Today I would like to tell you about Chiara and Luca’s wedding in Finale Ligure. Held in the magnificent venue of the “Fortezza di Castelfranco” .
Terraces with amazing views on the sea and romantic gardens where the reasons why our couple chose this place for their big day.
# The ceremony
It the topmost area of the Fortezza we set-up a corner of the garden overlooking the sea for the civil ceremony. Luca and Chiara exchanged vows in between the blue sky and the blue Mediterranean Sea. A very romantic moment surrounded by all their family and friends.
# The wedding palette
The wedding palette was studied in order to be in harmony with the surroundings. It was inspired by the colours of the Italian region we where in: Liguria. Therefore we had the blue from the sea and the green from the Mediterranean scrub, with touches of white.
As table centrepiece there where blue hydrangeas and white lisianthus in glass vases with different shapes, and green rosemary plants.
# Fairy Lights
Dinner took place in the long terrace facing the breath-taking view of Finale Ligure’s gulf, where the almost 100 guests found their seat at the imperial table.
We chose to keep the mise en place simple but not without details. A glass underplate with the napkin, and on top the place holder with the guest’s name. Each place holder had a leaf of the aromatic plant that identified the area of the table.
If before sunset the main attraction was the view, as the sun went down, it was the starry sky we set up that caught the guest’s attention.
Thousands of little golden lights surrounded the guests in a magical and intimate atmosphere!
We are sure that everyone will remember Chiara and Luca’s wedding as a moment of brightness, not only for the set-up but also because of the pureness of the emotions that came with the day.
