7 great ideas for a bridesmaids party in TuscanyWedding in Italy

Фото: Muravnik photography// Текст и идеи: Lidia Davidova — lavitatoscana.it

Здесь, среди виноградников и кипарисных дорог, бархатных долин и живописных холмам вино течёт реками, прошутто нарезают ломтями, а сыры подают головками. Поэтому винно-гастрономическую программу я вам не предлагаю, в Тоскане это самим собой разумеющееся.

А вот идеями, как сделать ваш девичник незабываемым, поделюсь с радостью!

Muravnik-bridesmaids-party-in-italy-1

1. Come principessa. Как принцесса

Станьте принцессой и пусть у вас будут и свита, и кучер, и личный повар, и фрейлины, и даже звездочет. Поселитесь не где-то, а в замке. Замков в Тоскане, благодаря славному прошлому, немало. Например, Castello di Velona  с сумасшедшими видами и роскошными декорациями. И пуститесь во все тяжкие!

Пусть вам готовит местный шеф-повар, и возможно, приносит первое, второе, третье прямо в покои. Пусть возит вас личный водитель, вы же будете пить вино, вам нельзя за руль:) Пусть к вам приедет учитель танцев, в замок или даже личный астроном из местного Планетария, который научит разбираться в звездах. Под звездным небом Тосканы, это же сказка! А еще вы можете полетать на вертолете и наблюдать всю красу Возрождения и Средневековья, как на ладони.

И если уж гулять на широкую ногу, но можно вообще весь борго занять (борго – средневековое поселения с церковью, крепостными стенами, домами, главной площадью). Например тот, где отдыхал Обама – Borgo Finocchieto.

2. Un’avventura. Приключение

Я точно знаю, что среди вас есть авантюристки! Для любителей приключения у меня есть несколько идей.

Довериться опытному шкиперу и отправится на парусной лодке бороздить Тирренское море. Обогнуть Тосканский архипелаг. Побывать на острове Эльба, на острове Джильо и возможно заехать на миниатюрный остров Горгона. И не просто заехать, а продегустировать редкое белое вино. Его делают заключенные (да, да, там есть тюрьма) из винограда крохотного виноградника в один гектар. Проект винодельческой компании Фрескобальди. Только вот запрашивать пропуск на остров следует заранее.

Еcли вас больше, чем шесть человек, то лодку лучше арендовать попросторней, от 12 метров, а для полного комфорта брать не только шкипера, но и личного повара, который будет следить, чтобы бокалы и тарелки были всегда полными:)

Если море не ваша стихия, то можно поколесить по самым панорамным точкам Тосканы на итальянских мотороллерах Веспа или винтажных машинках Фиат.

3. Qualcosa autentico. Что-то аутентичное

Поселиться в сельском агротуризме в период сбора винограда или оливок и….устроить соревнования:) Кто первый наполнит свой мешок оливками или виноградом.

Или отправиться на охоту за трюфелем и разбиться на команды:) Кто первый найдет ценный гриб! Вернее так: чья собака найдет трюфель первыми. Потому что охотиться за трюфелем собака. А за белым трюфелем можно даже пойти с четырьмя собаками!

Только учтите, что у таких гастрономических забав есть своя сезонность. Так, виноград собирают в сентябре. Оливки в октябре, а сезон самого ценного белого трюфеля — с сентября по декабрь.

4. Farsi belle. Прихорошиться

А можно устроить настоящий праздник для лица и тела. Отправиться в один из лучших СПА отелей Тосканы. Вроде Spa Resort Hotel ADLER  или в шикарный Fonteverde. Оба в чудесной Долине Орча.

Понежиться в местном СПА и организовать себе бьюти-день с массажем и разными приятностями для лица. К вам даже может приехать личный бьюти-коуч, показать полезные практики для лица и рассказать важные секреты бьюти-омоложения.

Три дня такого мини бьюти-ретрита и на свадьбе вы будете не то что блистать, а искрится!

Muravnik-bridesmaids-party-in-italy-4

5. La caccia al tesoro. Городской квест

Для барышень, влюбленных в культуру и историю, можно устроить городской квест.

Тосканские борго – идеальные места для таких приключений. Все эти улочки-лабиринты, подземелья, башки, крепости таят в себе столько легенд и загадок! Например, Лукка. Чем не город-квест. Кто первым найдет символ на стене церкви, какое слово олицетворяет суть города, найти секретный вход, отыскать дом с волшебным колодцем.

6. Musicale. Музыкальный

Если ваша компания любит музыку, то можно подгадать девичник под какое-нибудь музыкальное событие. Летом в Тоскане проходят потрясающие музыкальные мероприятия в красивейших тосканских местах. Например, фестиваль Пуччини на озере Торре Дель Лаго (Torre del Lago) или волшебные концерты в Аббатство Сан-Гальгано. 
Собор без крыши, знаменит камнем с торчащим в нем мечом. Место невероятное. Среди тосканских полей и долин. Так вот каждый август здесь проходят концерты. Бах под звездным небом, представляете?

