VENUE: Villa Mangiacane

TABLE SETTING: Tuscany Flowers

​DRESS: Maids To Measure

BOUQUET: Fiori Del Chianti

This past spring I have been lucky enough to visit the amazing Villa Mangiacane, situated in the Chianti region in Tuscany, Italy. I travelled together with the lovely Jessica from the Deluxe Wedding Blog and we simply jumped at the opportunity to organise a styled photo shoot mixing rusticity and elegance.

The most innovative element of this styling is the table setting: instead of with traditional flower centrepieces, the table is decorated with citrus trees, lavender, hydrangeas and antique candelabra. Add plenty of candles, in gold decorated holders of different shape and sizes, and you have created the most romantic atmosphere. The mix of delicate pastel lilacs and gold hues in our palette is perfect for a destination wedding in the Tuscan countryside.

The bride wears a stunning dress, a simple, flowing design with a slightly retro’ style, the colour of which ties in with the elegance of the Villa and the beautiful surroundings.
