Wedding in Tuscany: Feathers and Gold for a Dazzling Celebration
It is of course our job but needless to say we do love a great wedding, especially when we organize it 😉 Well the Wedding in Tuscany of Natascia and Ifti, a lovely couple from London, was truly dazzling.
They got in touch with us around Christmas looking for a spectacular venue in Tuscany to celebrate their wedding and we had just the perfect suggestion: a magnificent Period Villa just outside Florence with stunning gardens and a gorgeous view of the city and the surrounding hills. Natascia and Ifti came to Italy and we took them to visit the villa together: they immediately fell in love with the venue and the area and we didn’t need to add much, the Villa does speak for itself!
Natascia told us from the very beginning of the planning that she was very particular about the style of her wedding and that it had to include two details: feathers and gold. We jumped at the chance to move away occasionally from the traditional style of a white wedding (which is always beautiful of course!) and design a wedding with such original and beautiful elements. Together with our florist designer we came up with the idea of incorporating peacock feathers in the table centerpiece which, with their stunning green and blue nuances and combined with the crystal candelabra, gave a very special touch to the tables set up. This was particularly enhanced by the gold table settings: gold presentation plates, gold cutlery and beautifully gold rimmed glasses made the whole look very unique, elegant and absolutely stunning!
For their Tuscan wedding Natascia and Ifti picked a day towards the end of August. On the actual wedding day the sun was shining, the sky was clear blue and the beautiful city of Florence was right there in all its beauty, what more can you ask for? The temperature was hot but that was not a problem because the Villa offers all the right spaces to fully enjoy the beautiful weather and at the same time be away from the heat:
the ceremony took place under the shade of the romantic oaks tree garden, with a gentle breeze coming from the sweet Tuscan hills. After the ceremony it was time for the cocktail reception, full of delicious culinary delights in true Tuscan style and with chilled white wine, which was arranged indoors in one of the gorgeous halls of the Villa. Then just at sunset the guests moved to the dinner area which was set up outside in the garden in front of the villa building: by then the temperature was really pleasant and all guests enjoyed a mouth-watering menu under the Tuscan stars, it was truly magical!
Finally the cutting of the cake took place on top of an ancient well in the villa gardens which was the perfect spot to complete an unforgettable day. Then it was just partying and wild dancing!
It was a amazing day, the Bride and Groom were super happy as they celebrated their dream wedding just the way they had envisioned it: a beautiful day surrounded by their friends and family celebrating their wedding in the gorgeous Tuscan setting, overlooking one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
