We’d like to think that ‘Cinderella’ were around today, she would likely skip the stiff organza and go instead for a softer, more delicate appeal. A bit of vintage lace with a soft cascading silk skirt, her hair in loose waves, or woven with a braid adorned with fresh flora. She steps out to a hushed whisper in a row of whispering cypress trees, nestled in the heart of Val d’Orcia. Or in an iconic spot like San Galgano Abbey, deep in the romantic Sienese countryside for an organic Tuscan wedding.
Tuscany remains one of the most popular areas in Europe to get married, which likely comes as no surprise. The diverse, wild landscape mingled with the pace of a simpler life remains a luring seductress for us all. It also is makes for the idyllic backdrop for a fun organic-styled wedding. Here the existing backdrop can be the main protaganist, many Tuscan villas come equipped with beautiful gardens, featuring original detailing that often goes back centuries. We propose a style that plays like a finely-tuned piano with the elements at hand, using a combination of white, creams, green and natural linens.
Depending on the season, you can make use of natural elements such as wild foliage, personalized lavender sachets, leafy centerpieces, fresh flowers on the wedding cake. Invitations too could remain simple, focusing more on the text and texture of the paper used. Which lends to the theme of natural beauty, using something as simple as eucalyptus wreaths on the bride and grooms chairs, or even around napkin rings. With the right help, your special day can take on an ethereal experience, one that no-one would soon forget.
