Shoes glorious shoes!

There is something about hand crafted luxury shoes which have been lovingly created by someone who not only has a passion for the fine materials of silks, leathers, crystals and lace but understands the allure and glamour our fashion-forward brides are looking for.

This year we have seen a noticeable increase of couples wishing to get married in the winter months and here are the top 5 winter wedding destinations in Italy!

Flower girls and bridesmaids are big a delightful part of the wedding day. In recent years we have seen a move toward the traditional flower girl dresses and even more so after the Royal wedding last year.

I love Cardigans!

As Autumn arrives and the cooler evenings draw close the comfort of a cardi is much welcomed! Brides often go for bridal shrugs and boleros and most of them wear it only once. but if you are like me and have a drawer full of cardigans just think how much more comfortable and fun a cashmere cardigan is!

All roads lead to Rome...

... I have followed the road and I am in Roma!
Ever time I come to the "The Eternal City," I am struck by the beauty, the grandeur and perseverance of the Romans, after all “Rome was not built in a day."

1940's vintage inspiration!

Tuesdays moving vow renewal in Venice,  after 70 years of married life, started me thinking what the bride and grooms first wedding would have been like in the 1940's...

Downton Abbey Lady Mary's wedding dress

Yippy Downton Abbey is back and I am a big fan, also did I mention  that I like a good wedding... Oh the first episode did not disappoint!  So I have pushed the planned blog post to tomorrow,  to share the much awaited wedding of Lady Mary to Matthew Crawley and it was perfect! 
Her dress... 1920's understated elegance but the beautiful diamond-encrusted tiara in the shape of a garland of leaves with little floral buds was for me, the crowning glory!

Liliane Deauvergne and Jean Korde are an inspirational couple! Celebrating 70 years of marriage today, which they have called a 'marriage of iron!' by renewing their vows in the town hall of Venice. The groom who is about to celebrate his 92nd birthday and the bride aged 87, have travelled to Venice every year for the past 30 years, making it a very personal location for them to celebrate this special day! Every one here at TIWP wish them a beautiful day and many many more to come!

Imagine they tied the knot in 1942...

A day in the life of a destination-wedding planner in Italy!

 Recently I saw this image on face book, that shows a pie chart of how a wedding photographer splits his or her time. It highlighted that only a very small % of the time is actually spent taking photos of the wedding. Whilst I often laugh with my wonderful photographers, as they sign off after the first dance or the cutting of the cake, that they are part timers, I think people forget all the work that goes in to their photographs. It made me wonder what the pie chart would look like for a wedding planner...

New style solution for protecting your heels!

You know the streets in the beautiful Italian town where you are getting married are cobbled, you also know your wedding reception is going to be hosted in a beautiful garden... You know you have to tell your guests to wear wedges or flats to your wedding, but you really want those pretty shoes!
