A wonderful 1920s-inspired wedding! The style of the Benedetta & Simon event is inspired by the “Great Gatsby” atmospheres, that take us back in time to the years of Coco Chanel, Charleston, jazz… Photographing this wedding is a joy, because we relive an era that marked a revolution in fashion and costume.

A 1920s-inspired wedding in Italy
Let’s start by saying that the wedding venue is Tenuta Fontanafredda, which everyone knows as one of the top locations in the Langhe, Unesco Heritage in Italy. In particular, the setting up of the ceremony is in the Bosco dei Pensieri, outdoors, to experience this summer day in complete contact with nature.
Benedetta & Simon get ready in different rooms. Simon completes his dress with the famous “Great Gatsby” hat. Benedetta wears the white dress and perfects her look with the help of the make-up artist Erika Finotti.
Congratulations to Maria Rizzi of RZ Event for organizing the wedding. An event in which every single one of the guests enjoyed the theme and spirit of the day. The photos speak for themselves! And the beautiful floral arrangements you see are by Elisabetta Capra, who perfectly interpreted the era in which “luxury” had the meaning of “elegance”.
Benedetta and Simon get married in the shade of the trees of the Bosco dei Pensieri, with the ritual of hand fasting, a custom of Celtic origins in which the hands of the couple are symbolically tied with colored ribbons, before the wedding promise.
The day has just begun!
Reception at Tenuta Fontanafredda, Serralunga d’Alba
Tenuta Fontanafredda is ready to welcome guests and begin the banquet. It is a wedding based on eco-sustainability, which the bride knows very well: on her Instagram page Nel Mio Piccolo she gives excellent advice, ideas and inspirations to the many people who try to improve their daily living respecting the environment around us.
In this context, the presence of a craft brewery – Sta Brau, from Bra – is perfect, with excellent beer for the benefit of thirsty guests and an several toast!
And the music? To create a setting perfectly in tune with the 1920s, you need superfine musicians, and there is nothing better than Daniele Pavignano’s band.
Thus began a great 1920s-style wedding reception, with Benedetta and Simon as protagonists. Around the tables decorated with vases full of feathers, festive toasts between the girls in looks rich in lace, silk, strings of pearls, feathered hair bands, and the boys with papillons, light hats, and cigars between their lips…
The atmosphere takes off with the wedding games that involve the spouses, and flies very high with the great dances at the end of the evening. These are the “1920s” that we like, that make us fall in love, that make us dream!
