Styled Shoots

An intimate, classic Italian Styled Wedding at a romantic, secret garden

This styled shoot was planned to provide inspiration for couples that would like to have an intimate, classic Italian wedding in the romantic and beautiful Rome. The planning is a collaboration between Canadian and Italian vendors to give a realistic expectation of the actual destination wedding planning.

A sunny, bright summer day is the perfect scenario for a classic wedding. The venue is in Grottaferrata in the Metropolitan City of Rome, which is around 40-minute drive from the city centre. The venue is a secret fairy garden welcoming the couple and the guests for an unforgettable Mediterranean experience with abundant elements of Italian traditions: lemons, olive trees, aromatic plants, pasta and cherry tomatoes.

The morning starts with the bridal preparation and continues with the bridal session at Colosseum, surrounded by the artistic and historical beauty of the Eternal City. Afterwards, the couple would get married during a private Civil Ceremony organised directly at the venue, to continue to enjoy with the closest relatives and friends.

As in the best romantic novels, the charming, shabby cottage, the secret garden and the winter garden host the Wedding Reception to live a perfectly cared Italian Day. A tasty, sumptuous meal, a relaxing atmosphere, the sensation to be in a bubble outside the present time, the rustic-chic flower decorations, the incredible perfume unleashed by the lemons in the warm air… give the whole wedding an enchanting touch, as in a dream.

The intense, pure light of the afternoon becomes softer until the sunset which is also the best moment to cut the pretty, yellow cake embellished with small, refined sugar daisies. Many details enrich the venue and its garden: each corner is a beautiful place to discover, the hours pass tasting a sip of fresh Limoncello and some crunchy Italian almond-confetti, dancing, chatting and having fun in the golden sunset in an informal, pleasant atmosphere, feeling like at home.

What a wonderful memory – for the newlyweds and for the guests – to bring back home!
