This afternoon we have something a bit different for you, as I take you off...
Happy Wednesday everyone, I don’t know about you, but this week is whizzing along at a super fast speed! How has it been for you? Today I am whisking you off to beautiful Italy for the glorious wedding of Garyl and Dil. The wedding is set in the most amazing venue (don’t you just love a wedding reception by a pool!) stunning flowers and the most gorgeous Italian backdrop! Andrea Antohi has done the honours with the photos and what a wonderful job he has done!
Garyl and Dil were married on 11th August 2017 at S.Michele in Fangesto, Apulia, Italy. ‘We loved this amazing spot and professionality of the people in the location, we had 70 guests and it took 6 months to plan.’
How they met
We were performing together in a dancing and acting show. We’ve been together for 10 years
It was during a company family day during a lucky draw in front of 2400 people, completely unexpected and definitely embarrassing.
How did you allocate your budget?
I’ve collected costs information about the selected venues and services and took a decision about the must have and the wish list at the end
Where did you splurge and where did you save?
I’ve splurged in the accommodations and saved on the florist options
How did you choose your photographer?
I made an online search for boho wedding photographer in the area and found and selected the best one in my opinion and according to the reviews.
I bought the dress in Turin in Idea Spose (it was a Pronovias wedding dress). The shoes are made in Spain (Barcelona) and were brought from there from a friend of mine (Castaner brand). The earrings were handmade by me
The suit was by the Italian stylist Corneliani bought in (Erzegonivaz Turin).
Theme or colour scheme
The theme was boho and the selected colours were pistachio green and old rose
English Rose and Lisiantus gypsophila
Flowers, balloons with silk ribbon, wooden signals, hay bales,
Local Italian Apulia Food
Was a layered boho cake found on Pinterest
A DJ and an amazing Taranta dance local performance
GET IMPRESSED Srl (Turin – Italy) merchandise company
Embroidery hoops with lace and bells handmade by my mum and gramma, handmade wedding favours and handmade earrings
The Taranta dance performance was definitely the party highlight
