Cepa and John, wanted something special and intimate but also legally binding. Moreover, they were travelling with their little cute son and wanted him not to feel the stress of a big affair. after considering the options available between countryside, small villages and big cities, they booked the terrace of the registry office of Fiesole, just few miles away from Florence.
The Dress & Attire
Cepa wasn’t the classic bride. She had very unique ideas about how things should have been during the day. As well, she had the same approach with the wedding gown. A unique hand made short dress was a true surprise on the day. The distinctly Sixties inspired look, gave a fresh and distinctive vibe at the attire of the bride. The short wedding dress was paired with a white leather oxford shoe. This combo was absolutely stunning. Simple but at the same time extremely stylish. Cepa looked stunning for her civil elopement in Florence.
The little boy, wore classic and comfy pants with nice suspenders and a white shirt. A blow tie was the cutest touch to give to this little man a weddingly look. John, wore a classic and light grey suit.
The civil elopement in Florence.
Getting ready in one room with two boys it takes a lot of effort. That is why the bride decided to book a separate room for herself to get her makeup and hair done and to enjoy a little the wedding morning. While Cepa was getting ready, John took their son for a special breakfast in one of the best pastry shops in Florence. The best way to chick off the day.
While John was returning to the hotel, the flowers were delivered in Cepa’s room. An surprising wild bouquet, made of fall flowers. The wild greens, combined with the scotch broom, berries and orange roses. A truly fresh harvest bouquet in the wood.
An orange hues tiny buttonhole was also brought along with the one for the groom. this duo couldn’t have been more romantic. It remembered the importance of the family and how cute are the little boys dressed up, LOL!
Not other flowers were ordered for this civil elopement in Florence, but everything was simply perfect. A clean and natural look, focused on emotions and family.

Cepa and John as documentary producers, love travelling and discovering new places. For them it was important to stay away from the confusion of the city.
