Romantic shades of green and white
We haven’t quite tired of this year’s Pantone colour of the year yet! Greenery is so fresh and versatile, there are countless ways to incorporate the tone into your beautiful wedding day.
One of our planners, Paolo Cicognani recently created a gorgeous style shoot at The Abbey of San Pietro in Valle, captured by photographer Alessandro Mari and videographer Thomas de Lorenzo, and we couldn’t wait to share these amazing shots to spark some inspiration for you.
Green chic style with an abundance of romance was the inspiration for the shoot and the serenity and peace of the location definitely helped to achieve that. Beautiful harmony with nature, far away from the stresses of life, the monastery and panoramic gardens just breathed a natural charm.
Walking through the panoramic garden at The Abbey of San Pietro you’re greeted with incredible views over the valley that only improves with a beautiful Umbrian sunset. Fading lights blending with the landscape and disappearing behind the mountains – this really is a perfect wedding location.
Fresh white lace made the green pop, with a natural wooden table from Apollinare Catering complimenting the natural wedding look perfectly. Fresh white chairs tied the decor together, matching the white tones and keeping the colour palette fresh, light and gorgeous! Gold edged plates with matching cutlery were accessorised with beautiful hexagonal menus from Giulia Barabani, adding interest to a table with natural shapes and textures.
With a theme of greenery chic, the flowers by Paola Carletti kept with the concept. Pure crisp and clean white daisies, dahlias and rose blooms sat with delicate gypsophila and chamomile. Olive branches, green hydrangea, viburnum leaves and green foliage wrapped around the flowers to create a truly eye-catching display.
The Bride and Groom
The couple were immaculately dressed in outfits from Moda Sposi Atelier, with hair and makeup by Beatrice Pagnottini. Wearing a simple and elegant wedding gown, the bride’s grecian style dress was heavily beaded with pretty, sparkling embellishment. The dropped neckline and matching back stretched to the sparkling waistband and beautiful earrings and cuff bracelet from Euforia Bijoux complimented the outfit perfectly. A striking blue tuxedo provided a splash of colour to the day. A silver waistcoat and pure white silk tie lifted the ensemble and matched the silver tones in the bride’s dress beautifully.
A greenery theme needs a gorgeous greenery cake, and this creation by Cinzia Maturi is the ideal centrepiece. With a simple topper and fresh flowers surrounding the wedding cake, a semi-naked option is a perfect choice for a natural wedding theme – the cake is as natural as the theme!
