The Castello di Vincigliata on the hills around Fiesole was the perfect setting for Anastasia and Benoit with 150 and more guests coming from all over the world. Benoit is an important manager on the Formula 1 world and the wedding was an occasion to meet also some important VIP drivers and enterpreineurs including Alberto’s teenage idol Jean Alesi.
The extraodinary weekend was planned to host a welcome cocktail in the heart of Florence, a chill out athmosphere, full of modern gaze and vibes. The hosts, Benoir and Anastasia, welcomed all guests with glass of champagne and cocktails.
The wedding ceremony was in the beautiful church of St James where David Bowie, Tammin Sursok (we plan her wedding click here) and other well know artists and actors got married in the recent years. One of the most important Italian tenors, part of La Scala in Milan and Arena di Verona on Summer operas, really heat and emotioned all guests. He has been the most amazing Tenor we have ever heard live on a wedding, ever! We were so glad he accepted to sing on such an exclusive day!
What was so important for Anastasia and Benoit was the party. They wanted to start dancing immediately at their arrival at the castle and keep going until the morning after! And so it was! After a nice relaxing cocktail, with the summer breeze of the Florence hills, we moved in a real party athmosphere where dances, singing, speeches and food were all mixing one to the other. 160 guests all dancing, all the time, until 5 in the morning. Never seen on a western wedding!
The day after, the brunch was held also in a magnificient villa, Villa di Maiano, on a casual athmosphere, where also Sonia and Alberto could finally enjoy a good glass of wine in total relax after the long planning of such an extraordinary wedding in Italy! Thank you Anastasia and Benoit, we remember you with so much love!!!
