“We honestly can’t thank you enough for capturing every part of our day so perfectly. I never imagined that our photos could look so amazing! Thank you!”

Tell us a little about your day…
Our day couldn’t have been more perfect! It was relaxed and so much fun! We felt so lucky to have all our family and friends to celebrate with us.

What was your fave part or moment from your day?
A moment we will never forget is when we had just walked back down the aisle after being married and were greeted by all the people we care about who were so happy for us. We also loved being able to share amazing food and have a drink in the most beautiful location!

From Chic Weddings Italy founder Eva;
“We had styled and designed the styled shoot which occurred in the beautiful property Conti di San Bonifacio in Tuscany while Figtree Wedding Photography captured all the beautiful details. Considering that this property has acted as the background scenario of several weddings, we wanted the shooting to be more authentic and trendy, showing the beauty of this private owned property and most of all we wanted the shooting to be different and more inspiring. We took inspiration from the private owned property and imagined the story of the daughter of the owner preparing and having fun in her home, before the wedding.

We wanted to liaise a connection between the Hamptons and the Italian Maremma, using white green and brown colours adding elements which could connect both areas such as a beautiful horse and the use of the linens belonging to the noble family for the details for the table setting. We took inspirations from the surroundings in Tuscany where you can find often many sheep, using sheep skins as table covers and chair’s covers; the additional elements such as the private owned cutlery, embroidered coat of arms in linen napkins, and additional elements were used in order to give the sense of a “ noble” family celebrating the wedding of the young daughter.

We had incorporated two vintage looks for the model, one standing by the pool and enjoying her magazines and another one in vintage tennis look as she was playing in her tennis court with her husband to be.

We then added the elegant elements such as a black dress and a black horse and the bridal dress adding all the elements to the dining table which could reassemble all the colours and the general mood.”
