Nicky and Bex were married in true Italian style at the stunning Borgo Santo Pietro in Tuscany, in a private vow ceremony beneath an arch of white roses, amongst the fountains in the gardens of the hotel. All 13 acres of the estate were decorated with lemons, lavender and stunning flowers creating a look that was as relaxed as it was elegant, and as chic as it was fun.
Nicky chose two Stewart Parvin gowns – the first Falling Away With You for her Italian ceremony, and then the elegant Eternal Flame for a later celebration at Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, Oxfordshire, in the Japanese Tea Garden. The simple cut, and delicate lace of Falling Away With You perfectly encompassed the elegant and timeless feel Nicky wanted to achieve for her wedding.
“I am really not a dress person and don’t have much patience when it comes to fittings but immediately in the boutique I felt at ease and not pressured. Jamie has become a friend and now I’m a HUGE fan of Stewart Parvin. Its such a beautifully presented boutique with lovely spacious luxurious fitting suites, Jamie looked after me the whole time and made me feel so comfortable”
After the ceremony, the guests sat together for the wedding breakfast, and a fabulous comedy quartet “Quartetto Euphoria” played amazing covers in a beautiful classic style – a lively and engaging performance which kept everyone on their toes! “Frazzle Mirelli”, an Italian trio, ensured the wedding party could dance the night away, and a dramatic firework display was the perfect finale to this Italian dream of a wedding day.
