Ainar & Dodi   ♥   Tuscany, Italy

Photographer:   Neverending Magic 

 

No wonder Tuscany is one of the most popular destination wedding locations in the world. Rich in down-to-earth Italian culture, this relaxed yet indulgent region of Italy offers every wedding style that a wanderlust couple could wish for.

 

From elegant castles to stunning churches, from exclusive villas to rustic farmhouses, Tuscany delivers Italian charm personified, all wrapped up in breath taking countryside and with a hearty side order of incredible food, vino and world-class hospitality for good measure. Sounds pretty good right?!

 

Ainar and Dodi having previously visited Tuscany together knew how delightful a destination it was. So when they started their search for neutral ground in which to tie the knot, the beauty and romanticism of this region was an obvious choice.

 

Historical Villa Barberino, in Meleto played host to their informal yet oh-so-elegant celebration. The couple said ‘I Do’ outside in the glorious sunlit grounds, surrounded by their loved ones before enjoying alfresco dining as the sun set.

 

The super-talented Tania of Neverending Magic was also on hand to capture the joyful ambience of the day on camera.

It almost seems like the Amalfi Coast in Italy was made for destination weddings; luxury cliff top hotels with awe-inspiring vistas exude a certain timeless elegance that simply cannot be beaten.

 

Today’s styled shoot took place at the famous Belmond Hotel Caruso, a former 11th century palace perched high above the picturesque Ravello coastline – destination wedding heaven. Captured beautifully by the gifted Gert Huygaerts Photography, this ethereal wedding theme inspiration is sublime…and no wonder, it was lovingly created by the oh-so-talented Joy Proctor Design.

 

The wildly romantic setting, the delicate duck egg blue and antique gold palette and the exquisite details throughout this shoot create a stylish backdrop to this elegant and timeless theme.

Real Wedding – It’s Impossible Not To Love Venice

10/12/2014 | 1

Getting Married In Venice

Amy & Matt   ♥   Venice, Italy

Photographer:   AV-Photography

 

The floating city of Venice is undeniably one of the most beautiful and unique conurbations in the world. With its stunning combination of Gothic and Byzantine architecture, grand bridges and splendid squares, all impressively intertwined with the extraordinary gondola-filled canal network, this is one magical metropolis.

 

Considered by all as one of the most romantic cities on the planet, a destination wedding in Italy’s capital of romance will certainly be one that you and your guests will never forget!

 

Wanting to get married abroad, Amy and Matt, both from the UK, decided that the striking scenery of Venice was the locale for them and their destination wedding, and so they tied the knot in the beyond-beautiful St George’s Anglican Church before celebrating with their nearest and dearest and indulging on Italian delicacies and vino in the famous Locanda Cipriani (created by Giuseppe Cipriana, the world renowned founder of Harry’s Bar, Hotal Cipriani and Villa Cipriani).

 

Where else in the world can you exit your wedding by a sleek boat instead of a getaway car, before getting lost together in a marvellous maze of narrow streets, winding waterways and glorious gondolas? It’s impossible not to love Venice!

Hannah & Gareth   ♥   Lake Garda, Italy

Photographer:   AV-Photography

 

If there’s one location that delivers destination weddings with a generous side order of romance, it’s Italy. Big time. Every time.

 

Gareth and Hannah married on a beautifully blue-skied day in May, in Gardone Riviera, an intimate lakeside resort on the luscious Lake Garda in Italy. They eloped from Stafford in the UK to tie the knot, just the two of them, surrounded by breathtaking beauty and bathed in glorious sunshine – pure romantic bliss.

 

Together, they got ready for their dreamy day ahead, quietly enjoying their rustic chic B&B with wonderful views over the water, before being whisked off to their Town Hall ceremony on a tuk-tuk! Their talented photographer then took them on a walking tour of the historical town, capturing the precious first moments as excited newlyweds and soaking up the stunning views.

 

So if you’re thinking of eloping, I’m quite sure this intimate Italian lake elopement might just make up your mind!

Wedding Theme Inspiration – Enchanting Bridal Preparation Shoot

Getting Married Abroad Wedding Blog

 

The morning of your wedding day is like a dream; it’s difficult to put your finger on the feeling or for a description to do it justice.

 

It’s a little like the giddy sensation on Christmas morning when you’re a child. Waking up and realising that something exciting is going to happen, but knowing that you have to wait as it’s too early to get up yet – this combined with a hazy daydream sensation almost like it’s not real.

 

When these magical moments and the emotion of preparing to be a bride are caught on camera they’re priceless, so ensure that your wedding photographer spends a little time with you and your maids in the bridal suite at this special time.

 

Today’s sophisticated styled shoot has this thought in mind and is overflowing with romantic inspiration for your bridal preparation. The oh-so-talented team (Gert Huygaerts Photography and Joy Proctor Design to name just a few) flawlessly captured the essence of an elegant Italian wedding morning at the breathtaking Belmond Hotel Caruso.

 

Subtle shades of blush, duck egg blue, muted grey and off-white created a soft palette, perfectly fitting for this enchanting setting, whilst chic bridal accessories, antique jewellery and delicate details assisted in emphasizing the pure romanticism of this bridal preparation shoot.