7. Arte. Искусство

Просто девичник во Флоренцию – скучно? А если это костюмированные походы по музеям, то совсем другое дело. Можно, например, отправиться на экскурсию по Палаццо Веккьо. Пусть расскажет о богатой истории Возрождения не кто-то, а сам Вазари. Такие великолепные экскурсии на итальянском и английских языках с переодетым искусствоведом проводит Ассоциация Muse. Есть, кстати и для детей. Ну это так, на будущее:) Если захотите вернуться во Флоренцию уже с семьей.

Именно поэтому Тоскана хороша. Сюда можно приехать и на девичник, и на празднование свадьбы, и в медовый месяц, а потом еще и в семейный отпуск!

Best wedding villas on Como lake, Italy | blog post at Muravnik.comVilla Balbianello, Balbiano, Pizzo, D'Este, Erba, Sola Cabiati

While planning destination wedding, many couples choose the European villas for their day. First, they can make the ceremony, the photoshoot and wedding party at the same place. Secondly, they can make the accomodation for all the family and friends on the villa or nearby. And last, but not the least, the European villas are the ideal venue for wedding:  impeccable interiors, luxurious gardens and parks, magnificent views and exclusive service.

We decided to share our experience and opinion about the most beautiful wedding locations in Europe and we begin with venues on the Como lake, Italy. Margarita Casati, planner of the exclusive weddings in Italy, in particular on Como, shared with us her organisation experience on these villas. — margaritacasati.it 

Задумываясь о проведении свадьбы за границей многие пары выбирают для себя европейские виллы. Во-первых, это удобно тем, что церемонию, банкет и фотосессию можно провести в одном месте. Во-вторых, всех близких зачастую можно разместить на вилле или в непосредственной близости от нее. В-третьих, европейские виллы очень подходят для проведения торжества: безупречные интерьеры, роскошные сады и парки, великолепные виды и безукоризненный сервис.

Серию постов о самых красивых свадебных площадках Европы мы начинаем с востребованного направления — озера Комо в Италии.

Экспертным мнением об особенностях проведения мероприятия на каждой вилле поделилась Маргарита Казати, специалист по организации эксклюзивных свадеб в Италии, в частности на озере Комо — margaritacasati.it

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-Balbianello

Villa Balbianello

Dream of many couples is to have a wedding at Villa Balbianello. This is a place of stunning beauty, unique in its location and design. 

Villa is known for its park with a unique hemispherical shape of trees, a terrace of «Star Wars» — from the wedding of Padme and Anakin,  an we can talk a lot about its magnificence and beauty. 

Guests can reach the villa only from the water, as it’s located on the hill of the peninsula.  The most popular place for the ceremony here is on the «loggia» with three arches on each side, entwined with ivy. The loggia can accommodate about 50 guests. It is very picturesque and does not need the additional decoration. In any case, this could be very difficult — the villa only works with its contractors, and prohibits all the creative ideas, allowing only compositions that do not affect the walls, fastenings and plants of the villa.

After the ceremony you can invite your guests to the wedding dinner to the «Secret Loggia» — a beautiful room on the hill, where the view is even more breathtaking. The walls of villa are almost entirely composed of panoramic windows that can be opened on three sides. The full feeling of dinner outdoors, although you are under the roof. 

For groups over 70 guests, the dinner is also possible in the marquee on the terrace under a large tree. And of course, you need to build it first, remember about the access on the water and «their contractors»? To build a marquee on Balbianello is completely manual work, it costs a lot, but again I will say «unique» in relation to such a celebration.

Мечта абсолютного большинства пар — провести свадьбу на вилле Бальбианелло.
Она представляет из себя локацию потрясающей красоты, уникальную по своему расположению и конструкции.
Известная своим парком с уникальной полусферической формой деревьев, террасой “из Звездных войн” — со свадьбы Падме и Энакена, можно долго говорить о ее великолепии.

Поскольку вилла расположена на холме полуострова, подъезд гостей к ней возможен только с воды.
Самое популярное место для церемонии — это так называемая “лоджия” с тремя арками с каждой стороны, обвитыми плющом. В лоджии могут разместиться примерно 50 гостей. Она очень живописна и практически не нуждается в декоре. Что было бы все равно очень сложно — вилла работает только со своими подрядчиками, и запрещает все, что может прийти вам в голову креативного. Только композиции, которые не затрагивают стены, крепления и растения виллы.

После церемонии вы с гостями можете переместиться на банкет в “Секретную лоджию” — красивое помещение на холме, с которого открывается еще более захватывающий вид. Ее стены практически полностью состоят из огромных окон-дверей, которые могут быть открыты с трех сторон. Полное ощущение ужина на улице, только вы под крышей.
Для групп свыше 70 гостей ужин возможен также и в шатре на террасе под большим деревом. Который, конечно же, нужно построить сначала — помните про подъезд по воде и “своих подрядчиков”? Построить шатер на Бальбианелло — это полностью ручной труд, он обходится дорого, но вновь приведу эпитет “уникальный” в отношении такого торжества.

