Today on the blog I’m featuring a stunning destination wedding! Ruby and Greg tied the knot last August at the beautiful Lake Como in Italy. I was delighted to work closely with the couple to provide the personalised stationery from the save the dates to on the day stationery items and signage. What I loved the most about this wedding day was the couple planned everything in secret which created so much excitement on the day.
It’s not often a bride and her bridal party arrive to the ceremony by boat either! Guests were all transported by boat from the ceremony to the reception too. Lake Como properties are stunning and the couple worked with wedding planner I Do in Lake Como to create a sophisticated monochrome wedding style. Florist Barbara Botta provided elegant white roses, flowers with dark green stems and greenery for a classic and romantic look around the venue.
Wedding Breakfast Set Up
An alfresco wedding breakfast was set up with crisp white linen, wedding florals and greenery, fairy lights and candles, all to the backdrop of the gorgeous Lake Como surroundings.
Each guest place name was hand calligraphered in white on black card and cut into a circle for a contemporary look. Ruby and Greg chose to not have wedding favours and each table had a donation made to a different charity. The details of which I added to the guest place name.
I love personalising signage for on the wedding day. The couple chose a ‘time to party’ sign which I hand calligraphered in white on perspex, with a hand painted black watercolour background.
The table plan kept the cohesive monochrome style with touches of hand drawn calligraphy and was beautifully adorned with elegant white roses and greenery. So gorgeous!
To help guests cope with the heat of an Italian summer wedding the couple requested personalised fans which also had the order of service for the day for guests. I created a bespoke monogram of the couple’s initials and used black calligraphy on white paper for the monochrome colour palette.
Wedding Couple Styling
Bride Ruby looked incredible in her detailed bridal gown from the Marchesa for Pronovias collection. Accompanied with a veil also from Pronovias and Jimmy Choo shoes. Her hair was styled in an elegant low bun with a hair accessory from Liberty in Love. The bridesmaids all wore black to accompany the monochrome styling of the day. Groom Greg wore a jacket, shirt, trousers and bow tie all from Suit Supply.
Thank you Ruby and Greg for letting me be a part of your stunning wedding day. I loved working on their gorgeous Italian wedding and wish the couple all the best for the future. Here’s a couple more photos from their amazing destination wedding day….
