Tuscan Hillside Wedding at Villa Le Fontanelle
It’s so nice to add a little sunshine to the week with this beautiful real wedding in Tuscany! Nikita and David married at the hillside venue of Villa Le Fontanelle with such incredible views of the countryside and historic Florence which they could enjoy all day and this setting made such a dreamy feature for the wedding too! Their ceremony was so romantic, taking place in the shade of trees in the Villa’s beautiful grounds and beside a small traditional church.
Daniela, the planner at The Tuscan Wedding, tells us more about Nikita + David’s wedding day – “In loving memory of the bride’s mother and others, Nikita prepared a chair with a signboard reserving the space to honour those guests who could not be there on this special day.
The beautiful Nikita wore a flowy a-line dress with a delicately embroidered top by Watters, while her bridesmaids dresses came from American wedding retailer, David’s Bridal. They each wore gowns in varying shades of lavender and lilac that came in halter, v and sweetheart necklines and flowing skirts; they carried simple bouquets of baby’s breath. Meanwhile, David’s French Connection navy suit was decorated with a simple lavender tie while his groomsmen wore navy slacks, white shirts, blue suspenders and fashionable lavender bow ties. The remainder of the wedding’s decor followed the lavender and lilac themes, with flowers that seemed to be spilling over every surface. The ambience suggested all the airs of a sophisticated garden party shared amongst the closest of family and friends. Held outdoors, just in front of the villa, the dinner and reception overlooked the Tuscan hills and city of Florence.
The couple opted for the traditional Italian wedding cake for the dessert, a millefeuille cake layered with creme and topped with mixed berries, which is made in front of the guests. This style of cake-cutting is always a special touch and a crowd pleaser. Music was one of the most important elements of this stunning wedding, the electric violin accompanied Nikita down the aisle, while the post-dinner party was celebrated with a DJ and saxophone combination.”