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-Balbiano

Villa Balbiano

Villa Balbiano is located in the small town named Ossuccio, nearby the Villas Balbianello and Sola Cabiati. Renovated last year by the famous French architect Jacques Garcia, this villa is known as one of the best villas on Lake Como for a wedding.

The villa has a huge area with very beautiful gardens and a park that allows you to make a magnificent shot with spectacular views.

Perhaps it seems that this villa looks a little more modest than, for example, Villa Erba, but its interior with antique furniture and a beautiful well-kept park in the style of the Tuileries will easily prove to you the opposite. 

Guests can be accommodated in the villa or in small hotels nearby.

A wedding banquet for a celebration of up to 50 guests can be arranged in the inner halls of the villa, and for weddings with a large number of guests you can build a marquee in the park.

There is also a concierge, which will help the guests with the organization of trips, cooks, and any other requests. Also, Balbiano owners  are open for cooperation and event organization. The only disadvantage of Villa Balbiano is a very high price.

Вилла Балбиано расположена в городке Оссуччо , неподалеку от вилл Балбианелло и Сола Кабьяти.

Отреставрированная в прошлом году известным французским архитектором Жаком Гарсиа, по праву считается одной из лучших вилл на озере Комо для проведения свадьбы.

У виллы огромная прилегающая территория с очень красивыми садами и парком, которая позволяет сделать великолепную съемку с захватывающими видами.
Возможно, вам покажется, что эта вилла выглядит немного скромнее, чем, например, вилла Эрба, но ее внутреннее убранство с античной мебелью и красивейший ухоженный парк в стиле тюильри легко докажут вам обратное.

Размещение гостей можно на вилле или в небольших отелях поблизости.
Свадебный банкет для торжества до 50 гостей можно организовать во внутренних залах виллы, а для свадеб с большим количеством приглашенных можно построить шатер в парке.

К услугам гостей также есть консьерж, который поможет с организацией поездок, повара, и любых других запросов гостей виллы.
Хозяева виллы открыты для сотрудничества и организации мероприятий.
Единственный минус виллы Балбиано — это очень высокая стоимость.

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-D'Este

Villa D’Este

Known for its magnificent park, chic historical interiors and impeccable service of the luxury five-star hotel, Villa D’Este is certainly perfect for high-level weddings.

The villa is located in a small picturesque town called Cernobbio, and provides the opportunity to accommodate a large number of guests. Your guests can also stay in one of the many hotels nearby and reach villa in 15 minutes by car or by boat on the lake.

Wedding ceremonies are held in front of the mosaic nympheum of the 16th century, which is located among ten hectares of a wondrous park with slender cypresses and oleanders, fragrant camellias and magnolias and a 500-year-old sprawling plane tree.

Wedding banquet can be organized in the «red hall», with a view and exit to the lake, is suitable for celebrations of up to 50 people, or in «bright hall» with access to the park, for a larger number of guests.

The difficulties which can occur while working with this location:

Firstly, this is a hotel, with all the ensuing and if you don’t rent a whole hotel exclusively, you will see another guests of the villa on your wedding day. No, they won’t attend your wedding «in swimming trunks» (frequent fear of couples!) as the culture of this villa’s guests is on the highest level, but there is a possibility that they will see your ceremony and face with your guests in the halls.

The price. Villa D’Este does not pretend to be accessible or economical, and its management believes that any additional service, time, rental zones should be appropriately paid for.

Also there is no possibility to build a marquee, or make a banquet outdoors. 

Известная своим великолепным парком, шикарными историческими интерьерами и безукоризненным сервисом шикарного пятизвездочного отеля, коим она по сути и является, Вилла Д’Эсте, безусловно, достойна внимания для проведения свадеб высокого уровня.

Вилла расположена в небольшом живописном городке Черноббьо, и предоставляет возможность размещения большого количества гостей. Ваши гости также могут разместиться в одном из множества отелей, расположенных неподалеку и добраться до виллы за 15 минут на машине или по озеру на теплоходе.

Свадебные церемонии проводят перед мозаичным нимфеумом XVI века, разместившимся среди десяти гектаров дивного парка со стройными кипарисами и олеандрами, благоухающими камелиями и магнолиями и 500-летним раскидистым платаном.

Для банкета на вилле используются чаще всего 2 зала: один, “красный зал”, с видом и выходом на озеро подходит для торжеств до 50 человек, и второй, “светлый зал” с выходом в парк, для большего числа приглашенных.

Какие сложности могут быть в работе с этой локацией:

Это прежде всего отель, со всеми вытекающими последствиями. Если вы не арендуете отель в эксклюзивное пользование, вы гарантированно будете видеть других гостей виллы в день вашей свадьбы. Нет, гости не будут “ходить в купальных плавках” (частое опасение пар!) по отелю или заглядывать к вам на банкет — нет; уровень клиентов этой виллы высочайший, и ее гости воспитаны соответствующе, но смотреть издалека на вашу церемонию, пересекаться с гостями в холлах — это возможно.

Стоимость. Вилла не претендует на доступность или экономичность, и менеджмент справедливо полагает, что любой дополнительный сервис, время, зоны аренды должны быть соответствующе оплачены.

На вилле нельзя построить шатер, либо провести банкет под открытым небом.

