Keira Knightley got married in France this weekend – 4th May 2013.
Will her style be the start of simpler, shorter wedding dresses? and the return of tulle and champagne colours?
I quite like this relaxed look, and i think it is going to be the way forward for many couples.
The dress is very beautiful and stylish ( not white). His suit is informal but very crisp.
She has on simple jewellery, and daisy chain tiara and pink ballet pumps.
They certainly make it look effortless, and european destinations are very popular at the moment.
Perhaps the only thing i am unsure of are the sunglasses, but i am sure they were removed once they were in private.
Cherish has recently formed a link with an Italian wedding Company, specialising in weddings for overseas clients.
Below are pictures from the companies website,
They are experts in organizing weddings for groups of people (mainly coming from the UK and Ireland as well as USA, Canada) and these people can rent one of there 2 villas for one week: the rental goes from Saturday to Saturday and it is done in an exclusive manner meaning that only the wedding couple and their own guests will be staying on the property in that week. Although it is a self catering villa we are always there for our own guests whenever it is needed and our venue manager is there every day ready to help them out with useful information.
The ceremonies are normally fixed for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, civil or catholic ceremonies.
They are performed in the lovely town of Cortona, Tuscany (it is here also that part of the movies “Under the Tuscan Sun” were performed) which is extremely characteristic and charming for the ceremony.
The wedding planning is done through a very ingenious software called “8 steps tool” that allows brides to enjoy the wedding planning and at the same time keep all the wedding organization under control. Seeing that all the clients are coming from abroad they have thought about a safe way to organize everything from a distance. In fact many wedding couples have not even visited us prior to the wedding and have been extremely satisfied with our services.
Please give us a call for more information if you are interested in getting married in Italy and we will give you the details.
Whilst stranded at Luton airport last week because of the snow, I met several couples who were due to fly out to weekend weddings. It reminded me of a few tips for weddings abroad, namely make sure all key guests get out to the location on time.
- consider how many guests you will invite
- how accessible is travel to the location, and any cost implications
- send invitations early and ask for rsvp’s
- book extra insurance for luggage etc
- if possible visit the location prior to the day and check out transfers arrangements
- consider employing a destination wedding planner for advise
Somehow the snow seems very romantic, and just as we like it – can be lots of fun. Winter weddings offer opportunities to add many personal touches like sleigh rides under snuggly warm blankets, with warm mulled wine and plenty of mistletoe.
Destination weddings are great, one of the best I’ve attended was in Toledo. The wedding started at 7pm and went on until 6am in the morning. The spanish certainly know how to party, and it was definately a wedding to remember.
Please get in touch if you would like more help planning your perfect, dream wedding abroad, we have some lovely venue ideas.
