Villa Fontallerta, a historic private residence overlooking Florence
Nothing speaks serenity, elegance and tranquility louder than a date of exchanging vows at Villa Fontallerta with a subtle backdrop of the Florence’s iconic landscape. This would be true for many couples without the exception of Floris and Pauline on August 29th, 2015. That fateful day was nothing short of a real-life fairy tale, a reminder of the wedding in Sorrento two years back, where Floris was the best man of the groom.
Elegant yet vintage villa!
The wedding in Tuscany was a beautiful setting at the Villa Fontallerta where Floris’ parents had spent time in parts of the elegant yet vintage villa. This knowledge of the venue added a dimension of warmth and assurance to the already warm and smooth event that had been planned by “Glam Events in Tuscany” . “Glam Events in Tuscany” made Floris and Pauline’s dreams come to reality with the choice of maintaining the rural setting – a spark of the olden days made it more than relaxed for the guests and the wedding couple to fully absorb the lush Tuscany atmosphere. Compliments to the Flower Designer “II Giardino Delle Fate” for the captivating flower arrangements and a unique splash of colour and fragrances, compliments for creating Stunning Table Settings for this Outdoor Wedding in Tuscany. Thank you as well as the Light Designer “Gb Audio” for the nice transition from day event to the evening party. The efforts of the Wedding Planner sustained the vibrant atmosphere as the day rolled on.
How the wedding in Florence oozed culture and emotion just like the city itself! From the vows that were exchanged under cover of the bright and shady and whispering woods, to the emotion-filled ambiance of the speeches given by friends, to the sweet tears that followed the speeches, this celebration was truly one never to miss. The outdoor wedding reception was held at Villa Fontallerta, Florence. Here it has been particularly unique for Floris and Pauline as they got to experience a touch of Italian cuisine into their Belgian and French backgrounds respectively. The aperitif in the swimming pool garden was magical thanks to the Catering Team “Galateo Ricevimenti” for adding colour and adventure through the flavour; aroma and taste of the food served. Villa Fontallerta was simply the best with:-
- A magical swimming pool garden
- Beautifully tropical gardens
- Best reception with lovely responsive themes
Nothing could capture the cocktail of dance, smiles, cries and dripping love better than the lens of wedding photographer Florence. Together with the elegant light and flower design, the photo session did not just turn out to a record of another event at Villa Fontallerta, it was engraving of life and culture of the Tuscany region into the memories of the guests and, more importantly, Floris and Pauline. Villa Fontallerta remains not only vintage throwback to a post-modern world, but it is also a world of joyful emotion and overwhelming memories, a part of life that holds on to you in just the right places, just like an Italian suit!
