Beautiful Saudi couple Nedim and Iman had their dream destination wedding in Florence at Villa di Maiano, and our team planned all the details of this fabulous wedding.
The wedding that took place on 23rd May 2023, had an Arabian theme that created a lasting impression on everyone. The decorations focused on olive trees and candles, which made the atmosphere warm and rustic.
The celebration started with a Welcome Drink offered in the Italian gardens of the villa that have a fantastic view of Florence. This set a joyful and enchanting mood for the rest of the evening. During the aperitivo time, guests enjoyed delicious food in the beautiful gardens of the villa.
Villa di Maiano, a 15th-century villa near Florence where the 1985 movie Room with a View was filmed, was transformed into a stunning Arabian oasis with olive branches, gold accents, and flickering candles. The courtyard was adorned with orchids, Roman Medici accessories, and candlelight, which mesmerized the wedding guests.
The olive trees symbolize peace and abundance and blended well with the Mediterranean and Italian influences. The soft candlelight added a romantic feel to the venue. A touch of Arabic style also was added to the decoration and concept of this beautiful wedding.
In the beautiful tapestry room of Villa di Maiano, the dinner atmosphere was magical, which was inspired by trees and nature. Surrounded by a garden of olive trees, the inspiration for the dinner decoration, was all trees with white flowers and candles. The band added a touch of romance to the dinner and infused the evening with Arabian vibes.
