Elegant Italian wedding at Villa Cetinale in Tuscany

Mar 02, 2023 | Weddings

Have you written your wedding vows yet? If not, there's no need to rush. Laura and Julian wrote their own vows on the morning of their October wedding day and actress Laura recalls it as one of her favorite memories from the day, a quiet moment pouring her heart out onto the paper while getting ready.

Laura and Julian, who reside in Hong Kong, threw a four-day celebration Villa Cetinale in Tuscany for friends and family from around the world, with the help of Italian wedding planner Weddings by Silke. They created a simple, elegant aesthetic that felt totally at one with the surrounding Tuscan landscape and old-world setting.

“I love simple elegance," explains Laura. "I dreamed of a fine art, romantic, timeless and elegant wedding with organic textures and natural colors. Simple and understated yet still charming and whimsical. I wanted our wedding to have an organic flow and elegant design, with a color palette of warm neutral tones.

"I had a very specific vision in mind from the beginning and I felt so lucky to find the most amazing fine art wedding planner in Silke Hechler through Instagram. Our styles aligned perfectly. She shared my same aesthetic and love for the outdoors and understood the beauty of simplicity. We were very lucky that she happened to live in Tuscany, only an hour from Villa Cetinale. We talked a couple of times and I knew right away she was the perfect fit for us!"

Laura and Julian's ceremony took place on the villa’s property surrounded by cypress trees, where Laura’s floated down the aisle with her father in a sparkling Inbal Dror ball gown. After the ceremony, the guests headed inside for cocktail hour, which included Champagne and Italian canapés. Dinner took place at a long banquet table under a whimsical white tent in the villa’s garden, where chandeliers hung among the white drapery and a long garland of foliage decorated the length of the table. The perfect setting for this idyllic Tuscan wedding.
