Services Wedding Planning


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, and thus the Steampunk Circus was born!

Daniela and I were ecstatic, immediately on board.

We traded ideas back and forth, some more feasible than others. 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… we just shelved the idea for another occasion. Daniela started creating her centrepieces, the table plan, draped the tents covering the gaming areas and the tarot reader corner. 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 in close quarters with the spouses to put their story in every detail, the invites, the dresses (Stardust Atelier is always a guarantee in these cases), even the symbolic ceremony that mixed mathematics and The Nanny at the same time. Lastly we didn’t have any qualms in dressing to fit right in.

The splendid restaurant worked with us, ensuring that we could have a personalized menu. There were British scones and tea and small sandwiches, but also 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. The Steampunk Circus: an open window on the oniric dimension that Katia and Antonio wanted to show their guests!
