Marta & Alvaro's Italian Wedding

Posted on 25 Oct, 2016
Marta & Alvaro's Italian Wedding

Background

How did you meet your (now) husband? We met in a Pub in Covent Garden (London UK) where we were both studying and working. It was July 18th 2012 and it was a beautiful evening. We were both having a fun summer without thinking about relationships. We met and after few lovely weeks we separated for the rest of the summer…when we met again in September we had it clear we wanted to be together.

Do you have a proposal story? He proposed in South of France in my family home. I wanted to marry him so much then when he proposed I got angry cause I thought he was joking.

The Wedding

What was your wedding date? 25/06/16

Location (Ceremony and Reception)

Where? Ceremony: In my home town Brescia (Italy). Auditorium Santa Giulia. Reception: Areadocks Brescia (Italy)

What made you choose there?  I always dreamt of a garden wedding but the weather didn’t collaborate so an outside wedding was out of the question... We picked a completely different location with a fresh modern and industrial design and we filled it with flowers, candles, and vintage elements.

 

Wedding Gown (the most important part!)

What made you decide to come into Karen Willis Holmes?  I was living in London and every Sunday I used to take a walk in a little alley where I spotted a lovely little bridal boutique “Angelica Bridal”.

After trying on many gowns and looking for a completely different style I went to this little boutique and as a joke I decide to try the biggest gown in the store…and I fell in love with the 'Selena' Gown.

What did you especially like about your gown? The movement, the color, the material and the lightness… I can’t believe I thought this style wasn’t for me. I could wear it again and again. Perfection!
