Planning an Autumn Wedding in Italy

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
— Albert Camus

They are celebrating their 'autumn wedding' bathed in the yellow warmth of autumn sunshine. 

Our story starts with an unusual protagonist: the pomegranate, full of sentimental value to us and symbol throughout history, and in almost every religion, of beliefs and desires, life and death, rebirth and eternal life, fertility and marriage, abundance and prosperity.

Their wedding day the big pomegranate tree  in the garden had lost its leaves and was drooping heavily with its magnificent display of crimson-red fruit.

The surrounding woods are adorned with a transient beauty and the lawns are carpeted in gold, scarlet and crimson leaves.

The palette for the décor and accessories goes from medium-red, pomegranate, vermilion red to a more intense ruby- red and crimson. These colours were applied to the floral arrangements composed of pink avalanche and iguana roses, hypericum berries, star chrysanthemums and red-oak leaves.

The delicate wedding dress fits in perfectly with the elegant authentic country scene.

The pomegranate is the recurrent element of the décor: it appears on the original water-colour invitations and place cards hand made by DreamOnWedding, on the festoons, on the centre-pieces and even on the wedding cake.

Welcome autumn!

Welcome Fall

Fall is one of the most popular times to plan a wedding Italy for many good reason!

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruin’d choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou seest the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west,
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed whereon it must expire
Consumed with that which it was nourish’d by.
This thou perceivest, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
— William Shakespeare

Choose classic blooms like roses and dahlias in reds, oranges and yellows.

How to find the perfect Wedding Photographer in Italy

Selecting a wedding photographer in Italy is an essential part of the planning process, as integral as choosing a venue or finding the perfect dress. Your photographs will be your most treasured wedding keepsake — you'll immediately post them on Facebook when your photographer gives them to you, and you'll look back at them 50 years from now, reminiscing about your vows, the kiss, and the first dance. Unlike the work of your other wedding vendors (music, flower arrangements, cake), photographs aren't things you can hear, smell, taste or even see at first—you don't really know what you're getting until after the fact.
