Sarah and Kiernan

 

Most sentimental moment

After all the guests had been taken to the dinner area and seated, it was just me and Kieran, our main wedding planner and the musicians playing some music in the terrace of the villa. Kieran asked them to replay one of the songs they played during our ceremony. We had a moment, looking out onto the lake, soaking up what we had achieved and experienced so far, arm in arm listening to an acoustic version of our ceremony song. It was the only time during the whole day that it was just us. Only a few minutes, but a hugely special moment.

Favorite part with friends and family

The wedding Villa (Villa G) was a perfect choice for us. It served as a perfect base AND venue. The villa is right on the water and comes with an abundance of space and acres of land so we knew we could use it to host a part of the wedding (getting double for our money!). The villa was staffed, we had a chef, a driver, a private boat…everything you could ask for. The villa itself was traditional and we believed captured the essence of the lake, however having undergone a HUGE regeneration, it was ultra sophisticated and decked out with all the mod cons and luxuries that you could ask for. Then location was perfect, close to lots of the hotels and not far from Villa del Balbianello so logistically it all worked out as a potential venue. Being able to host the wedding outside was important to us and so the large grounds of Villa G made it a perfect choice. Also being able to roll directly into bed from the dance floor at 3am when the wedding finished was a MASSIVE BONUS!

How we personalized it

We didn’t want any traditional wedding songs instead opting for songs which had a personal significance to us throughout our ceremony….so we had an acoustic guitar duo play several songs for the ceremony and then they played music throughout the drinks reception.

The Groom and best men had personalised silver cufflinks with the wedding logo engraved that we had made by Stuzanne. We also had personalised wedding handkerchiefs, embroidered with our wedding logo for the wedding party.
