An Italian wedding will always steal away our heart

Italy will always steal my heart which means an Itaian wedding will make me swoon!  Last year we had the pleasure of being in Italy for a week with an awesome group of photographers and the always talented White Feather and Co who curated the most stunning styled shoot for us.

This gorgeous Italian wedding shoot was set in the grounds of Count Ceconi Castle, in the heart of the Arzino Valley.  With inspiration drawn from the stunning surroundings, the muted tones of the castle stone and complimenting the breath taking valley surroundings.  The ethos behind this wedding shoot was to bring a relaxed and modern feel to the historic traditional setting of the castle whilst keeping it simple and attainable for couples looking to elope to this stunning setting.

The bride was dressed in an exquisite Kate Halfpenny gown.  The intricate lace detailing on the bodice and floaty chiffon skirt added both an elegant and whimsical air to the bride.  Our groom was dashingly dressed in a Ted Baker suit and patterned shirt which created both a relaxed feel whilst of course maintaining the style and sophistication of an Italian wedding.

Romantic calligraphy penned notes were shared between the couple, a romantic addition to a first look or as a way to personalise wedding vows.  The calligraphy was extended through the travel inspired stationery and the table décor.  Rose wine accented the blush and natural tones of the table, with greenery and delicate florals taken from the castle grounds.

The beauty of an Italian wedding is not only in the gorgeous surroundings and of course dreamy light, it’s being able to celebrate your wedding outdoors, amongst the trees, Mediterranean nature at its finest.
