Authentic & Magical Wedding in Milan

Milan Wedding Rossella Putino Photographer

Italy is top of my travel wish list and I so enjoyed being transported to Milan for the beautiful wedding celebrations of Martina and Luigi. They were married in a Church ceremony in the heart of Milan, before travelling into the countryside for their reception at Cascina Boscaccio, which was held on the 29th September 2018. Both settings really were extraordinarily picturesque and created the perfect backdrop to their day.

They had some really wonderful touches to their wedding, with divine stationery, a gorgeous buttercream cake and rustic wooden signs to name but a few. I also really love the pretty florals and the bouquets in particular with those spectacular blush roses. Our pair really looked so stylish in their chosen attire too, as did their wedding party.  Come evening the outdoor space was lit up with the most magical lighting, it created such a fantastic atmosphere.

I am sure you will agree that Rossella Putino Photographer captured their wedding just perfectly and we are so thankful to be sharing these sublime images with you.

The Vision

Our wedding is inspired by “A GOOD YEAR” Movie, we love everything about it: The story, the setting, the wine, the irony of the vicissitude and at the same time the really important theme of the family; a reflection on what is really important in life ….and love, sweet love and passionate love!

Forgive my lips. They find joy in the most unusual places.

The Planning Process

It was a mix of emotions and sensations:

Anxiety and excitement, happiness and nervousness..

Thanks to the right organization we managed to do everything; first location and church, or better…first, one of the most important things (for me!!) the photographer!

After that, gradually we organized all other activities and plans, sometimes easily and other times with some difficulties.

It was really important in this process the great help of our families.

Your Outfits & Accessories

The Dress

Stylist: Allessandra Rinaudo, Boutique: Nicole Spose (Milan)

I chose that dress because I was looking for something simple but stylish and a bit sophisticated. I fell in love with his lace, his “demi-siren” model was perfect to me!

I completed my style with a beautiful pearl and crystal belt (from the same boutique) and similar earrings (“La Porta Blu” jewelry). Also my silk organza veil was from Nicole Spose Boutique.

The most difficult search was that of shoes. I love shoes..so they had to be perfect!! Finally I chose a total white “d’Orsey” model from “Aquazzura” Milan Boutique, a dream!

Beauty

For hairstyle and makeup I hired two teachers from CFP Milan Academy and their best two students for my bridesmaids.

The Readings & Music

For ceremony I contacted an extraordinary couple of musicians, organist and violinist, who – in particular for my wedding march – managed to create an arrangement of the melody “Nuvole Bianche” by Ludovico Einaudi, one of the favourite musicians of my husband. It was a surprise for him!!

We chose two different types of music:

For the welcome buffet we hired “Ladies in Tune”, three young swing live singers. It was a success!

During the dinner we choose background music from soundtracks of “A good Year” movie.

For the night party, music was from a party DJ. We danced till 3.00 pm!

Both collaborate with “Matrimoni&Musica” Agency, which has its headquarters in Novara.

The Flowers

Florist: Caterina Maurini

We chose pastel tone of pink, peach and green (different types of roses and delicate laurel) and obviously a touch of purple (cosmos dark flowers) to remind of red wine ;)

The style: definitely bucolic

In addition to the classic settings and the bouquet we had:

-Four little bouquets for bridesmaids

-Buttonhole flowers for groom, fathers and groom’s witness (his brother)

-Flower bracelet for bride’s witness (my sister)

Caterina did great work!

Your Photographer

PH: Rossella Putino

I chose Rossella’s style for her spontaneous and extremely real way of capturing life. I wished a natural and flowing work, which would impress real moments, palpable sensations.. nothing sham.. she was able to really tell “the butterflies in the stomach” feel that day!

Her photos sing, dance and they will always make me smile!
