Today we’re travelling to the outskirts of Rome, where stands the ancient village of Tragliata. Lindsay and Michael tied the knot in a 17th century Catholic monastery here, in a dreamy flower-filled destination wedding weekend amid the wheat fields and blue skies of the Italian peninsula.
The couple worked with European floral designer, Mary Lennox, who showcased our blousy blush roses Keira and Purity along with our cream rose Leonora with textural local foliage and herbs to create a stunning organic look that we’re head over heels for. If you’re dreaming of the perfect blush wedding bouquet, you’re in for a treat!
Italian Destination Wedding of Dreams
As a professional wedding planner and owner of House of Hannah Events in Ireland, bride Lindsey certainly didn’t want her wedding day to feel like work. A destination wedding weekend on this organic farm in Italy seemed like the perfect solution, allowing her to totally relax and spend quality time with her new husband and their guests.
Lindsay and Michael booked the entire village of Tragliata for their three-day event, which allowed most of their 200 guests to stay on-site. Some 22 musicians serenaded the loved-up duo in the chapel, a super special touch for the couple who are musicians themselves.
Perfect Blush Bridal Bouquet
Bride Lindsey chose David Austin’s Keira, our beautiful fluffy blush rose that brings the lightest dusting of pink to her free-form bridal bouquet. The natural variety of tones, ranging from pale buttercream to rosy marshmallow add depth and character to the bouquet, while the wayward rich green foliage and aromantic rosemary gives a gorgeous organic feel. To accompany Keira, Lindsey added roses Purity and Leonora to achieve a beautiful soft pastel colour palette.
The bouquet perfectly complements Lindsey’s elegant gown from Australian bridal designer, Paolo Sebastian. The sheer long-sleeves, embroidered bodice and flowing chiffon shirt with a subtle thigh split was an ideal choice for the rustic Italian setting. Simple, chic and timeless. Lindsey finished her bridal look with an exquisite veil originally made for her first communion by her precious nana, who is also the namesake for her business.
Blush and Cream Rose Bridesmaids Bouquets
Lindsey’s bridesmaids wore pale blush dresses from Amsale with an assortment of different neck styles. They carried natural posies in a similar style to the bridal bouquet: a clutch of blush and cream roses surrounded by verdant foliage and tied with steel blue ribbon. The cute young flower girls wore delicate crowns of olive foliage and simple white dresses.
The pretty understated looks perfectly complemented the historic surroundings of cobbled streets, old stone buildings and ancient olive groves. Italian destination wedding perfection!
