Vintage Wedding in Vicenza – Brianna & Christian

Brianna and Christian are from Melbourne, Australia. They decided to get married in Marostica, a small town in Northern Italy, because that is the home town of Christian’s parents, where they got married more than 20 years ago. They chose to get married in Italy because they liked the idea of following Christian’s parent’s footsteps.
Twenty guests from Australia traveled to share in their wedding day but the most special guest was Christian’s nonna!

They had a civil wedding ceremony at the Marostica’s town hall overlooking the stunning Piazza degli Scacchi and then had a walk to the ancient castle where they enjoyed te view of the hills.
Even the wedding transport had a personal touch, as they used two cars Christian’s cousin had restored, one was an old Alfa Romeo which belonged to Christian’s grandfather and which was used for Christian’s parents wedding. They also had an old old Fiat Cinquecento which was also Christian’s nonno’s car.
The travelling theme inspired the whole wedding: they had a sitting table made out an vintage world map, place holders and menu wrapped with organza ribbons and a little wooden airplane, a few suitcases containing old Australian and Italian stamps as well as old postcards from Italy.
All the wedding was a traveling experience – there was an area for the aperitif, then another corner was dedicated to the picnic with some nice Balinese umbrellas and blankets to relax under the shade, then the reception under the breathtaking porch of the old Venetian villa.
Working with Brianna and Christian and meeting their lovely families was a real pleasure.
We enjoyed the whole planning of the wedding resulted in an elegant and laid back event.
