst channelling a free-spirited vibe. Little wonder, then, that Paige looks so sensational in her Rue de Seine Fox dress - very much one of the 'it' gowns of the moment. We love how she customised her look with a Pronovias overskirt, too, making it completely unique to her. This is definitely one of those ensembles that, once on, you never want to take off.
Advice For Brides-to-be
Don’t be afraid to do things that may be ‘untraditional’. Listen to what others have to say, but take the parts you like and discard the bits you don’t. If you feel like things are getting out of hand, sit down with your fiancé and remind yourselves what you want your day to be. Don’t be afraid to change things, cancel things and do things your way. Also, enjoy every minute: the planning, the day itself, even the bits that don’t go as expected. Take positives from everything. We ended up in A&E with Ryan hooked up to four drips on our first day as a married couple but, still, we wouldn’t change a thing. The memories from every part of our wedding are what made it what it was – which was perfect to us!
