From early on, it was clear that Fabiana and Michele’s wedding was going to be something completely out of the ordinary. On the morning, a young man clad in a baby pink tux and tophat delivered brunch to the family home!

The beautiful bride went for a bold look for her make up. Make up artist Manuela Ponti did a super dark smokey eye and kept her youthful skin looking radiant.

The wedding dress – a fabulous ballgown consisting of a crystal bodice and huge feather skirt – was designed by the bride’s good friend, designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua. She finished the look off with some sky high sparkling silver Miu Miu heels and a beautiful white fur jacket. The groom’s smart three-piece grey suit was designed by Perugian designer Sergio Donati.

The ceremony took place in the stunning Romanesque style Basilica di San Pietro di Spoleto, a church known as the most beautiful in Spoleto. Floral arrangements created by wedding planner Nicoletta de Santis lined the aisle to the altar.

We think the photographers (Alessandro and Elisa assisted by Danilo and Giulia) did an incredible job of capturing both the emotional and the festive aspects of the day, don’t you agree?! Giulia also took care of the Polaroid photos for a very special photobook. “We are so happy to have chosen him as our photographer!”

The real festivities began at the reception where guests were greeted at the Palazzo Collicola by dancers, stilt walkers and trapeze artists. The spectacle continued inside, with more Cirque du Soleil style entertainment. The decor added to the magical atmosphere with feather centrepieces and huge pink floral arrangements.
