Brooke & Damien
Brooke and Damien wanted to create a dream Villa Cora wedding that would leave them with a lifetime of memories. They had travelled worldwide and fell in love with Italy from their first visit.
When they got engaged, they knew it would be a place to get married and celebrate their love with friends and family.
Daniela and her team are absolutely amazing!!
My husband and my family had an amazing time at our wedding and everyone said that our wedding planners were wonderful. Words can’t express how grateful we all are that we chose The Tuscan Wedding to plan our destination wedding, everything was a dream come true! Best day of our lives! Daniela is AMAZING!
Getting Ready for their Villa Cora Wedding
Brooke and Damien loved the idea of an early evening Villa Cora wedding. They had the whole day to prepare for the ceremony, which included a luxury wine tasting for them and their guests to enjoy.
The bride chose this stunning mermaid gown designed by Lori Allen. Covered in crystal embellishments; the dress was a show-stopping dress that left the guests in awe. She finished the look with a diamond necklace and earrings that sparkled as the sunset on their wedding. Cherie Spisso created her makeup and hair. The soft beach waves and natural tones enhanced her beauty as she celebrated her love.
Ermenegildo Zegna designed Damiens suit, in dashing jet black it was a perfect touch of class to this luxury Italian weddings. As a special touch, he wore his grandfather’s cufflinks, who unfortunately could not be in attendance.
The Tuscan Wedding planned every detail to perfection. From the hand-designed invites through to the vast swaths of roses and orchids that adorned the ceremony and reception. This wedding was nothing short of mesmerising.
Brooke and Damiens Villa Cora wedding was a gorgeous outdoor event, with a large archway of roses surrounding them on the most special day of their lives. The ceremony was filled with love and romantic gestures to one another.
They lit a unity candle to signify their love for one another before saying their vows with a traditional handfasting. Furthermore, when they said their final vows and took their first kiss as husband and wife, they released white doves to symbolise purity for their new marriage.
Finally, they also included a unique wedding tradition of jumping over the broom.
The ceremony was beautifully intimate with only 40 guests while being truly romantic and opulent. It was the dream day they had always planned.
Cocktails & Dinner for a Villa Cora Wedding
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed delectable cocktails and canapes. The Tuscan Wedding team created everything according to the wishes of Brooke and Damien. A Villa Cora wedding is unforgettable as the main hall is the picture of Italian luxury. Rennaisance gold walls and hand-painted murals are unlike any other venue in Tuscany.
Il Giardino delle Fate florals decorated the venue to perfection. Gorgeous glass towers filled to the brim with roses and orchids with Swarovski crystals hanging stood as the centrepieces on the long tables. Furthermore, hundreds of roses ran the length of the whole table. It was the perfect level of opulence for their personal and romantic day.
The wedding breakfast was three courses of Italian luxury. Starting with delightful Tomato bruschetta and burrata cheese, followed by ravioli filled with ricotta cheese and spinach. Then, the delicious beef fillet, local potatoes, tomatoes and zucchinis.
The reception was a spectacular party that finished the day in style. Full of personal touches for the couple.
Their completely bespoke cake was four-tiers with of perfect shimmering fondant finished with light blush hydrangeas and roses. Sugarcups created this masterpiece that was a showstopper that tasted as good as it looked.
Finally, they finished their day with a bang that left them and their guests with a lifetime of memories. The final moment of their day was a dazzling fireworks show that filled the sky with gold sparkles.
