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.

The table is set with antique plates in crimson and Liberty style cutlery. The antique tables and chairs are covered in bordeaux velvet.

Welcome autumn!

Wedding Micol + Daniele

Micol and Daniele, both Italians, celebrated their wedding in Santa Maria Degli Angeli, a suburb of Assisi

The whole Umbria region, but especially the area surrounding Assisi, has a great religious and spiritual tradition, due to the connection with history and life of St. Francis.

Santa Maria degli Angeli hosts a variety of anecdotes related to the Saint. For instance, here is found the thornless rose garden where he rolled, naked, in an attempt to overcome temptation.

Micol and Daniele know each other since they were children: their love is deep and long lasting and their wedding has a great spiritual meaning. That's why they have chosen such a spiritual place to celebrate it.

The ceremony took place at the church of the nuns Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (Chiesa delle Suore Bianche). Its entrance is very simple, while its interior is enriched with frescos portraying scenes of Christ's life.

This is a very sweet part of the celebration: after the Elevation, the groom (instead of the priest) gives the Host and the Chalice to the bride, and vice versa.

After the ceremony, the couple took advantage of the late-afternoon light, very warm in summertime.

The bride told: "On leaving the Church, the sunlight became an active part of the whole organisation and it seemed as though dancing sun rays appeared from behind an invisible back-drop, filling the hearts of everyone with love and joy."

They've had their portraits taken in the nuns garden, a place they are very fond to.

On the background, you can recognize the majestic Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli and its dome.

I love this light and feeling. Thanks a lot to Micol and Daniele for sharing their experience and their love with us.
