Secret Garden Jeweish Weddingby Dario Benvenuti Florals & Weddings

Secret Garden  Jeweish Wedding


Today we talk about Garden…..An enchanting Garden wedding, with a marvellous couple. We worked with the bride, closely for around a year.  As a great team, envisioning step by step the wish of the beautiful bride… and now her dream has came to live.

There’s something about a secret garden theme that makes a wedding impossible to forget! Could it be the lush greens that surround each magical moment, the bright spring flowers at every turn or the smell of fresh blossoms that fill the air?

Could it be the lush greens that surround each magical moment, the bright spring flowers at every turn or the smell of fresh blossoms that fill the air?

Altogether, it makes our hearts flutter.

For Stephanie and Albert, the magic garden of Villa Reale in Lucca was the perfect scenario for their vision. The poetic and offbeat charm of ancient and uninhabited villas, magical caves,  surrounded by huge and green gardens.



Overcast skies only added to the lush, magical feel of this spring enchanting wedding where soft textures and unexpected florals added bohemian charm to the secret garden-themed wedding.

From the ceremony to reception.

Luxe crystal and golden candelabras and white silk linens, fresh foliage and tons of lush soft pink blooms.


The garden theme came to life with tables decked with candles, ivy and millions of crystals and transparencies inside a decaying yet at once fascinating greenhouse.

Herbs and Lemons: Mediterranean Rehearsal in Tuscany

Love Herbs and  Lemons! So Italian!  Herbs  and Lemons. This Classical , timeless  and friendly theme  settles at Palazzo Pfanner in Lucca  into a kind of dreamlike quality, something regal and royal.

Herbs always bring centuries of tradition, loving sentiments for the bridal couple, and wonderful fragrances.


Among the monumental rows of eighteenth-century statues depicting the Olympian gods and the Four Seasons  which silently watch over the incessant flowing of the waters.

A rich variety of ornamental plants, palm-trees and secular pines for centuries.  Immersed in an atmosphere of peace and quiet, this simple and classical decor assumes the regality of ancient times

Vintage meets modern: luxury wedding in Tuscany

A contemporary yet stylish Tuscan Villa hosted a lavish wedding.  And vintage meets modern .

This beautiful wedding ,  in collaboration with a fantastic team of wedding expertise like  Cindy Salgado wedding planner, was a delightful mix of modern and vintage elements. The venue had a modern aesthetic, with precious contemporary artistic paintings, modern decors and furnitures, while the floral design brought in a softer vintage feel.

It was amusing to combine interesting modern pieces with striking vintage mood by a super lush floral decor:  modern transparencie, sparkles and a very soft and eclectic color palette: blush-ivory , soft peach and tortora grey, an unusal yet interesting wedding palette.


vintage meets modern reception

Modern finds combine with a charming vintage floral design: opulent soft centerpieces, with an elegant eucalipthus fountain , precious blossmos, lots of votives and garden roses at the bottom.

Each place setting featured transparent and gold chargers, satin tortora grey napkins with a Garden rose embellishment