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-Erba

Villa Erba

Villa Erba is the one of most popular and beautiful villas on Como, which is supposed to be an ideal venue for a destination wedding. 

There are plenty possibilities for a photoshoot: lake Como views, huge green park and charming old rooms in the neorenaissance style. Villa has a convenient location in the small and picturesque Chernobbio, near the Como town, allows to reach the villa in 15 minutes by car or by boat.

There are many hotels located nearby the villa that can accommodate your guests. 

There are many picturesque places for the outdoor ceremony with both a view of the lake and the villa. One of the most popular places is the staircase nearby the water.

The halls of the villa are suitable for a small banquet  up to 60 guests — a cozy and very beautiful Fresco hall, and  you can invite up to 200 people and arrange a banquet using several halls of the villa competently. Also, the marquee can be built right in the park of the villa.

Villa Erba belongs to luxury villas, and the price is quite high, as well as the contractual policy is quite strict. These points are definitely worth considering when planning a wedding at the villa.

Вилла Эрба — одна из самых популярных и красивых на озеро Комо, которая идеально подходит для проведения выездной свадьбы:

Множество возможностей для фотосессии: великолепные виды на озеро Комо, очаровательные старинные комнаты в стиле неоренессанс, огромный ухоженный парк. Удачное расположение в маленьком и живописном городке Черноббьо, недалеко от города Комо, позволит добраться на виллу за 15 минут езды на машине или по озеру на прогулочном теплоходе.

Недалеко от виллы расположено множество отелей, где могут разместиться ваши гости.

Для церемонии под открытым небом на вилле есть множество живописных мест как с видом на озеро, так и на саму виллу. Одно из самых популярных — лестница у воды.

Залы виллы подойдут как для небольшого банкета — уютный и очень красивый зал Фресок, в котором можно разместить до 60 гостей, так и для торжества побольше — грамотно используя залы виллы, можно пригласить 200 человек.

Также можно построить шатер прямо в парке виллы.

Отмечу также, что вилла Эрба относится к виллам люксового класса, и стоимость услуг на ней достаточно высока, а также вилла отличается своей строгой договорной политикой. Эти моменты обязательно стоит учитывать при планировании свадьбы на вилле.

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-Pizzo

Villa Pizzo

Villa Pizzo is located in Cernobbio. This is a convenient location, very near the airport and from the Como town, and it’s easy to reach the villa in 15 minutes by car or by boat.

Villa Pizzo is known as a venue chosen for wedding ceremonies and banquets for Hollywood celebrities, for example, John Legend and Chrissie Teijen in 2014.

The style of villa is ideal for a wedding, here you can make a wedding ceremony and a banquet outdoors. The banquet is often organized in front of a staircase directly above the lake, and the ceremony is held on a beautiful terrace.

The marquee is built for a banquet usually, as the inner halls of the villa are rarely used. The design with girlands is very popular design to create the American style banquet, which perfectly looks into the landscapes of Lake Como.

Among the difficulties there is a limited availability due to the fact that it is under the control of Milan catering and catch free dates is not so easy.

Вилла Пиццо находится в Черноббьо, и это ее неоспоримый плюс — удобное расположение, совсем недалеко от аэропорта и от города Комо, позволит добраться на виллу за 15 минут езды на машине или по озеру.

Вилла Пиццо известна тем, что на ней проводили свадебные церемонии и банкеты голливудские знаменитости, например, Джон Ледженд и Крисси Тейджен в 2014г.

По стилистике вилла идеально подходит для свадьбы, на ней можно провести как свадебную церемонию, так и банкет на открытом воздухе. Банкет обычно делают на живописной площадке перед лестницей, находящейся прямо над озером, а церемонию проводят на красивой террасе.

Для банкета чаще строят шатер, поскольку внутренние залы виллы крайне редко используют. Очень популярен вариант оформления с гирляндами — получается такой банкет в американском стиле, который отлично вписывается в пейзажи озера Комо.

Из сложностей можно назвать ограничения виллы по доступности, связанные с тем, что она находится под управлением миланского кейтеринга и очень сложно поймать свободные даты.

Muravnik.com-Como-Lake-best-wedding-villas-Sola Cabiati

Villa Sola Cabiati

This villa is not the hotel or event venue. This is an accomodation villa with 6 suits for 12 guests.  Villa can offer the incredible service which is provided by the Grand Hotel Tremenzo, which is located in 10 minutes walk. Villa guests can enjoy the spa, pool and restaraunt service there.  

Villa is located on the lake, but the road separates it from the water. At the same time there is a huge place overlooking the lake and a very beautiful garden where you can hold both a ceremony and a banquet.

For the wedding banquet with more than 30 guests you should build the marquee.  There are also stunning halls with white and pink frescoes, which will become an ideal wedding background  for a small celebration. 

You can find many beautiful corners on the villa where you can make a photoshoot for both the couple and the bridal morning. Well-known photographers as well the fashion editions often take pictures here. 

