29 Mag An inspired spring wedding in a city villa
Swedish couple throwing a spring wedding in the Florentine hills
After waiting over a year to get married, Marika and Herink created the spring wedding of their dreams in the hills of Florence, at Villa le Piazzole. Everything was even beyond what they dreamed. From the weather to the food and the wedding flowers.
Spring weddings are special on their own. At no other time of the year, all flowers are in bloom, weather is not too hot or too cold and all sparklers with wonderful smells of fresh nature. All of this makes spring an amazing backdrop for weddings.
The Destination & Venue
As navigated travellers around the world, with a deep knowledge of countries and their accents, Marika and Henrik knew that Tuscany was the place they wanted for their spring wedding. Finding the vila was another question. It took to the couple multiple travels during the year to find the perfect match for their dreams. Villa le Piazzole, a vebue unique on its own. They genuinely loved the atmosphere of this place
The Dress & Attire
Marika opted for a super fresh vintage dress, just few adjustement and it was perfect for her. The lines of this lace wedding gown was timeless and unique, so versatile for a spring wedding.
The silky material of the bridesmaids dresses, the different colors made every bridesmaid look fabulous and comfortable during the wedding day. The pastels colours combine with the soft romantic beauty, inspired by the spring wedding theme, were absolutely gorgeous during the ceremony.
The Flowers and décor
Spring season boasts feelings of rebirth, renewal and growth. It is almost possible to find any type of flowers. Options for colour schemes are endless. The charming and natural décor of the wedding day says a lot about the couple’s character. Respecting the natural ambiance of the garden, the ceremony area was filled up just with greenery and touches of light shades flowers.
For the centrepieces, were used pastels tones and a long natural wooden table. Abundance of candles were places on tables, just to wait the right moment for their light to make the atmosphere even more magical.
The wedding day
The big day was more of a low-key family party than a formal celebration. After a first look in the vineyards of the villa – yes, they do produce their own organic wine! – a quick retouch for the bride and then ready for the ceremony in the secret garden. Such an intimate setting for a spring wedding.
Bride and Groom walked down the aisle together, holding their hands and crossing the beautiful secret garden in full spring bloom mode. The ceremony was all about emotions, feelings and the love to each other. Two intimate friends of Marika and Herink, played guitars during the exchange of vows.
Swedish receptions are long, it’s matter of fact, the dinner is filled up with speeches and games. Toastmaters did a great job and made everything heartfelt and funny. This true tradition, makes Swedish weddings so fun and enjoyable and they are perfect for a spring wedding, when the evenings are so enjoyable.
When the sun went down, the many fairy lights and the hundreds of candles, gave to the dinner table a fascinating and pleasant family – style atmosphere. Like in a spring wedding outdoor. There was so much humour and joy during the whole reception. The couple wanted their guests to feel like a home away from home. The food served was rigorously Tuscan, including some delicacies from Florence, such as Pappa al pomodoro and the chicken liver pate.
This spring wedding ended with everyone laughing, dancing, and having fun in the dancing all of the villa. The Dj did a great job pimping up the party.
It was a real pleasure and privilege to work with this amazing couple from Sweden and to realise this spring wedding, with so many pretty personal touches.
