A dreamy Florentine wedding for your Tuesday! Laura, the lovely bride, happens to be a fashion editor, and she looked at her wedding as “the ultimate styling job.” The result was nothing less than lovely. Plus, Ed Peers‘s photos will absolutely make you wish you were there.

Guests received simple invitations, one for the garden luncheon, and another for the dinner party that evening.

The groom had both something borrowed and something blue! He wore the bride’s father’s oxfords, and lapis blue cufflinks.

Laura had such a beautiful plan for the wedding. “However,” she says, “I couldn’t have done it without the help and vision of my husband, my gorgeous friend Polly who decorated the garden for the day part, my lovely aunt Silva who recreated a little piece of woodland in the church and my Mum who tied up all the loose ends.”

Laura’s favorite part of the day? “I loved being showered with rice outside the church! There’s so much love in the air and the anticipation was huge.”

So much more coming up! Part II here and Part III here.

      Wow Ed, amazing work! What a gorgeous wedding.

      PS. For Martha – I recognised those flowergirl dresses straightaway as ones from Monsoon (a UK retailer) they are so pretty!

      I was wondering if the bride would be willing to share where she had her hair done? I am getting married in Tuscany next June and I am looking for a reputable salon in Florence for my trial and hair for the wedding. Any help she could offer would be so much appreciated.

      Absolutely magical wedding and reception(s)! She looks stunning as do all of her beautiful bridesmaids and attendants! Fantastic!