The villa is located in Tremezzo, approximately in the middle of the lake. It’s a popular tourist area, although a bit difficult to achieve. Despite this, there are a lot of accommodating  opportunities. The best cultural program for the guests is to organize a boat tour and see the small towns such as Bellagio and Varenna, and also see Villa Balbianello, which is very close. 

There is also a personal butler in the villa, who responds to all requests of the villa guests, and also a chef who prepares any Italian delicacies for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Вилла Сола Кабьяти отличается от других тем, что она не является ни отелем, ни центром для проведения мероприятий. Это полноценная вилла для проживания, в ее 6 сьютах можно разместить 12 человек.

На вилле потрясающий сервис, предоставляемый Гранд Отелем Тремеццо, который находится по соседству в 10 минутах ходьбы. Гости виллы могут пользоваться всеми удобствами отеля — спа, бассейном и рестораном.

Отличительной чертой этой виллы также является то, что она находится на озере, но непосредственно от воды ее отделяет дорога. При этом у нее есть огромная площадка с видом на озеро и очень красивый сад, где можно провести как церемонию, так и банкет.

Для проведения свадебного банкета, на котором будут присутствовать более 30 гостей, чаще всего строится шатер.

Для камерных свадеб на вилле есть потрясающей красоты залы с бело-розовыми фресками, которые идеально подходят для свадебной тематики.

На этой вилле можно найти множество красивых уголков, в которых можно провести фотосессию как для пары, так и для сборов невесты. Здесь часто проводят съемки известные фотографы, а также модные издания.

Находится вилла в городке Тремеццо, примерно в середине озера, в популярной туристической зоне, правда, немного трудноступной. Несмотря на это, возможностей по размещению гостей очень много, так же как и по организации культурной программы: интересно будет организовать тур на катере и посмотреть небольшие городки Белладжио и Варенна, а также увидеть виллу Балбианелло, находящуюся совсем близко.

В распоряжении гостей на вилле имеется персональный дворецкий, который отвечает на все запросы гостей виллы, а также повар, который приготовит любые итальянские вкусности на завтрак, обед и ужин.

FROM THE WEDDING PLANNERS

Polina and Denis dreamed to organize a luxurious, but at the same time very gentle and romantic wedding in a beautiful location with exquisite design. They spent a few years in Spain and fell in love with this country. We wanted to add the leitmotif of Spain, and to do it the most interestingly way. Living in Spain, Polina fell in love with the luxurious lilac wisteria, which has its branches wrapped around the ancient Spanish castles.

This image inspired our team to create the concept of “Flowering Wisteria”, which perfectly matched with the history of our couple’s story. The color palette of the wedding was based on Polina’s favorite shades– from dusty pink to deep purple. Developing layout design for wedding decoration, our team tried to create the maximum feeling of airiness. The design was filled with transparent material, cool colors, translucent fabrics and mirrored surfaces. The impression was as if guests found themselves in a magical crystal palace. Not only the favorite colors of the bride, but also the interests of the groom served as an inspiration for the decorators.

Denis is engaged in hockey for many years. Therefore decorators suggested adding metallic accessories for the morning preparations of the groom, and to create a feeling of ice surfaces at the banquet, setting mirrored tables and crystal chandeliers.

The ceremony area was decorated with unique arrangement – “real” tree of Wisteria in bloom. No one in Russia has ever created such a tree before. Blooming Wisteria blended into the landscape so harmoniously, that it seemed the tree grew at this place for centuries. Flowers framed the aisle with a monogram of the couple and one of the patterns of the wedding led to the tree. Transparent chairs in this area were perfectly in harmony with the gazebo and glimmered beautifully in the sunlight.

A unique set of invitations was developed specially for this wedding. The lavender envelope was decorated with wisteria, wax seal with the couples monogram and calligraphy. The invitation was printed on clear plastic. The second part of the invitation — the dress code card — contained an image of the greenhouse with wisteria that was a reference to the ceremony area and the entire concept of the wedding.

Some surprises were prepared for guests and newlyweds during the evening. Polina and Denis appeared in the hall in incredibly bright style. The groom performed a song welcoming the guests and opening banquet. In the middle of the evening Polina changed several dresses. At first a second wedding dress for the first dance, and then a costume dress – to perform special Latino dance for Denis. Denis, in turn, had prepared a surprise for Polina with full responsibility. Several training sessions with professional dancers and here it is – one of the most fun and memorable events of the evening. The groom went to the dance floor and danced to the popular tunes of recent years with his friends for seven minutes. The performance was very dynamic despite its length. The bride and the guests were lost in admiration.

The wedding cake with a height of almost one meter, made according to our sketches, appeared at the end of the evening. In conclusion, artists of fire-show performed effective show in Spanish style.

CATALONIA, SPAIN DESTINATION WEDDINGMas Mauri Villa

Also seen on Style Me Pretty

Preparing the shoot for Muravnik photography Barcelona workshop we decided to work with a real couple – Lisa and Claudio, getting inspiration from their story.

Lisa and Claudio:

She was born in snowy Sweden, him — under the radiant sun of Chile, destiny brought them to the Mediterranean in Barcelona.

