Destination Wedding in Italy

How dreamy would it be to have a destination wedding in Italy? Especially in a romantic castle hidden among the breathtaking hills of Fiesole, overlooking Florence. Sounds like a dream come true to us, luckily it was the real deal for Ireny & Andrew.

You may think personalizing a destination wedding would be a difficult feat. It probably is, but these guys pulled it off. And then some. Another thing may be convincing your guests to come all that way. Though I don’t think these guests needed much convincing … All of this from London Wedding Photographer Ed Peers.

Ireny spent many months crafting and stuffing personalized fabric hearts that were used to decorate the venue and then were given away as favors to the guests. The color scheme focused on different shades of pink with peonies being the main blossom. Watermelon Martini was offered at the aperitif and then jars of the same cocktail were placed on tables for guests to sip before and during dinner. Hearts of different shapes and materials hanged from trees, the castle gates, lamp-posts, creating a very romantic and fairytale ambiance.

  9. Very beautiful! The hearts must have been such a labour of love, but they they are so pretty and such a lovely gift for guests!

    Can I ask if the venue required that you bring in Port-a-potties? Whenever I see a beautiful outdoors wedding these days, I think Port-a-potties. :/

  11. Mmm, Ed knows how to shoot a wedding. We’re fans of each other’s work, though we’ve never met in person. We’d love the chance to shoot a rustic destination wedding; there’s just something different about flying halfway around the world to work with a couple that trusts you to take care of them on the most important day of their lives.
