This incredibly beautiful wedding in Italy brought friends and family together from all over the world. Already officially married in a civil ceremony in the UK, Anjali and Porus celebrated with all of their loved ones at Il Borro Estate in Italy. They booked True Blue Ceremonies to create a unique and personal ceremony, and chose top Italian wedding planner Elegante by Michelle J to plan their day.

The wedding day itself was totally unique and we planned it so that it felt relaxed, informal and joyous for Anjali, Porus and their guests. Anjali was radiant in a short, sparkly feathered dress and striking pink heels, just another way of making the day feel more like ‘them’.” ~ Elegante by Michelle J

I am absolutely smitten with this amazing London wedding. If you love peonies, you’re in for a treat! Bianca and Jordan were wed at Fairmont Hotel Windsor Park, a grand country house on the edge of historic Windsor Great Park.  The day was planned and beautifully styled by Michelle and her team of luxury wedding planners at Elegante by Michelle J. The happy couple look fabulous – follow our insta for some incredible dress pics over the weekend!

No wedding is ever weather-proof! However, having a Plan B for rain on your wedding day can save you from heartache and stress! I stumbled across Elegante by Michelle J’s blog about rainy day wedding planning and had to share her genius tips with you. In Michelle’s own words, “As much as we don’t want to think about the possibility of wet weather weddings, any wedding planner worth their salt will tell you it’s vital to always have a ‘wet weather plan’ just in case – no matter the location or time of year!

This stunning wedding in Tuscany was sent in by English Wedding member and luxury destination wedding planner Elegante by Michelle J. It’s the most wonderful inspiration for couples planning a wedding in Italy, and showcases one of Tuscany’s loveliest venues: Villa Orlando.

Natasha and Marc’s vision for their wedding day was to get married overlooking a lake, and on our venue search trip to Italy they knew Villa Orlando was the one immediately. It’s a privately owned villa on the edge of the lake. Their guests all stayed about 20 minutes away in Viareggio which is one of Tuscany’s coastal resorts, and we held their welcome party in a beach club. The venue was kept a secret until the day of the wedding.

Today’s real wedding is an absolute stunner. A two-day celebration in beautiful Italy, styled and planned to perfection by English Wedding member and luxury destination wedding planner Elegante by Michelle J. Michelle and her team created the perfect setting for the happy couple, styling their venues with such wonderful attention to detail… it’s one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve ever seen!