Lightness of flowing silks and buff masonry walls of a Spanish manor of the 16th century, noble shine of gold and magical gardens of the Renaissance, blinding glow of diamonds, frozen in the color of burnt sugar, luxurious floral arrangements of orchids, ranunculus, roses, peonies and jasmine, caressed by copper rays of the setting sun — Our story breathes the air of a languid late afternoon in Spain. The story, created under the notes of pale golden Chardonnay, retained aristocratic elegance and refined luxury, all tied up by the sweetness of a vanilla Spanish sky.

Words of love:
Lisa’s morning began in the garden of a Spanish manor writing a letter to her beloved Claudio, tracing calligraphic monograms on handmade paper. A cream dessert colored boudoir lingerie made of natural silk, soft hair, a slight touch of make-up to emphasize the natural beauty of the bride created a gentle romantic image.
The bride’s vanity table was decorated with a composition of garden flowers, with noble accents of peony-roses and peonies, which complemented a vintage perfume bottle containing the bride’s favorite honey aroma.

Ceremony:
Oneness with nature and harmony is felt in every detail, starting with the weightless style of bridal gown in contrast with the groom’s more classic looks, finishing with sophisticated orchids decorating the backs of forged iron chairs. The emerald-green landscape of the Santa Clotilde Gardens in Cataluniya, boasting classic sculptures, old staircases covered with wild ivy, mesmerizing views of the sea create a powerful equilibrium between luxury and finesse, the beauty of the moment frozen in time, under the rays of a setting sun.

Dinner at the Manor:
Antique silverware was chosen for the table, classic patinated gold plates, decorated with 24-carat gold ornaments, crystal glassware and bronze chandeliers on a silk tablecloth. Plated steel vase with floral arrangements of orchids, peony-roses, peonies, jasmine and other garden flowers. The gentle sounds of classical music and the light of the candles top off the wedding dinner with a dreamy, romantic atmosphere.

When we created the wedding story of Lisa and Claudio, our main reference point was harmony, a combination of elegance and luxury in every detail while retaining a sense of proportion to emphasize our couple, their feelings and emotions of the moment.

Love, romance, tenderness are some of the most recurrent themes in the fine-arts. Our classical approach to the art of wedding composition makes it so each one of the stories we create are filled with beauty, elegance and pure feelings.

Destination wedding in Georgia mountainsRooms hotel, Kazbegi

Photography: Muravnik photography // Wedding Planning: Wedding Classic // Flowers and decor: Holiday Everyday // MUAH: Anastasia  Raevskaya  // Dress: Maria Alekseeva // Accessories: Nch wedding jewelry // Video: Fresh Feeling Studio // Venue: Rooms Hotel, Kazbegi, Georgia //

From the bride:

We’ve decided to hold our ceremony in the mountains. They have a special atmosphere, there is something mysterious and attractive about them, something that keeps intimate feelings and emotions away from the public eye. And even though there are many beautiful and majestic mountains in Italy, Switzerland and France, our choice fell on a very picturesque place in our beloved Georgia – Kazbegi. It is hard to find more hospitable people, living with a sense of a holiday inside, and always smiling. And we just wanted to experience this inexpressible Georgian charm.

We invited only the closest people, making the celebration very cozy and homey warm. Our guests and us stayed in the world famous Room Hotel Kazbegi, which interior literally tells the story of the Georgian people.

The basis for the décor conception, as well as the entire wedding, served natural textures and ethnic motives. The location we’ve chosen, with all its rocks, mountain tops and slopes, was so original that only a few additional décor elements were necessary.

Our decorators picked amazingly beautiful natural materials: stones, impressive wooden tables, silk ribbons, snags, candles in the stone holders, and added some tender white and gray-blue flowers.

The wedding dress was custom made of natural silk with a long train easily picked up by the wind, making the bride look more mysterious. With the stylist we have decided to make three different images: the one for the morning had natural curls, the other for the walk had the hair on one side, and for the ceremony we put the hair back and added a three meter long veil.

Through distance and timeFour seasons hotel elegant wedding

Photography: Muravnik Photography // Wedding Planner — Peony Studio Events //  Floristics and Decor: Peony Studio // Cake: Nabirka.ru // Wedding gown: Alexander Arutyunov // MUAH: Tonya Pushkareva // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Wedding crown and earrings: Dolce & Gabbana // Location: Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg //

От Peony Studio:

«Расстояние научило жить без границ, не важно где ты, в каком городе,стране, ты всегда рядом. Под одним небом.» С этих слов началась история нашей пары, которая привела их к этому счастливому дню.
И именно поэтому церемония была создана словно небесный нимб над их головами, а в аксессуарах невесты основными акцентами стали символичные ангелы.

Свадьба Юрия и Валерии это отражение современной классики. Аристократические нотки были изначально заданы интерьерами отеля Four Seasons в Петербурге, но нам не хотелось перегрузить декором пространство, а напротив — подчеркнуть воздух, лаконичность, благородство. Сдержанная палитра, акцент на фактуры стекла, кожи, высокой печати, латуни идеально подошли для реализации наших идей.

