Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all well and happy and have had a productive week? Are you feeling festive yet? Have you got your tree up? Normally by now we would have our decorations up, but this year because of the building work on the house we have had to wait a couple more weeks. I am hoping we can get the decorations up next weekend, inside and out. This weekend we are hopefully going ice-skating (weather permitting) and also buying a few more decorations from our favourite Christmas decoration shop. On Sunday we are doing Christmas at Chatsworth, which will be very festive, I can’t wait! On with today’s wedding and it’s the turn of Maria and Sebastian who held their romantic wedding in Sicily, with the most gorgeous flowers and soft, elegant decoration. Big thanks to Simona Parisi of Brilliant Wedding for the lovely submission.
Maria and Sebastian were married on 4th September 2020, with the reception at Baglio Aversa in Sicily. ‘We loved the The immense magical atmosphere in nature, the essence of the tradition emanating from the environments and objects, the possibility of having a cozy and intimate space, the helpfulness and kindness of the owner Giovanni. We had 110 guests and it took one year to plan.’
How they met
We have been together since 2012 and met at work.
December 26, on the beach in front of the sea of my childhood. Simple but effective.
How did you allocate your budget
About half for the reception, the other half among flowers, photographer, wedding planner and the dress.
Where did you splurge and where did you save?
Saved on car rental, spent more than expected on flowers.
How did you choose your photographer?
Thanks to his philosophy of photography and his immense ability to capture real moments without resorting to pre-established poses.

Where did you go on your honeymoon?
The moment you zip your dress and you think ‘ok, that’s it’. When our eyes met at the end of the aisle, the descent of our entrance into the room with the joy and smiles of our friends and relatives, the fun and engaging dances.
Advice for other couples?
Have fun and enjoy the process and every single moment
The setting up of the flowers and the room was a wonderful surprise. Dreams had taken shape!
