Sofie and Martin, who I knew when they both lived in Australia, decided to have a symbolic ceremony for their family and friends in the gorgeous Sienese countryside. Sofie, an interior designer from Germany and Martin a German Import Manager from Canada wanted to share their magical union with loved ones in the idyllic village of Borgo Sant’Ambrogio where the rustic ambiance and grand views of the countryside are beyond compare. What better place than Tuscany to celebrate the best day of their lives while giving their guests a chance for a holiday filled with joyful memories together.

Borgo Sant’Ambrogio is a quaint village which Sofie and Martin fell in love on first sight. The Sienese countryside borgo is like taking a step back in time with a beautiful and distinctive courtyard of the stately home with a lovely church once used by the farmers who worked in the nearby lands in the village. It is resplendent with charm and ambiance!

The bride wanted to create an atmosphere of simple elegance that shone through in every detail using the backdrop of terracotta and olive green as the canvas while adding color with the most gentle of strokes.

The bride made herself ready in Bagno Vignoni at Hotel Adler famous for its thermal waters.

The symbolic ceremony was held on the roof garden in the shade of ancient trees. We brought in floral arrangements with hints of burgundy and lavender to highlight the couple and compliment the lush surroundings. Sofia chose a small bouquet with exquisite yet simple flowers whose beautiful color created an impact.

The reception dining consisted of two long tables in the imperial court of the village. As the sun set, the court turned into a uniquely magical place with perfectly placed lighting consisting of strings of bare bulbs and architectural illumination on the walls.

What is a celebratory dinner without dancing! The village square was arranged with DJ and singer setting the mood with the first dance.

The palette: Burgundy, white, olive green and lavender consisting of marvelous, soft compositions that complimented the rustic and romantic venue.
