Lisa and Richard, 21st July 2013

The venue for Richard and Lisa’s wedding in July was Hotel Villa Casagrande in Figline Valdarno, where Richard had proposed to Lisa on a recent trip to Italy.

The wedding ceremony and reception were held in the Cloister and the focal point was the well which was adorned with flowers, candles and fairylights.

A string trio was playing to welcome guests as they arrived for the ceremony and the bride and groom made their entrance down the stone steps into the courtyard. Photos in the gardens were followed by an aperitivo while Lisa and Richard went into the main square of Figline Valdarno for some informal pictures, accompanied by lots of ‘Auguri!’ from the locals!

Dinner was followed by the first dance and a surprise solo performance from one of Richard’s closest friends on the saxophone, before the cutting of the cake and fireworks!

On the evening after the wedding guests were invited to a relaxed ‘apericena’ with drinks and buffet dinner at the pool bar.
