Eleganza Real Bride: Stefania



How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My eleganza experience was truly magical from start to finish, it was such a lovely experience going to every dress fitting as I loved having another opportunity to try on my beautiful dress, the girls were all so lovely and accommodating aswell which made my experience even better.


Would you like to share with us your proposal moment, favourite part of planning your wedding or what you have planned for your honeymoon?

My proposal happened in Rome in the summer, we were on holiday in Italy and went to Rome for the day, whilst there we did all the touristy things and one of those was visiting the beautiful Borghese gardens so we went to villa Borghese, whilst walking through the park we then spotted a lovely lake with little boats in it, stefano said let’s go on one, I can’t swim and don’t like water so I was a bit reluctant to get onto one but with much persuasion from stefano I decided to give it a go and so we got onto one of the boats, once we were on and had rowed around the lake stefano got on one knee on the boat and proposed with the ring of my dreams, other people that were in the water then started applauding, it really was so romantic and such a special moment I’ll never forget.


Tell us more about your Martina Liana gown!

The Dress was exactly what I had in my head, it was slim fitting which was the shape I had always wanted but I also added an over skirt which completely transformed the dress and was just so stunning. It had lace through it and a low back. It was the second dress I tried on and as soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one, I just felt like it was made for me.


What was your inspiration for your wedding? Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette?

My theme for my wedding was Gold and blush pink, I used gold as I love all things Gold and also have a Gold theme going on in my house so had to use it for my wedding and also thought the soft blush pinks complimented the gold nicely.


Tell us more about your Big Day!

My wedding was in Italy as that is where I had always dreamt of getting married, my day started very early with a 5am wake up and the makeup artist and hairdresser arrived at my house shortly after to get started on myself and the rest of the bridal party. We had some refreshments and a band outside my house where guests arrived to see us all coming out of the house before heading to the church, after that we had our ceremony in our local church in the small village that is called picinisco. After we said our vows and were officially husband and wife we got professional pictures in picinisco and then headed to our venue in our wedding car which was a beautiful white Porsche.
Our venue was about an hour away from our church and was called Villa Amorosa di Fumone which was a lovely villa with beautiful grounds, we had appetisers outside before heading inside for our meal, our band were great and played a great mixture of music so everyone could join in and dance the night away. We had the speeches towards the end of the meal and stefano also played Ed Sheeran perfect on the piano for me which was such a lovely moment that I’ll remember forever. We then headed outside where all the desserts were laid out and where we cut our cake, we had a Dj and saxophone player outside whilst we had our desserts and where everyone could continue dancing until midnight. We then ended our night just after midnight and our driver took us straight to positano where we had our minimoon.



What was the most memorable moment?

The most memorable moment was walking down the aisle with my Dad and seeing stefano smiling at me from the alter, stefano playing the piano for me was another special and memorable moment


Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day? Why is this image so special to you?

I have too many favourite pictures and couldn’t possibly just pick one as they were all special in their own way
