After their ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious dinner in an outdoor, greenery venue. Enjoy every single moment a fairytale wedding through the following images by Duesudue!

From the bride: “We met at a party hosted by a couple of our common friends. We have been together for more than 6 years now. We have traveled together and set up home in 3 countries while traveling for work together. Giuseppe proposed to me on one of our most memorable holidays in Florence, Italy. It was the most wonderful setting on a fine Italian summer evening. We had been together for so long we are a strong team and very committed to our life and future together. How did you allocate your budget? For us the priority was to celebrate with our loved ones, spend time with them and make sure all of them enjoyed our wedding and make memories to last a lifetime. So, we allocated our budget based on what was most important to us.”

“I’m not comfortable with the concept of wearing a dress once and wasting the beauty of it; so the dress was a pre-loved dress by the designer Rime Arodaky purchased from She matched my style perfectly by being quirky and yet capturing the feminine elegance perfectly. My shoes were from a place called Chinese Laundry and accessories were from a local wedding boutique where we live. But my best accessory was the beautiful flower crown made by our florist.”

“The suit was custom made from local store Aobaba Tailor in Hoi-An, Vietnam. This suit has a special place in our hearts as we got it on a 3-week holiday in November 2015 and it was our companion throughout our holiday. My only bridesmaid and maid of honor was my sister. We got a dress designed for her in her favorite colour; blue from the local wedding boutique I got my accessories from.”

“The ceremony took place in  Fattoria e Villa di Rignana, Tuscany, Italy. We were looking for a weekend wedding at a picturesque country house. After searching across many countries, we found the Fattoria e Villa di Rignana in Tuscany and it was love at first sight. The Villa was built in the 1700’s and was perfect for our small wedding party to spend a perfect weekend together. It also housed a beautiful chapel with a frescoed ceiling where we held our ceremony.”

“The biggest surprise was how overwhelmed I got when I saw Giuseppe at the altar. Even though we have been together so long and we were very prepares and committed to spending our lives together; that moment made me so emotional and so content at the same time.”

“I would say our wedding was a perfect blend of sophisticated style with beautiful bohemian elements. The atmosphere was relaxed and the events flowing in a natural flowy fashion making it fun and comfortable for our near and dear ones. We wanted a very romantic setting but in a subtle manner. As the florist Marie Lou and I hit it off immediately we locked in on elegant but understated colours like greens, whites and pinks keeping in mind with the natural beauty of the location. We chose seasonal flowers like peonies, Bombastic and O’Hara roses, wax flowers, olive branches and eucalyptus.”

“The location at which we wanted our wedding weekend to be was our topmost priority. We have splurged the most on that to set the mood for our wedding and making sure all out guests were absolutely comfortable. The second thing was the food. We are so grateful to have found Tonino for our catering, as we are both vegetarian and needed a fully vegetarian menu. He left our guests a 100% content. The third equally important thing was our photographer. A photographer is the only person who can make memories last for ever in the way of pictures. So, we had no qualms in splurging on the photographer. We did however, save a lot on decorating the place by using seasonal flowers, because the location and the décor of the venue itself was naturally fabulous.”

“Duesudue was our first only choice. We fell in love with their natural and spontaneous style when they shot my sister’s wedding in 2015. We were very keen on getting candid and natural pictures and not posed ones. They captured the essence of our wedding so perfectly”, the bride shared with us about the photographer.

“The chapel was already so beautiful we used simple wax flowers and eucalyptus bunches. The garlands for the table were made from the O’Hara roses and smelled divine. As I was not afraid to go big on my crown we decided to use peonies for it. We got very a simple cylindrical cake from Sugarcups; topped with the same flowers as my bouquet, pink peonies and white roses. All our stationary was from Midorilla stationery and wedding favors were handmade by Papabubble and we got the stickers and seals from Etsy. We love adding personal touches, so we designed the stickers and wax seals we put on our wedding favors. We then got them made on Etsy.”

“We had 70 of our dearest friends and family who flew in from 7 different countries with us. We took about 9 months to plan our wedding. We are both vegetarian, so it was very important for us to have a full vegetarian menu. Despite having no meat or fish, our caterer Tonino ensured our guests were completely satisfied. We had some Avocado and pomegranate crostini, mango spring rolls with cilantro-avocado dipping sauce, grilled veggie kabobs with green goddess dressing and pickle caprese salad kabobs, mushroom ragout with fresh herbs, etc.”

“We are both big lovers of music and that was a very important aspect for us. Live music was very vital and we got a swing- folk band from Florence. Their music was a modern blend of traditional ballads of Tuscany. We had an amazing DJ, Andrea Ribas who made all our events full of life from the ceremony till the end of the reception at 5 AM.  Our band created such a fun informal atmosphere for us. That being led on by our DJ kept it so full of life that our guests danced the night away till 5 AM next morning. This just showed how much our loved ones enjoyed our wedding and that was the best part.”

“You wedding day is a day of joy. You should do your best to enjoy it fully with only the people who truly matter to you. Wedding planning can be stressful especially if you are planning it yourself but always remind yourselves not to spend energy on things that wont matter in the long run.”
