There is something I like more about dark red flowers than I do about other shades. I mean, all flowers are beautiful and different surroundings go with different hues. But when a bride asks me for dark, chocolate, wine-red, velvety florals, my heart just starts to sing. I get instantly exited about the daring challenge, the luscious and sexy opulence I have been given to create. Nerina and Matteo decided to put their trust in me with these parameters and the results are visible here below. All beautifully captured by Milos from FunkyBird Photography
After a lifetime of friendship this beautiful couple decided to tie the knot in Maremma Tuscany on the beautiful wine estate of Conti di San Bonifacio. Maddy and Sam had been friends sinds middle school and their love is as beautiful as they are. There was such warmth and heartfelt kindness between both families and it was absolutely wonderful to see them come together.
Weather wise it must have been one of the oddest days of the year. All day long it was incredibly hot and I was amazed to see that the flowers didn't entirely bailed on me :) The usually delicate and fragile peonies proved to be the strongest flowers ever and were in even better conditions than the roses. Only moments before the ceremony a storm decided to pass right in front of us. As in: a curtain of black rain literally slided across the sky for approximately 20 minutes, but luckily it kept it's safe distance and then just disappeared, as if it had never just threatened to play tricks on te entire wedding.
Maddy liked a lot of rose gold accents for the dinner table so the artisan Tuscan made candles with metallic finish were a perfect match. Lots of soft pinks, peaches and whites complimented the venue and olive green of the groves.
The entire team worked so hard to make sure all the details were perfect and Milos from FunkyBird Photography captured everything very elegantly. Angelo la Torre sent us a beautiful cinematographic trailer which you can enjoy here: https://vimeo.com/229255745 A special thank you to Bryony from Entourage for organising everything and inviting us into her team.
Some couples seem sprinkled with fairy dust and Natalia and Domenico are one of them. Such a lovely couple, beautiful, kind and enthusiastic. I loved working with them and was amazed by the energy Natalia put into every single detail of their wedding. The ceremony was held in a church in Signa, a small town right next to Florence and the reception continued in Villa Castelletti. The bride wanted a bouquet of David Austin roses and we used Patience and Keira. For the Bridesmaids I used Pink Bridal Piano and Sweet Avalanche. The church was all white with lots of fabric drapings and white roses, but we saved the real splendour for the dinner tables. Tall candelabras with gold coloured candles and lots of flowers placed at the base such as pink, cream and golden roses and pink hydrangeas. I've enjoyed going all out with this stunning wedding! The whole day was beautifully captured by Alessandro Chiarini, and you can watch the wedding film, shot by FDS wedding films, HERE
