REAL BIJOU BRIDE – EVGENIYA’S STYLISH SICILIAN WEDDING

Monday January 20 2014.

by

Today’s wedding is full of laid back glamour and fun which make it one hell of a super stylish Sicilian wedding.  Bride and Groom, Evgeniya and Alexey, decided to escape the cold climate of their Russian home for an unforgettable holiday with their closest friends and family.

THE VENUE

Sicily was suggested by a travel agent friend and they quickly found the perfect villa for the week’s celebrations.  The Villa Antares offered Alexey and Evgeniya’s guests incredible panoramic views over the secluded beach front of Fontane Bianche which is where they held their wedding ceremony.

Jaw-dropping isn’t it!

THE BRIDE

Evgeniya is a model and knew exactly the bridal look she wanted to achieve, bouncy curls and natural looking make up.

Hairstylist and Make Up Artist Reale Parrucchieri nailed Evgeniya’s wishes with peachy blush and lipgloss.

Evgeniya’s stunning crystal bodice, empire line wedding dress was accessorised with vintage diamond earrings, long veil and a brightly coloured bouquet.

BEACH CEREMONY

This glamourous couple said ‘I Do’ on the rocky beach by their villa with the deep blue Mediterranean sea as their backdrop, under a simple white gazebo.

Their photographers Fotografo Professionale had the most beautiful natural light to work with, grabbing heaps of fun shots of the couple running along the beach.

The wedding party moved up to the Baroque centre of the ancient town of Siracusa for unique photo time, a must with any destination wedding.  The couple were so excitable that they started their first dance accompanied by some buskers much to the amusement of passing tourists.

RECEPTION

Back at the villa champagne flowed in special cobalt blue crystal goblets, a gift from the beat man, as the sun set.  Guests were spoilt with an intimate Italian dinner.  And with such a beautiful setting, decoration was kept to a minimum with candles creating a romantic atmosphere and the odd arrangement of blush roses.

And the final wedding duty before dancing into the small hours, cutting the cake.  The Chanel inspired pink cake was decorated with sugar roses, silk ribbon and diamante brooches, almost too good to eat.
