ITALIAN WEDDING WITH PAMPAS GRASS & PINK LINENS

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.

Waterfall Inspired Archway of Flowers for Laura & Michael by Bradgate Flowers

Bradgate Flowers of Leicestershire have been creating tranquility for a Stapleford Park wedding I met Laura and Michael back in 2016, such a lovely couple with a very different outlook on the theme for their wedding day of June 2017 at Stapleford Park, Leicestershire! My brief was in Laura's words, "natural, lots and lots of greenery, with white flowers and lots of scent, must have scent!" But Laura's biggest ask was... "A waterfall inspired archway" The arch was to be covered from top to bottom in soft Italian ruscus, scented white stocks, and placed between two large pillars in the Orangery. This…

Modern Heritage Styling

Supplier Spotlight | Modern Heritage Styling

We are truly delighted to include Modern Heritage Styling on our list of fabulous wedding suppliers. There are many, many, (and many more!) self professed wedding stylists out there but only a few are truly talented and on the ball when it comes to current trends - fewer still dare to be original and push the boundaries for those brides who refuse to follow the herd. Based in Lincolnshire and covering the surrounding counties of the East Midlands, owner Fran Berry is definitely one of the latter and a rare find - a stickler for perfection with an amazing eye for detail and the skill…
