Fairy Tale Wedding in Venice, Italy
Sharlene and Craig got married at the beautiful Villa La Vedetta in Venice! Set in elegant gardens of the renaissance Villa with a background of views of Florence, this was a truly romantic setting! We love Sharlene’s chic and modern bridal look, wearing a fabulous dress by Steven Khalil with stlish Yves Saint Laurent shoes and classic pearl earrings by Dior. Sharlene tells us more about their wedding;”The original plan was to get married in our home town Melbourne, Australia with a guest list of 120 people. With the venue booked, and plans unfolding, my Grandmother sadly lost her battle to cancer 9 months prior to our wedding date. With heavy hearts, we continued with the preparations, never anticipating losing my Grandfather 3 months later. With a giant void in my life, this great loss was enough for us to reassess what we truly believed our wedding should be. The decision was made to cut our losses and stay true to ourselves, to travel to a beautiful destination with our closest friends and family, and what place would be more meaningful than Florence.
On the day of my wedding, once I was dressed my mother handed me a ring my grandfather had given her, it was a pearl and topaz ring. This was my something old, borrowed and blue, along with a lace and pearl horse-shoe she had made for me for my something new.
Our honeymoon was spent on the Amalfi Coast, Isle of Capri, South of France, and the Greek Islands. This entire experience will always be the most vivid memory of our lives.”
