From our first meeting with the bride, a famous producer and scriptwriter, we knew that this wedding was going to be unique with its emphasis on scriptwriting, music production and entertainment. Her deep artistic experience meant that she had many great ideas about how her wedding should take place. It was going to be a challenge, so we got to work.
The couple chose the castle Savoia, which with its style and atmosphere is reminiscent of a Tuscan chateau. For the design, we offered a Tuscan style wedding, but the bride thought it was too rustic, she wanted something else, a more traditional, elegant wedding based in a mansion. So, we took the best of both worlds and merged the ideas together.
The colour palette was a mix of different shades of white, cream, olive green and gold, the wedding invitations were made of the same colour. We combined a velvet flock handcrafted paper with a bold gold text. We also added a special monogram for the betrothed couple and other luxurious touches, like the velvet desks for the wedding book and even a monogrammed box for the wedding rings. An intriguing idea was the welcome bags for hosts containing a seating card, a fan, and a personal message from the newly-weds.
The wedding ceremony was arranged untraditionally, in a circle. The circular wedding arch symbolized infinity, a perfect symbol for the event. The bride wished for pampas grass, which we combined with a white/green floral arrangement. The outcome was fresh and truly original.
The wedding table was organized in a classic T shape. The table had a beautiful tablecloth with a beige tint, glass plates with a golden stripe and gold silverware. The printed menu on handcrafted paper and olive-green cloth gave it a flair, which worked perfectly with the white/green floral arrangement and golden chairs.
The luxurious banquet included special Italian delicacies. The icing on the cake was, well, the wedding cake – it had 3 flavors and was accompanied by a designer sweet bar, which was served in the relaxing corner. An extra touch of luxury was the “Prosecco-van”, where delicious prosecco was served.
The couple chose a classic style of clothing. The bride picked a luxury laced wedding dress, from the brand Navy blue and the groom a quintessential black tux. We thought long and hard about the shade of the bridesmaid’s dress, eventually deciding to go for a beige hue with an olive green undertone, perfectly matching the overall theme in a very elegant manner.
We paid particular attention to the music/entertainment program. At the reception Chuck Wansley played, an American drum legend – and some family members even joined in. A few guests prepared a plethora of fun minigames. The day was great, with a relaxed atmosphere and all the guests truly enjoyed a very special wedding.