FROM JULIA
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! This was the first and brightest emotion I had after seeing the photos! While viewing the pictures with Marina and Alex, and then watching them ten more times with friends, relatives and sometimes just by ourselves, we were each time instantly taken back to that wonderful day! We felt like crying and laughing while living through all the brightest, funniest, most exciting and touching moments of our day. All the photos we have received are viewed in one breath, as if it was a slow motion of our main day, which you can stop anytime and live through this or that moment of the wedding.
Marina and Alex, thank you so much for the wonderful, tender, airy, stylish and amazingly emotional pictures! By some wonderful magic, you captured the beauty of the villa and the place of the festivities, the atmosphere of the day, emotions, uncontrollable fun and all the happy tears!
We can forever watch the reportage photos taken during the reception and dinner, recalling and laughing at the funniest moments of the evening!

Separate ‘thank you’ for the photos of our morning, first look and the photo session. We look so beautiful and happy! And we like the original look of our pictures, without unnatural posing and facial expressions, sincere and reflecting the glow in our eyes and the emotions we felt at that moment.

Alex, my personal ‘thanks’ goes to you for your fluent English and the approach you found for my husband. Stewart really enjoyed our photo session, and he is happy with his pictures from the morning preparations (and with all the pictures, in fact). The fact that we have met for a short love story shoot a couple of months prior to the wedding worked amazingly in making feel easy, comfortable and relaxed during the wedding day.

We chose our wedding photographer carefully, because the photos are the memories, which would stay with us forever. These memories should be beautiful and alive. I was a bride who didn’t know what she wanted, but after getting the pictures from Marina and Alex, I realized they were just what I have always dreamed of.

FROM STEWART
Marina and Alexey were recently the official photographers for our wedding in Lake Como Italy.
From the first time we met we were made to feel comfortable and at ease and we believe this was key to making the experience and final photograph album excellent quality.

We started with an engagement photo session which gave us a chance to meet and get to know Marina and Alexey and vice versa. The ‘dry run’ really enabled us to relax and allowed the photographers to learn how best to photograph us.

The experience at our wedding day was equally relaxed. Marina and Alexey were there to capture every moment and every emotion, but without imposing on the experience of our special day. As the day progressed they were almost ‘invisible’ to us.
We were thrilled with the end result, the photos precisely captured every aspect of our wedding and the quality was outstanding. We ended up with an album which captured all the key memories and more, and is a precious momento of our wedding day.

Modern forest weddingAlexandra & Ilya

The bride Alexandra about preparation for the wedding.

Wedding is a bright and warm celebration not only for the marrying couple, but for the close relatives and friends as well. Therefore we wanted to create a very special atmosphere for the event, filled with the warmth of the summer, light white colors and a lot of lights. Many international blogs and magazines were studied for the inspiration, however the main themes and images were suggested by the nature itself.

It had been raining the entire week before the wedding, but on the wedding day the sun was up in the sky, shining brightly over the rich green colors of the country hotel “Rodniki” (The Springs). This place, located outside of the big city is quite unique and picturesque. There you find the stoned footpaths covered with wet moss, a century old fir-trees casting fancy shadows and each tree leaf reflecting its own tint of green.

The idea behind the décor was to make it look very natural and fit the perfect scenery around. The lounge zone was like the forest tent grown up among the bright green colors surrounding it. Romantic live music, Champaign and cheese table added to the atmosphere of the summer holiday. The ceremony, which took place almost at sunset, was lit by many small lights as if they were some tiny glowworms. The Bride entered the ceremony accompanied by the “Moon River” instrumental tune. In her hands she had a beautiful bouquet of irregular shape.
The accents of the banquet zone were created with the help of the tropical motives. The big monstera leaves served the bases for the plates. The wall behind the couple was decorated as if it was a part of an old house buried in the woods. Metallic candlesticks in the shape of snags reminded of the “souvenirs” from impassible forest. Finally, the mixture of round and long tables turned out to be an ideal option for the celebration – one long table was occupied by the two families’ members, the other round ones were taken by the friends.
It was important during the preparation stage to consider every detail, so that nothing was accidental. At the same time sticking to one specific style was not our intention. Therefore, we ended up with some quite unusual combinations. Vintage furniture was standing next to an armchair of modern style, and the stylish shoes made of plastic and metallic color leather completed the romantic image of the Bride.

The hardest and the longest was the process of choosing the wedding dress. It wasn’t easy to find a dress without paste, lace and excessive splendor, which would go along with natural décor but wouldn’t be too minimalistic. It was a difficult task! The decision to buy this particular dress, made of many layers of natural silk, was made after trying it on. It felt like the dress was made of tender leaves. The headpiece also had some nature themes in it and fit perfectly the elegant image of the Bride.
As for the Groom, here we gave our preferences to the classic attire in order to underline the solemnity of the moment. The traditional tuxedo of the Groom was meant to emphasize the feminine image of the Bride.
By choosing natural themes for our celebration we left no room for any insincere emotions. Only the closest family and friends were invited to the wedding whose happy laughter and tears made it all worth it. The celebration turned out to be so bright that every photo radiates its warmth even during the cold winter evenings.

