Enchanted Forest Wedding Love Banquet

The Story:  Matteo and Federica did not want an ordinary wedding. They wanted something elegant, unique and unforgettable. This Roman couple engaged wedding planner, Eleonora Panetta, to organise their dream wedding to celebrate and declare their love. 

The Location: This wedding took place in the forest on the Tenuta Tresca estate in the heart of Puglia. This venue is perfect for nature lovers with its olive trees, oak grove and surrounding forest. Tenuta Tresca is a magical treasure trove filled with nature’s bounty ideal for fairytale weddings.

The Vibe:  An enchanted fête in the forest. This wedding went all out to create so many unique and unforgettable moments. Filled with festivities and fireworks, the celebration was all about having a good time in the name of love. String lights and candlelight were used throughout the venue for a magical and romantic vibe. 

The Details: The LOVE banquet table set-up consisted of four different table configurations which were used to spell out the word “LOVE” (each table representing one letter) when viewed from the night sky, with the “L” forming the main banquet table. The tables were adorned with candles which created a soft and enchanting vibe completing the fairytale effect under the gentle moonlight. Organic wood and greenery were used throughout to emphasise the feeling of being immersed in nature.


  • A statement centrepiece like the LOVE table takes time to plan and a skillful team to execute. It can also act as a centre for your theme.
  • If you are thinking about any feature elements that need to be photographed from the sky, remember to keep this in mind when hiring a photographer. You will want to hire someone who is experienced in drone photography and has the necessary equipment.
  • If you are considering a nature or greenery themed wedding, be thoughtful about using sustainable and eco-friendly elements to avoid coming off as disingenuous.
