When this Russian couple swooped up their guests for a fairytale castle wedding in Italy, it meant the adventure of a lifetime. Straight out of a classic storybook, Tatyana and Ruslan's wedding day was nothing short of old-world romance. Standing on the rocky hills of Tuscany, the majestic Castello di Vincigliata is a 13th century medieval castle that features a perfectly manicured courtyard garden that screams for a posh wedding day. Impeccable planning by The Tuscan Wedding team with floral by Vincenzo Dascanio gave this dream day a royal look of purple hues and silver accents on the tented grand terrace. Studiobonon Photography captured what will surely become treasured heirlooms for these lovebirds.
Fairytale Castle Wedding in Italy
A juxtaposition of decadent burgundy, shades of purple melded with neutral hues of cream and pale pinks merged seamlessly for an elegant feel throughout the ceremony and reception. Refined décor details from the ornate silver candle holders to the modern silver rimmed glassware and textured linens created an utterly classic ambience. Draped cream fabrics hung over the terrace with cascading greenery that complimented organic touches in each of the floral arrangements. On the first day guests arrived, Tatyana and Ruslan had a special dance as a part of the Russian celebration as members of the Greek Orthodox Church. This element added to the excitement of their wedding the next day. As they exchanged their "I Do's," a drone flew overhead for a unique and unforgettable perspective of the magic taking place in the castle's courtyard. During the reception, they involved a television presenter from Russia to play host for the evening which culminated in live music and entertainment by a comedian. Taking center stage was a heavenly tiered cake with six different layers decorated with delicate lace and flowers in the couple's theme colors of purple and silver. The adjective "beautiful" barely does this fairytale castle wedding in Italy justice. We, personally, fall in love repeatedly with each viewing.
