Simple & Chic English Wedding in Montepulciano

26 september 2018

A lovely couple from London, an enchanted villa in the heart of Tuscany, a gorgeous day in June: these are the ingredients for the elegant wedding that united Anisa and Crispin, a couple who wanted to bring together their closest friends and relatives from England and Hong Kong in an iconic location.
They chose Villa Cicolina, just outside Montepulciano, which offers an extraordinary natural setting for the ceremony celebrated in front of the travertine infinity pool underneath the century-old olive trees in the garden. 

Anisa, splendid in her gown and with a cascading bouquet created by the florist Luca Cozza, and Crispin, very elegant in his cobalt blue suit, exchanged their vows in a touching ceremony celebrated by Crispin’s sister. The beautiful photos of the day are by the international photographers Jacob and Pauline.
The guests then enjoyed a long aperitif in the garden with cocktails and Italian bubbles paired with a very rich selection of cold meats, cheese and deep-fried treats from the different show-cooking stations, by Sciamannini Ricevimenti. In the background, the soothing notes of the Florence Jazz Band.
For dinner, they chose round tables with light grey linen tablecloths and white Chiavarina chairs in the olive grove: a simple and chic style where the green of the olive trees and aromatic herbs was the feature colour with touches of lavender and gold.
The cutting of the cake, a classic Millefeuille prepared right in front of the guests, was triumphantly accompanied by the aria "Nessun Dorma" sung by Andrea Bocelli, a singer that the groom really enjoys. Afterwards a spectacular first dance gave a start to the party that went on until the early hours of the morning.
