You guys!! If a colorful Italian wedding day is something you’ve ever considered, let Elizabeth and George’s gorgeous nuptials at Castello di Vincigliata convince you to DO IT. Florence, Italy holds a special place in the hearts of both the bride and groom, so the decision to marry there was a natural one. What they wanted, however, was something completely bespoke to them so they enlisted the skills of Sposiamo Vito make their dreams a reality. A lively palette of yellows, pinks, blues and greens shines in a ribbon installation and the amazing graphic florals by La Rosa Canina.The courtyard ceremony and candlelit outdoor reception filled with lemons and cafe lights highlights the historic location and are everything destination wedding dreams are made of. Lucky for us, Lisa Poggi Photography was on hand to capture all the amazing details of the day.
What made the wedding special and unique?
We wanted a wedding that was totally bespoke to us, and were very hands on in every decision, so that everything had a personal touch. Our “Save the Date” in the form of mini bottle of limoncello stamped with a save the date sticker, accompanied by a recipe card for a cocktail to be made using the limoncello. We also knew we wanted to get married in Florence: I have grown up going to Forte dei Marmi, a nearby beach resort on the Italian riviera, which is where my brother got married. I lived and studied in Florence for 3 months when I was 18, and the following year (the year we met), I went back for a month and George came to visit me there. This is where we truly fell in love, and we have been back to visit Florence every year since then. All the ideas for the wedding stemmed from our love of this beautiful city.
Of course, the setting for the wedding itself – the breathtaking Castello di Vincigliata – made the wedding unique in itself, but we decided to create a completely different vibe to how it is normally used. We chose to make it far less formal than it can sometimes appear. We also had special permission to use the cloister area to hold the actual ceremony, which was just the most dreamy setting – even if I had to walk around a giant plant pot in the middle of the aisle!
