Florence Wedding from Innocenti Studio Photograhy & Video

I’m not exaggerating when I saw my jaw literally dropped at these photos. Do you know, half of them are at the art historian bride’s home? You’ve simply got to read all about the wedding below and then block out your entire afternoon. You’re going to need at least that much time to devour every Tuscan inch of the full gallery from Innocenti Studio Photography & Video.

From Innocenti Studio Photograhy & VideoWhen Kira contacted us for the first time, she was looking for a photographer that would capture two particular moments of her wedding day: her own house in Florence where she would get ready for the wedding, and the Ceremony in one of the most beautiful churches in Florence, Santa Maria dei Pazzi. Before moving back to her home city of Paris, Kira (an art historian) and her fiancé Damien decided to celebrate their marriage in the homeland of Renaissance culture, in real Tuscan style.

Although we were expecting to meet Kira in a beautiful location, our jaws literally dropped when we saw the house she was sharing with her artist friends… huge rooms decorated with old frescos and pianos, contemporary paintings, dried flowers, whimsical objects and the air was still smelling of fresh paint… we were totally speechless!

The house was the perfect frame for the total simplicity of Kira’s dress, in perfect French chic style, and for the pink palette chosen for the bridesmaid dresses.

The ceremony took place in a secluded religious complex in the centre of Florence dated back from 1257, that includes the Church of Santa Maria Maddalena dei Pazzi and a former convent, in Borgo Pinti. The reception was then held in the fourteenth Century residence of Il Trebbiolo, nested between the hills of Fiesole and surrounded by olive trees, with a breathtaking view of the valley at sunset.

The wedding was a triumph of understated elegance and simplicity, and the main design was the perfect choice of venues and location made by Kira, that we think couldn’t represent better the real essence of Florence, bringing together its two essences: the city of the Arts per excellence through the artists’ house and the Renaissance Church, and the beauty of the landscape and its cousin at Il Trebbiolo.

From the Bride… The main idea for me and Damien was to have a beautiful Tuscan wedding in Italy. As I am an art Historian, I was living in Florence at the time, and I wanted to have my wedding in a beautiful Renaissance/Baroque church and a decoration inspired by Italian Renaissance sculpture (Della Robbia’s).

Even the food we chose was not just Italian, but typically Tuscan, and the menu was prepared according to the season. For the catering we chose Guidi Lenci, the best ever really in Florence, and food and service were perfect indeed!

The designer of my dress is Berengère Saint Pierre and the invites were made in Florence as well from the Il Parione, the owner Stefano is quite amazing and I would say he’s the best in Florence – as my photographers Emma & Esther from Innocenti Studio – the pictures are absolutely beautiful and we LOVE them!

Tuscany Villa di Nozzole Wedding from Heather Waraksa

Tuscany is one of those places that I have never had the opportunity to visit, but just know I would love. Maybe it’s because every wedding we receive from this Italian paradise is literally dripping with romance and every image captured looks straight from a fairytale.  All I know is that I would rush off tomorrow to spend all eternity soaking in the fabulous countryside and old-world magic… and would say “I do” in an instant in one of Tuscany’s amazing villas.  So, this breathtaking affair captured by Heather Waraksa? It’s literally a dream come true with a stunning Villa di Nozzole setting, an intimate joy-filled reception and an entire gallery of lovely just waiting to be adored.  Join me there for sooo much more.

From Heather WaraksaI wanted to share Marisa and Brad’s destination wedding with you that took place in Tuscany. It was an extremely intimate event with nine in attendance (including myself and my second photographer) at a private villa on a vineyard. To say it was my dream wedding would be an understatement. Setting, experience, family, food and wine were the focus.

From the Bride… Despite spending more than a decade in the same city and having several mutual friends, we never crossed paths until friends of ours decided to move. We met at a going away party in Anchorage, Alaska and it was truly love at first sight. It was a whirlwind romance from there; engaged in Hawaii, moved to Baku, Azerbaijan, and married in the hills of Tuscany, Italy all within a year. Crazy. When we thought about places to get married, we both agreed it couldn’t get any more romantic than the wine country of Tuscany, Italy. Rolling hills, vineyards and villas seemed like the perfect setting. A destination wedding was also ideal given our new home overseas. Once we saw the pictures of Villa di Nozzole and the surrounding landscape, we knew we found our wedding location. We both wanted a small intimate wedding where we could actually enjoy ourselves as well as our special guests. We decided that in order to do this, we would only have our parents and one witness each present. We also wanted our parents to enjoy the Villa as well as the beautiful surroundings of Tuscany.

From Les Amis Photo… What happens when an Irish couple gets married in Italy? They have a lot of fun.

They love Oneglia, a city in Liguria Coast, and they decided to get married there. The atmosphere was relaxed and very funny. The style was a mix of elegance and shabby chic details with blue as the primary colour. The venue was a particular villa because it was the house of a clown.

The tables were named like Italian sites, and the decoration was rustic but romantic, with candles and low lights. The was a first dance under  the rain, and the dancing party was improvised under the arches. The bride dress was very chic and the groom dress was of a deep blue.

It’s as though my two worlds collided with one seriously stunning result, and it was all made possible by the workings of Franci’s Flowers Wedding Design. So you can trust me when I say my weekend will be spent right here.

A lot of inspiring details from feathers on bride’s wedding dress from Italian fashion designer Alberta Ferretti to stunning arch of roses and ivy, to gorgeous David English roses of hand-tied bouquet, elegant centerpieces of ivory and peach color palette of english roses and ivory freesias onto fish ball.

I couldn’t hold back the tears of joy as we were saying words of love to each other, with our families by our side. My father walked me down the aisle to Paul McCartney’s ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, and of Mikhail best moment when we danced our first dance to Cat Powers ‘Sea of Love’ .

Amalfi Coast Wedding at Villa dei D’Armieto from Jillian Modern Photography

I was lucky enough to spend a few days of my honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, and I can honestly say I left a little piece of my heart there. It’s pure heaven. Every little bit of the beautiful coastline wrapped me up and made me want to stay forever, so when I laid eyes on this wedding from Jillian Modern Photography? I was a goner. I got completely lost in all the Italian goodness, and I don’t regret one bit. Because this pretty fête captures so much of what I loved about that gorgeous place topped off with a Bride in a Vera Wang gown – officially checking off all my weaknesses. See so much more here.

From Jillian Modern PhotographyThis wedding is 100% DIY, all details were tended to by the bridal party on the morning of the wedding. It was a fun team effort! Lemons… lemons… and more lemons! And if you have ever been to Sorrento you will know why. The entire peninsula is covered by lemon trees. They incorporate the lemon into everything that you eat or drink. I had also fallin in love with the color green, and when we went to see the Villa dei D’Armieto, the interior used this color everywhere in its details.
