Oh Tuscany, when will our paths ever cross? A trip to Tuscany just seems divine, and hosting a wedding there just seems too good to be true. But that’s exactly where this cute couple said their I do’s – with the gorgeous Tuscan views as their guest of honor. And may I just say that the bride’s dress has taken my breath away? The entire affair is like a dream, and I highly recommend you take a little journey to the full gallery of gorgeousness from the talented Warm Pears to make your day even dreamier.
From the Bride…Andy and I were really keen to have an intimate wedding day. We have a large extended family, but feel that sometimes huge parties can take away from the importance of the occasion itself. So we decided to have a small event for immediate family only, followed by a large bash on our return for our family and friends. For us La Bandita ticked all the boxes- excellent food and wine and most importantly, the most incredible views we have ever seen.
I took inspiration from my dress for the theme. The antique lace and tulle of my dress was stitched with butterflies. Our wedding invitations were large cream pop-up cards with dozens of glittering gold butterflies which literally flew towards you. We scattered gold butterflies on the table, and stuck some into the candles to blow in the breeze. Andy’s mum spent months crocheting butterflies to hang down and sway over the table.