FROM THE BRIDE AND GROOM

Dear Marina and Alex!

This is happiness when in a big wedding world you find people who can feel the beauty in such way and show it through their work! Every detail, every camera angle, color, moment – all is ideal and harmonic in each photograph. Each photograph is like a dream came true. We have got exactly what we had been dreaming of for a long time, and maybe hadn’t had a chance to examine closely while being ‘inside’ the celebration. Friends and family, everyone found the beauty, the joy and the sincerity on their photographs.
We were especially impressed by the film photographs that turned out to be so alive, deep in color and tender. These are the pictures that we want to frame and surround us with, enjoying them day after day. You managed to have the film photographs reflect the bright moments and the movement, but in even more elegant way.
As any couple we were very nervous and there weren’t a single thought in our heads. Which background to choose, who to have a picture with, how to behave? The only emotion we could show was probably the fright. Guests, bridesmaids and parents were in about the same state of confusion. But you have always found the right words, which put the smiles on our faces. You, as true artists, saw the big picture and directed the shoot easily and naturally.

You helped us a lot not only during the wedding day, but along the process as well. Valuable advices and ideas from Marina helped to create the atmosphere that ultimately impressed all the guests. We sincerely believe that only a few people are able to feel and see the beauty in such a way, and especially create it in their work.
You are not just real professionals, but luminous people as well, pleasant to communicate with. Your eyes are bright with the excitement at each meeting, which speaks of a big love for your craft. All serious moments are easily resolved with you. And a special ‘thanks’ for helping us with some difficulties we had! This celebration wouldn’t take place without you!

We are so glad that we have met such wonderful photographers and look forward to a chance to create something beautiful together with you once again.

With gratitude,
Ilya and Alexandra

Retro style bridal inspirationSummer vibes

Мы искренне уверены, что ретро-стиль идет всем девушкам и является идеальной, неустаревающей и неисчерпаемой темой для девичника. Солнце, море, яркие краски, улыбки и кокетство в одной из наших любимых портретных серий.

Мечтаем о съемке настоящего предсвадебного девичника вместе со стилистом Ириной Поляковой, которая создала все образы этой фотосессии.

Golf resort weddingAnna & Dima

FROM THE BRIDE AND GROOM

First of all, we’d like to say ‘thank you’ for the wonderful pictures that reflect so brightly the atmosphere and the emotions of our day!
We took very seriously the process of choosing the photographer and went through a long list of professionals. It was essential for us to get the right balance of price and quality. After we have identified the short list of photographers our choice fell on Marina and Alex because of their personal qualities, easiness in communication and their desire to cooperate and create together. It took us awhile to find the perfect venue, each time thinking over some new conception. And all this time Marina and Alex were patiently waiting for our decision.

And finally the big day arrived!
We decided to have our photo-shoot the day after, thus spending as much time as possible with family and friends on the wedding day. And we were so right about it! We dived into the emotions and thrill of the wedding day completely, not thinking of photo-shoot, while the guys documented each moment without distracting us. Looking through the pictures we were able to see all the details and emotions that we had missed during the wedding day. Thanks to the guys, we were able to experience that day and all the emotions attached to it once again!

The next day we had our photo-shoot in the woods where we felt like the bride and the groom once again… Marina and Alex managed to create the right romantic mood for us! Photo-shoot went by nice and easy!

It is very important for the photographers to ‘feel’ the couple and understand its mood and relations… Marina and Alex were able to live through these days full of love and adrenalin!

Mountain wedding inspirationNymph Story

Also seen in Magnolia Rouge best wedding inspirations of 2015

This spring we were traveling in the south of Russia. Some landscapes impressed us so much with their raw beauty and spirits that we decided to make a shoot there. The story immediately came into our heads. Of cause it was “the story of love”. Here it is.

Everyone knew that the Elf possessed a gift — he was a genius sculptor. One day he created a beautiful girl, lean and graceful, out of the softest cloud in the sky. At once the Elf fell in love with his creation. But at the same time he became very unhappy because the girl didn’t have a heart and couldn’t love him back. What was there to do for the poor Elf? The Elf gave her his own beating heart and thus the Nymph was brought to life. What happened to the Elf? Well, he disappeared but not completely. He turned into wind, playing softly with her hair, whispering the words of love in her ears.

Small vacation in Saint Petersburg

Мы много ездим по России и миру со съемками. Во время каждого выезда стараемся оставлять 2-3 дня свободного времени, чтобы погулять по окрестностям, повстречаться с друзьями и завести новые знакомства. В июньский приезд в Питер мы решили задержаться на целую неделю — бродить по набережным, делать творческие съемки с талантливыми питерскими командами, сидеть на подоконниках и открывать для себя новые места знакомого города. Зная, что здесь живет талантливый пленочный фотограф, Вика Самойлова, мы не смогли отказать себе в удовольствии и попросили Вику сделать для нас небольшую фотосессию. Я даже купила платье местной марки «Черешня», потом пришлось купить колготки, в этот день дул холоднющий пронизывающий ветер. Я думаю, вы заметите на фото наши многочисленные объятья в попытках согреться)

Приятного просмотра!
