Jessica and Peter weren’t interested in a pre-packaged wedding for their destination celebration in Italy. Luckily, the pair found Italyweddings, who created the bespoke affair of their dreams at Borgo Bastia Creti. Breezy white details have never looked as romantic as they did against the lush venue grounds. We love that just a few small features elevated the whole look of Jessica and Peter’s day, including chic gold accents and Jessica’s glamorous lace Benjamin Roberts gown.
Jessica and Peter
Borgo Bastia Creti, Perugia, Italy
We both were very keen to make sure that even though we were getting married abroad we still had a wedding that was personal to us. Lots of wedding planners for destination weddings only offer package weddings and so we were really pleased when we found a wedding planner that offered bespoke and personal weddings. We wanted to ensure we got a say in everything to do with the wedding so we knew the end result would be exactly what we wanted!
There were so many memorable parts of the day, but one that sticks out was when we took a moment to be alone and just take everything in. It was great to look around and see all our friends and family having a great time, and the venue just looked fantastic. It was quite surreal to finally be at our wedding after a year of planning it.
If we had any advice for planning it would be to say exactly what you want during wedding meetings, and if possible show people ideas of things you like. It helps the wedding planner/florist etc as they feel confident they are doing along the right lines and you won’t have to spend time worrying that you won’t get what you have in mind. Apart from that, just try to enjoy the planning process! It can be great fun!
