We worked on this wedding for a whole year. Katia and Antonio had a very precise atmosphere in mind, they really wanted to bring the guests with them in a Circus of time past. The Victorian Era lent its style for clothes and the “freak show” circus, and then… they asked us to add a sprinkle of H.P. Lovecraft.
Daniela and I were ecstatic. We traded ideas back and forth (we even tried to have a real hot air balloon, but it would have blown the budget, and this time it wasn’t a real priority). Daniela started creating her centrepieces, the table plan, the tents. The bride didn’t want any flowers, so we used cogs and coloured sands, and little and big Cthulhus, and Daniela made dolls and assembled vintage trinkets found in chests of treasures. I worked with the spouses to put their story in every detail, from the dresses (Stardust Atelier is always a guarantee in these cases) to the symbolic ceremony, and even our outfits were made to fit.
The splendid restaurant worked with us, ensuring that we could have a personalized menu, with scones and tea and small sandwiches, and still have the true experience of the food here in Tuscany. We entertained the guests during the afternoon with games and candy floss and sweets and licorice, music during the dinner and a marvellous fire show at night. A window opened on the oniric dimension that Katia and Antonio wanted to show their guests!
