If you are drawn to the mythical charm of Nordic legends, if you are a fan of Lord of the Rings, if you dream of organising your wedding in an enchanted forest inhabited by fairies or if you want to declare your eternal love looking out over windswept Irish moorland, I can help you!
By Celtic wedding in Italy I am not referring to some form of ritual inspired by druids or a ceremony in fancy dress, but a setting characterised by this magical world, which we can rework on different levels, including the concept for the wedding ceremony itself.
Ideas for a Celtic wedding
My Wedding Design service is ideal for helping you to create a concept for the decorations, and implementing it in the ceremony, myth-inspired details, symbols or characters from Celtic culture and tradition, wild flower and berry decorations, handwritten invitations and wedding favours with auspicious symbols.
The music is, as ever, crucial to creating the right atmosphere: traditional English and Irish folk, hurdy-gurdies, bagpipes, flutes and group dances all warm up the atmosphere. This unusual, evocative music, together with the creative possibilities for the decorations, are what intrigue me most about this style of wedding.
Venues for a Celtic wedding in Italy (and more)
Turning to the possible venues, the ideal setting for a Celtic wedding is without a doubt in Ireland or the Scottish Highlands, with just a few guests at a medieval abbey among the greenery, followed by celebrations in a castle. And if that classic hazy mist comes to greet you on your big day, take it as a creative contribution to the atmosphere most suited to your ceremony.
If, on the other hand, you wish to marry this side of the Channel, that is in Italy, there are many venues up to the challenge of creating the right atmosphere: Giol castle, San Galgano abbey, La Badia restaurant in Orvieto, a Romanesque parish church hidden in a clearing, a forest in the Friulian hills or a farmstead immersed in nature.
Who is this style of wedding for?
Celtic weddings with such a strong style identity are certainly recommended for couples who love Nordic folklore, for those who devoured Tolkien’s books, and for those who imagine an elf making an appearance on their big day or a leprechaun being hidden among the guests at their wedding.GET IN TOUCH
