Any wedding in the romantic setting of Tuscany is going to be beautiful, but these decadent winter wedding styling ideas at a nineteenth century villa in Lucca are pure and unadulterated sophistication. Stylist ilbiancoeilrosa used a colour palette of rich burgundy and petrol blue, the perfect choice for the surroundings.
With the magnificent venue as the main visual attraction, the styling is minimal but oh so elegant. Flowers form much of the styling with the use of white anemone with striking black centres, rich burgundy roses and ranunculus, dark green foliage and even the unusual inclusion of oak leaves. This concept really brings the outside into this magnificent Tuscan venue.
The florals give a real wow factor to the tablescape. Keeping it simple, vases of oak tree branches fall over the table adorned with candles, vintage china and glassware, and scattered with rose petals. This winter wedding styling is very romantic.
Whilst there are so many details I love about this shoot, I adore the bride’s style in particular. In keeping with the surroundings and romantic vibe, she wears a gorgeous ball gown wedding dress by the fabulous Gabriella Sposa, with lace bodice, full tulle skirt and intricate beading. Her hair and make-up, kept naturally simple, features statement dark lips to complement the burgundy colour palette.
From the decadent tablescape to the bridal style, you’ll find oodles of ideas for a wedding which is timeless and sophisticated. Photographers Beatrice and Alberto of Intimate Love Stories captured this gorgeous winter wedding styling so perfectly…
The Old World
“We wanted this winter wedding shoot to enhance the beauty of the Tuscan countryside and luxurious villas of the territory. A wonderful nineteenth century villa in Lucca, a beautifully restored village, was the perfect location. The styling details treated an environment that reflects the old world with a decadent touch.
“We chose a dark red and blue colour palette for the shoot, and decorate the table with beautiful ceramics and an impressive floral centrepiece.
“And for our couple… a refined lace dress with wide tulle skirt for her and a stylish dark suit for him. Artisan jewellery completed our bride’s look. The Villa Lenka garden and fish pond were the perfect background for photos of the bride and groom.”
