This styled shoot organized by wedding planner Laura Ferrari from La Weddy, will leave you daydreaming about your so much desired destination wedding in Italy and how beautiful it could be if celebrated in the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. The amazing location was Villa Curina Resort located just minutes from Sienna. The always amazing Couture Hayez inspired us with her gown to create the best atmosphere, not to mention the amazingly tasty and refined creations by Chef Giorgio Trovato. I will leave you with a text prepared by lovely Laura, Enjoy.
In autumn the soft hills of Chianti are painted with wonderful colors, showing breathtaking views that
will hardly leave you unimpressed. If you love the poetry and the almost unreal quietness of the
countryside and you dream of a wedding that is simple but refined at the same time, Villa Curina Resort
and its restaurant Il Convito di Curina, are, with no doubt, the ideal place to make it happen.…
Villa Curina Resort is a small sixteenth century village full of history and charm, awarded with 2 Michelin
Guide stars. Surrounded by the quiet of the Siena hills, here the silence and peace will take over you,
while being only 9 km from the city, Time would expand and immediately you will forget the hustle and
bustle of city life. This is a place that can turn your wedding into a wonderful party and a jolly time to share with friends
and family, while being pampered by the kindness of the resort personnel
but especially delighted by dishes of Executive Chef, Giorgio Trovato.
The Convito di Curina maintains indeed the spirit of Tuscany and its cuisine, keeping history and flavours
of the region’s culinary tradition revisited through the cultural blending and international experience of
Chef Trovato, who concocted the menu as “a sensory journey for the diner”
The restaurant’s terrace with a view over the hills of Siena is there to offer evocative landscapes and
spectacular sunset. What better location could we choose for this setup?
A mise en place recalls Chianti and its colours. A simple arrangement, nothing pretentious, yet rich and
sophisticated, that I recreated on the exterior of the location, making use of the colours and the
incredible light of a day in late September.
Just for the occasion, Florpassion created lavish and rich flower arrangements that mix burgundy and
plum shades to a more delicate and pretty pink colour. Branches of pink roses mottled with Pink Flash
and Fuchsia Glorius (Lady’s eardrops) are the core, around which the composition develops with ivory
Dahlias, dendrobium orchids, ivory Mini English roses, Lisianthus and ends with an exotic touch of chili
pepper and Nutans.
The stationary table cards are created by Marilou, using Burgundy cards matching with cotton white
paper. The handmade cut, matching the vine leaves on the placeholders and the grapes on the menu, is
a reference to the so famous Tuscan wines.
For a context so romantic and charming, where nature surrounds you in such pleasant way, Couture
Hayez created a country-chic dress, using the appeal of a soft plumetis fabric enhanced by light lace, a
preview of the new collection, which has been prepared at the Atelier in the past months. The talented
Make-up Artist Nicha oversaw the model’s hairstyle and makeup.
It was a real pleasure to be a guest of a staff delightfully professional as those of Villa Curina Resort, and
to learn all about the talent of Chef Giorgio Trovato, on top of working with the entire team that made
this possible, a team gathered in a dream setting for this occasion.
