The wedding event started off with a Pizzanight and our staff put on traditional Italian countryside clothing while our pizza bakers were doing some acrobatic pizza preparation. The lebanese couple has chosen a Christian ceremony performed in English, French and Arab at the poolside of a beautiful borgo overlooking the Tuscan landscape. Typical percussion and flag throwing have done a beautiful performance to the central square of the Borgo and grand finale was a acrobatic fire dancing performance that concluded in a firework! The last day our staff welcomed the guests at the poolside and later they could enjoy a picnic either on a country chic set up or on especially created areas with pillows and colorful blankets.
The hotel has been totally dedicated to this event for 4 days. About a hundred international guests stayed at the hotel for three nights, fully enjoying its services and its spaces set up specifically for the event as per the newlyweds request.
More than 100 people of staff have been involved in this wedding, both from brazil and Italy.
Each day saw the realization of an event in different location of the property: the pool party in Nikky Beach style, the Italian night in an amazing country chich style at the farmhouse garden of our villa, whilst the the ceremony took place at the Italian Garden, where sofas and chairs were set up, a gazebo covered by flowers with the backdrop of violinists.
The Sangeet – pre wedding party- took place in Stazione Leopolda on 2015, november 26th. We had been involved in the organization of the big night that celebrated the wedding of Rohan Mehta (son of Yogesh Mehta, managing director of the Petrochem Middle East) and Roshni Khem.
The fil rouge of the night was “Alice in Wonderland”. The entire set-up reassumed this theme and acrobats, jugglers, dancers, fire-eaters and drummers animated the event.
The 500 guests, all wearing traditional dresses, were welcomed in the main courtyard set up for the occasion as a circus. At the centre of the longest nave of Stazione Leopolda it was reproduced a fontain with the shape of an elephant (one of the most important symbol of the Hindu religion) covered by glittering mosaic tiles.
After dinner, it was time for dancing. Both the family of the bride and the groom took the stage to perform traditional dances. Acrobats and artists joined again the guests who dance until early in the morning.
The amazing wedding ceremony has been organized in the garden of the Castle, followed by the delicious aperitif. The dinner has been served in the romantic courtyard, with a spectacular setting for 120 guests, and during the evening they could admire the wedding cake cut under the ancient Cedar of Lebanon. All the location has been staged with fairy lights, torches, candles and hanging lanterns chandeliers; this dreamy atmosphere has been perfect for the dancing party. The elegant style and soft music have gladdened all guests during this fairy-tale wedding.
