I’ve made no secret of the fact that if I were to marry Mr STG again, it would be in the gorgeous ‘boot’ of Southern Europe. There is simply something magical about Italy. It feeds the soul. It conjures up a world in our imagination and touches so many thanks to it’s art, fashion, culture, food, climate and collection of insanely contrasting but always stunning vistas.
A destination wedding in Italy is one thing but trying to choose where to have it is another. How to pick from the sun-drenched Tuscan olive groves, Venice and all its romantic splendour, Florence and its history and elegance, Rome and its Dolce Vita cityscape, the sophisticated glamour of the Amalfi coast or snowy, classy Cortina D’Ampezzo?
But, like reading a book, everyone comes away with their own interpretation of Italy’s best bits.
And that’s why if you’re thinking of having your Jewish wedding there, I think it’s a pretty good idea to turn to a group of experts who can take on the challenge of understanding your vision, building on it and ultimately realising your dream wedding.
Well today’s your lucky day because I’ve found exactly who you’re looking for: SposiamoVi are superior Italian wedding planners who I first discovered through Olivia and Jacob’s breathtaking Jewish wedding that took place in Florence. I blogged it last year but this is a wedding that will stay with me for a very long time and you must check it out if you haven’t already. The, style, planning and delivery of it are simply astonishing. Once I had seen what SposiamoVi were capable of with this wedding, I snapped up them right away as Smashing Suppliers.
SposiamoVi was set up ten years ago by Alice, an interior designer and Cinzia, an event organiser and they currently boast offices in Florence, Portofino and Amalfi.
They’re an awesome team of high-achieving and inspired wedding planners. Armed with a golden rolodex of trusted suppliers right across Italy, they provide local knowledge and know-how and with a team of creative directors, stylists and designers to hand, they can turn your wedding into an art form.
Stylish, polished and, oh so memorable, SposiamoVi say they create a once-in-a-lifetime wedding experience, geared towards offering the bride and groom (I love this phrase) a ‘stress-free environment’.
But how do they do this?
Well, from the beginning, they make sure they’ve totally got a handle on the vision, style and expectations of the couple and it helps no end that they have a thorough understanding of Jewish traditions and requirements. Only then do they set about creating a choice of customised looks for the event.
And with a forensic eye to detail, they quite simply think and take care of everything – from sorting out the all-important and dreary legal documents, to helping you find THE perfect venue, to seamlessly guiding you through the day. SposiamoVi can, among other things, organise the wedding dress, a bridal assistant and dressing service, flowers, music, kosher food choices and fireworks. They even offer a full-on concierge service for all your guests, organising weekend activities as well as their accommodation.
And while it’s not on their website, should you want a dozen white doves flapping off as you smash the glass, I’m sure it could be arranged, just watch out for the chuppah!
Italy gives you a green light to be passionate and embrace the vivacity of your wedding — the mà©lange of love, food, family, friends and merry-making. But a wedding should also be a thing of beauty — be that in the simplest of forms or by taking style and imagination to another level. It is after all an expression of the couple. And that’s what SposiamoVi understand and deliver.
Why not see for yourself — check out SposiamoVi’s website and flick through the gallery and the testimonials for a real sense of what magic they can weave. They also have a dedicated Jewish wedding website named www.jewishweddingitaly.com which I can guarantee you’ll be swooning over.
