Lavish Persian wedding in Chianti


Lavish Persian wedding in Chianti

When the bride-to-be Samira contacted me with her wedding project with still very few ideas and expectations, the only thing she was consciously clear of was how “international” her wedding would have to be. And she was totally right!

You could have counted many countries around the world from where guests of Samira & Nicolai where coming from: Emirates, China, Sweden, Us, Iran, UK, Germany, Oman, Spain and many more. That was a truly good start of the incredible journey their wedding had been having such an international couple: a beautiful woman born in Iran, grown up in Sweden and living in Dubai and a handsome man with Chinese-Brasilian-Sweden heritages living in Dubai. Two of the most determined, clever and driven minded persons I have ever met.

The organization has been focused on guests experience, from the best selection of caterer and menu, to the best musical mood and for sure the most beautiful venue an Iranian bride can hope for to find in Tuscany, Antica Fattoria di Paterno, with its Iranian carpets, luxurious furniture and breathtaking panoramas on the Chianti, it was everything Samira could ever wish for.

It has been a quite complex event having three different ceremonies to be held at the venue: a religious blessing, a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and the so famous and spectacular Sofreh Aghd Persian ceremony, with various music soundtracks to enjoy the special moments that thanks to the excellent work of my professional DJ have resulted in a smooth process.

The dinner has been held in the hidden garden of the venue with a E shape table with elegant silver candelabras and some classy and wild flowers to enrich the style of the reception. As per Sweden tradition we had numerous speeches, around 27, and the dinner was superbly executed by the executive chef throughout the meticulous timeline we have created.

The party during the night has been spectacular with the American bar open on the main panoramic terrace while Iranian and Eastern music filled the air until late night.

Persian Wedding in Italy


Persian wedding in Italy

Whenever a couple starts to wonder who a destination wedding in Italy would be they usually never fantasize to have multiple venues to celebrate it, but sometimes fantasies do come true and Ellie & Ben had quite clear ideas on this, they wanted to get the best out of their wedding day, let their guests experience the best of Florence and have a relaxed and warm fun with everyone.

That’s why they decided first of all Hotel Villa Olmi as their preparation and wedding reception venue: a luxury hotel with a very relaxed and cozy atmosphere to enjoy with the wedding group on a hot sunny summer day of the beginning of September. This venue is special being not inside the more hectic historical center of Florence, immersed in acres of green and far away from the “traffic jungle” allows every event to be a blissful success. After a joyful getting ready moment with her sister and bridesmaids and with a very chic and 50s style type of look, the bride-to-be headed to Palazzo Vecchio, the City Hall building of Florence, with a grandiose creamy Excalibur vintage car , to get finally married to his best friend and lovely compassion Ben inside the amazing Sala Rossa (Red Room) that leaves everyone speechless for its beauty and uniqueness.

Being Ben of Scottish origin , the great surprise Ellie prepared for him was to have the music of a Scottish bagpiper to escort them after the ceremony along with all their guests to the second venue of their wedding day, the charming and exclusive Hotel Brunelleschi , just few minutes away from Palazzo Vecchio, where a light lunch had been served in beautiful living rooms and at the open-air bistro to get everyone refreshed and pampered on this long day celebrating their love.

Late afternoon was time to transfer all the happy group and the adorable bride & groom back to the reception venue where a soft music from a harp and a very rich aperitifs buffet welcomed them all.

The dinner was held in the private porch garden of the Villa decorated for the occasion with fresh violet and green flowers, colors that Ellie adores, where also the wedding Italian fresh expressly made cake had been cut.

Few more drinks and all the party moved to Piazzale Michelangelo for a last drink together with the romantic panorama of Florence at their feet.
