Today I’m delighted to bring you Lilith and Andrew’s beautiful Italian Riviera Wedding planned for them by the very talented SposiamoVi and photographed by David Christian Lichtag. Lilith and Andrew travelled with their guest from the UK to Santa Margherita Ligure to celebrate their wedding.

Santa Margherita Ligure is a lively and colourful old fashioned coastal resort on the jet-set Italian Riviera…

Lilith and Andrew instantly fell in love with their wedding venue when they first saw it… an aristocratical residence, Villa Durazzo, secluded in an Italian garden crossed by paths in traditional black and white pebbles, called risseu. Built on a hill in 1678 as a summer home, it was temporarily transformed into a Grand Hotel welcoming several VIP of the period. Today it has hosted Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster’s wedding and more recently Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin exchaged vows in the stunning hall adorned with tapestries and chandeliers.

Lilith’ and Andrew’s wedding ceremony was held in the Salone Degli Stucchi room, beneath a beautiful Louis XVI chandelier. On the marble floor a pattern of fig leaves while the doors are decorated with pomegranates which symbolise fertility…

The Italian-style gardens and the secret paths winding down the park provide a beautiful background for photographs…

My mouth is watering at the sight of these delicious Italian canapés…

While guests enjoyed a lavish Italian style dinner, outside, in the romantic classical garden the wedding planners SposiamoVi were setting up the cake. Lots of ribbons and lanterns to accompany the sweetness and simplicity of the traditional Italian wedding cake made of Chantilly cream and delicious strawberries…

Each guest expressed a wedding wish for the newlyweds by lighting a sparkler and sealed it with a Prosecco toast…

Small Italian pastry was served at the bar while the DJ kept the party going until the early hours!

Thank you SposiamoVi for sharing Lilith and Andrew’s stunning wedding with us.
