Small, intimate weddings are definitely becoming ‘a thing’. This outdoor wedding with pampas grass mini-shoot from Andreas Pinacci Photography proves the best things come in small packages. The backdrop is new wedding venue Villa Alceo in Viggiu, Italy which is about an hour from Milan and only half an hour from Lake Como. (Yes ladies, that’s only half an hour away from George Clooney.) Before becoming a boutique hotel, the house was a family home and over the years hosted many VIP and celebrity guests. According to their website they offer luxury accommodation and fine local food and wine.
The benefits of a smaller wedding mean you can still go to town with the details if that’s your thing but less place settings means the focus is on quality not quantity. In this case the simple table setting for twenty guests is a linen palette of pink with polished gold cutlery and gold edged glassware. Show stopping floral displays by Riccardo Ciceri incorporate the very much on trend Pampas Grass, bursting with pink and cream roses, displayed on tall antique gold stands. It’s these magnificent florals that add the wow factor to this party.
