Some people dream of a big wedding celebration that would fit for a king, with hundreds of guests and a sumptuous party that lasts for days. Others prefer the idea of an intimate wedding, where the only guests are the closest friends and family members and emotional details are what matters the most.
If you fit into this second group of people, read the story of Lucinda and Paul’s intimate wedding in Florence – and start dreaming of your very own special day…
Lucinda and Paul’s intimate wedding at Villa La Vedetta, Florence
Lucinda and Paul, a beautiful couple from Melbourne, Australia, had very clear ideas about their wedding celebration.
They wanted it to be cozy and warm: they were looking forward to spending it together as a couple and with the most important people of their lives – that’s why they decided to have an intimate wedding with only 12 guests.
The location was another relevant factor for the couple: they chose Villa La Vedetta, an elegant building of the Renaissance with a unique terrace that offers a 180° breathtaking view over Florence. That’s where the dinner took place: can you imagine how it feels like to taste delicious Italian food and wines in front of such an evocative view?
Lucinda and Paul picked Florence as a destination for their intimate wedding because they love the city and its historic, artsy and romantic atmosphere. They appreciate it so much that they wanted it to be pictured in their wedding photos: the main characters of the shooting, of course, were the newlyweds and their love for each other – but the city and its architecture were included as timeless and charming co-stars.
Emotions and location make a perfect intimate wedding
If you are starting to plan your own intimate wedding, just know that you don’t need that much to make it really unique…
Emotions are surely the main ingredient: the deep bond between you and your future spouse, the affection for your family and friends, the joy of celebrating such an important event together.
The location is also a crucial element: first of all you should choose a fascinating destination, like Florence, then a venue that is able to enhance the solemnity of the moment. If it also offers an astonishing view and is close to incredible places like San Miniato al Monte or Ponte Vecchio – just as Villa La Vedetta… then, you will have the intimate wedding you’ve been dreaming of, and a lot of amazing photographs to save the memory of it forever!
