Sophie & Oliver wanted to host a laid back yet elegant affair with a ceremony in the olive grove and a romantic al fresco dinner. However sometimes a little thing called the weather puts paid to these plans. Not that you can tell from these beautiful images by LISA POGGI PHOTOGRAPHY!

Clara from CHIC WEDDINGS IN ITALY who helped the couple plan their wedding says, Sophie & Oliver chose Conti di San Bonifacio Wine Resort for their wedding day as they were captured by its smart interior decor and its stunning exterior. They were keen to host the wedding outdoors, but unfortunately the weather played a trick on us and we had to move indoors for dinner. The result though was even more special with an extremely long banqueting table. The bride created her own stationery theme, which was also printed on the customized runner that decorated the crisp white linen tablecloth and on the personalized signs around the venue. We came up with the idea of a Caravan bar which was handcrafted by a local artist and built just for them in the pool garden. Mouthwatering cocktails were served by trendy bartenders throughout the night. Such a fun bash!

From LISA, Sophie and Oliver are one of a kind clients for us, we met them almost one year before their wedding day for engagement pictures and civil ceremony and this allowed us to create an amazing friendship bond that is not common in our business. Hearing them thank us in their evening speeches with such love and respect melted our hearts and almost made us cry! I think that this kind of bond helped us made amazing shots during the most perfect day ever regarding light and colors. Conti di San Bonifacio has amazing views and spectacular colors that created a perfect fit with the color palette Sophie had chosen. What a blast!
