Dramatic Italian Real Wedding & Yolan Cris Bride: Agnese & James
Ever wondered what a real wedding planners wedding might look like? Well today I share the wedding of Agnese and James. Agnese is none other than an Italian wedding planner, splitting her time between London and the Amalfi Coast whist planning beautiful weddings for destination brides…
She chose a stunning, vintage inspired Yolan Cris wedding gown for her traditional Italian wedding and looked incredibly striking in her dramatic pre-wedding shoot.
Words by Agnese. Images by Joanne Dunn.
I chose my Yolan Cris wedding dress as it is a very unique dress with lots of wonderful details and a vintage feel. I wore it with a celebrity sposa veil and Rachel Simpson wedding shoes.
Our super incredible photographer was Joanne Dunn – creative and passionate, she captured all the drama and emotions of the day whilst making us feel relaxed at all times.
James wore a Ted Baker suit with Paul Baker cuff links.
My father gave me away…
James and I met in London – As I am Italian a friend suggested I do a language swap with an English guy she knew well. The rest is history.
The style of our wedding day had a vintage vibe with a slight travel theme. We had white rose centrepieces and vintage lace chair covers. For wedding favours we had small bottles of local limoncello made with Amalfi Coast lemons.
Attached to each bottle there was a lace bag containing 5 confetti almonds. The five wishes for the Bride and Groom are health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.
We chose our wedding venue on the Amalfi Coast because of the stunning coastal views and the food is fabulous! The people there are amazing and make you feel like one of the family.
If you could impart any words of wisdom to future brides planning their wedding days, what would they be?
If possible have someone to help with the wedding day itself so you can relax and enjoy the experience to the full.
What was your most memorable moment of the day?
Seeing everyone coming from all around the world to celebrate with us.
Loving those dramatic images by Joanne Dunn!
