Luxury wedding in Liguria
Marco and Valentina are a young couple in love, with different roots but strongly linked by the desire to start a new chapter of their lives together. He is originally from Lecco, while she is from Liguria. They decided to get married in Liguria, in Valentina's hometown, and to make sure everything was perfect, they entrusted themselves completely to Federico Silvestri wedding planner, who also guided them as wedding stylist for their wedding in Liguria.
Valentina, with Federico's support, chose two spectacular couture dresses. The first dress was made at the Couture Hayez atelier in Milan and consisted of a bodice in precious French lace with long sleeves and a turtleneck collar, underneath, a wide double organza skirt, which gave her the look of a real princess. To complete her look, she opted for elegant nude patent leather Dior slingback pumps and chose to wear a pretty headband instead of a veil.
Marco and the groomsmen were also guided by Federico in the customisation of every detail of their suits, from the fabric to the lining, from the lapels to the pockets and buttons, taking care of every detail at the Milan tailor's shop Sanvenero. The gem? Marco and Valentina wanted to thank the groomsmen with a special thought, giving them Marinella ties in the same shade of green, the colour of their wedding.
The ceremony was held in the same church where Valentina's parents got married, which was decorated for the occasion with a green carpet, while the pews were covered with precious fabrics in the same shade.Two gold structures were placed to frame the entrance, topped by cups full of flowers, which created a magical and refined atmosphere. After the ceremony, the bride and groom drove away in a romantic vintage Porsche, ready to enjoy their special day together.
The location of the reception was the enchanting orangery of Villa Lagorio, set in a park with a splendid sea view. Everything was customised according to the couple's desired mood: green cushions and poufs decorated the aperitif area, while the colourful flowers that Valentina loves so much echoed the decor of the Versace underplate. The super-exclusive mise en place played with contrasts: unfinished wooden tables, white linen runners, crystal glasses with gold edging as well as cutlery, plexiglass chairs that echoed the transparency of the structure.
How to make an event unforgettable? Hundreds of candles lit for the dinner gave the whole thing a touch of magic, along with a canopy of stars that gently illuminated the scene. The wedding cake was placed in a graceful wrought-iron gazebo, set up with white awnings and surrounded by bowls filled with flowers and ramage of climbing greenery that climbed over the structure, creating an enchanting setting.
Before the moment of cutting the cake, Valentina surprised everyone with a change of dress, wearing an exclusive piece created for her by designer Simone Marulli. This second dress consisted of a romantic mermaid skirt in pink silk Mikado, combined with a plumetis tulle bodice tied at the waist by a ribbon in the same shade as the skirt. Her bridal make-up was enriched with a smokey eye that framed her eyes, while her hair was styled in an elegant 1920s-inspired hairstyle, adorned with a precious jewellery clasp. Her bouquet was the perfect complement to her dress: fragrant English roses, astilbe and bouvardia.
To pamper the guests, a super confetti and a corner wanted by Marco was set up, which included cigars, rum and chocolate.
