Villa Cora is one of the most luxurious and exclusive hotels in Florence. Organising a Villa Cora wedding is a daydream. The large baroque halls, the elegant rooms in Florentine style and the Italian garden are some of the major pros of this magnificent and antique Italian Villa.
This couple decided to crown their dream of love right here. Villa Cora was the undisputed star of the three-day marriage with Indian ritual. Hundreds of guests from around the world gathered in Florence to celebrate the union of this delightful Swiss couple.
The bride and the groom got dressed up in their rooms in the villa. The celebration took place at the Hotel Westin Excelsior, in the centre of Florence. There could be no better place for the photo shoot! I took the couple’s portraits in the most impressive spots of the city centre and the surrounding hills. Also, I made some romantic shots with the Bentley that the couple had rented for the occasion.
They wore traditional Indian clothes for the first part of their Villa Cora Wedding. Subsequently, she wore a beautiful gown by Jenny Packham and he a midnight-blue suit that made him extremely elegant. The bride has a genuine passion for shoes, and it was clear: for the ceremony she wore a pair of pink Dolce & Gabbana shoes, for the reception a pair of silver Louboutin.
The first part of the reception took place in the Italian garden of the villa. During a delicious cocktail, some dancers entertained the guests with traditional Indian dances. Dinner was served in the Hall of Mirrors. Before going down to the Pasha nightclub, the newlyweds cut the wedding cake lit by fireworks. A fairytale ending for a wedding to remember for a long time.
A big thank you to the wedding coordinators, Sandra and Sara of Il Bianco e Il Rosa, for the fabulous setting of the entire event. It is thanks to them if the photos below have come out so well!
