Since they met, Ben a Sharlotte knew they wanted a backyard wedding in Tuscany. Already after the first sight, they start dating, and they found so much complicity and affinity that is hard to find nowadays. But not only they envisioned a life together, they had the same idea about their backyard wedding in Tuscany.
Sharlotte and Ben, had this sweet idea of an intimate gathering, without all the fuss ofbig weddings, but at the same time they wanted some that inspired to the guests a “oh-so-romantic” and with a touch of glamour. One of the pluses of a backyard wedding is that you can be as creative as you like. You can truly build the vision that you have of your big day, moreover there are plenty of wedding colours’ scheme that are completely suitable for this type of event.
A perfect place for a backyard wedding
When Sharlotte and Ben contacted me, I wasn’t expecting to ended up working with a couple with so much creativity. Fun, laid back and relaxed are the perfect words to describe this duo. By the time we started talking about their wedding plans and their ideas, it was already clear that they weren’t looking for something ordinary or already seen, taken from the glossy publications.
They wanted something unique a backyard wedding in Tuscany. We scouted Tuscany for two days, from north to south and from east to west, but at the end we found it: the perfect place to get married.
A small Fattoria, converted into a BB able to host the exact number of guests that were inviting (what a luck!!). Surrounded by vineyards and with splendid views and lawns it was simply what the couple was looking for: a plain canvas to dress up with their ideas.
The dress and the attire
Sharlotte wore a romantic wedding gown, with a soft corset paired with a tulle gown. The most spectacular thing of the bridal outfit were the shoes. A unique piece of art.
Hand made in England by an expert artisan. The shoes’ model was a simple stiletto heels court shoes, but the details were something unique and that you never see that often.
Ben dressed up with pure elegance, a blue suit that stand out against all the greenery of the Fattoria and at the same time it combined perfectly with the bridal party’s colors.
The bridal party of this backyard wedding, wore a vivid and energetic red, the same of Sharlotte’ s shoes’ details and main flowers of the bouquet. A timeless result, at the same time romantic and truly charming.
I absolutely loved working with this couple at their wedding flowers. All but common, with vibrant touches of colors and bold hues the florals of this wedding were unquestionably amazing. Sharlotte had clear ideas about the colors that she wanted, a colourful and dazzling mixtures of shades and hues to stand out against all the greenery of the venue, the perfect match for backyard wedding.
Moreover, the bride chose a cascade shaper for her bouquet. At the same time the softness of the flower’s project continued for the giant arch that was build on the garden and the endless flowers used to adorn the tables. Two long tables were places in the patio of the villa to complete the look of this backyard wedding.
The backyard wedding
In addition to all the beauty of this backyard wedding, Sharlotte and the bridesmaid got ready all together in a cheerful atmosphere, full of laughing and fun talks. In the same moments, Ben was having fun with his pals in another wing of the Fattoria.
This lovely duo, decided for a whimsical first look in the secret gardens of the villa. After this touching moment, the ceremony took place in the lawns. A family member officiated a touching ceremony and the exchange of the vows was particularly touching.
The aperitif of this backyard wedding took place next to the ceremony area. Next to the trees that remined a magical forest, a corner of chill comfort area for guests was created with a vintage luggage with blankets.
Not much to say about the reception, that was absolutely fun, romantic and infused of good vibes like the rest of the day.
