I have left the couple to enjoy their honeymoon in Boracay, the Philippines, after their wedding on the beach. However, Valentina and Daniele were certainly not easy to please. Since the seaside wedding was quite intimate, they thought why not share the joy of a garden ceremony with the ones couldn’t make the big day?
Therefore, they came to the decision to have a new wedding, in front of family members and friends who couldn’t celebrate with them in person in the Philippines. The place that has been chosen for the new wedding is completely different to the first, seaside location. Villa Bernardini hosted the spouses and their guests during the whole event, from the ceremony to the cake cutting, and the memorable first dance.
The civil wedding took place on a hot afternoon of July, in the central garden facing the grand facade of the villa. White chairs contrasted with the green grass, fresh flowers filled the setting, and many many tears were shed! Rose petals and confetti were thrown while the couple walked down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife.
The couple’s portraits had been taken in the garden, while the guests enjoyed the aperitifs in the backyard.
Villa Bernardini is one of the most suitable places to host a wedding in Tuscany. Just a few miles outside of Lucca, it provides a chance to enjoy a unique experience, and to avoid having to move to a different location during the day.
The municipality of Lucca celebrates civil weddings in the big garden; once done, you can toast families and friends with cocktails before heading straight into the villa for the evening.
The dinner is usually hosted in the conservatory, which is contained by a stunning glass roof to enjoy views of the sky and sunset, while the old lights paint everything else in yellow as the night draws darker.
Thanks to the roof, the Villa is perfect even in the case of rain: the first dance and the cake cutting can take place in the elegant adjacent limonaia, adorned with climber plants on the walls.
