Middle eastern wedding in Tuscany

When we received Nadeen and Mustafa’s enquiry we got a bit surprised: We are interested in throwing our wedding in Tuscany this December…
It sounded unusual to organize a destination wedding in winter, and a Middle Eastern wedding in Tuscany was even stranger. Indeed the most couples love our summer warmth and the possibility to held everything outdoor. After speaking to them, it was clear that December wasn’t really the best period for the wedding they had in mind. It was natural to look at summer and to search for a venue that could blend, history, character, and a wow factor.

After a few calls a stunning castle a few steps away from Florence was booked, wedding date: July.

A few months later, the first visit was very exciting. Indeed there is always a little anxiety when a couple secures the venue without seeing it in person. Thei main worry was: Did we get the right place for our middle eastern wedding in Tuscany? It was love at first sight!
When the doors of the castle diclosed in front of Nadeen she almost cried. Any anxiety vanished and we enjoyed the rest of the meetings and planning tasks.

 

MOOD BOARD AND STYLE

Gold and burgundy elegance

In terms of wedding design, Nadeen & Mustafa wanted something simple and elegant with a made in Italy feel along with some Middle eastern touches.

The U shape table was perfect to welcome guests in a scenographic yet cosy mood. The centrepiece was a runner made of local olive branches and eucalyptus with white roses, the ultimate expression of elegance. Tall candelabras were scattered along the table with hundreds of tea lights all around. Everything was enriched by gold accessories: chargers, cutlery candeholders and event the ink of the stationery. Red shades were used as contrast colour to warm and enrich our palette: glasses and stationery were in a dark burgudny while a brighter tone was the background colour to emphasize the castle’s architecture.

The result was a magical, warm, joyful atmosphere made of great food and lot of fun with mix of the best world’s hit and traditional middle eastern music.

We cannot recommend Sara enough for all of her hard work.

We could not have asked for a better day! Sara and Pauline worked tirelessly, they gave personal attention to all aspects of our day – we started our “wedding journey” with them 12 months ago and I am so pleased that we chose them.
