From SugarLove Weddings… Sarah Berends & Allan Ghiassi were married in the town centre of San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy and enjoyed a spectacular marquee reception on the grounds of the Castello Di Tizzano, Tuscany, Italy. Sarah & Allan have travelled the world in the name of love and first met over a decade ago however chose a 16th Century Tuscan villa to celebrate their wedding day surrounded by the closest of family & friends. The couple treated their guests to several days of sightseeing & indulgence which include a Fiat tour around the Tuscan hills along with a traditional pizza making evening & wine tasting.
As as award winning Art Director, Sarah chose a “Alice in Wonderland meets Phillippe Stark” theme where antique furniture was placed amongst modern pieces for a luxurious & surreal feel. Sarah chose 3 colours for the theme - poppy, baby blue & chartreuse. One of Sarah’s dearest US based friends made confetti out of little pieces of tissue paper in the same colours which made for an extraordinary celebration moment post ceremony in San Gimignano. The couples’ 50 guests were served a 7 course dinner seated on one long imperial dining table under a marquee in the garden. With amazing attention to detail the gardens were transformed and included lanterns suspended from tree branches, sofas, urns, rocking chairs and vintage books with candelabras throughout the gardens.
