First time the Astrid reached me out I was having a coffee and planning the last wedding of the season: she sent me an email inquiring for a help for her big wedding party who had to take place in a few months. I asked, ok , and how many people do you think will attend? ‘Quite a lot!-she replied- we’re going to have around 180 guests!’
‘Wow, wedding in Tuscany, big party, in a stunning Villa close to Siena, I like the idea!
She had already sorted some suppliers and I was happy to work with them as I knew them all: when the wedding day was coming we started to have a look to the weather forecasts and unfortunately they changed every day from sunny to rainy but luckily in the morning we finally had sun!
The bride got ready in a suite on the first floor of the Villa with all her bridesmaids: Sissi and Carmela were there taking pictures all the time to capture any moment.
Unfortunately a bit of rain started again while we were ready to get out with the bridesmaids but we waited and my assistants were quick enough to take off all pillows from the chairs! After a touching ceremony all the guests move to the garden area to take some pictures and then the dinner started.
It was a mix of Caribbean and tuscan food prepared for the guests by the chefs of Delizia Ricevimenti who were able to have it all ready despite the bad weather. After cutting the cake they decided to move to the swimming pool area where dancing and open bar started. Being the groom in the music business his best man was a famous singer Fuse ODG and as soon as the music started all the people were on the dance floor, from children to the olders! It was along day for us but a memorable day for them and I’m sure all the guests will remember the great party they had in the Villa Monteriggioni!
