About a wedding in Milano!

This week I went to Milano to attend my cousin's wedding! He and his wife know each other for 11 years now, and they actually met in Great Britain in their teenage years.. So they decided to make a wedding inspired by the awesome country where their love started.
They married on Saturday the 6th July, it was far over 30 degrees, and everybody sweated as hell! Nevertheless it was an amazing and unforgettable day!

Very un-traditional for Italy, they didn't marry in a church, but outdoor..

It was quite something new for me and many others from my family, but I think it looks really beautiful and it's a great idea! The actual ceremonie was so amazing, so wonderful, me and many others even started crying!
This place you see on the picture above is actually a villa called Villa Bodo - Maison de Charme, it's an enormous, beautiful, green and peaceful place to marry and there even is a big swimming pool!

So how you can see this villa is in a style of an old, but really big farm house. This little duck here hid my two-years-old cousin called Tiago and I really had to laugh when I saw it! Although I don't really know how a two-years-old is able to put a bathing duck that high!

So when the ceremonie begun, one of my seven little cousins, the two-years-old mentioned above, Tiago, walked to the priest to bring the rings (I think). I love what the was wearing so much!
And of course he was followed by three bridesmaids who where wearing pink!

Then of course a little bit of italian-tradition: The rice! Everybody gets such a little bag with rice and when the freshly married couple walks back everybody throws the rice at them to wish them luck and happiness! I love how they colored the rice pink this time.

Then we went to the apero, which actually took nearly three hours (!), but there was so much to eat! Only a really really small part of what you could eat you can see here:

Oh Italian food is and stays the best! Anyways, since the apero was outside, it was so HOT that I had to went inside after one hour otherwise I would have died probably.

Here you see the view from inside (it wasn't much colder there) to the apero outside. 
On the right you can also see my other little cousin named Matilda.

A little view of the courtyard! 

And of course I also wanted to show you what I wore that day! I opted for an airy and rather loose and simpel dress, in the color of dark grey, with some glitter-studds on the top. You may already know my shoes from previous posts.. I had to wear them because of the wedge. I couldn't go for high-heels because of the grass and the gravel at this villa! 

Since it would have been to dark like this, I highlighted the look with my new favorite color: (Mint-)Green! My nail-polish, my bag, my bracelet and my feather-earrings were mint-green. I love putting some accents to a rather simple look!

Dress - Only
Shoes - Globus
Bag - H&M
Earrings - Manora
Bracelet - H&M
Nail Polish - Kiko

Another view taken from the courtyard, facing the room we (about 200 people) ate:

If you look closely you can spot me on the middle window, sitting there, with my mint-green bag!

Our table:

And last but not least the freshly-married couple with their amazing wedding cake! 

Looking back it was an amazing, funny, emotional and beautiful day, I loved re-seeing my family and dance, drink, sing, laugh and scream with them!

I hope you like the pictures! I just love weddings and I'm so looking forward to the next one!

Now I really have to go sleeping because I'm leaving for PARIS tomorrow! So excited! 

Looking forward to your comments/opinions!

Lots of love from the tired, and excited Lory xoxoxoxo

  10. Dearest Lory, first: you look absolutely beautiful and the dress including the accessoires is perfect for the wedding <3 Es war eine echt gute Idee von Dir, dass Du Wedges angezogen hast, denn es gibt nichts Schlimmeres als High Heels im Gras - außerdem passen sie perfekt zu Deinem wunderbaren Outfit!

    Und dann: vielen Dank für die supertollen Bilder! Ja, der kleine Ringebringer, der schaut wirklich unglaublich süß aus und die Braut ist wunderwunderschön. Überhaupt gefällt mir die ganze Location sehr. Und dass es heiß war, kann ich mir nach Deiner Beschreibung nur zu gut vorstellen ...

    Von meiner Seite wünsche ich dem Brautpaar alles Liebe und Gute und vor allem viel Glück!

    Thank you so much, dearest Lory, for sharing this great event with us <3

    Big hugs and kisses from Bavaria, Rena


    1. Hey Rena, like every time: Thanks for your absolutely sweet comment!
      Die Wedges waren wirklich eine gute Idee, man sah sehr viele mit High Heels die auf dem Kies und dem Gras nicht laufen konnten und es sah sehr... unelegant und entenhaft aus haha.

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment!

      Loads of love from Paris,
      Lory XOXO
