What about a dream wedding on Lake Maggiore with a romantic religious ceremony overlooking the lake?
Today we would love to speak about Fiona and Marco’s wedding.
Fiona and Marco are a wonderful couple who chose our wonderful Lake Maggiore to tie the knot!
Marco is Italian, his family lives close to Milan but he lives in UK since many years. It just there where he met beautiful Fiona!
She is Scottish and surely a beautiful girl!
Marrying an Italian guy she also speak a little of Italian and she wanted to incorporate some of Italian traditions in her wedding matching them perfectly with Scottish ones!
Marco and Fiona opted for a religious ceremony to the amazing church of Sacro Monte of Ghiffa.
All guests stayed in Pallanza and arrived here with a short transfer we planned for them. Fiona arrival was more than beautiful! She arrived on wonderful Bentley owned by her father who is a car lover since ever!
She was just stunning in her elegant dress.
It was all made with laces with some gray drawings that added a touch of charm!
It matched somehow bridesmaids dresses.
Fiona didn’t opt for classical bridesmaids dresses but she piked lovely short dresses with a vintage roses pattern.
The four pretty bridesmaids were very elegant!
Together with Fiona we studied the way to match all floral decoration and stationary around this pattern.
La Piccola Selva Team made up by Monika and Paola did a wonderful job with Fiona and bridesmaids’ bouquets and with small but elegant centerpieces to Villa Rusconi.
Stationary was customized and created on Fiona’s wishes reproducing exactly the pattern on bridesmaids dresses on order of services, names cards, table names and table chart.
After the ceremony the group reached Villa Rusconi for a wonderful cocktail in the wide lawn of the villa and a dinner to follow under the pavilion.
One of the most touching part of the day was when Marco and Fiona did their entrance in the pavilion for the dinner.
They were followed by a bagpiper as Scottish tradition wants.
He was not a simple bagpiper! He was Fiona’s father who is a professional player!
A great moment for everyone!
Fiona and Marco really wanted a special illumination for the night and for this reason a light designer was able to re create with artificial lights a romantic atmosphere similar to the one of candle lights
Have a look to the final effect isn’t it great?
Dances and party followed the gourmand dinner with a lot of fun for both Scottish, English and Italian guests!
Just a great party!
