Check it out our stories and enjoy the magic atmosphere of our August weddings feeling the heat of a great summer in Italy flipping through our wedding photos below!
The first one was followed by La Piccola Selva Floral Designer Team for us. They followed Angharard and David’s day on 5th August. She was Irish and he was Australian both living in Switzerland. They tied the knot at Villa Bossi with a legal civil ceremony by the shores of romantic Lake Orta. Angharard wanted a loose, informal and organic bouquet. She wanted some greenery such as rosemary, olive branches and eucalyptus. She also wanted a long drop of the bouquet of about 1 meter! Wow!
After the civil ceremony they planned their wedding reception at Villa Crespi in a small elegant room of the restaurant. A long table for the whole party with wonderful gypsophila spheres enriched with eucalyptus, olive branches and rosemary.

We close our month in Southern Italy for an enchanting wedding in Apulia that Michela and Michela followed for us on 28th August.
A small weeding for 32 guests for Sarah and Dean who came from US to tie the knot in a fantastic Apulian Masseria in Martina Franca close to Taranto. We are in Itria valley where you can find wonderful trulli and a pretty country church where Sarah and Dan exchanged their vows and had their symbolic blessing.
Bride arrived on an red Alfa Romeo Giulia… very Italian style!
After the ceremony bride and groom had some great photos in Martina Franca while the guests were enjoying a great aperitif and lovely music. Apulian traditional food was served on wooden tables in the courtyard of the ancient Masseria. It was like a real Italian traditional festival with fairy lights and a very special Italian atmosphere.
The whole group then moved in another area of the Masseria all made in white stones where a long table cater all guests. Laces, books, English roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, cups and hand made stationary and favors made of olive oil bottles created a fantastic setting for Sarah and Dean’s wedding reception.
Lot of dances and amazing sweet buffet to follow for a fantastic Apulian night.
