What flowers did you have? The wedding party all had Gypsophila bouquets (or baby breath as we called it). The flowers are a symbol of everlasting love which we thought was a nice touch!
Where did you get married? Marco is Italian so we were married in Monterosso al Mare, a seaside town around 40 minutes’ drive from his hometown. It’s part of the Cinque Terre in Italy. Our venue was in Agriturismo Buranco where they make not only wine, but honey from their own bees and lots of other produce.
How did you decide on the style and look of your wedding? Our wedding style was very rustic with old barrels topped with lemons and herbs in little terracotta pots as table decorations. As the night wore on, we also had hundreds of little candles in lanterns hanging from lemon trees which came to life.
What was the best part of your day? This is the hardest question to answer as the whole day was perfect to me. Having all of our friends and family with us in Italy to celebrate was so special. It was also amazing seeing the whole day come together, it was better than I ever could have expected.
Advice for brides to be? It has to be the same advice I was told 100 times and never really paid attention to until it was all over – don’t stress out with the planning because on the day it will all fall into place. Time speeds up on your wedding day so enjoy every last minute!
