Combination of UK and Italy means one thing – good party! Samantha and Leo lives in Prague, althought Samantha has been travelling a lot – she is writing very good blog The Wandering Wanderluster, so traveling is part of their life.
Couple loves St. Peter and Paul´s cathedral in Vysehrad and because Samantha was baptised at St. Tomas church, they kindly asked father William to perform their ceremony.
Reception venue was also pretty easy, they falled in love with Villa Richter, its charm and view and because they wanted privacy, hired Villa and the vineyard for exclusive use. We just closed the doors and noone disturbed us :-).
Bride came to Villa in the morning to get ready together with bridesmaid and mum, while goom stayed at home. Photographer and cameraman started nearby Vysehrad, where the couple lives and after few shots with groom they moved to Villa Richter and stayed with bride. Samantha looked stunning in her gown…
All the guests made their own way to Vysehrad, groom walked from their apartment and bride was escorted by historical Bentley.
Ceremony was really pretty, made us all cry. Organs were accompanied by trumpet and clasiscal trio, bride had special requests for the songs , so guests could enjoy really nice music.
Group and some family photos were done at the church and short after buses escorted guests to Villa Richter, while newlyweds enjoyed private photo and video session. After one hour joined guests at the vineyard for a glass of Prosecco.
Leo is from Sicily, so the decor was italian – Samantha made lovely decorated wine bottles as table numbers, we used fresh lemons instead of traditional name cards and yellow colour and olive branches were used in all decorations.
Also dinner came in traditional italian style – primi i secondi piatti – first and second starter, second was pasta, followed by main course. Couple invited a few guests for the evening, they joined us for the cake cutting. We didn´t have only one, but a few wedding cakes – traditioal english cake done by friend of the couple, traditional italian cake made by italian bakery, small english cake and also gluten free cake.
After cake was already time for dancing, we all moved to upper floor, wherre the DJ was already prepared. Lots of cocktail, wine and Prosecco followed by sweet bar, late snack and party finished late at night.
Samantha and Leo, it was my big pleasure to meet you, thank you so much for beautiful scarf that matches my new Vespa perfectly and looking forward to meet you soon again!
